I have been trying to pull off two camera shoots with an xl-2 as camera 1 and gl-2 as camera 2. Normally when indoors we white balance on the same thing and the gl comes out looking great and the xl looks horribly grainy. The shutter speed and the app are the same but it's like we are shooting with one 3 chip camera that has broadcast quality and borrowed someone's 1 chip home video camera. How can we make them match up? I am so confused especially since we spent more on the xl than the gl.
Try pulling out the XL2's memory battery and allowing the camera to go back to its default settings, because it sounds like there's something to do with the XL2 that's not right. I match my XL2 and GL2 all the time without any problem. If anything, the XL2 should show less picture noise and have a cleaner image than the GL2 because of its bigger chips. The XL2 also works better in low light than the GL2.
