Videographers depend on this feature to confirm accurate exposure and color levels during the capture process. Typically only found on expensive external units, the Canon XF105 Professional Camcorder has a waveform monitor built right into the camera. The waveform monitor shows a detailed view of overall image brightness and RGB components.
Optional Canon WD-H58W Wide Converter
Optically matched for the XF105’s HD lens, the WD-H58W Wide Converter provides a magnification factor of 0.8x increasing wide angle capability to approximately 24mm (35mm equivalent).
Intelligent Battery System
The XF105 Professional Camcorder is compatible with Canon’s new BP-925, as well as the BP-955 and BP-975 Intelligent Lithium-ion batteries. These batteries communicate remaining running time (down to the minute) and wear data back to the camcorder, so the user is well-informed at all times. On the outside of the battery, four LED lamps allow battery life to be viewed quickly when in the field.
Additionally, the camcorder is compatible with existing Canon BP-900 series batteries. Batteries can also be inserted and removed while the supplied AC power cable is connected.
For applications such as storyboarding, continuity and publicity shots, the XF105 offers the ability to capture 1920 x 1080 still images. Photos may be captured to an SD memory card during the time of recording, as well as “frame grabbed” during playback.
