I am a newbie to the XL2. I've shot with the Panasonic DVX100.
24p Question: Is there a setting on the XL2, similar to the 24p advanced setting on the DVX100? Any reason not to use this?
Tape stock Question (I'm sure this is basic!): Any preferred brand of tape stock to use? Is there a reason why Panasonic brands would not work well with this camera? Or would a simple head cleaning tape do the trick if we were shooting with a cheap Sony mini-DV tape?
Thanks for your input. I'm excited to shoot canon.
