Product Information

Canon XL H1S FHD Professional Camcorder Traditional Film

With a complete range of professional specifications, the Canon XL H1S offers versatile HD recording: for broadcast quality images, whether in the studio or in the field.

Professional HD quality

The XL H1S provides broadcast-quality 1080i High Definition. Choose 50i shooting for ultra-crisp realism; opt for 25F to give movies the look of traditional film.

3CCD shooting

The 1/3” 1.67 Megapixel 3CCD system delivers unparalleled image quality in the camcorders class.

HD Video Lens

The 20x L-series HD Video Lens features separate focus, zoom and iris rings, offering complete manual control. Each can be operated separately and simultaneously – the sensitivity of the focus ring can also be customised. A Fluorite lens element corrects chromatic aberrations; a Vari-angle Prism Optical Image Stabilizer (VAP OIS) helps to ensure steady footage. The XL interchangeable lens mount adds to the versatility of XL H1S, allowing a range of lenses to be used.

HDV and uncompressed HD

For fieldwork, choose to record High Definition Video to tape media (HDV). For studio-based productions, the XL H1S exports the highest quality 1920x1080 uncompressed HD with embedded audio, via HD-SDI.

Multi-camera shoots

The XL H1S has Gen lock input and Time code input/output connections: the industry standard for multi-camera shoots.

HD processing

The unique DIGIC DV II image processor is optimised for the increased data stream of HD. Advanced noise reduction technology delivers images with superb colour over a wide tonal range. Split path processing allows still image and video signals to be handled separately – ensuring that each appears at their best.

Full control over images

A complete range of image adjustment functions – including gain and matrix settings – give moviemakers total control. A special CINE mode matches the characteristics of film, for video that is suited to direct transfer. Custom settings can be stored to SD/MMC card and even shared with Canon XH series camcorders.
