Start Drooling. Canon Releases the XL2

I've been a Sony man myself (VX-1000, PD-150), but plenty of festivals have been entered, reels filled out, and development deals struck with the Canon XL-1. Well, that's all so much Fassbinder the bridge (it's ok, I'll wait...with me?) now. Canon's released the Canon XL2, which, according to Gizmodo's way-too-technical-for-me description, can sync settings between multiple cameras and "...there's just so much to this camera, though, it's sort of hard to explain." It's coming in around $5K. Time to dole out producer credit to "Amex" and "Visa."

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
