Question about Canon XL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

My canon XL2 is clicking every time I turn it on, sounds like it's near the part the 20X lens connects to the body of the camera.

It's probably the back flange focus unit calibrating mine does that too.

Last i heard of the same occurance on a 24-105, it turned out to be a problem with the main board on the lens. Sounds like it needs CSC. Better send it in. Is the lens still under warranty?

My canon mini dv camera model no> xl2 is in


If you can't find the manual on Canon's website it's probably not a good idea to go elsewhere. Your best bet is to send it in to Canon and have their techs repair it.

My pc doesn't reckognize the canon xl2 when connected by firewire


Well, I hate that when it happens so we changed test-bed computer to Mac. The software runs as soon as two hardware, pc and XL2 is connected physically. I do not have knowledge on prem pro 1.5. but from technician's point of view, if both machines I/O hardwares are ok rest of the reponsibility depending on the program. This is how I would do it. 1. Restart the computer 2. open only the related program and have it ready for connect. 3. turn on XL2 on VCR mode, test make sure it plays few second. 4. connect the firewire. Hope this works otherwise, I will re-install the program and try. Beyond that point, it's good to consult with a local technician for diagnostic of your XL2 first. -James

Can sigma lense fit to canon av-1 camera body

Answer to your question is, ‘Yes’ we can. Use Sigma FD lenses.

As we know Canon AV-1 has electronically controlled AE (Automatic Exposure) & has a Canon Breech-lock lens mount.

Original generation of FD lenses featured a silver locking ring at the base. Only that locking ring turns to lock the lens to the camera body; the lens body remains still.

In the newer lens system which was introduced with this camera, the user has to line up the red dot on the lens, with the red dot on the camera and simply turned the whole lens clockwise until it clicked into place.

Note: FD-mount cameras could use FL lenses in stop-down metering mode.

Thank you & have a nice day.

Warm regards,
William

Canon 350D battery drain


Sounds to me like the moisture then. Look for those little sachets of Silica Gel desiccant, you get them with a lot of electronic goods in the boxes these days.
Keep one near the lens and one near the camera, they will prevent moisture getting near your precious lenses. I always keep a lens attached to my camera when in the bag, if you unhook everything and just rely on the body and lens caps you may find it makes the problem worse.
Hope it all works out you, regards

Canon XL2 - "Check Lens" light comes on


Before shipping back, there is one routine to try:

1. Turn off. Remove battery pack and internal disk battery (right side, under coin-slot cap)
2. Move main power dial, clicking into each mode on the dial, 3 seconds each. (this discharges residual charge).
3. Twist off lens; make sure pins and contact points aren't blocked. If needed, wipe gently w/soft cloth.
4. Re-attach and reinstall batteries.
5. Cross fingers

If this doesn't fix it, the repair center will have to.

How to hook wireless mic to canon xl2


Plug it into Audio 1 ports, switch to audio, not mic on the physical camera, then check that you have selected stereo 12 bit, 1,2 from the record audio menu.
Also note you have to push the button next to the audio meter to monitor different sources.

The Lens Error usually means the lens has sand or another obstruction stopping it from retracting.
