XL1 problemgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread
I've recently acquired a Canon XL1 and on my first shoot, which began today, I noticed a thin, straight, horizontal yellow line halfway down the viewfinder. I continued shooting in the hope it wouldn't appear on the footage. On playback on a monitor tonight it appears the line is permanent, making what was shot today pretty useless. Any ideas as to what this is?

There may be some kind of fibre or lint between your lense and the body. Take the lense off your camera and check it out.
