Canon XHA1 Custom presets
by Count Pilaf on Mar 11, 2007 at 1:31:09 am
This lovely camera has 9 Custom presets. But I cannot for the life of me find out what the factory settings are - they just have numbers. I know some of them have various cine gamma curves. But which is which, and what do the existing numbers mean? Creating your own custom settings is of course an option, but the number of addressable parameters is quite large - I'd rather start with the pre-built Canon settings.
Thanks for any help or info about this.

The in camera default presets are 7-9 ( I think they're named Video.C, Cine.V & Cine.F). It shouldn't be that hard to tell the difference between those & 1-6 (with no tweaks). The info is also in the manual.

[Lou Bruno]"Some of the new cameras do not have a name for the last few presets in the menu. The earlier A1's did."
I wasn't aware of that Lou. I wonder if that means the newer cams have a updated firmware & if if it's available for download. There's several things that need to be addressed that I believe can be accomplished that way.
