Post pics of your XL1/s rigs

Well I don't think this has been done yet. Please post url links to pictures of your rig. I'm only interested in your rig with what you have attached to it and are able to carry/ attach to a tripod i.e. mini35, lcd monitor, matte boxes etc.

remember put the [url ] at the beginning and [ /url] at the end.

I guess i'll start...

Heres a low resolution picture:

Canon XL1
MA200 XLR adapter
5.6" LCD monitor
Wireless EV100 mic

Its not as much as some peoples but it does the job!

Cheers,

Ed

nice ... just curious on the sennheiser receiver pack: since it is stock with mini rts, what adapter did you use to go into the ma200? Is this an accessory cable available from sennheiser?

I have an xlr samson that I would like to replace with the sennheiser 100...

Thanks - Jimmy.

This picture will have to do for now...

The only things not "standard" are the Hoodman and a 5500 mA
(non-canon) battery.

Sure

I'm the guy holding the camera.
Here's one of me and the camera "working" at the David Ledbetter Golf Academy at Champion's Gate, Florida.

Here's a cast photo on the set of a video I did last fall. Again, I'm holding the camera.

Here's forum member Keith Loh setting up some XL1's for an indie project we helped a friend out with. Feel free to make fun of our wussie tripods in this one. (we both have "real" tripods now)

Jimmy,

The ev100 is attached to the ma200 via the battery plate supplied with the ma200. The ev100 uses mini jack and so I brought a mini jack to xlr adapter cable. Sometimes I just plug it straight into the on-board mic socket.

Rob,
Have you not got anymore accessories?

Dylan,
Nice, nice, nice love the matte box. I'm even surprised that the tripod in the back could even hold such a camera!!!

Come on need more... Don't be shy...

Ed

Here's mine with the FireStore FS-3 mounted onto an Anton Bauer QR-XL1-C with a Dolgin Brace Classic, BeachTek DXA-4C, Canon B&W viewfinder, TIFFEN TELE-2X viewfinder magnifier, Canon 16X manual/ Servo lens, Chrosziel matte box and Manfrotto 542ART carbon fiber sticks/ 505 head.

If I need to do wireless audio, I simply mount my two Sennheiser EW100 receivers behind the QR-XL1-C.

I'm afraid not Ed. I would like to get some other things but the
money is not allowing it at the moment. A nice shoulder support,
steadicam and harddisk recording unit would be nice.... Heh.

Don,
Where did you find the Viewfinder Magnifier? Tiffen doesn't have it on their website, and B&H only carries them for Sony and Ikegama.

Hi Steve,

Unfortunately there is no model for the Canon color EVF - but it probably wouldn't be too difficult to fandangle the Ikegami model onto the color EVF with gaff tape? Or how about using a close-up diopter in front of the color EVF? hmmmmm...

The model I am using is the WAVFIKEGAMI TELE-2X - which fits the Canon B&W EVF perfectly as it is manuafactured by Ikegami.

I pretty much only use the B&W EVF these days.

Well, here's my setup:

XL1 (not S)
MA100
Anton Bauer Ultra Light 2
Anton Bauer battery mount, giving juice to both the camera and the Ultra Light 2
Sennheiser UW100 receiver, mounted with Velcro to the tape door (mounting it to the back of the AB batteryplate gave a hissy noise, there's a transfo in that plate ...

Jan,

Does the e100 not put strain on the tape door when you open and close it. Or it must be annoying if you take it on and off when inserting a tape.

I guess you don't use playback though the camera as much, being that you have ties holding the cables to the handle,

Nice pics, like the anton battery and light.

Ed

It's hard to see, but it looks like the straps are just outside of
the playback control area? Nice setup indeed. And jan, "bedankt"
for the article! Great read.
