1 The World's Fastest (f/1.0) Zoom Lens
t- -: ---tI) -
-+ ~ +--­
--l -
The Canon 31 OX L features the fastest lens of any 8mm
movie camera.
This lens has been designed for greater
compactness and smoother operation than any other lenses
of the same class. Its newly des igned lens construction of
13 elements in 11 groups obtains sharp picture images without
flare, and excellent color balance at full aperture .
2 Large Shutter Opening
The Canon 310XL boa sts the exceptionally large shutter
opening angle of 220 -another XL feature in this new and
sophisticated optical system.
The resultant exposure is
effectively 1/ 30 of a second. Thi s shutter opening arrangement is in all respects adequate for general filming and
for filming from video sources, especially unde r low-light
cond itions .
3 Slim, Compact Design
Despite the incredible abundance of high performance
features that the Canon 310XL contains, its size and design
remains slim and small. This compactness starts with the
lens barrel design of the f/ 1_0 3X zoom le ns having an outside
diameter of just 47mm. Further compactness is afforded by
locating its power source, two 1.5V penlight batteries, in the
upper part of the film magazine compartment .
4 CCA Filter Switch
The Canon 31 OX L incorporates a feature to automatically
cancel the CCA filter from the light path upon in sertion of
a daylight-type cartridge. A special p in within th e magazine
compartment detects the use of daylight film and activates
rel)1oval of the filter. Manual cancellation of the CCA filter
is also possible by simply sliding the knob located on the
side of the camera body _
5 Macrophotography Mechanism
The macro photography mechanism which is incorporated
into the 310XL enables one to shoot close-up photography
without attachment of any other accessories. This is especially
convenient for titling purposes, since it can focus at a point
21 .5cm from the film plane indicator by a simple adjustment
of the macro set lever. The wrist strap serves as a measure
of this distance for macrophotography when it is pulled
forward tautly _
6 3X Power Zoom
The Canon 310XL offers the options of either power
or manual zoom. Zooming is very effective for trimming the
composition and transitions from one point of view to
another . It enables the cinematographer to follow his subject
easily. The power zoom is operable only while the shutter
is being released. While power zooming produces a continuous effect, manual zooming permits zooming at different

.e------Battery Check Lamp
This feature is designed to be used with the Canon Filter
ND-4 when shooting with ASA 160 film. It is also very
effective for shooting strongly back-lighted subjects.
8 Bright Viewfinder
>:B:-----+-Macro Indication
erexposure Mark
Transport Indicator
Since the 310XL uses a total reflection spot mirror and
the exit pupil of the viewfinder is large, the image is always
very bright . Furthermore, the viewfinder information that
is needed for sure and precise movie making, such as battery
check lamp, macro-indication, underexposure warning mark
and film transport indicator, are contained in the viewfinder.
