I got the cannon xl2 about a week ago and been doing test shooting..
I seem to get alot of noise in my movie i dont see it in the view finder but when i convert it to a avi and play it back theres alot of noise..
The camera power dail is on A, 60i shutter 8
Any help would be great..
Don is right, The XL-2 shows grain a lot more than other models of the camera. Shoot in Manual mode, turn the dial to "M" and like Don said, keep your gain at '0' or below (if it's bright enough outside)
