The XL H1 represents a giant leap forward for camcorder technology, offering both standard and high definition production, as well as a range of features a professional expects to find on a camcorder.

These include HD-Serial Digital Interface output, Gen lock input, time code input/output and full cine and image control. This makes the XL H1 ideal for a wide range of shooting situations, such as an ENG assignment, documentary shoot or a multi-camera studio set-up. And the XL H1's open architecture design offers great flexibility and customisation.

The XL H1 is an HDV camcorder which shoots HD at 1080i with a 50i frame rate. However, there's also the option of selecting a 25 frame (25F) shooting mode. The XL H1 can be customised via a service upgrade for both NTSC and PAL shooting modes, offering a wide range of selectable frame rates including, 60i, 50i, 30F, 25F and 24F. Three 1/3-inch 1.67 megapixel CCDs, a 20x HD lens and a wide range of shutter speeds enable the XL H1 to deliver professional-quality results.
