This cam is too old.

Amazon
14 November 2001
  • Summary: I'm not saying that you can't get the job done w/ that cam. But considering the cheaoer DVX100 does the job better, the XL1s isn't appealing anymore. Interchangeable lens? Each one [is expensive], so only a few "pros" can afford that.

The truth is...

Tony Smith, Amazon
14 November 2001
  • Summary: What's reviewer: "a customer" & "Tyrone Brumwell"...thinking! There is a Canon XL2 comming out next month in August. I contacted Canon USA and verified it. You can do the same at 1-800-OkCanon. SAVE your money for this new beauty ($4,000) it will be worth it! Read the specs at canon's website.

DukeHigh, Amazon
14 November 2001
  • Summary: This is the camera that they used to make the film 28 Days Later. It is a top of the line domestic semi-pro camcorder. The best camcorder however is now the PANASONIC AG-DVX100a which has moved up on this one because of its better quality and Cinema look, however this Canon has better lens options,...

Good Enough

Travis Newman, Amazon
14 November 2001
  • Summary: As of now, the XL1S is a little outdated by some other cameras that are on the market, but the end product has very desirable results. I have used cameras like the Panasonic DVX-100, and the XL1 will suit your needs at least 90% of the time that the DVX will.
