Info: Someone has actually touched a Canon XL-H1 and lived to tell the tale

| | Comments (4) has an exclusive hands-on review of the new Canon XL-H1. I have one on order from B&H and can't wait to get my hands on it.


hi karen -- this is a question, not a comment. and it has nothing to do with the canon. i couldn't find an "email me" on your site, so i opted for this route.

do you know anyone who's dry-cleaned a camera bag and lived to tell the tale? i have a tenba (d-15) and it's dusty.

i apologise for how random this is -- but sometimes random is good, maybe. your blog is wise and well-written -- and part of my daily diet.

thanks very much, sanjit.

I've never heard of dry cleaning a bag, but I've washed my Domke's in the clothes washer (standard washing machine), it makes the cloth much softer - sort of like stone washing jeans.

I'd personally just give your bag a nice soak in woolite or other gentle laundry fluid designed for that purpose. Be sure to dry it well -- a window with lots of sunlight and breeze is best. Clothes dryers will reek havoc with it.

Hey! I just wanted to thank you for your site as well. I just found a Bolsey model B at a thrift store, and well "quirky" is definately the word for this pretty little thing. Now, if I can just keep it steady while pressing the shutter release, I'll be happy.


I sent this link to my girlfriend, a TV photojournalist, as well as the previous links you had about the XL-H1. The latter amounts to camera porn, and the new entry basically amounts to a "naughty story."

She's not even a gearhead.
