Ready for Professional Productions
As a pro-level camcorder suited to a wide variety of creative productions, the Canon XF605 centres around a large 1.0-Type CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV7 processor. These work in tandem to produce stunning 4K UHD 60P/50P in 4:2:2 10-bit XF-AVC and MP4. This affords a clear, colour-accurate, and detailed image that is ideally suited to news broadcasting, documentary filmmaking, corporate productions, and even livestreams. In addition to this, the XF605 offers FHD 120P HFR (High Frame Rate) recording with simultaneous audio capture. You are provided with an exceptional final image, as well as improved flexibility in post-production; great for freelance videographers, small production crews, and TV studios alike.
The Canon XF605 also affords an expansive dynamic range in Canon Log 3 to ensure a more cohesive post-production process. Or for when time constraints are more prevalent, shoot directly in broadcast-ready PQ or HLG HDR formats. You can even record simultaneously to dual SD cards in a range of varying formats to maximise versatility and guarantee a smooth production process from start to finish.
Enhanced Optics and AF Control
The high-powered integrated L-Series lens offers 4K visual recording, as well as a functional 15x optical zoom. You are provided a highly tactile recording process, with independent rings for Zoom, Focus, and Iris control. The lens also features three image stabilisation modes to include Dynamic, Standard, and Powered, whilst the in-built ND and infrared filters offer advanced control and clarity.
As a versatile camcorder, the XF605 utilises pin-sharp Eye tracking AF, which is great for on-location and field recording. New to the XF Series, this camera system further employs intelligent head tracking via EOS iTR AF X. Defined as an innovative ‘deep learning’ technology, it allows the focus to track a subjects’ head, even when they have turned away from the camera. This is particularly impressive for shooting pieces to camera, journalistic-style filmmaking, dynamic documentary shooting, and news casting.
Encourages an Efficient Creative Workflow
To support both live and offline production workflows, the XF605 implements 12G-SDI, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet for IP streaming. In addition, the Content Transfer Mobile app allows you to edit News ML-G2 standard compliant metadata, transfer footage directly to your iPhone, and even upload to FTP servers.
Tactile and Customisable User-Interface
As a high-end production tool, the Canon XF605 is both controlled and customisable to your individual requirements. This relates to the intuitive Independent controls, 11 user-assignable buttons, and an enhanced touchscreen interface. You can access on-screen settings, navigate vast menus, and playback footage with ease. To round-off this impressive set of external features is a multi-functional hot-shoe mount compatible with a range of additional accessories to include lights, microphones, and more.
