For more than a decade, Canon has brought industry-leading lens optics and image processing expertise to the professional market with the XL Series camcorders. In that time, leading videographers have come to rely on the superior image quality and ultimate creative control available to them through the XL Series' features and open architecture system.
The latest in that line is the Canon XL H1A HD camcorder. It has many of the features that have made the XL Series a favorite of independent filmmakers, corporate and event shooters. To complement these features, the Canon XL H1A has added an even higher level of customization options and capabilities which will make it an even more useful creative partner for the demanding videographer. With the XL H1A this remarkable capability is available at a lower price than ever before, offering users who have come to rely on their XL1, XL1s or XL2 camcorders the opportunity to make the move up to HD video.
The XL H1A has a wider range of image control settings and options, combined with the new Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Zoom Lens III with Professional L Series Fluorite. To back up that superb lens are three 1/3" Native 16:9 CCDs with 1.67M Pixels (delivering a full 1440 x 1080) and Canon’s exclusive DIGIC DV II HD Image Processor. The XL H1A is the compelling choice for anyone seeking to produce the best in high definition video.
