There's a word beginning with the letter C that describes this for me. It's either Clever or Crazy!!! I can't make up my mind which yet...... suppose that depends on the success or failure of the attempt really.

Hope they don't want to go and claim a warranty on the cam if it fails miserably!!!

takes a mighty brave man to do that.
you have any ideas how we could come up with a setup that uses some kind of solid state card that would record data coming out of the composite connection?

you mean time code data or video images.?
If it is time code is better to use the LANC port

Brave? Hmmm. Crazy? More likely.

To be rich enough to throw away a camera that expensive, if it broke....

Certainly it is no longer under warranty. What if Sony has a recall to fix something?

Scary.

Like watching a lion eat a barely dead animal. Disgusting, but too interesting not to watch.

Maybe I missed something, I see that he opened the camera, removed the lens to expose the ccd block, then "held" a different lens in front of the block... and the camera registered an image. Did he actually manufacture a MOUNT that will hold the lenses?

I guess that's why I asked did it work. Can you run around and shoot with the new lens.

Richard, Matteo's 2nd post of today says "I think I'll put the Nikon mount in a few days (on saturday may be)."

So we'll just have to wait. Ain't nobody comin' at my XL2 with no screwdriver!

Insanity - that's the only word I have for this.

Now, if you were to put a mount on it that would allow the use of professional Canon or Fujinon Glass, I might be interested. But to simply use a 35mm lens infront, I don't think it makes that much difference

The lens the camera ships with is great in my opinionl. Certainly on par with Nikon 35mm glass
