A versatile Canon 20x HD wide-angle video lens captures images with outstanding clarity across a broad 26.8-576mm* zoom range.

An eight-blade circular aperture provides natural and visually pleasing bokeh. Three separate lens rings offer independent control of focus, zoom and iris/aperture settings. A new Five-Axis Dynamic SuperRange OIS System further reduces the effects of camera shake, and a new rotating handgrip enables comfortable camera positioning at all shooting angles from high to low.
Dual-frequency Wi-Fir and a CAT-5 Ethernet connector enable browser preview during shoots, in addition to FTP transfer to external PCs or laptops. The XF200 can also be used with Canon's new RC-V100 Remote Controller to provide full access to all important user functions, including start/stop, shutter/gain, zoom/focus/iris, white balance, black gamma and more.
