Canon’s XF100 is the smallest camcorder to include an MPEG-2, 50Mbps, 4:2:2 Full HD codec. CF card recording, professional audio and extensive customisation provides exceptional versatility.
MPEG-2 recording at up to 50Mbps (4:2:2)
The XF100 records MPEG-2 MXF (Media eXchange Format) files – up to 1920 x 1080 Full HD at 50Mbps (4:2:2) – to relatively inexpensive and widely available CompactFlash (CF) memory cards. Relay Recording across two card slots allow filming to continue without interruption, whilst Double Slot Recording lets you store the same footage to both cards.
Light, compact design; XLR inputs
Putting exceptional functionality in the palm of your hand, the durable and lightweight design enables exceptional versatility. Linear PCM audio can be captured via twin XLR inputs and also using the front-mounted stereo microphone.
10x zoom Canon HD Video Lens
Drawing on Canon’s broadcast lens expertise, XF100 features a fast, wide angle Canon HD Video Lens (f1.8-f2.8, 30.4mm) with built-in control ring for adjustment of zoom, focus or iris. An enhanced Optical Image Stabilizer system helps to reduce chromatic aberration, maintain sharpness and reduce lens size.
1/3 type Full HD Canon CMOS
A 2.07MP Full HD CMOS sensor – designed and manufactured by Canon – captures Full HD video at native 1920×1080 resolution. The sensor is equipped with a Bayer pattern colour filter for high sensitivity and wide dynamic range; high-speed data readout technology minimises rolling-shutter skew that can occur in CMOS camcorders.
