What is the best way with the XL2 to remove the flicker of a TV? I assume there is a menu setting to change, I just haven't found it.

You'd need to change the shutter speed to match that of the TV in question or the refresh rate of the TV to match the shutter speed. It often will defeat the purpose of shooting in 24P on an XL2 as 24P changes the shutter speed from 1/60th to 1/48th to better emulate the motion blurring you get with a film camera. Try 1/60th or a second to fix up the TV, though that may or may not work depending on the telly.

Thanks Adrian I'll give it a try.

According to the manual, the XL2 has s clear scan function specifically meant for this application. You have to hold the shutter up button til "CS" appears in the viewfinder, then go to the menu, go to camera setup, select clear scan, and adjust the frequency 'til the scan lines disappear.

Clear scan is always a god-send, but I always recommend messing with the shutter speed first-- that's just my practice, and you can use them in conjunction (forgot to mention that before thanks for bringing it up John. )
