Question about Canon XM2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Getting around motor noise

I've been doing my homework and the Canon XM2 is probably, at the moment, the best deal on market. Good quality, easy to use and it is professional with excellent TV like quality. But with one major flaw which every review I have read has pointed out - Bad Sound. Well not so much it has bad sound but the motor noise which accompanies the camera is clearly heard, and if your making a professional self-produced film the last thing you need is a stupid thing like motor noise ruin it for you. The question is, how do I overcome this, how do I get rid of the motor noise? If there some affordable device which I can use?

What is the difference?

The Canon XM2 is a European PAL camera so if you're in the U.S. this is going to cause issues for you. The XL2 would be my choice based on previous experience, though.

I've had my camera for 8 months & it just stopped working about 2 months ago. I thought the battery had just died & tried recharging using different cables, outlets & computers. No matter...

May be from a short inside (loose screw), possibly a bad battery caused it, or maybe just failed. Try this site: They are just great for the Powershots that need reviving. That's all they deal with are these Canon Powershots and they are great all around. They have a service package on their site for your specific problem on the SD1300 and for $79, you get the repair, the service for the camera and shipping back included. Probably the best place out there for service on these models, they do very professional work on these cameras. Good luck with it.

Hi, Just need advice on which is a better Lumix to buy- LX3 or FZ 40. In terms of i mage quality, shooting at night mode, and quality of lens. Am no professional photographer but would love to get...

In my opinion, your best best is the Lumix LX3. It's all around a higher quality camera than the FZ40 and it has a lot of features that I think work well for amateur photographers. It will definitely do better at nighttime. Also in terms of carrying space, the LX3 is much smaller and easier to fit.

As a pro photographer, this is the type of point and shoot that I would purchase if I was in the market for one in that price range. If I was going to go up in cost a bit, I'd probably purchase the Canon G12.

I hope that helps!

I have xm2 canon, and I can't find the night vision mode on it.

I do not believe XM2 or GL2 does not have night vision mode. You may achieve little using video gain control. We all know Sony has the night vision modes which have been popular feature. James

Hi, if you are on a tight budget then the FOXCONN motherboards are a good deal, [$90.00 to $150.00 AUD] On a medium budget then MSI is your best available, around $200.00 AUD Top line motherboards I recommend the ASUS boards, around $300.00 AUD. [You may need to convert the currency] Try to avoid any no-name type boards , it is very dificult to obtain after market service. Regards mistyman
