For the professional, the XH G1 combines a wealth of features with the outstanding performance of a 3 CCD, High Definition camcorder. It contains all of the features of the XH A1 plus Canon's Professional Jackpack. If you don't require the capabilities of the Jackpack, then the XH A1 may be a better fit for you.
The excellence of the XH G1 begins with their Genuine Canon 20x HD zoom lens with Professional L Series Fluorite.
Super-Range Optical Image Stabilization corrects for a wide range of camera movement and vibration, and Instant AF (Auto Focus) ensures ultra-quick, accurate focus.
The DIGIC DV II HD image processor then ensures improved color reproduction and noise reduction - for a final result that is the zenith of image quality.
If you need advanced image control, the XH G1 gives you features that let you make manual adjustments to fine-tune your video. If you prefer to concentrate on your subject and let your camcorder take care of exposure and image controls, the XH G1 lets you do that as well.
Plus, Canon's Professional Jackpack on the XH G1 gives HD-SDI Out, SD- SDI, SMPTE Time Code In/Out (selectable) and Genlock Input capabilities - a feature unmatched in this category of camera.
With a wide range of features and optional accessories, the XH G1 is a versatile, flexible and powerful performer that is sure to meet your uncompromising standards.
The Image Quality of High Definition
The XH G1 captures true 1080 High Definition resolution video at 60i, 30F or 24F frame rates (or, 50i/60i with optional upgrade). It captures a true 16:9 widescreen HD image that is made for your broadcast and theatrical projects.
Genuine Canon HD Zoom Lens
The XH G1 comes with a Genuine Canon 20x HD zoom lens that shows why the name Canon is synonymous with optical excellence. This Professional L Series Fluorite lens ensures outstanding resolution, contrast and color reproduction, and delivers clarity and image quality you won't see with conventional optical glass lenses.
3 CCD Performance
The XH G1 is equipped with three 1/3" Native 16:9 CCDs (1.67 Megapixels), delivering outstanding picture quality, highly accurate color reproduction, and a wide dynamic range with virtually no color noise.
Super-Range Optical Image Stabilizer
Canon's innovative Super-Range OIS combines gyro- and image-sensors to correct camcorder shake instantly - whether it's the fast vibration you'd experience while recording from a moving car; the medium-speed motion of hand-held recording; or the slower motion of body sway.
With HD, focus is more critical than ever. Instant AF is the next generation of auto focus, designed with HD resolution in mind. It combines an external AF sensor with Canon’s legendary auto focus system for fast and accurate focus. Together, the two sensors reduce focusing time - even in low-light situations - and improve focusing performance on difficult subjects.
DIGIC DV ll HD Image Processor
DIGIC DV II HD is the next generation of Canon's exclusive DIGIC DV signal processing technology. Designed specifically for HD, DIGIC DV II ensures optimal image quality for HD video, with improved color reproduction - especially in skin tones, and dark and light scenes. It also employs a hybrid noise reduction system that integrates two types of noise reduction, for high definition images that are crystal clear.
A variety of image control functions give you as much or as little exposure control as you want, and let you fine-tune your exposures for outstanding video.
