XL1 used in Snatch

While watching a doco on the making of Guy Ritchie's 'Snatch' low and behold what shows up as the security camera in the bookie....you guessed it....XL1.

A security cam??
I thought they were those tiny CCTV devices.
Talk about conspicuous!

You don't see it in the movie, but in the doco you can see it mounted on top of the set used to shoot the 'Bookie hold up scene'

Ohhhh I understand now......
Surely the XL1s picture quality isnt exactly comparable to a standard CCTV device?

Way above but it fits in with the 35mm well. Could you imagine if they did use a CCTV camera!! Guy Ritchie would be kicked off the lot!

It's right at the end of the doco. You'll see it at the top of the screen, but you'll have to be quick
