    I dont have the converter but I do have a brand new 3x Canon Wide angle lens for XL1s series. Boing in Sg Wang has one and selling it for 4k. You can have mine for 3K.

    Its brand new and never been used.

    Hi, just my opinion, better dont use the wide angle converter, i have used it before with my XL1s, image quality drop, also you can see the vignette at all 4 corners and you have to zoom in a bit, no point using it, get the 3x canon wide angle lense, much more better. Anyway I sold both 2 units of my canon XL1s and go to panasonic DVX102

    This is a personal preference issue. Probably Canon vc Nikon thingy yet again.

    When we were shooting primarily SD, our weapon of choice was the XL1 series. Of coz we bought and sold off several units of the JVC DV500, Pana DVX 102 and various Sony miniDV and DVCAM cameras.

    Summary :-

    Canon XL series | Highly saturated vibrant colors straight from camera.
    DVX series | We dont like the ergonomics but it does give the most natural colors.
    Sony | Pale colors compared to XL1. Also compatibility issues with capturing.
    JVC | Gives the best low light quality. But we just do not like the "traditional" look.

    We finally settle down with XL1s. At one stage we had 5 units of it doing MCP etc. But again this was our preference. Other might disagree.

    Sorry to TS for slight OT.

    Hi Kamarul, I'm not comparing the 2 brands. I sell the canon not because its not good, I like the footage, agree with you it gives the vibrant colour and the footage looks more lively (L lense maa), have to sell it because seldom use it, most of the time using panasonic. By that time I own 2 XL1s and 1 DXV.

    No worries mate. Have good time with the wide angle. Im sure you'll experience a much improved production with it. Its invaluable for indoor shots. Once you use it, it'll be your favorite lens.. that for sure!

    Hope the "body+lens" will generate more income for you too. good luck.
