Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

    State-of-the-art DV imagery and controls; 24P mode; interchangeable lenses; native 16:9 capture; compatible with most XL1 lenses and accessories.

  • THE BAD

    Strange ergonomics; stock lens is hard to focus manually and stock viewfinder doesn't help; no flip-out LCD monitor; pricier than the competition.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    Canon returns to the state of the art in DV but doesn't set a new standard.

great cam I have two of them I would but a third if I had the money.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is my second one I really like it. I film a lot of car races with it. I have it mounted on a 12 foot jib crane and I sit in my lawn chair and push the remote buttons. My first one got hit by some mud from the track and had to send off to be fixed. It is nice to have a back up. I really like the picture quality it has real color but need to use good film. Sound is great and the function of the cam is easy to use. If I up grade I would go to a HD cam but I really like the style and the way it set on my shoulder. I wish it had a build in memory so you do not have to use tapes.

Canon XL2 I love it!!

I love this Camera! Canon has out done themselves!! Cannot wait for the next model!!! The canon is very user friendly and has the best picture quality ever. Besides the XL1 I have not seen any other Camera like the XL2 Nevermind the features!! It is a bit costly but in the end it is worth it!!

Great camera to move from the consumer to the pro.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

So far I love this camera. Very little is accessed through the menu. Almost every control has a button - I really love it.

The lens is great - I am getting depth of field that I was unable to get on my sony vx1000.

This is a great camera for the price.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Other than I thought the viewfinder was a black and white one, I am very satisfied with the purchase.
