Details

The XF305, one of Canon's first file-based professional camcorders, combines an MPEG-2, 50Mbps, 4:2:2 codec with a Canon L-series lens, 3 Full HD CMOS sensors and studio connectivity for superb HD video stored on CF card.

Features:

  • MPEG-2 MXF recording to CF cards at up to 50Mbps (4:2:2)
  • Comprehensive NLE support
  • 18x wide angle Canon L-series lens
  • 3 x 1/3 type Full HD Canon CMOS sensors
  • HD-SDI, Timecode, Genlock
  • 10.1 cm LCD (1.23M dots); 1.3 cm (1.55M dots) EVF
  • Variable frame rates
  • Capture high quality HD to CF cards

The XF305 records MPEG-2 MXF (Media eXchange Format) files - up to 1920 x 1080 Full HD at 50Mbps (4:2:2) - to CompactFlash (CF) memory cards. CF media is inexpensive and widely available: dual card slots allow filming to continue without interruption.

Flexible editing

Integrating seamlessly with existing workflows, movies shot on the XF305 are captured as industry-standard MXF files compatible with all major editing packages.

18x wide-angle lens

Drawing on Canon's broadcast lens expertise - and informed by the feedback of professionals - the lightweight 18x L-series HD Video Lens delivers superb optical quality. Unique Ultra-Low Dispersion (Hi-UD) elements are used to prevent chromatic aberration. Separate rings offer independent control of Focus, Zoom and Iris (F1.6) - with full manual control available, end stops are provided for the focus and zoom rings.

3x Full HD CMOS

Full HD at 1920 x 1080 resolution is captured via three 1/3 type 2.07 Megapixel Full HD CMOS sensors - designed and manufactured by Canon in-house. High speed scanning minimises the effects of a rolling shutter.

10.1 cm LCD and 1.3 cm EVF

The 10.1 cm (4") LCD screen can be positioned either side of the camera. Offering superior resolution (1.2M dots), the Focus Assist tool helps achieve sharp images. A built-in Waveform Monitor (WFM) helps verify exposure and other shooting parameters. Alternatively, a 1.3 cm (0.52") Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) is available.

Variable frame rate

A wide range of frame rates is available, from 12 to 50 fps. This gives cameramen the freedom to alter the capture rate for additional creative flexibility.

Professional jackpack and independent audio

HD-SDI output is the industry standard, outputting uncompressed Full HD with embedded audio and Timecode. Genlock In and Timecode In/Out allow the XF305 to be used in a multi-camera shoot. Audio can be captured via twin XLR inputs and also with the front-mounted stereo microphone.

Custom pictures

Twenty-six Custom Picture options can be adjusted to achieve the perfect look. These can be stored in-camera - via SD card - and settings can even be transferred between camcorders.

CPS support

Canon's exclusive CPS Video Support offers a priority repair service, guaranteeing quick turnaround.
