Question about Canon GL1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a canon XLS, could not find it on the list so Im using this to get in. I am trying to get old VCR tapes from my VCR player into my XLs, so I can have them on mini DV. I have connected the cables to the out part of the VCR and the in part of the camera but nothing seems to be getting into the camera. I would also like to knwo how I can see how many hours the XLs has recorded but can seem to figure out how to do that either. Looking forward to help Joy
Since it is a Canon XL1S, I don't think that this feature is available (the recording tape to tape) until the XL2 Model. Just in case I am wrong, make sure that you are in VCR mode, and that in the menu options, somewhere there should be an option called Av to DV or something. As for the other part, you have to change what the display shows on the viewfinder. This is also in the menu under display settings, Timecode.
