Canon XL1S MiniDV Digital Camcorder


Canon XL1S MiniDV Digital Camcorder

Small enough to carry around and costing not much more than a top-of-the-line consumer camcorder, the XL1S produces such high-quality results that it is sure to be the top choice for many independent filmmakers who demand full features and controls. Like its predecessor, the XL1, this camera uses three separate 270,000 pixel CCDs (one for each primary color) for the best picture quality. The XL1S records digital audio, with two channels of 16 bit/48 KHz sound or four channels of 12 bit/32 KHz sound. The body is based on a magnesium-alloy frame for maximum durability. It ships with a 16x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilization, but is also compatible with other XL camcorder lenses. With an optional adapter, you can use Canon EF (EOS) still-camera lenses–some of which also feature optical image stabilization.Amazon.com Product Description Small enough to carry around and costing not much more than a top-of-the-line consumer camcorder, the XL1S produces such high-quality resul

    Best DV Camcorder If You Are Serious, December 19, 2001
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Canon XL1S MiniDV Digital Camcorder (Electronics)

    The picture quality of the XL1s is outstanding and it is known to be the industry’s leading pro-sumer camcorder. It is also an extremely versatile camera, allowing you to change lenses, vary your audio options (such as connecting to professional audio sound systems), and film in both frame and wide-screen formats. The only drawbacks are that it is quite a leap in complexity and it doesn’t have a pop-out viewfinder, which means you’re stuck looking throught the eye-piece or have to buy an attachable view-finder.

    It isn’t for your average videographer who wants to just take video of family and vacations. It is actually being used to film documentaries and for professional services such as filming events such as weddings (which is what I use it for).

    Due to its size, weight, complexity, and cost (especially when you add the optional accessories such as filters, additional lenses and microphones, etc.), you had better be very serious about videography before you invest in the XL1s. If you are, you will be thrilled with this camera.

    High quality DV for those who know, June 5, 2002

    Just short of a top-of-the-line broadcast DV camera, the XL1S is an extremely high quality DV camcorder. It’s affordable and relatively easy to operate. Granted, my parents wouldn’t have the slightest clue on where to start, and for most people this is WAY too much camera for general applications. But for semi-pros and amateurs alike you cannot go wrong with this piece of equipment. All the features you could want or expect are included, and transferrance to analog or to a DV editor isn’t more than a button push away. I’m a freelance videographer, and I’m starting a production house and this is the base piece of equipment I use. Too much camera for weddings and picnics, but for any type of video project this is all you need.

    Owned my XL1 s for about a year now and nothing but great !, September 20, 2003

    My camera has been down to Key West for a short film shoot.
    Not a problem it produced the most vivid clearity one could imagine.Also shot footage for The Discovery channel with this camera last month with pro-qaulity.

    DVD burns complement this camera this camera looses not one bit of qaulity when editing.
    Esspecially if you have a good enhancement program youll love the results the Xl1s produces bump up the saturation and the colors jump out….

    I have shot with about every camera out there and the Xl1s beat em all hands down on weight and ease of use.Picture qaulity is by far the best .500+ hours on my Xl1s and it works better than new.
    You know, you have to read the manual to adjust for lighting conditions other than that I can produce a great film feel to my work with this DV camera.
    A must for the person looking to make his mark in the business.
    Dont settle for a gl2 or a panasonic, you’ll know what Im talking about once you shoot with this unbelieveable camera.

    One thing this camera is very stable,and with practice youll throw away your tripod…..
    You,Gotta practice camera technique people….
    If you have the cash this is your camera..
