Canon XL H1 fimout - Awesome!

CineForm has been involved in a filmout test for the XL H1 initated by Robert Margouleff at Mi Casa Multimedia, and managed by Scott Billups. In a word, it's "Awesome". For those interested, we've written about the filmout at http://cineform.blogspot.com/.

For a moment I was thinking that you meant that you did a transfer to 35 mm..

Anyhow, a nice article, thanks!

David,

you made a reference to how it went to tape. that is the likely source of confusion.

Totally my error - I apologize - I had a typo in the post. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. It should be fixed now. For clarity - yes the transfer was to 35mm!

My own experience with the H1 has led me to believe it is a truly remarkable camcorder. If you record from the HD-SDi output the images are just stunning. It dosn't surprise me to hear that it looks good after transfer to 35mm. I am currently considering a Sony F330 HD XDCAM, but I am not convinced it's actually going to produce images any better than the H1. I love my H1 and it is now my camera of choice on almost every shoot I do from corporate to broadcast. I have a DSR570 and Sony Z1 that are both now gathering dust.

In the picture in report I see that xl is on mini35, so my question is, was there a mini35 footage also blown out to film? If yes, how was it?

Levan, I believe most, if not all footage taken to 35mm was from the second day of the shoot at which we also had the F900 present. As I wasn't involved in choosing the filmout selects I'm not sure why there wasn't material from the first day too.

Hi Alastair,

I see you own a lot camera's. I've got an FX1 and am very happy with it, but if I were to get a second camera I'd be looking at the XL1H, I see you've had some good experience with it, I take it that Chroma Fringing is not a problem with it some have mentioned? I hate CF btw.
And is it true, as some say, that the Canon HDV produces better colour than the Z1 when tranferred directly onto 4:2:2 tape like DigiB? I suspect you may have experience of this?

Again please excuse my questions :)

While I'm still in LA... I was wondering if those involved in the film out could set up another screening...

Thanks Gary
