XF305


Combining new cutting-edge imaging systems with a design built for mobility and versatility, the XF 305 is built to meet the highest professional broadcast standards with unrivalled quality..
  • Professional HD camcorder with 18x wide-angle L-series lens
  • Records to Compact Flash (CF) memory cards
  • With HD-SDI, GENLOCK, Time Code

50Mbps MPEG-2 4:2:2

Featuring the highly reliable and versatile MPEG-2 compression, Canon’s adaptation of MPEG-2 is the Canon XF Codec, which ensures widest compatibility with existing industry systems. This professional camcorder also supports the highest HD quality with Full HD 1920 x 1080 dpi resolution, up to 50 Mbps bit rate and highest quality 4:2:2 colour sampling, which is twice the colour resolution of HDV.

CF Card recording media

One of the first of its kind, this professional camcorder allows direct recording to the universally available Compact Flash (CF) Cards for unsurpassed image quality matched with convenience and efficiency. Recording functions including Relay Recording, Hot Swapping, File Copy and Backup and Pre Record allow greater recording versatility.

Broadcast standard lens

High index, ultra-low dispersion (Hi-UD) glass is placed at the front of this professional camcorder’s lens path to suppress chromatic aberration. The Hi-UD glass is combined with ultra-low dispersion (UD), ultra-high refractive index aspherical (UA) and two double-sided aspherical elements to provide sharp, detailed images, thus making it ideal to meet stringent broadcast transmission standards.
