Features

MPEG-2 compression is both highly reliable and versatile. Developed by the Moving Pictures Expert Group (MPEG), it is one of the most widely used compression schemes in the industry for camera acquisition, over the AIR broadcast, cable and satellite TV. Canon's adaptation of MPEG-2 for the XF105 Professional Camcorder, named the Canon XF Codec, ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. As well, by using an MXF file wrapper, video and audio can be wrapped in a single file along with important metadata.

The XF105 supports the highest HD quality with Full HD 1920x1080 resolution, up to a 50Mbps bit rate and 4:2:2 color SAMPLING.

4:2:2 color sampling provides twice the color resolution of HDV and other codecs that use 4:2:0 color sampling. 4:2:2 provides ultra-fine transitions in tone and color and maintains the highest quality image for use in post production processes such as chroma keying, color grading, ADVANCED compositing and effects.

The codec's 50Mbps constant bit rate provides the bandwidth needed to capture the XF105's superior resolution and color in spectacular detail.



Unlike other camcorders which use proprietary memory systems, the XF105 Professional Camcorder records to cost-effective Compact Flash (CF) cards. The camcorder features two CF card slots and offers versatile recording functions including:

The XF305 supports the highest HD quality with Full HD 1920x1080 resolution, up to 50Mbps bit rate and 4:2:2 color SAMPLING.


Relay recording:

When one CF card becomes full, the camcorder automatically switches video recording to the other CF card.


HOT swapping:

Media can be replaced without turning off the camcorder. And while recording, the other card can be removed without interruption.


File copy and BACKUP:

Files may be copied from one card to the next – ideal for backing up when on location.


Pre Record:

Perfect for news crews and live event shooters, the camcorder 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.








Double Slot Recording

For safety and convenience, the Double Slot Recording feature allows you to record simultaneously to each of the two CF cards, providing an instant BACKUP for your footage.

To edit as a 30P project, please use clips recorded using the 50Mbps (4:2:2), 30P, or 35Mbps (4:2:0), 30P video configurations.

    3. When linking MXF files using the Link to AMA File(s) menu option, a name other than Canon may appear in the Video properties. However, the clips will be correctly linked.

Canon's optical expertise is clearly seen in the XF105's Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens. It delivers flexibility in image capture with a zoom range of 30.4 – 304mm (35mm equivalent).

Power zoom is available in Constant and Variable settings in 3 modes, Fast (approx. 1.9 – 60 seconds), Normal (approx. 3.0 – 180 seconds) and Slow (approx. 4.0 – 285 seconds). To provide added control, there are 16 predefined steps in Constant mode and rocker switch pressure sensitive or control ring speed management in Variable mode.

For enhanced versatility the XF105 offers a built-in gradation type neutral density (ND) filter (approximately 1/8), as well as an eight blade metal aperture iris.

A customizable manual control ring allows users to assign focus, zoom, or iris. These functions are easily selected through a switch on the lens barrel.

Additionally, a custom dial is available which allows the iris to be controlled.

SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer

The XF105 also incorporates a SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization system (lens shift) with four modes: Standard, Powered, Dynamic and Off.

Standard:
Lens shift is controlled so that the maximum compensation angle is constant from wide angle through telephoto.

Powered:
Vibration is suppressed at the telephoto end of the range, where shake is most apparent due to high magnification.

Dynamic:
Stabilization changes throughout the zoom range to minimize more pronounced shaking. This is especially useful at wide-angle focal lengths when walking.

Instant AF

When shooting high definition video, sharp focus becomes more critical than ever. Canon's proprietary Instant AF system combines an external AF sensor with Canon's legendary auto focus system for fast and accurate focus. Together, the two sensors reduce focusing time - even in low-light, low contrast, or high brightness situations - and improve focusing performance on difficult subjects.

The XF105 gives you a choice of five AF modes for different shooting applications:

  • Instant AF changes focus as rapidly as possible, for those applications in which quick focus is more important than other considerations - for example, in news gathering or documentary work.

  • Medium AF changes focus at a speed which is softer and smoother than Instant AF, but faster than would likely be possible manually.




  • Normal AF changes focus at a speed that appears natural and doesn't distract the viewer.

  • Face AF tracks focus on faces when present. The user selects the face to be tracked. Face AF has the ability to track even if the subject face is in profile. If the chosen tracked face is not present in a shot, the subject in the center of the screen will automatically be brought into focus.

  • Face Only AF automatically tracks the chosen tracked face in focus but, should that face leave the scene, will reset focus to manual mode.

Minimum Object Distance

When shooting with the XF105, the minimum focus distance is 20mm (0.78 inches) at Macro and maintains 60cm (1.97 feet) throughout the entire zoom range. This allows excellent versatility in a wide range of shooting situations.

8-Blade Iris

In contrast to a typical 6-blade iris, the XF105's 8-blade iris captures extraordinarily smooth out-of-focus ‘bokeh' for a more attractive image effect. The additional blades also reduce diffraction of light passing through the iris, allowing for the use of smaller apertures while maintaining image quality.

The Digital Teleconverter extends the reach of the optical zoom, and is selectable by 1.5x, 3x and 6x. This feature is ideal when extreme telephoto shooting is needed such as in sports and wildlife, as well as surveillance applications for law enforcement and the military.

Newly designed and manufactured exclusively by Canon, the XF105 Professional Camcorder incorporates a native 1/3-inch, 1920 x 1080 CMOS Image Sensor, delivering superb Full HD video recording with minimal noise. The high sensitivity and wide dynamic range of this sensor are what demanding users expect from Canon. Slow and fast motion shooting is supported for greater flexibility in creative choice and its compactness contributes greatly to the small, super handy size of the XF105 and its outstanding usability in the field.


Aside from providing the professional user with complete control over THE IMAGE, the Canon XF105 Professional Camcorder also provides complete creative freedom when it comes to inputs and outputs. It features industry standard HD-SDI output and a genlock/time code terminal (BNC style), making it ideally suited for multi-camera or 3D productions.

HD-SDI & SD-SDI Output

The HD-SDI output provides an uncompressed, 1.485 Gbps signal at 1920x1080 resolution with 4:2:2 color sampling and embedded audio and time code.

  • 60p Frame Rate (Available in 720p Mode Only)
    In addition to the standard interlaced frame rate of 60i, the XF105 is able to capture at 60p. 60p is rapidly becoming the standard for fast-action sports.

  • 30p Frame Rate
    30p is the ideal frame rate for video viewed on THE INTERNET. It is also an excellent choice for frame grabbing during playback.

  • 24p Frame Rate
    24p matches the frame rate of a traditional film camera giving the same cadence and temporal motion needed for a "film look."

Optional 50i/50p/25p Frame Rate UPGRADE

For added versatility, the XF105 can be customized to record in both 60i/50i, 60p/50p, and 24p/25p (this optional upgrade must be performed by a Canon Factory Service Center)

Slow Motion & Fast Motion

Slow and Fast Motion Modes allow the XF105 to record a different frame rate than the playback frame rate, resulting in either a fast or slow motion effect during playback. Since the camera is recording real frames and modifying the playback rate, there is no quality loss and maximum image quality is maintained.

In 1080 mode, fast motion is supported up to 2.5x the normal rate and as slow as 1/2.5x. In 720 mode, fast motion is supported up to 5x the normal rate and as slow as 1/1.25x.

The XF105 Professional Camcorder features an Infrared Mode allowing users to capture video in conditions with little to no ambient light, a situation which would make other camcorders useless. During infrared capture, the infrared cutoff filter is removed from the optical path. Combined with a specially designed lens coating, infrared light is able to pass through to THE IMAGE sensor. Additionally, the XF105 features an infrared emitter with a diffuser to shoot pleasing infrared imagery even in complete darkness. For the nature videographers or law enforcement users, the benefits of a compact, high performance camcorder for shooting in such conditions is obvious. Without the need to add lights, the shooter may remain hidden from their subjects. Also, the XF105 gives the option of recording in green or white light mode.
