No straps on the XL2 I use... http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z173/Ryan3078/xl2.jpg Should have used one though, it was a pity when we went on a trip to Erie, PA. It was firmly attached to the tripod, and someone carried it by the tripod - it fell off, but still works! Yeah Canon for sturdy equip...

My own cheapo camera has a nice black strap with Panasonic written out in white letters with the font Arial Bold. :D The cameras that I prefer to use (namely the school's Canons and Sonys) do not have straps, thus adding to the excitement if you lose your grip for a second. I believe that we should ...

RE: Starting out --- need a new desktop

Looks good! It's a bit above what I use, and I am able to do the basics on mine (editing, effects, 3D animation). Looks like you're set to go!

I meant DV is $5 an hour by the price you stated. So I'd say it was perfect for a filmmaker on a budget! What I was trying to say is that this time last year I was filming with Hi8. So I could pay $3 for 2 hours of film, and now I have miniDV, and its $5 for one hour. So before I was paying $1.50 f...

In film stock terms, $5 an hour is fantastic
Yes...good thing I don't use film, then! Again, I am a filmmaker on a budget, not some director with a hundred grand to use on film.

I believe you can still do it by phone...when I have to validate programs, I'll connect the DSL just for that, then take it out again.
