For the XL1 - Press the "Display" button on the remote control. It toggles the on-screen display in the analog output. (The default is "ON" when in camcorder mode, and "OFF" in VCR mode.)

And, if you need it, the manual is available as a free download at the Canon site.

Cheers,

Good technical documentation for the original XL1 viewfinder internals is not generally available that I am aware of. This link may provide some useful information. http://www.dvinfo.net/canon/articles/article29.php for your project.

Fogging viewfinder and regen

I am wondering how to keep my viewfinder from fogging, I shoot outdoor video during various weather conditions and have a problem fogging, I have tried fogtech and it does not seem to work, any suggestions? Also, I was wondering if any one knows how to set my XL1s to regen when I stick in a new tape!

Hi Jeff..........

The only cure I found for the fogging you mention was to keep my face a few mm's away from the eye cup so that it did not seal completely. Nothing else seemed to work.

Not quite sure I understand your Q about the tape and 'regen" tho'.

Canon sent me a viewfinder by mistake.

I sent in my XL1 for servicing and when it arrived back today there was a EVF included in the box. My original is here sitting in a box so now I have 2. Advice on getting in touch with Canon to see about returning it? I want to do the right thing, but they're going to cover shipping if they want this thing back.

I just feel sorry for the poor sap who got his/her camera back with the VF missing. Doh!

Good for you Jacob, wanting to do the right thing. The world needs more honest folks like you.

Jacob,

IS IT YOUR CAMERA? Seriously, check the serial numbers and make sure the right camera/viewfinder got sent back to the right owner.

Out of curiosity... roughly how much does it cost to get your XL1 serviced?

How do I remove the XL1s Viewfinder?

I feel kinda dumb. I read about people removing the view finder for storage but I don't see how to do it. When I loosen the locking nut, the viewfinder slides and hits a stop. I've searched around and I can't find a procedure. I give. How do you do it?
TIA

The slide stop is just to keep it from falling off accidently... be sure the viewfinder is unplugged and just be a little forceful sliding it off...
