Re: Video Output Location?

<<<-- Originally posted by James Emory : Hello Alexis. I noticed that the RCA video output is at the bottom of the row instead of at the top like on an XL-1. Is your camera an XL-1 or XL-1s? If it's an s model, why do you think they changed the location of the jack? -->>>

I have no idea, Its an XL1s and Video is on the Bottom.

It's the one that I whine about at

at the bottom of the page. I would appreciate it if you could (or anyone else) comment on the Nebtek Alexis.
Thanks,
Randy

Video Jack Location

Chris. Why is the composite video jack on the s model in a different location than on the standard model?

James

I'm not sure why they switched those jack locations between the XL1 and XL1S.

I think they probably moved it since yellow & white are hard to
keep apart and now you have both video connectors in one
place. I do find the new layout more logical.

That's a nice studio you have there Alexis! It would be nice if
you could add some pictures and info about it on this thread.

Video Jack

Thanks Rob. I guess it does make sense to have both video jacks next to one another but why didn't they do that from the beginning? My next question is why didn't they include a video cable made into the pigtail from the MA-200 for that convenient BNC connector which is not so convenient as it is? What were they thinking? Where do I get a 6" RCA video cable for that patch?

I tried a couple of variations on the same type mount that Alexis has devised, but my work involves some extreme variation in tilt, making it hard to see the monitor. As I'm sure you are all aware, you really need to be looking at the thing at just the right angle to see a decent picture.

My solution was to mount the monitor to the tripod head. This way the monitor pans with the camera but does not tilt. There are a couple of pictures that show this mount here (http://www.highdesertracing.com/. Click on the pictures for a slightly larger view.

The mount is made from a piece of 1" strap steel that I found in the garage. I think it is about 1/8" thick. I bent it into an L shape, drilled a hole in the short part of the L for the mounting bolt and attached it to the bottom of the tripod head with a hose clamp. I added a bend just below the hose clamp to allow the bracket to clear the tripod legs (or mounting post in this case) and to also achieve the proper angle for viewing the monitor.

I've been using this set-up for two years now and it has worked very well. I have also fabricated a plexiglas box to house the camera in since the PB Rain Slicker just didn't keep enough of the dust and dirt out. Dirt track racing and windy Southwest deserts can produce a very extreme environment at times.
