Record to affordable Compact Flash Cards


Unlike other camcorders which use proprietary memory systems, the XF300 Professional Camcorder records to cost effective Compact Flash (CF) cards. The camcorder features two CF card slots and offers versatile recording functions including:
 
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.

Genuine 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.
 
18x Optical ZoomFor enhanced versatility and durability, the lens is equipped with three built-in glass, neutral density (ND) filters (¼, 1/16 and 1/64) and a six-blade metal aperture iris.

SuperRange Optical Image Stabilizer
The XF300 also incorporates a newly designed SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization system (lens shift) 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 - for example, in news gathering or documentary work.

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.

Instant AF is not possible with the WA-H82. 

Three Canon Native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Image Sensors

 

Newly designed and manufactured exclusively by Canon, the XF300 Professional Camcorder incorporates three native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Image Sensors, which deliver outstanding Full HD video recording with minimal noise. These 1/3-inch sensors enable a compact lens and body design, for greater mobility and quick shooting.
 
   
 
 

 

 

Multiple Recording Bit Rates, Resolutions, and Variable Frame Rates

 


Multiple recording modes, resolutions and frame rates make the XF300 Professional Camcorder creatively flexible and able to work in virtually any production environment. From the highest quality 50Mbps Full HD, to the HDV compatible 25Mbps, users will find the camcorder capable of taking on any job.

Variable Frame Rates
The XF300 Professional Camcorder offers a full range of selectable frame rates. You can choose between 60i, 60p, 30p and 24p settings to achieve just the look you want.
  • 60p Frame Rate (Available in 720p Mode Only)
    In addition to the standard interlaced frame rate of 60i, the XF305 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, XF300 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 XF300 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.
