    Default need canon xl2 advice

    hi


    new guy here

    was thinking of getting a canon xl2 and wondering if the accessories that came with the camera where all i needed.

    the camera comes with the following:
    - XL2 Camcorder Body
    - Zoom Lens 20x zoom XL 5.4-108mm L IS
    - Color Viewfinder
    - Lithium Battery (for Auto-Date)
    - WL-D4000 Wireless Controller
    - Two R03/AAA Batteries (for Wireless Controller)
    - Lens Cap
    - Lens Dust Cap
    - Lens Hood
    - Lens Soft Case
    - Camcorder Dust Cap
    - CA-920 Compact Power Adapter and Adapter Holder
    - AC Cable
    - DC-920 DC Coupler
    - BP-930 Battery Pack (with Terminal Cover)
    - SS-1000 Shoulder Strap
    - STV-150 Stereo Video Cable
    - S-150 S-Video Cable
    - Microphone
    - XL2 and Lens Instruction manuals

    the type of filming i do is indoors with medium lighting(porn).


    would i need anyother type of lens, that does not come with the camera?

    I'd say spend the money on lighting (and a good lighting book) rather than actual cam accessories. You'll really make yourself stand out from the crowd with some top notch lighting.

    For a few "money" shots, think about getting some kind of stabilisation, as most of the shots won't be static. You'll definately need an extra battery - consider that a bog standard necessity .

    i like to do alot of filming with the camera on my shoulder instead of the tripode. does the xl2 have a good "steady shot" type of function.

    Its on "on the shoulder" job, so it's failry stable as is.
