There's no way I can even approach this until after DV Expo, sorry -- paying jobs must come first. Stay tuned,

hmmm...I have a strange question or is it a provocant therory ?. I own a XL-1 for about 3 weeks and bought it because it is one of the best prosumer DV camcorders on the market. I also bought it because of its "unique" frame picture mode. But what i have read so far is that the frame mode could also easily created by Premiere after the shot. I also heard that if you wish to transfer DV to 16mm or even 35mm it is better to shot it in interlaced mode and do everything after the shot. So here is my provocant theory or my strange question, whatever: Why does Canon makes propaganda for a so "unique" feature that could be easily done which a "common" program like adobe premiere and could be done with every camera ? I suppose everyone who wants to make quite professional movies (i don't think that this is a camera to shot a birthday twice a year) uses an editing program like premiere or something else. Do i think quite strange or even false with this theory ? Or is there something i havn't thought of before ?

I'm having the same problem - editing another project for a guy that is consuming all my time...

Sorry to temporarily retract the offer...

Per frame mode - many people still use XL-1 without doing much if any post on a computer, so frame mode is handy. And fast renders and good techniques are recent innovations.

But, when a true sub-$5000 3-chip true full resolution, 30 or 24P progressive scan cam comes along, frame mode will be dead as marketable feature.
