Canon XF305 Package

The XF305 sets a new standard for ergonomic design in compact pro camcorders. It is designed from the ground up to maximize handheld shooting comfort and usability. Controls are ideally placed making the camera feel like a natural extension of the operator’s body.

 The XF305 features

A re-designed layout to make using the camcorder highly intuitive. New users and anyone switching from other products will find the button layout, camera menu system and camera controls immediately familiar.

Following on the heels of its widely respected XH line of tape-based camcorders, the XF305 takes advantage of the latest HD technology–along with Canon’s newly developed MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec–to record full HD video to widely available compact flash cards.

Everything you could want in a handheld, professional camcorder is here in one sleek, affordable package: three 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensors, multiple bit rates (up to 50Mbps), variable resolution and frame rates, industry-standard MXF file wrappers, a newly developed L-Series 18x zoom lens, and full image customization.

In addition to the HDMI/Component/Composite outputs found on the XF300, the XF305 includes HD/SD-SDI output, genlock, and SMPTE time code terminals–widening its range of applications to live and multi-camera shooting. With such exceptional levels of image quality, ergonomics, and control, the XF305 is also the perfect camera for documentaries, independent features, and event videographers.
