007 & the XL1

I went to see the new James Bond movie and in one scene with a bunch of reporters, right there in front is a guy with a XL1. Hollywood likes that camera I think!

I "allegedly" saw Jackass and it was used in several of the shots.

That proves that an xl1 output to 35mm doesn't look so bad after all ;-)

It would be so neat to have an xl1 with some cool bond features. Like a rocket firing out of your lens :-P

I was surprised it was an XL-1 and not an XL-1S. Do you think he was front and center because of a focusing issue??? ;-)

Mine's stopped doing the dishes now and my wife is starting to bitch. Guess I'd better buy something new. Wonder if a DVX100 can cook?

I passed on the missle launcher option and went for the silver custom case instead. You know, the Z4 Roadster by BMW. Yours did come with a case didn't it?

The green seeking missile is standard, not an option. I would have opted for the m5 case with the 4 pzero no skid rubber feet :)

Or perhaps the Aston Martins er ah er I mean anton bauers

Sean Connery seemed to like the Anton Bauers much better too.

Yah, but since Aston Martin got bought by Ford I think he probably feels a little differently towards them. What is it he drove in this movie? I haven't seen much of the hype surrounding it.

Ooooh, Jeff. I'm afraid we'll have to have you eliminated for those irreverant words. What did he drive?! Just the sexiest car ever developed!

http://need4speed.topcities.com/asto...sh_picture.htm

Imagine plopping your XL1 in that at the end of an all-day shoot, then heading home with the top down, Halle fiddling with the radio by your side...aaaaahhhh...

(By the way, Halle drives a Ford in the movie...wait'll you see it)
