XF305 HD Camcorder
All the same terrific features and capabilities as Canon's XF300 professional HD video camera, but with the addition of industry-standard SMPTE Time Code (input and output), Genlock input, and SDI terminals. The XF305 is thus especially suited to users who will occasionally use two or more cameras simultaneously, with built-in systems for precise timing and editing of video files after recording is finished. Highlighted by three 1920x1080 pixel CMOS sensors and Canon's brilliant XF Codec (50Mbps; MPEG-2; 4:2:2 color sampling), image quality exceeds what many users thought possible in a compact pro-oriented HD video camera.
- Superior Canon L-series zoom lens: 18x (29–527mm equivalent), with hard mechanical end stops for zoom and focus operation when used in Manual mode
- Three built-in, glass Neutral Density filters, to cut light in super-bright conditions: 3/4, 1/16, and 1/64th
- Compatible with most Non-Linear Editing (NLE) software from major software vendors
- Same excellent handling, ergonomics and design as Canon's XF305 HD video camera
