The lightweight Canon 3x Super Wide-Angle Zoom Lens gives the XL-1 the widest field-of-view of any DV camcorder 70° compared to the 47° of the standard 16x lens. This represents an increase in angle of view of nearly 50%. Focal length of 3.4-10.2mm (24-72mm equivalent in 35mm) enables you to move from vast landscapes to close-ups with maximum flexibility.
- The lens incorporates eighteen of the highest quality, precision crafted optical elements, including low dispersion glass used to compensate for chromatic aberration, to deliver extraordinarily sharp images as compared to wide angle lens converters.
- Six-blade Iris for minimal light flare.
- Manual zoom and focus ring on lens.
- 72mm lens diameter permits the use of screw-on type filters.
- Minimum focusing distance of 3/4" at wide end.
- Built-in 1.5x neutral density filter.
