Question by Tony: Does anyone know where I can buy/rent the Canon XL2 for less than k?
I saw the quality in my film production class, and that was great! I didn’t realize independent filmmaking was THAT expensive! lol.
Canon XL2 3CCD MiniDV Camcorder w/20x Optical Zoom
list price: $ 6,000
price: $ 3,600 (still not cheap enough. my textbook, from 2006, said it was $ 2.5k)
I wanted to shoot a short film this summer. I have a camera, but it’s 8 years old.
Anyone know where I can buy or rent the Canon XL2 for less than $ 3.6k in the Santa Cruz, CA or San Jose, CA area, or something cheaper with same quality? I’ll e-mail my professor about this for his thoughts.
Also, under source, write “film student” “film professor”, “Canon XL2 owner”, or whatever you are.
I also posted this in the Camcorders section.

$ 3,399 from B & H, and they are a reputable company. And they have free shipping.
