Yes, the LS-21A stud will work fine on the XL1 and is included with the MFKIC-XL1 Frezzi kit designed for that camera. See http://www.frezzi.com/newpage6.htm

Greetings

i would suggest Ebay if you know your way around staying away from a grey market purchase. As far as the viewfinder you will need one. Even if you use a monitor there are menu functions not displayed in the monitor to change your settings.

I will repeat watch out for grey market camera searching for a good deal.

Personally, and that is my humble opinion, I would not buy such
a pricey item from something like eBay. The risk is just way to high
I think! I prefer to know where I bought it with warranty etc...

Yes, it's called "ClearScan". It slightly adjusts the shutter speed to avoid flicker. Check your manual (if you have an XL1s), or you can download the manual from www.canondv.com/downloads/manuals.html if you don't.

LCD Monitor comparisons

Hey Folks,
Has anyone used the NEB50XL, or VariZooms VZ-TFT monitor? I see that there is quite a difference in price. What's important to me is picture quality and WYSIWYG framing. I'm also curious how long VariZooms battery lasts. I did read a post by Charles Newcomb about what seems like a good bang for the buck assembling his own kit. Any one else done that?

Thanks for your help!
- Eric

Hi Eric, in this business you always get what you pay for. The Nebtek monitor is more expensive than the VariZoom and is higher quality. The VariZoom is an excellent monitor for the budget-minded. Its battery lasts about three hours. I've always believed that you should buy the best you can afford. If you can afford the Nebtek, go for it. If you're on a budget, the VariZoom will work just fine for you. Hope this helps,

New Varizoom Monitor?

Chris, I notice that the monitor Varizoom is selling now looks different from the one I purchased about a year ago. Have you evaluated the new one and how would you compare it to the original? Do you know why they changed?

Hi,

Can anyone tell me the quickest and most affordable way to transfer PAL footage to a NTSC compatible tape or dvd? Any advice greatly appreciated.

Melissa,

There are several PAL to NTSC transfer shops in the New York area. If you do a Google search on "PAL to NTSC transfer, New York" you will get a long list of companies who do this type of work. You can also do a Google search on: "Post Production, New York"

Hope this helps.

XL1s audio...crapped out?

I've had my XL1s for about 4 months now. I got done with a project about 3 weeks ago, and then, the audio was fine. Today, we started another project, and I got home to capture the video...only to find out that there was no audio attached, so I plug some headphones into my camera to check it. No audio. I record some new stuff and check it. No audio. I put the camera on both manual and automatic mode...no audio. I unplug the thing, check the connections, still, no audio.

What has happened, and how do i fix it?

In what way is there no audio?

Do you have audio when you play previously recorded tapes known to have audio?

Do you get any indication on the VU meter?

Do you have the correct input selected (Audio 1 or built-in mic)?

Is the input level set correctly (e.g., MIC for a mic level input)?

If in record mode, is the output minitor set to the input?

wow...thanks it's fixed. I had to switch the input from "Audio 1" to "Mic"...which is weird, since I haven't changed that setting since I got the camera. Anyway, after i switched the input I began getting readings on the VU meter. Thanks again, your reply was very appreciated!
