New accessories available for Canon XL H1

The new professional mattebox system’s housing supports both the 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios.

The Canon XL H1 HVC camcorder is getting a major new lens accessory. 16x9 and Alfred Chrosziel have introduced the HDV Mattebox Kit for 4x4/4x5.650 filters and the 4x4 Clamp-On Sunshade System for the camcorder.

The new professional mattebox system’s 16:9 housing covers both 16:9 and 4:3. Features include a filterstage for two filterholders (one 4x4 rotating and one 4x4/4x5.650 fixed), full-size French flag, 16:9 insert mask, and 110-72mm screw-in adapter ring. The mattebox comes with a center bracket and 1ightweight support rods to provide a secure mount.

Chrosziel’s DV Follow Focus system can be added to provide precise manual focus.

For compact, lightweight use, the Chrosziel 4x4 Clamp-on Sunshade System attaches directly to the front of the camera’s 20X lens. It includes a 16:9/4:3, housing, full-size French flag, filterstage for two filterholders (one rotating and one fixed), and a 104:72mm step-down ring. An optional center bracket and lightweight support system are also available.
