New Canon XL2s Coming In

As I'm sure you are aware via the grapevine, there are only a handful of dealers who are authorized to sell the Canon XL2. ZGC is one of them. We're pleased to announce that the first shipment is arriving this week.

While Canon ramps up production, the demand exceeds supply at the moment (even before delivery!), so if you are keen on getting a camera for your upcoming production, please give us a call and place your order with a deposit. We will be sending them out to customers according to order placement.

We are taking orders for the Standard Canon XL2 Kits as well as the Canon XL2 Body-only Kits. We don't have an exact date for Body-only Kits yet, but anticipate October delivery.

Christine Brnic at ZGC is your point of contact and she loves hearing from you! 973-335-4460 or chris@zgc.com. See www.zgc.com for information about the XL2, accessories and what's included in each kit.

Haha, Barbara. By the subject I was like "What, an XL2s planned already?" :)

Thanks for the heads up though

I guess this one instance where an apostrophe would have been better to use even if it would have been incorrect! When the XL1S came out did you try searching the Internet for it? It was impossible to find, because Google saw it as the plural of XL1. . . .

UK(and Europe) HD CHANNEL NOW broadcasting!!

I dont know how i could have missed this but HD has been broadcasting in the UK and Europe for a while.

Its on the Astra 1D satelite 19.2o E (from memory, just google it)

Anyway its called Euro1080 (since it broadcats 1080i)

http://www.hd-1.tv/

It seems most people that are viewing it is via PC (with a DVB-S PCI card with CI and CAM cards) and using some programs such as progDVB and DVBviewer. Their PC is then connected to HD set or Projecter via DVI or other.

Of course a STB (set top box) is also available.

Anyone in the UK or Europe please put your hands up!

if any of you get the chance to beat the crowds to see the new Sony FX1 in the raw, could you please wave your hand in front of the lens when it is set to record to tape - I want to know how the mpeg encoding handles fast intraframe motion

thanks
