Canon XL1 Camcorder

Emily, REVIEW STREAM
23 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The Canon XX1 is perhaps the best camcorder a consumer can purchase ourtright. When I was in film school we shot almost all of our films on an Xl1. the camcorder has a fabulous glass lens. The 3 CCD technology makes it so you shoot crystal clear video taht looks fabulous. I must say this is one of the best camcorders out there. A friend of mine purchased one and I still use his on occasion to shoot home videos, and most recently a live concert which turned out very well.

Canon XL1 Video Camera

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Canon XL-1 about 3 years ago. At the time it was the only 3 chip DV camera that had interchangeable lenses. Although there are a few prosumer cameras out today that allow you to do the same, they are rarely within the price range. There are (2) main reasons I favor the canon xl1 which is #1 the look of the camera is amazing. It looks like a real professional piece and everyone comments on it immediately.

  • Excerpt: "The canon XL1 is without a doubt an excellent camera, though this is no reason to make a hurried buy. In my experience this camera is very suitable for specific purposes, but not for others. There are plenty of reviews telling you the good points about this camera, to which there are many, and the specs speak for themselves. But here are some things you may not have considered about it's suitability for specific purposes: 1) It's weight. The XL1 ...

  • Excerpt: "This superb DV camcorder is truely amazing! It has interchangeable lenses which is a rarity for DV camcorders. It has excellent manual overrides and audio facilities and also..a huge bonus a DV in socket.. so you can transfer your edited film back onto the DV for a safe, good quality backup/master. i has a 16X optical zoom, and a shoulder mount. The manual zoom lags a bit due to the servo. The main problem is the price which is around £2500! It is ...

  • Conclusion: soy un fanatico de la xl1 y creo que tengo camara para rato
  • Pros: buena estetica,comoda confiable los comandos estas comodos y al tacto es una camara que apesar del tiempo sige siendo confiable y no tiene nada que envidiarle a la linea nuevas de camaras
  • Cons: para mi y seguro para la mayoria los dos problemas que tiene es la lumunosidad y el poder usar el mic de camara y un mic por cable o inalambrico a la vez tiene que ser o dos externos o el propio de la camara

El primer paso hacia lo profesional

GUSALBA2008, MercadoLibre
24 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Con esta cámara se pueden hacer grandes cosas. Tiene poco que envidiarle a los equipos profesionales que cuestan por lo menos 5 o 6 veces más. Aquellos usuarios que están acostumbrados a las cámaras hogareñas van a sentir el cambio al principio: usar la XL1 implica mucho más que simplemente apretar un botón y apuntar al objeto. Acá es el camarógrafo quien decide qué y cómo filmar, y no la cámara.
  • Cons: Suele criticarse la falta de una pantalla lateral, pero tampoco es muy grave. El viewfinder es bueno y en laburos profesionales se monitorea justamente con monitores...

grosses ding.

  • Summary: 4000,- DM für einen Camcoder, der am besten auf einem Stativ im Schatten funktioniert ist schon eine Menge Geld. Dafür sollte man Ihn entweder sicher auf die Schulter oder leicht auf ein Steadycam packen können. nicht mehr zeitgemäß. grosses ding.
