For licensing and frequency information:

http://www.jfmg.co.uk

Hope this helps.

There are about 4 frequencys which you do not need a licence for. But at the moment I can't place my hand on it. You will have to bare in mind though, that if you are using the mic on one of these frequencys there maybe other people using it as well. So you will get interferance.

Hope this helps,

Ed

Hello Andrew,

I've visited Toronto many times as I have relatives that live in St Catherines.

Do you ever go to the Burns Night ?

I've never done the Burns Night here, I haven't done anything 'Scottish' in a while, too many things on my mind :)

New Member from Scotland

Hi from the Scottish Borders [gods country]
I recently took early retirement from my job as a lighting engineer to renovate my house and as it is near completion I hope to spend more time using my new XL1s.
I have for many years been interested in wildlife photography using a 35mm camera so with my new equipment I should be able to see them move.
At the moment I am using a Canon XL1s, 1.6 Extender and a Manfrotto tripod and use Pinnacle Studio 8 to edit on my PC.
I would be delighted to hear from anyone in my area with wildlife photography interest

Welcome, to be sure, from a descendent of your country. You couldn't hope for a more photogenic place to use your cameras. All my folks came over from Leodhas in the Western Isles.

If it's wildlife you're after, and you have that long XL1 lens (1.6X extender recommended), I'd bet you've gone up a bit north to catch the wintering Barnacle, Greylag and Pink-footed Geese. I once raised flocks of these on my farm in Oregon and I've always wanted to visit the homeland with a camcorder to record footage of them and everything else in sight.

The XL1 is one of the best choices for shooting Nature subjects, especially on those long open stretches in your region. One of my older camcorders is a Canon L-1 and with the extender, its 30X pulls in those distant critters very well. My new Sony VX2100 with a 2.2X extender for 26.4X, comes close to it.

If you've tossed off your job and finished the house, you're in prime position to become a hardcore videomaking addict. That's personal experience from which I'm saying that. I worked 12 hours a day for a year to rebuild my own family house and now I'm going wild with the freedom to do as much videomaking and bicycle riding as I want-----sometimes both things together. Good luck in adjusting to this good life and tell us about your video adventures.

Well here I am

Hi I am from Edinburgh in Scotland and I joined back in December 04. I have found the advice on this site very useful.

I work with two XL2's and having worked with Macs for ever I edit in FCP 4.5 and use DVDSP 2 for dvd production, Motion for 2D animations and Cinema 4D for computer modelling and animation. I work mainly on producing educational related products, but would one day like to turn my hand to producing short films.

I am still learning my way around the XL2 but have been delighted with the quality it produces. I have also found on more than one occasion, that people tend to take you more seriously when you unpack your XL2 for it looks like it means business..

Hi Chris,

Nice to "see" you come out of the shadows. :) Welcome!

Best wishes on that movie; maybe you can share some favorite clips here when it's completed.

I understand there are some heavily haunted castles in or around Glasgow. Have you tried the Ghost Hunter thing yet?
