I use a crop in post to do 16:9, 1.85 & 2.35.... The only anamorphic
adapter available for the XL1 is in 16:9 format. See the following
page for more information:

Ryan,

I just tried posting to last thread without any problems. So I am not sure if it was locked or there was a transient condition.

Ear bud monitors?

Anyone tried the Westone UM1 earbud monitors with an XL1? In a noisy environment? if so, how were they?

EX Series?

Hello!

I have come across a 3x VIDEO LENS FOR EX SERIES 5-15mm - can you tell me whether or not this will work with an XL1?

THANK YOU!

Dylan

What are the chances for a DV-50 XL series camera?

If I understand it correctly, DV-50 uses 4:2:2 compression and produces an image on par with Digibeta. I know that this is format only and that the rest of the camera has to be able to take advantage of the benefits as well, but I can't help but wonder if Canon's next XL series camera might be DV-50.

To get digibeta quality in a DV stream through a FW port would be amazing. At least to me it would be. Apple's next FCP revision will supposedly support DV50 as will 800Mbps Firewire.

Maybe at NAB 2003?

We should have a little insight soon. FCP 4 should be released next month. I think we might get an announcement of a new camera as early as PMA. I'm sure Canon has not been sitting on their hands the last 18 months.

Audio Compatibility Issues

Audio recorded on my XL-1 plays back fine on the camera, but when used in either a Pansonic 1000 or 2000 deck, play back distorted, dropped out and metallic.

Things recorded on either Panasonic deck play back fine on the XL-1. I recently had the 2000 in for service and alignment and it was fine.

Next step is sending the XL-1 in for a tune-up. I'm wondering if this is a common problem on various decks? My plan was to use the Panasonic decks for editing/capturing and saving the heads on the camera. So far, that's not working if I need on camera sound.

Is the allignment so critical that even a slight amount of "out of wackness" makes it a problems across decks?

Bad audio (mainly dropouts) when playing my XL-1 tapes on the Panasonic 2000 deck was the first sign that the XL-1 heads were going out of alignment. This quickly migrated to bad video when played in the deck. I would try sending the camera in for repair and then the two should talk well together again.

BEFORE YOU SEND IT IN, dub all of your recent tapes from the camera to the deck. Once the camera is returned, it will probably not play the tapes correctly either!

The XL1 uses XL series video lenses. Can you give a pointer/URL for information about the EX series lens.

The 5-15 range is not much wider thatn the 5.5--88 range of the standard lens. It was the wide angle range offered by Canon in VL mount for the L1/L2 camcorders.

Audio Video Transmitter

I am looking to buy a audio/video transmitter that I can mount on my XL1 to send to a remote receiver to provide live audio & video. I only will need to send the signals up to 300-400 feet. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

You might want to take a look at this thread: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...&threadid=2373. It discusses sources for equipment and more importantly, the legalities of their use.

Hot Shoe mount

Does anyone know if the LS-21A hot shoe mounted light stud will fit on the XL-1 hot shoe? I'm looking to fit the standard light stud that fits on ENG cameras onto my XL-1 for a frezzi light. Thanks!!
