20 Most Recent Canon Optura Xi Mini DV Digital Camcorder Questions & Answers


Dear Movie maker,
Well seeing you did have only drop-outs in sound, but did get a picture, now you have nothing.
This does look like you have moved quite a bit of the dirt within camera pic/sound heads, I did say moved (not removed) because these dry cleaning things we use today do only move dirt not get shut of it.
I think you should put that cleaner in camera again, and give it a really good run through, let me know how that goes okay?

Your Mac video program should have or be able to download the appropriate driver for your camcorder when you want to capture the video from it. I have been using Final Cut Pro with no problems with the Canon Optura XI.

No you can't turn off this feature

Nathan Petersen June 17th, 2005, 04:03 PM Is there away to turn the auto power off off. I dont think there is, just thought I'd ask, thanks. Don Palomaki June 17th, 2005, 08:47 PM Not on the original XL1. It will drop into STANDBY from PAUSE if there is a tape in the transport after around 5 minutes. If there is NOT a tape in the camcorder it will not not drop into STANDBY but will remain operating as a camera. Xander Christ June 17th, 2005, 09:25 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true. Don Palomaki June 18th, 2005, 07:33 AM True - in that when using the battery, the camcorder will shut down when the battery runs out of available charge. However, using the A/C adapter does not prevent the XL1 from going into standby if a tape is in the camcorder. Nathan Petersen June 18th, 2005, 04:52 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true.

No it still does it with the AC adapter, Im not even using the battery. It makes no sense to have the auto power off when shooting indoors while using the AC adapter, its just stupid. Don Palomaki June 19th, 2005, 05:59 AM Again, the key point is having a tape in the XL1. After about 5 minuts it goes into Standby mode (not the same as turning the power off with the dial). This is a carryover from pure consumer camcorders - to save battery and reduce damage to tape and head wear from a camcorder left in pause mode for a long time.

Pro users complained, so the XL1s had an option to disable this feature so that only the tape transport (VCR portion) is turned off after 5 minutes, the camera head continues to run. link to above thread

That is similar to the Sony model and that has a switch to change input to output hidden as on the Sony it is dedicated to video in, unless it is changed.
