Andromeda for Canon XL cam's?

Is there someone, or people from the Andromeda project who thought about making a version for the Canon XL camera's, XL1s and XL2, and maybe even XL1?

Because the project seems nice, I reviewed some clips from their site, but it's only limited to DVX-cameras...

Thanks,

Very unlikely... it is an interesting project but impractical for most. I can see some applications that would be a perfect fit but most of those apps are going to be generating decent revenue and you should be using a better camera anyway...

Yes, actually I don't think I would buy one either - because of workflow and maybe budget reasons, but just interested :-)
Maybe if they WOULD make it, and the footage blows me away, I would consider it once...

This is the website. It's a kind of modification that sucks the uncompressed data stream from your DVX (but you have to connect it to a Mac to capture it) of about 2000-2500 dollars, which gives you more lattitude, and HD-resolution. You should look at the website and watch some clips.

Best regards,

The website states (in the FAQ) that the XL2 might be their next 'version'. Would be pretty cool indeed!

I am not sure how old that FAQ is but with the 960X480 CCDS of the XL2 they should be able to pull HD footage off that would surpass the HVX.
