Canon XL H1S FHD Professional Camcorder Traditional Film

With a complete range of professional specifications, the Canon XL H1S offers versatile HD recording: for broadcast quality images, whether in the studio or in the field.

Professional HD quality

The XL H1S provides broadcast-quality 1080i High Definition. Choose 50i shooting for ultra-crisp realism; opt for 25F to give movies the look of traditional film.

3CCD shooting

The 1/3” 1.67 Megapixel 3CCD system delivers unparalleled image quality in the camcorders class.

HD Video Lens

The 20x L-series HD Video Lens features separate focus, zoom and iris rings, offering complete manual control. Each can be operated separately and simultaneously – the sensitivity of the focus ring can also be customised. A Fluorite lens element corrects chromatic aberrations; a Vari-angle Prism Optical Image Stabilizer (VAP OIS) helps to ensure steady footage. The XL interchangeable lens mount adds to the versatility of XL H1S, allowing a range of lenses to be used.

HDV and uncompressed HD

For fieldwork, choose to record High Definition Video to tape media (HDV). For studio-based productions, the XL H1S exports the highest quality 1920x1080 uncompressed HD with embedded audio, via HD-SDI.

Multi-camera shoots

The XL H1S has Gen lock input and Time code input/output connections: the industry standard for multi-camera shoots.

HD processing

The unique DIGIC DV II image processor is optimised for the increased data stream of HD. Advanced noise reduction technology delivers images with superb colour over a wide tonal range. Split path processing allows still image and video signals to be handled separately – ensuring that each appears at their best.

Full control over images

A complete range of image adjustment functions – including gain and matrix settings – give moviemakers total control. A special CINE mode matches the characteristics of film, for video that is suited to direct transfer. Custom settings can be stored to SD/MMC card and even shared with Canon XH series camcorders.

  • You are 18 years or older
  • You are a UK resident, and have been for more than 3 years

What details should I have to hand?

You don't need much - if you already have a PayPal account then usually you'll just have a few questions to answer, if you don't have a PayPal account you just need to register with them.

What if I am declined for finance?

When you're applying for finance you always need to remember that there is a possibility you will be declined. This can often be caused by one of a number of reasons, but usually it will be caused by a negative credit score or a default on an existing loan. We've done our best to make it as easy as possible for our customers that aren't successful in applying to continue their order and pay by Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal Wallet or Bank Transfer - it really is as simple as clicking "complete my order using a different method".
