    The Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder is a compact, high-performance, high image quality system ideal for use with a variety of digital cinema and broadcast operations. Targeted at sports production, TV variety shows, commercials and drama shows, in addition to independent movie production, government applications, education, weddings and other social event videography, the camcorder features a wide-angle 20x optical zoom lens with three control rings, image stabilization, infrared capabilities, flexible MXF/MP4 dual recording at various data rates, two/four-channel audio recording, Wi-Fi connectivity, plus 3G-SDI and monitor outputs as well as time code and genlock connections.

    A versatile Canon 20x HD wide-angle video lens captures images with outstanding clarity across a broad 26.8-576 mm* zoom range. An eight-blade circular aperture provides natural and visually pleasing bokeh. Three separate rings control focus, zoom and iris settings. A new Five-Axis Dynamic SuperRange OIS System dramatically reduces the image-degrading effects of camera shake, and a new rotating handgrip enables comfortable camera positioning at shooting angles from high to low.

    Dual-frequency Wi-Fi and an Ethernet connector enable browser preview during shoots, in addition to FTP transfer to external servers, PCs or laptops. HD-SDI ports handle video with embedded audio and time code data for monitoring and recording of frame rates up to 30fps, and a new 3G-SDI port supports 1080p video at frame rates up to 60 fps. Time code I/O helps ensure frame-accurate sync during editing and post-production. The XF205 camcorder can also be used with Canon's new RC-V100 Remote Controller to provide full access to important user functions, including start/stop, zoom/focus/iris, white balance and more.

    The XF205 professional camcorder features a highly versatile Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens that captures superb images with outstanding clarity at 900 TV lines of resolution. Offering a 35mm equivalent zoom of 26.8-576 mm, the optical zoom lens provides an extended range that can prove ideal for wide-angle to extreme telephoto shooting. When compared to previous XF professional camcorder models, the XF205's flexible focal range and enhanced wide angle offer many creative options, even when working at a distance. An eight-blade circular aperture provides a natural and visually pleasing bokeh effect to out of focus highlights.

    In addition, the XF205 features three separate, banked lens rings that provide independent control of critical focus, zoom and iris/aperture settings, with adequate separation to improve ease of use. Separate gain and white-balance toggle switches are provided. Also, the camera's zoom speed is now up to 1.8x faster than the XF105/XF100 professional camcorders, with three selectable zoom speeds for creative control.
