Canon XH A1 and XH G1 High Definition camcorders with Enhanced Image Quality

Building on the success of the XH A1 and XH G1 High Definition (HD) camcorders, Canon has introduced the newly refined and upgraded hand-held XH A1S and XH G1S HD camcorders. Both Canon camcorders incorporate enhanced features for improved operation, including greater image control and improved audio capabilities. Whether it is for corporate video production, wedding and events, or filmmaking, the new Canon XH A1S and XH G1S HD camcorders help professional videographers realize their creative vision. Using the custom display settings feature, a camera operator can tailor the display to match their shooting style. These include 22 items and 40 sub-items for selection of status information that can be shown in the camcorders’ 2.8″ widescreen LCD or color EVF.

The Canon XH A1S and XH G1S HD camcorders incorporate an expanded array of controls for customizing the image, display and operation to match individual needs. Utilizing the industry’s most affordable digital video recording media – HDV tapes – both models are ideal for long-format applications such as wedding and event videography, digital filmmaking, documentary production, government and media education. The new Canon XH A1S and XH G1S HD camcorders are scheduled to be available in late December for an estimated retail price of $3,999 and $6,999, respectively.
