Canon has announced two HDV camcorders that offer high-definition using a form factor similar to that of the popular XM2 (which is known as the GL2 in the US).
The XH-G1 and XH-A1 record 1080i HDV and come with a 20X optical zoom lens. They include 23 presets covering image quality and have 21 custom function modes including presets intended to set the cameras up for use in news gathering or a studio setting. There is also a 24fps mode to match the look of celluloid film – though this is unlikely to appear in the UK version as we use a 25fps recording system as standard - and still image functions including simultaneous still image shooting.
