Canon XL1 recordings are dark--the room is dark, but there are stage lights..Yet the recording came out extremely dark--what are we rookies missing?

"stage lights" may still not be enough- there should be alow light indicator in the viewfinder (amoung the many things being displayed)- Also, the camera manual should tell you the minimum illumination that the camera will record in (usually listed as LUX or Footcandles, or sometimes in EV), but unfortunately you would want an old fashion light meter to check the light level of the stage ahead of time
