Any news of recently announced Hard Drive recorders?

Does anyone have information as to when the portable hard drive recorders announced at NAB might be available?

Any links or other information appreciated!

SP-100 replacement?

Does anyone actually use the SP-100 that comes bundled with the XL1s? I find the thing miserable to use. After spending a bundle on the camera I hate to invest in the MA-200, especially since I don't currently need the XLR jacks. Is there an alternative. A true "on the sholder" as opposed to an "against the sholder" pad like the SP-100?

Yes, see the Articles section of the XL1 Watchdog at www.dvinfo.net/xl1.htm -- look under Support Options.

The ma-100 and I'll assume the 200 pretty much suck too. The trouble is the body assy. and lens still stick too far out front for really good balance. I think I like snuggling up to the body with out any shoulder pads better. It gets the weight as far back as possible.

More reasons the xl1 footage looks good? It forces us on to tripods! Just can't be beat if we're serious about our video.

I've still got a monopod from photo, and think it'd help if it needs to be "handheld."

anyone use a matte box?

Just curious, I was wondering what the advantage of it other than using it for screw on filters

Monopod, XL1s, & National Geographic

I was watching national geographic channel and this guy was toting around an XL1s filming turtles and other junk in the outback. It was neat to see the camera in action and on tv, yet I've seen this camera in just about every porn set. Anyway, the main point of this post is to determine which monopod the guy was using on the show? Or if anyone has a suggestion of which is a good light pod. I dont want to use a tripod as I need mobility.

The camera is certainly versatile enough to be used for a broad variety of applications. That's why you'll find it everywhere from National Geographic on down. As far as monopods go, *any* monopod from the medium-sized Bogen on up is a good monopod.
