Hi all. So my normal go to guy has not replied to emails (strangely) and so I am going to ask around here. I have a terrific Canon 1014 XL-S that I love (not as much as my long gone Nikon R10, but oh well) and it has performed wonderfully for the nearly two years I have owned her.
However, right now I am getting a strange problem when shooting. Sometimes it is as if the in camera fade in/out becomes engaged. I'll be shooting and POOF, it stops. When I check the roll, I see the results are an in camera fade out.
Like on this Straight8 entry that didn't go so well...
The scratches are a product of the shitty telecine. They ruined my roll.
Anyway, you can see the issue at 0:22, 0:35 and 2:46.
Every other aspect of the camera is fine. It's really mint. But I have a feature shoot coming up and if all goes well, I'll need this camera working 100% since we have some super8 stuff to shoot for a few scenes.
I will also be in the market for a backup camera, preferably a tip top Nikon R10.
