I used to have a love/hate relationship with the CXL1 because it delivered great images when it worked. I blamed the mangled tapes on the abuse that the CXL1 had endured until this weekend. Now it is a HATE/HATE relationship. We had two cameras. One performed quite well. The other, OUR MAIN CAMERA, produced some less than acceptable footage. The tapes may be rescued as Ted and I noticed that the footage exhibited different 'smudges' when we watched them multiple times. He is going to try loading the tapes from a different camera...NOT A CANON POSXL1. Any way, the gang did great without me and I will post the Lana photos below. We may be filming next Saturday if Ted can not rescue the footage.
