XF300 HD Camcorder
This is a professional, 3-sensor HD video camera, aimed at the user who needs maximum flexibility along with reasonably compact size. Especially for those who intend to work with one camera, the XF300's superb L-series lens, three native 1920x1080 CMOS imaging sensors, and Canon's MPEG-2 XF Codec (4:2:2 color sampling) combine for outstanding image quality. The lens is a full 18x lens, equal to 29mm–527mm on a 35mm film camera, with Image Stabilization. Tremendous customization, twin CF-card recording slots, and more make it ideal for independent filmmakers, high-end corporate users, and more.
