Shooting 1:1 Macro video on XL H1

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience shooting 1:1 Macro video footage on a Canon XL H1. If so can you describe specifics about the lens/adapter used to achieve the desired effect? Was the quality satisfactory?

Thanks in advance for any input.

I've taken such shots with the EF-adapter and 100mm and 200mm Canon EF-lenses. Works out fine in my opinion and experience.

Maro,
I have used a Sigma 150mm 1:1 macro f/2.8 and ef-adapter with Canon XL2. I will guess that you get a better footage with the XLH1.

Look at a macro sample at:
