Hey there....please accept my apology if this is inappropriate for this board.... just wondering if anyone could lead me in the BEST direction... I'm interested in buying an LCD monitor to mount to my XL1s, where should I look? I've been cruizing google for an hour and I can't find anything that can run off of my camera's existing power. Does such an accesory exist? I've been making short films for 2 weeks on this XL1, and my footage is coming out crooked (i've never had to use a viewfinder before. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Isn't there one built in? Or is it broken?

How are you shooting if you don't use the viewfinder?

Sorry, I am confused.

OOP! No flipout LCD on the XL1s. My apologies.

My GL1 has one, so I assumed...

Oh my God, Shane made a mistake?

That *was* a funny missing feature on the XL1, wasn't it?

I have a Nebtek 5" Monitor with a Canon battery mount


I have a manfrotto mount to attach it to the shoe mount on the XL1s. works great, the smallest battery for the XL powers the LCD for longer then a CH910 with 2 of the biggest ones on it

I use it when I tripod or steadycam (and sometimes when I shoulder mount it as well just turn down the viewfinder)

and when I jib my PDx10 I use the Nebtek as a LCD for it

great tool
VERY glad I got it

what might help is to turn on the 16x9 guides (even if you aren't shooting 16x9)

hope this helps

havn't used the XL2 much but I still would use my LCD
I really like the size (I find the PDx10 LCD the smallest I like) and movablity of it (have had it over 50' away using Svideo feed and LanC control)
