Canon XL2 review

Digital Arts
10 July 2008
  • Excerpt: The XL1 holds special significance for the DV-based filmmaker, corporate video producer, enthusiast or documentary maker. It was as revolutionary as Adobe Photoshop or the Mac Classic for delivering creative power without enshackling you with its costs. It was also instrumental in the rise of other types of low-budget production – but we won’t go into that right now.
  • Pros: Excellent lens. Better balanced than the XL1/XL1s. Great widescreen capture. Huge range of accessories. High level of manual control. Progressive capture with film-style gamma curve.
  • Cons: Expensive. LCD screen poor. Viewfinder unbalanced. No markings on lens.
