XA20 HD Camcorder
Weighing in at less than two pounds, the XA20 delivers professional Full HD video recording in a compact ENG-style “run-and-gun” package. Thanks to a powerful new 20x HD Video Lens with a new 8-blade circular iris, the XA20 is able to capture exceptionally smooth and pleasing out-of-focus areas, or “bokeh,” when capturing shallow depth-of-field for an artistic effect. The XA20 features both AVCHD and H.264/MP4 compression codecs, which allows for easy editing in an NLE workflow environment. MP4 compression enables direct video playback on iOS devices as well as the ability to upload to social networking sites without the need of additional image conversion.
- New Canon 1/2.84-inch HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor effectively provides 2.91 Megapixels – 1920 pixels horizontal x 1080 pixels vertical – for outstanding video resolution, improved low-light performance and a wide dynamic range
- Fast opening lens barrier activated by a switch located on the side of the lens hood protects the lens in harsh shooting environments when the camera is not in use
- 3.5-inch, touch-sensitive Organic Electroluminescence/EL Panel features a self-light-emitting organic that offers a high contrast, high-speed response image. Unlike other EL panels, the XA20 display incorporates a function that prompts the user to correct for brightness changes, and a special sensor that adjusts brightness to match the luminance.
- Incorporated ENG-style “seesaw” zoom lever for improved operation and control
- Two Secure Digital (SD) card slots and versatile recording functions, including Relay Recording, Dual Recording, double slot recording, and file copy and backup are available
