Canon Middle East has expanded its professional video range with the launch of the XF205 and XF200 compact video cameras designed for a wide range of camera operators.
Building on the blueprint of Canon’s highly successful XF105 and XF100 cameras, the new models have been enhanced to reflect feedback received from professionals working in a variety of fields.
Further extending the XF range, both offer even greater versatility, with a more powerful Canon HD Video System, numerous recording modes, wireless connectivity and an enhanced operational design – providing operators with greater freedom to shoot, view and distribute their footage during assignments.
Both models are powered by the Canon HD Video System. Each features a 26.8mm wide-angle Canon HD lens with an optical zoom that has been doubled to 20x, and works alongside Canon’s latest HD CMOS PRO imaging sensor and a powerful DIGIC DV 4 processor. Combined with 50Mbps MPEG recording and 4:2:2 colour sampling, the result is video quality suitable for broadcast, with high sensitivity and wide dynamic range that delivers excellent results, even in low light situations.
The XF205 and XF200 have been designed to support the growing and diverse requirements of camera operators – enabling them to shoot for numerous platforms at once. A range of recording options provide the flexibility to simultaneously record high definition MXF files to CF cards and MP4 files to an SD card, in HD or lower resolutions – ideal for capturing footage intended for both broadcast and web channels.
