Advanced Canon imaging system
The XF205 features an advanced camera system capable of providing outstanding images and the responsiveness to deal with all kinds of shooting situations. A 26.8mm wide-angle lens with 20x zoom gets you closer to the action, while Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation compensates for shake in 5 directions to provide ultra-steady images.
A Canon HD CMOS Pro sensor combines with the DIGIC DV 4 processor to delivers stunning picture quality – even in low light – as well as outstanding dynamic range and realistic colour reproduction. Wide DR Gamma helps to reduce over-exposure, whilst an infrared shooting mode means the camera can easily be used at night – ideal for wildlife videographers.
Picture quality is complemented by advanced audio functions, with 4-channel Linear PCM audio recording supported.
Comfort and precise control
Compact in size, unobtrusive and a pleasure to use thanks to its 3-lens ring operation and rotatable grip, the XF205 also provides impressively high quality monitoring options. An OLED screen with a 1.23m dot resolution is easy to view, even in bright sunlight, offering better response times, definition, contrast and colour reproduction than LCD equivalents. A sizeable 1.14cm (0.45”) 1.23m dot EVF can tilt up to 68° to accommodate different shooting positions.
Versatile recording options
The XF205's dual format recording feature provides flexibility, speed and data security. Footage can be captured simultaneously in two different formats, providing instant back-up and alternate delivery options. Full HD images can be stored on two CF cards using a broadcast-standard 50Mbps MPEG2 codec, whilst an MP4 version can be saved to an SD card in either Full HD or a lower resolution - ideal for rapid file transfer in applications such as news gathering. It's even possible to stream low resolution proxy files directly to another device such as a smartphone.
Integrate and share
Timecode, Genlock and 3G-SDI terminals allow effortless connection to industry-standard broadcast equipment.
Sharing content is easy thanks to built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity. Footage can be reviewed on another device such as a tablet or smartphone, or transferred directly via FTP. This connectivity also allows for remote control of the camera via a web browser, and Canon’s RC-V100 wired remote controller can be configured too.
