I've just joined after googling Canon XL1 and was wondering what kit, lenses, tapes and accessories people recommend for the Canon XL1.
I've just bought one on ebay for £450 (cheap out of auction due to possibly needing a head replacement), and it'll be going off for a full service shortly.
It comes with the standard lens, lens bag, standard mic, battery, charger, but also the MA-100 microphone adapter which is a bonus
I'm going to be doing a mixture of work, nightclub events, interviews, training videos for photography (my dad the pro) and the odd short film.
I intend to get a Hoya UV/Protector filter, but whether or not I'll go for the newer HD version is another matter.
As I mentioned in another post (linky) I will be using my Macbook Pro for editing instead of my more powerful Intel Skulltrail PC, and after doing some research I've decided to go for Final Cut 4 Express as it has most of the features of Pro, but just a lot cheaper.
Love to hear your feedback oh wise ones
