  • Excerpt: anon has always taken a "wait and see" attitude when it comes to introducing its new video products. Then, once it has determined the direction the market is going in, they do their homework, and come up with something that is beyond anything the competition has.

  • 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. Auch die Timecode-Synchonisation gibt es bei der Konkurrenz in diesem Preisbereich nicht. Schon als hochauflösende Studiokamera dürfte dieses Modell eine rege Abnehmerschar finden.

  • Excerpt: Dépourvu de compatibilité HD, le XL2 DV de Canon avait laissé quelques spécialistes sur leur faim. La haute définition apparaît sur les caméscopes de la marque avec le XL H1 HDV. Ce modèle 16/9e offre la spécification HDV 1080i ; il utilise le standard de compression MPEG-2 pour permettre l’enregistrement d’une heure de vidéo HD sur une cassette DV. Le Canon XL H1 descend du XL1, vieux de presque 10 ans, dont il reprend le design unique.
