Canon U.S.A. has announced the Canon XL1S, the successor to its Canon XL1 DV camera, adding 27 new specifications, including improved picture quality and new manual functions.

The Canon XL1S, with its open architecture and modular design, allows users to customize their camcorder system by changing lenses, viewfinders and shoulder mounts. The Canon XL1S remains the only DV camcorder design that can be customized to the individual needs of the videographer and to specific shooting applications. Now, users are able to access the Canon XL1S picture set-up controls to customize the mood and tone of the video image prior to recording.


the company is also debuting two new lenses (16x electronic and 16x mechanical) and a shoulder mount microphone adapter that features four audio inputs. The new lenses and microphone adapter, along with all other existing accessories, can be used on the new Canon XL1S and the original Canon XL1.

The new Canon XL1S has enhanced picture set-up controls and uses a variety of interchangeable lenses -- from extra wide angle to telephoto to super-telescopic.
