Product Features in Detail
Manual Iris Ring
In response to XL H1 users, the Canon HD Video Lens 6x Zoom XL 3.4-20.4mm L features a manual iris adjustment ring on the lens itself. Previously, the f-number could only be selected using an iris dial on the camera. The manual iris adjustment ring of the HD 6x zoom lens lets you adjust your f-stop with the same hand and in the same way you focus and zoom.
In combination with the XL H1, the lens lets you see a subject-distance read-out in your viewfinder. This function provides you with the same, useful subject distance information you get from reading the markings on the barrel of a front focusing lens.
MOD (Minimum Object Distance) Function
The lens includes a Minimum Object Distance (MOD) feature, which creates an Autofocus range suitable for normal shooting situations from one meter to infinity. This feature prevents the lens from focusing on dust particles that can occasionally appear on the surface of the lens. For macro applications, the AF range can be extended to a minimum focusing distance of 20mm.
Focus Preset Function
The focus preset function lets you manually focus on your subject, then store that information in memory. Once the focus is set, you can then capture shots in which you change your focus from infinity (or some other distance) to your subject -- using three different speed settings.
Zoom Preset Function
The zoom preset function lets you preset the focal length of your lens, then store that information in memory. This feature is useful when you want to preset a focal length for the end of a shot -- for example, when you want to zoom in on your subject.
One-push AF Function
The one-push AF function is used when you want to fix the focus on a particular subject using AF. For example, when you are tracking a specific person in a shot that includes many people moving in different directions.
(2) Built-in ND Filters
The built-in ND filter lets you select one of two neutral density levels (1/6, 1/32), giving you the flexibility to obtain optimal results under a wide variety of lighting conditions. An ND warning display even alerts you to bright conditions that can result in the deterioration of image quality.
