For applications such as storyboarding, continuity and publicity shots, the XA20 offers the ability to capture 1920 x 1080 still images. Photos may be captured to an SD memory card during recording, as well as “frame grabbed” during playback.
Perfect for news crews and live event shooters, the XA20 continuously buffers approximately three seconds of video in memory. When the Record button is pressed, recording begins and the contents of buffer memory are added, so you never miss an important shot.
Intelligent Battery System
The XA20 Professional Camcorder is compatible with Canon’s Intelligent Lithium-ion batteries. These batteries communicate remaining running time (down to the minute) so the user is well informed at all times.
