24P is not possible with your PAL camcorder. Shoot in Frame mode. It will approximate a 25P look. There's no visual difference between 25P and 24P, so you're good to go.

Whats the frame mode? Where do I set that?

Also, what does 25p actually mean and what does it do?

Thanks.

CL 8-120mm lense on an XL1?

Is there an adapter that I can get to fit a Canon CL 8-120mm Macro lense onto my Canon XL1?

Or will it fit already?


Thanks

The VL series lenses were for the Canon L1 and L2 Hi8 camcorders. They were designed for a half inch CCD and will not fit the XL-series. There is no commercially offered adapter, and there is good reasons to question whether or not it would provide acceptable performance on the XL series if an adapter was available.

This is discussed in more depth in an article on the XL1 watchdog pages:
