battery packs for the canon xl-1 : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

I've got an XL1 and the batteries that come with it suck. At best they last a short while, and soon they barely last at all. I've heard of powerful battery-belts and so on made for the canon specifically, but the only one i found was in the $250-$350 range which is pretty high for a battery- anyone know of any, and if so what's the company and price?

heres how I over came the batt problems. use anton bauer system. they are so good , and late long if your shooting a feature or doc and need lasting power. for any other info.

Hey, Memo, you can check out this web site they sell some sistems that work with the XL1, and also they sell a converter, that will work with standard Anton Bauer battery belts. Hope you get what you need.
