Does the SDI output (I believe it's HD/SD-SDI) ...

Does the SDI output (I believe it's HD/SD-SDI) output 1080p or 1080i? The XA11 does 1080i out of the mini HDMI port. Looking for a Canon model that will output 1080p at 29.97 to fit with our other gear for livestream events with Blackmagic switcher.
Asked by: Jason
This item BH #CAXA15 will output interlaced only 1920 x 1080, not progressive. If you need progressive, you can add a converter.

Does the Canon XA 11 camera and the Canon XA 15 camera have neutral density (ND) filter? If yes, how can one manually set-up the ND filter (1/4, 1/32, and 1/64) on these cameras?
Asked by: Helen
Yes, the Canon XA11 and Canon XA15 cameras both have ND Filters. They can either be set to OFF or Automatic. To turn them to automatic, in M or Cinema mode, select [P Programmed AE], [Tv Shutter-Pri. AE], [AV Aperture-Pri AE] or [M Manual Exposure] recording program and set [FUNC.] -> [MENU] -> [Video Camera Icon] -> [ND Filter] to [A Automatic]. ND Filter settings will be available when the aperture value is [F4.0]. You can learn more about the ND Filter settings in the Canon XA11/XA15 manual on pages 48, 57, 118, and 119.

Has anyone tried mounting one of these to a DJI Ronin?
Asked by: Mike
We have balanced and tested all current Canon XA camcorders and have had no issue mounting them on the DJI Ronin RS2 and RSC2. We recommend removing the top handle for low mode.
