Pros: 20X F1.6 flourite video lens, excellent video quality, a shoulder mount
Cons: A little heavy
Verdict: Once you're over the disappointment that it's not the high-definition model many were predicting, you'll find Canon's XL2 a worthy successor to the successful XL1 and XL1s MiniDV camcorders.

Canon XL2 3-CCD High Definition MiniDV Camcorder w/20x Optical Zoom.

Canon XL2 review

 
4.0
Pros: Excellent lens. Better balanced than the XL1/XL1s. Great widescreen capture. Huge range of accessories. High level of manual control. Progressive capture with film-style gamma curve
Cons: Expensive. LCD screen poor. Viewfinder unbalanced. No markings on lens
Verdict: The XL1 holds special significance for the DV-based filmmaker, corporate video producer, enthusiast or documentary maker. It was as revolutionary as Adobe Photoshop or the Mac Classic for delivering creative power without enshackling you with its costs.

Canon XL2 Mini DV Camcorder Review

Pros: Native 16:9, Amazingly flexible imaging, Fine audio inputs, controls
Cons: Relatively large, heavy, Most expensive cam in class
Verdict: While the Canon camcorder XL1 was initially designed to be a high-end consumer product, professionals soon found that the camera had the quality to do serious work, even on the big screen. The new XL2 starts with the professional in mind.

Canon XL

 
3.8
Pros: Very high resolution; extensive image controls; interchangeable lenses; compatible with the Canon XL system of lenses and accessories; compatible jack pack is ideal for multicam studio work
Cons: No true progressive shooting; strange ergonomics; stock lens hard to focus manually; pricier than the competition
Verdict: Many were disappointed when Canon released its flagship XL2 DV camcorder without any high-definition (HD) capabilities. About a year later, Canon at last entered the HD fray with its XL H1 HDV camcorder.

Good camera, but not the best.

 
5.0
Pros: Interchangeable lens system, sturdy camera, 4 audio channels, decent factory lens, native 16:9 ccd's (can bump footage STRAIGHT to film), 24p, ergonomics
Cons: A bit heavy for holding them camera by the handle (just use is shoulder mounted most of the time), interchangeable lens system, expensive, stock lens (20x) is kind of poor for wide angle usage
Verdict: I'm a film student and have access to this camera as well as many others. I've used this camera on multiple shoots. Its a good camera, and the interchangeable lenses is a big draw. But the problem lies in the fact that many of the lenses are pretty expensive.

Canon XL2 3CCD MiniDV

 
5.0
Verdict: I have used this for a year at my college. I do not know why some people dislike it. I love it! and on my opinion, It is the closest to HD your gonna get while not getting HD. You guys gotta realize that this camera has shot some big movies like Cold Mountian.

Captures images perfectly

 
4.0
Verdict: Doing shoots on field is now much easier with this XL2 digital camcorder. There is better image control coordination between two XL2 cameras, remote computer camera control and direct video recording to computer. It truly performs the way a high-end digicam should.

Pros: It is simply amazing. This camcorder had great video quality, great accessories, and gives very clear pictures and sharp images. The camcorder shoots great under any condition.
Cons: Its pretty expensive. But it is worth every dime you pay for it
Verdict: This camcorder is a pleasure to use. You'll be proud to claim that you have used this camcorder and that you have comeout with such great videos. It is expensive but it is worth it. I would suggest that anyone who is in two minds about this camcorder just needs to use it once to know how good it is.
