The Canon GL1 effectively overcomes this problem through its newly developed Video L (Luxury)-series lens. Employing Canon’s state-of- the-art lens technology, it comprises a fluorite element, which realizes virtually ideal correction of chromatic aberrations. The exclusive Canon lens realizes image quality that rivals professional equipment, making possible 20x optical zoom with sharp images free of color-blur.
The camcorder’s three 1/4″ CCD image sensors deliver high sensitivity and a high dynamic range. Each CCD separately processes each of the three primary colors red, green and blue. Light that passes through the lens is separated by a beam-splitting optical prism into its primary components and is sent to its own CCD. The process achieves outstanding detail and faithful color reproduction.
Advanced CCD technology called Pixel Shift realizes outstanding clarity, natural color, a wide dynamic range, reduced vertical smear and crisp still images. By horizontally shifting the green CCD by one-half pixel and then electronically shifting the green signal vertically by one pixel, Pixel Shift maximizes the system’s 270,000-pixel CCDs, achieving high resolution comparable to 410,000-pixel CCD systems.
