The Canon XF205 HD Camcorder is a compact, ergonomically friendly camera. It features a 1/2.84" CMOS sensor that captures 1920 x 1080 video at frame rates up to 59.94p, including a 24p mode for a more cinematic feel. The integrated Canon 20x HD Optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 26.8 to 576mm and features an 8-bladed iris to render highlights in a more natural manner. Individual lens rings for focus, zoom, and iris on the lens itself provide you a natural way to make manual adjustments. The camera records 4:2:2 MPEG-2 at frame rates of 23.98/29.97p and 59.94i at up to 50Mbps to CF cards using Canon's proven MXF wrapper that is compatible with common NLE systems. You can also choose to record simultaneously or only to an integrated SDXC card slot using the MP4 codec at frame rates up to 59.94P & bit rates up to 35Mbps. The built-in hand grip allow for 120° of rotation, making it easier to find a comfortable shooting position. Built-in dual-band WiFi allows you to control the cameras functions from available mobile devices as well as view footage from the camera on the devices. Proxy files can be transferred via WiFi while you are shooting new footage. The camera also incorporates an Ethernet connection so you can transfer files across your network directly from the camera. A USB port allows for direct file transfer from the camera.
