The official marketing text of Canon XHA1 1.67 MP CCD Black as supplied by the manufacturer

The HDV1080i XH A1 is perfectly balanced for easy handheld shooting. Full control over image variables, with new ultra-fast Instant AF, makes the XH A1 an ideal digital filmmaker's tool.

Features

-1/3" 1.67MP 3CCD for HDV1080i.
-20x optical zoom lens with OIS.
-Instant AF and Focus Assist.
-DIGIC DV II for HD.
-Compact design.
-Focus, zoom and iris rings.
-Widescreen LCD and EVF.
-Complete image control.
-Cine gamma and custom presets.
-Hot-shoe and XLR audio.

A digital filmmaker’s tool, the HDV1080i XH A1 is perfectly balanced in the hand.

HDV1080i The 1/3" 1.67 Megapixel 3CCD XH A1 records HDV1080i onto MiniDV tape. The use of rectangular pixels delivers the superior quality of full widescreen resolution, as seen on a High Definition display. Selectable frame rates offer digital filmmakers 50i or 25F shooting.

Canon optics
Benefiting from a 32.5-650mm (35mm range) Canon L-series 20x optical zoom lens with Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer, the XH A1 inherits the highest optical standards. Fluorite lens elements, Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) glass and multi-coating virtually eliminate ghosting, flare and chromatic aberration.

Instant AF and Focus Assist
Ultra-fast auto focusing with Canon’s Instant AF system helps achieve the superb clarity and sharpness that defines HD images. The Focus Assist function aids manual focusing.

DIGIC DV II
The increased amount of data that must be stored when recording HDV means that more processing power is also needed. Canon’s next generation DIGIC DV II processor has been developed to meet the demands of HDV, providing low-noise images with exceptional colour reproduction. Split path processing handles movie and still image signals separately, according to their individual colour requirements.

Compact design
With an internal battery system allowing the camcorder to operate in extreme environments, the compact XH A1 has been developed for balanced handheld shooting. Ideal for use on location, its controls are positioned for comfortable operation during long shoots.

Focus, zoom and iris rings
The XH A1 features separate rings on the lens body, allowing full, three-fingered manual control over focus, zoom and iris.

2.8" LCD
A 2.8" widescreen LCD, discretely positioned on top of the XH A1’s body, can be rotated for optimum shooting comfort. Footage can also be monitored in 16:9 widescreen using the 0.57" EVF.

Complete image control A full range of image adjustments are available, including finely graded gain and matrix settings and colour correction.

Cine gamma
Cine gamma settings are provided for digital filmmakers. With an additional 25F shooting mode the XH A1 is able to reproduce the look and feel of film. Presets are available for storing custom settings.

Accessory shoe and XLR audio
An accessory shoe allows a range of peripherals to be attached to the camcorder, expanding shooting options. Two channel XLR audio inputs are also provided.

Image sensor
Total megapixels *
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).
1.67 MP
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
CCD
Optical sensor size *
Optical sensors are electronic detectors that convert light, or a change in light, into an electronic signal. They are used in many industrial and consumer applications e.g. lamps that turn on automatically in response to darkness. Optical sensors come in many sizes.
25.4 / 3 mm (1 / 3")
Effective megapixels (movie)
156000 MP
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
20x
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Yes
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
4.5 - 90 mm
Focal length (35mm film equivalent)
32.5 - 650 mm
Filter size
A filter is a screen, plate, or layer of a substance which absorbs light or other radiation or selectively absorbs some of its components e.g. a UV filter to reduce UV light. Filters come in various sizes.
7.2 cm
Storage
Camcorder tape type *
The type of tape used to record images from a camcorder, e.g. VHS, Video8.

Shutter
Camera shutter speed
Determines the length of time the shutter lets light pass through the lens to the CCD. Shutter speed and aperture together determine exposure.

7.11 cm (2.8")
Display
The description of display that can includes display type, resolution, size etc.
LCD
Display resolution
The number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It is usually quoted as width × height, with the units in pixels: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels. The higher the number of pixels, the sharper the image.
