someones offered me a Canon-XL 1 for £250, now i know it could be dodge and i would need to check it out first but is it a good investment i.e. good quality film, does it use firewire (as not stated) and would i be able to shoot high speed to capture say a bullet shattering a glass (so it looks slow motion)
any info welcome
below is the details he emailed me
Canon XL-1 MiniDV 3CCD Camcorder with Multiple Lenses. In top condition. Along with the XL-1 body and original 16X zoom lens, package also includes a 3X wide angle lens , as well as a Fisheye bayonet mount lens. Additionally, the package contains an XLR shoulder mount mic adapter, as well as three batteries, the charging unit, the remote control, its original mic, shoulder support, camera strap, a few filters, and the original manual. Unit has been tested, cleaned, and it works great.
