I just purchased what I thought was a Canon 814 XL Electronic, but when the package arrived it contained a Canon 814 Electronic. Should I raise a stink and try to get my money back or is everything "ok?" I spent $120.00

The 814 Electronic is a great camera and $120 is a good price. The main difference is the XL shutter for low-light shooting. If that's important, complain I guess, but otherwise you should be happy with it.

Hmmm... I'm not sure then. I bought it for an experimental project with Tri-X B&W (day for night/dusk for night). Do you think it will still be a problem?

Probably not a problem. The difference in exposure capability is not huge. The exposure meter will tell you if you have enough light. You can always push the film a stop. Shoot a roll and try it.

Hi, maybe it's too late, but I got both cameras and I can say that although I love the Xle, the AZe runs at 24fps (doesn't have small motion) a must for professional filming. If the Xle ran at 24fps I wouldn't need another camera.

Regards,


Morales
