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