The Canon XF305 Professional Camcorder records 50Mbps MPEG-2 4:2:2 to Compact Flash (CF) cards. This affordable camcorder is suited to news gathering or ENG work, independent filmmakers on a low budget, documentary producers, and event videographers. It also suits corporate branding departments.

Canon listened to the needs of the production community when the XF305 was released. The combination of recording MPEG-2 4:2:2 50Mbps onto CF cards now provides excellent image quality and an efficient, robust workflow at an affordable price. The camera is lightweight with a form factor which sits easily in the hand. 

Canon utilized file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF File Wrapper to ensure the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata, and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. 4:2:2 color sampling provides ultra-fine transitions in tone and color for maintaining the highest quality image for use in advanced post production. The 50 Mbps the MPEG-2 format is widely accepted by major television networks across the United States.

A Genuine Canon 18x HD L-Series lens, along with three Canon native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Image Sensors, delivers pristine image quality.

The XF305 incorporates industry-standard HD-SDI output, genlock input and SMPTE time code input/output terminals makes the Canon XF305 perfectly matched for live application and multi-camera shooting.

The XF305 also offers multiple recording bit rates, resolutions and variable frame rates to expand your creative flexibility, and allow you to work in virtually any production environment. Complete customization over the image (paint settings), display and operation makes the XF305 a camcorder that can be tailored to the needs of different professionals.

Recording & MPEG-2 Compression

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 XF305 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 XF305 supports the highest HD quality with Full HD 1920x1080 resolution, up to 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 XF305’s superior resolution and color in spectacular detail.

Record to CF Cards

Unlike other camcorders which use proprietary memory systems, the XF305 Professional Camcorder records to cost effective Compact Flash (CF) cards. The camcorder features two CF card slots and offers versatile recording functions.

  • 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 & Backup - Files may be copied from one card to the next – ideal for backing up when on location.
  • Pre-Record (a.k.a. Cache) - 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.

Canon 18x HD L-Series Lens

Inspired by the same high level of optical precision used in Canon broadcast and photographic lenses, the Canon XF300 Professional Camcorder incorporates a Genuine Canon 18x HD L-Series lens that features a wide and impressive zoom range of 29.3 – 527.4mm (35mm equivalent). The lens incorporates High Index – Ultra-low Dispersion (HI-UD), Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) and aspherical elements to minimize chromatic aberration while delivering a resolution of 1,000 TV lines.

In Full Manual Mode, the lens features mechanical stops for both the zoom and focus systems. Mechanical (Hard) end stops ensure that repeatable and dependable focus and zoom can be achieved when manually turning the lens barrel. These mechanical stops also allow for compatibility with many third-party remote camera controllers that require end stops in order to calibrate themselves. Additionally, display distance indicators on the lens barrel allow the operator to easily set the desired focus distance and move between focus points while recording. 

For enhanced versatility and durability, the lens is equipped with three built-in glass, neutral density (ND) filters (1/4, 1/16 and 1/64) and a six-blade metal aperture iris. 

  • SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization with three modes: Standard, Dynamic and Powered
    • Standard: lens shift is controlled so that the maximum compensation angle is constant from wide angle through telephoto
    • Dynamic: stabilization changes throughout the zoom range to minimize more pronounced shaking; this is especially useful at wide-angle focal lengths when walking
    • Powered: vibration is suppressed at the telephoto end of the range, where shake is most apparent due to high magnification
  • 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 XF300 gives you a choice of two AF modes for different shooting applications:
      • Normal AF: changes focus at a speed that appears natural and doesn't distract the viewer
      • Instant AF: changes focus as rapidly as possible and is designed for applications in which quick focus is more important than other considerations
  • Optional Canon WA-H82 Wide Attachment (0.8X): optically MATCHED for the XF300’s HD lens, the WA-H82 Wide Attachment increases wide angle capability to approximately 24mm (35mm equivalent), while maintaining the versatility of a 4X zoom range

NOTE: Instant AF is not possible with the WA-H82.
