Auto power off


Link to user manual

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

Removing the display completely from the screen


look for a Display button, or through the menus.
I believe the MF means Maual Focus.

Hello - Canon ZR80 - auto shut off


If you're trying to use the camera as a webcam, just remove the tape. The auto power-off is a safety for keeping the tape from getting damaged.

It says auto protect on and eject cassette ?


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Digital Resolution for 4x6


You will need all the pixels the camera can produce so set the camera for 1600 x 1200 Fine. That should produce a good 4 x 6 print. I can't help with auto/manual as I do not know what they do on that camera.
