Canon XH-G1s 3CCD HDV Camcorder

Description: Buy Best Compact Camera- Canon XH-G1s is an updated version of the awardwinning XHG1 HDV camcorder. The solid feeling is instantly apparent when operating the XH-G1s; despite its modest frame, the camera performs like a pro. Improvements over the previous model include higher quality zoom, focus and iris rings. Utilizing the highly efficient HDV compression format allows over an hour of high definition recording on a single miniDV tape! Featuring a 20x fluorite fixed lens, its superior optics gives professional level shooters ultimate image fidelity unmatched by the competition. Also included is the Instant AF auto-focus system, incorporating technology that helps reduce auto focus reaction time while increasing overall accuracy. The G1s comes equipped with the same professional connections that make the XL-H1 so unique. Fitted with the "jackpack", the camera can output uncompressed video through its integrated HD-SDI connection, making it ideal for field broadcasting. This is combined with both a genlock and timecode out, making the G1 a perfect camera not only for the field, but the studio as well. Concert and event videography is a breeze!
