Stacey and I have been talking about getting the canon xl2 but at between $3000.00 to $7000.00 for all the equipment, I couldn’t bring myself to do it, not yet anyways for one reason were unsure if we could do a documentary on the wolves there is a lot preparation there script, footage and gear that we need, so in stead of the big fancy video gear I sent in my canon lx-100 to be fixed it’s the predecessor to the XL2 it has interchangeable lens system, and we bought a canon hv10 HDV video camera, this thing is small but packs a beautiful video capture do to its high definition capabilities. Plus its 5500.00 dollars cheaper then the XL2, Going this root think is better right now as we can use it for footage plus for home video, I have read the video from this camera is the same as the 10,000 grad HDV video cameras so that’s good. We also were given from a friend of mine a Spion Orbitor Electronic Listening Device. For picking up sounds far away.
