Beast Witches from LA

Hi, my name is Roman Dirge and I'm currently making several short films with my Xl1-s. I'm a writer on Nickelodeon's Invader Zim and I'm in development hell with my own series and a movie with Columbia tri-Star. I'm interested in absorbing all DV info into my sponge-like brain.

ibc was a bit slow

There were some interesting things to see like all the new HD cameras and a great show by adobe and lots of info about mac software. The canon xl1 S was there to be seen (done by optex) they gave it a full specs outfit with there own manual lens, focuspuller(if thats what you call it in english) matte box with an assortiment of filters. it looked just like a filmcamera!
people wise, it was however slow and that had everything to do with the disaster in new york.this was really a shame because there was also less business from the states. I was hoping to get my hands on some of your camera magazines (video) the ones i can not find here.
Lets hope that everybody makes it next time and that includes you to! it would have been nice to meet you. good luck to everybody and lets hope the dark clouds will vaporate and we can all live happy together.

James,

There is a waterproof housing around, but it's designed for scuba diving, with the XL1 in side it is almost impossible to use it out of the water as it relies on bouyancy to make the package handleable. I can't remember who makes it but i can tell you it was a major housing manufacturer

Hola Charlie.

Soy Markus, aleman pero vivo en Madrid. Trabajo con la XL-1s para la tele alemana. Tienes alguna idea donde se puede comprar este adaptador (MM-XL1) para evitar que el micrófono coga el ruido del zoom?

Un saludo,

Markus

Roman,

Great to see another comic book creator pursuing DV. My partner and I created an indy comic book, S.E.A.L.S. and have written two screenplays along with an animation pilot that we are about to begin storyboarding.

We may even try to mix a live action and animation trailer to gain some interest. Had some good reads but agents aren't the best at envisioning comic book concepts.

Good luck.

Hola Markus.

Supongo que te refieres al adaptador para microfonos con conexion tipo Canon. Es decir los de tres pins y balanceados. Realmente tenemos la suerte de que accesorios para la XL1 se pueden encontrar muy facilmente en cualquier tienda donde vendan videocamaras profesionales. Yo vivo en Barcelona y aqui se puede comprar en ARPÍ-SERRA. En Madrid supongo que incluso si preguntas en la FNAC lo puedes encontrar.

Si quieres un directorio de distribuidores en España, te aconsejo que visites www.cinevideo20.com encontraras toda la informacion que necesites.

Nos vemos.

P.D. tengo curiosidad por saber que tipo de trabajos haces con la XL1. Explicame algo mas..

Hola Charlie:

es que busco el adaptor que elimine el ruido del zoom que normalmente el microfono coge. Te das cuenta cuando no hay mucho sonido de ambiente. Estoy ahora intendando comprarlo en EEUU.

Yo trabajo aqui como freelance para dos cadenas de television en Alemania. Hasta dos semanas hize mis informes con la XM-1 pero ahora empiezo con la XL1s. Tengo un sistema ya elaborado para hacer un monton de grabaciones solo. (yo se que soy el enemigo de los camaras).

Asi hize ya un reportaje de 13 minutos sobre el tema de inmigracion.

Un saludo,

Markus

Good to see a mix of animation and DV. I'm currently looking for a manga artist to do some snowboarding sequences for a sports video I'm working on.

Howzit

Originally from Joeys, now living in Houston, TX, but should be back in SA around Dec '02 and ready to shoot some wildlife-related doccies. In the meantime I am looking forward to seeing the Boks come to town and kick some Eagles butt!

Looking at buying an XL1S or similar, however, my dilemma has been whether to buy an NTSC for the next year or a PAL and deal with the extra price and always having to convert while I'm still in the US.

Got a budget of $6000 but hoping to streeeeetch that out to include ENG package AND NLE system, maybe impossible. XL1S alone is coming in at about $3500.

For those of you in SA, what's the current price in Rands for an XL1S and a MAC G4 with FCP 2?

Can one shoot NTSC and edit/output PAL and/or visa versa on FCP?

Hi James,

I'm sure there are others but here's a few to start with:

STE-MAN INC., 800-845-6619 (USA), stemaninc@aol.com. I think they are local distributors for EWA MARINE.

R.T.S. INC. are also advertising the same EWA-MARINE housing and their details are: 800-519-0022, rtsinc@erols.com, wwwRTSphoto.com

ZGC Inc. in NY have the Spintec Rain Deflector.

B&H in NY sell:
EWA-MARINE - for the XL1 it is #VXL and is $849.95
GATES - Gates Diego Housing for XL1 is for more serious underwater work.
(August 2001 catalogue) Check out bhphotovideo.com

Hope that helps.

Health & Happiness

HI!
Hab eine XL1s inclusive aller Fehler, die da ding so hat! Frisst deine auch Tapes beim zurückspulen?
Hast du schonmal versucht, Mit der XL1 aufgenommene Tapes in einem NICHT SONY oder NICHT CANON player abzuspielen? (JVC, PANASONIC)

Bin echt ein wenig gepestet... Solche Kinderkrankheiten sollte ein Gerät mit dem Preis eigentlich nicht haben...

Aber vielleicht sollten wir da im XL1 Forum posten und nicht in der Neighbours Rubrik!
