fix for xl1

I would suggest using a product called JB Weld if you are dealing with metal. It appears to be part of the body framework which is a magnesium alloy.

Hope this helps. I noticed you are located not far from me. Just down the road in Plano.

regards,

Where did it break? Mine once broke at the neck, right up by the where the viewfinder slides on. I used SuperGlue and 6 " black plastic "tie-downs" (Home Depot). CAREFULLY put on the glue and then pull the straps on as tight as you can with pliers. Then, using a sharp knife cut off the remaining plastic tie.

xl1 no tape display

Hello,
Could somebody please help. I have just bought a xl1. I powered it up and switched to record mode and put a brand new tape in it but in the viewfinder it is displaying that there is no tape. I'm sure or hoping that it is something simple that I have missed out. I would be very grateful for an answer to this problem. Thank you.
Alan.

Did you push the tape carriage until it locked in place? Or did you just close the outer door?

I've not worked with such an adapter, but if I'm not mistaken
you can either not zoom through them (ie, pick your focal length
before you shoot the scene -> which is a good practice anyway)
or you have a shorter than normal zoom range.

Some testing might be in order before you decide to actually
shoot something with it in my opinion.

I'm trying to understand what you are trying to do.

Your NLE package needs to support 4-track in order to receive 4-track across the DV (firewire) connector. Not all NLEs do (I think Premiere does).

If your NLE does not you can get a program called Scenalyzer that will. You can then import the audio into your NLE.

Someone else will have to answer whether the S will output 4-track analog through the audio input connectors. On the older XL-1, analog audio will be output through the headphone connector. The 3 options allow you to select either main, sub, or mix by pressing the audio monitoring button.

Hope this helps,

As Nathan notes, many NLE's/capture software/drivers do not support 4-channel capture via firewire. But if you did record 4-channel, the XL1 will output 4-channel on firewire. Check the specifications of your NLE capture system to see if 4-channel is supported. [Canon is ahead of most MiniDV camcorder makers in supporting 4-channel audio.]

You can obtain 4-channel analog output as well on playback. Output is from the Audio1 and Audio2 jacks. Details are in the manual on page 61.

My XL1S can't playback.

I have 2 cassettes.
First, I shoot with canon XL1S.
Second, I shoot with other camera.

The first and the second cassette can't playback in my XL1S camera. There are noise in my audio, the video is good.
But when the first and the second cassette, I playback with other camera, the result is good.
Why that can happen ??? My XL1S can shoot, but can't palyback.

Thanks for your help.

I am not completely sure I understand your problem.

Question 1:
Does the audio recorded on the second cam play OK on the XL-1S?
Yes - XL-1 is probably OK.
No - Configuration error or faulty XL-1.

Question 2:
When you play your recording on the NLE (computer's editing package) is the audio OK? When you render back to the camera is audio OK through headphones?

If you cannot get the audio correct on the XL-1 at this point, check you audio setting and read the sections in manual about audio. If you are using 4-track, realize that audio monitor must be set to mix or sub in order to hear the other audio channels.

If after all this it is still not working it is possible that the XL-1 does have a fault.

Question 1 :
No, the audio recorded on the second cam can't play OK.

Question 2 :
When I play on the NLE and through headphones, the audio isn't OK.
I'm not using 4 track, I am using 16 bit audio.

I don't think it has any (except shutter?), since it all depends on
lighting etc. Shutter is probably 1/50th for PAL and 1/60th for NTSC.
