Fusion DVDXL2 reviews

DVD: The Ultimate Guide to the Canon XL2 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Necessarily the Ultimate I actually bought this DVD because I was researching what camera I should buy. The DVD is your standard how to operate and what these buttons do and check out this feature and mostly panders to the lowest common denominator. The production quality is comparible to other camera guide DVDs I've seen (which isn't saying much). Honestly, I wouldn't say it is worth the price. If you are too lazy to read an instruction manual and too lazy to surf the internet, the DVD might be worth it. If not save your money. The use of the word ULTIMATE in this case is hyperbole and, honestly, it is misleading.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Examples and cause and effect is lacking Lots of menu details but not enough details on accessories. Very little cause and effect on the final video product as a result of the menu choices made. The menu items were covered in detail, which was very well presented...but once again, on both video and audio, very little effect was presented. I would have like to see more of the actual operation of the XL-2 as an audio/visual instrument in addition to just a technical description of the unit. I would recommend this video as an aid to the XL-2, but it needs a Part II video on operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ultimate Guide to the Canon XL2 This is an excellent product! When they say The Ultimate they aren't kidding! The DVD was very informative and gave information not covered in the owners manual. Different aspects of the camcorder and its use were covered in a logical order. The video was presented with examples of what the different functions did. The narrative was not like a lecture -- more like someone talking about the features on his camcorder. I have watched the video a couple of times and have nothing negative to say about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Informative and Helpful - a bit pricey Overall, this DVD is a great introduction to the operation of Canon's XL2 camcorder. First half of the DVD was the best part with explanations done by a very experianced professional cameraman whose presentation was calm, very clear, and precise. The description and imaging of the XL2 functions was great. Second half of the DVD had a different presenter who was harder to understand and not as good as the first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I need more The product is great. It has a lot of info and is very well organized. I have watched it once and picked up some points. I need to watch it about 20 more times to get all the info out of it. I do wish how ever that it explained more about the technical terms it uses. For a novice like me it is somewhat necessary. Over all a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feature Review This dvd is a great walk through of the features of the Canon XL2. They explain every button and switch on the camera. This is recommended as an entry level overview as they do not go too far in depth with the operation of the camera. It is a must have for beginners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Instructional DVD I've seen This DVD covers the camera end to end and then explains a lot of other stuff besides. I had to watch several times and still go back to it for tips.
