  • Summary: A unique HDV camcorder that’s just as comfortable in the field as it is cabled to a multi-cam studio setup. Professionals will find a lot to like in the XL-H1, while enthusiasts and semi-pro events videographers would be better off looking at a less expensive model.
  • Pros: Outstanding video quality, interchangeable lenses, HD/SD SDI output, timecode sync and Genlock, dedicated switchgear, superb lens, progressive scan SD.
  • Cons: Expensive, unbalanced front-heavy design, 2.4in LCD can make focus tricky, only one HD lens currently available.

Die Canon XL H1 im Test

26 August 2008
  • Conclusion: In bestimmten Anwendungsgebieten (besonders im Studio) kann die XL 1H bisher eine Alleinstellung einnehmen. Nirgendwo sonst bekommt man unter 10.000 Euro ein echtes HD-Signal unkomprimiert aus einer Kamera geliefert.

9 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Die Canon XL H1 besitzt exzellente CCDs, die das Auflösungspotenzial von HDV in vielen Bereichen bereits ausnutzen. In Kombination mit sehr gutem Dynamikverhalten und stimmigen Farben sorgt das für einen subjektiv sehr guten Bildeindruck.
  • Pros: exzellente Auflösung in Helligkeit und Farbe, Wechseloptikanschluss, 4 Tonkanäle bei HDV, sehr gut ausgestattet
  • Cons: unergonomisch auf der Schulter, Standard-Optik dem Preis nicht angemessen
