XL2 or VX2000

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

Has anyone heard anything about what the new features are on the VX2000 and the XL2? I'm hoping for 4:2:2 and adjustable timecode. Can't do green screen compositing on 4:1:1. Rented the Sony D-30 with JVC Digital "S" back. worked like a charm but very heavy and everyone thinks your working for a network.......

I can't seem to find any information on an upcoming XL2. Where did you hear about it?

I have not heard any credible sources with information on a future XL2. If you're looking for more features than the XL1 then you might want to check out the Sony DSR300 or the upcoming DSR500. I think the DSR300 weighs in at about 12lbs, which is about what my XL1 is up to with the ma100 adapter, dual battery adapter, shotgun mic, and wireless receiver.

I have been talking to Canon about a short I am working on and asked about the "xl-2". They said that there is not one on the way. At least not for a year. GenesisDV Rusty

I have heard nothing about either the canon xl2 or vx2000 but Jvc has come out with a gr-dv500 which is comparable to the sony dsr300 because it has 3 1/2 inch chips and comes with a pro lens. It sells for 4900 and is supposedly the best mini dv camera out. I have pre purchases one so I'll post again when it comes in to tell you if it's worth the money.

I am trying to find a used cannon XL1 and a reasonably priced 35mm Wide Angle Lens hopefully used so I don't have to spend too much money. If anybody knows anyone who is selling these two items or if one of you are selling anyone of these items then please feel free to E-mail me with what you are asking for as far as price goes, an address, and proof of the product.
