Product Information
The Canon XF300 professional camcorder features MPEG-2 4:2:2 recording to universally available Compact Flash (CF) cards for unsurpassed image quality and efficient, robust workflow at an affordable price. It is ideally suited to match the requirements of electronic newsgathering (ENG) crews, independent filmmakers, documentary producers, event videographers and military agencies. Utilizing file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF file wrapper ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. And 4:2:2 color sampling provides ultra-fine transitions in tone and color for maintaining the highest quality image for use in advanced post production. The XF300 also offers multiple recording bit rates, resolutions and variable frame rates to expand your creative flexibility, and allow you to work in virtually any production environment. And complete customization over the image, display and operation makes the XF300 a camcorder that can be tailored to fit your individual needs.

  • MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec
    MPEG-2 compression is both highly reliable and versatile. Developed by the Moving Pictures Expert Group (MPEG), it is one of the most widely used compression schemes in the industry for camera acquisition, over the air broadcast, cable and satellite TV. Canon's adaptation of MPEG-2 for the XF300 professional camcorder, named the Canon XF codec, ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. As well, by using an MXF file wrapper, video and audio can be wrapped in a single file along with important metadata.
  • Record to easily accessible and affordable Compact Flash cards
    Unlike other camcorders which use proprietary memory systems, the XF300 professional camcorder records to cost effective and readily available Compact Flash (CF) cards. The camcorder features two CF card slots and offers versatile recording functions.
  • Three Canon native 1920 x 1080 CMOS image sensors
    The XF300 professional camcorder incorporates three native 1920 x 1080 CMOS image sensors, which deliver outstanding Full HD video recording with minimal noise. These 1/3-inch sensors enable a compact lens and body design, for greater mobility and quick shooting.
  • Multiple recording bit rates, resolutions, and variable frame rates
    Multiple recording modes, resolutions and frame rates make the XF300 professional camcorder creatively flexible and able to work in virtually any production environment. From the highest quality 50Mbps Full HD, to the HDV compatible 25Mbps, users will find the camcorder capable of taking on any job.
  • Canon DIGIC DV III image processor
    The XF300 professional camcorder features Canon's powerful DIGIC DV III image processor, which provides enhanced shading, lifelike tonal gradations, new custom picture settings and lower power consumption. DIGIC DV III is also the high-speed engine which powers genuine Canon face detection. On-the-go videographers will appreciate the ability to track one subject in a crowd of people.
  • Brilliant ergonomics
    The XF300 professional camcorder has set a new standard for ergonomic design in compact pro camcorders. It is designed from the ground up to maximize handheld shooting comfort and usability. Users will find the camera well balanced with the handgrip positioned closer to the optical access near the camera's center of gravity. This allows the operator to easily maintain a steady shot while minimizing arm fatigue. Controls are ideally placed making the camera feel like a natural extension of the operator's body.
  • Exceptional customization
    Users of the XF300 professional camcorder have full manual control of all camera functions to adapt to both technical and artistic challenges when shooting. For maximum customization, users have access to custom picture settings, custom functions and custom display options to tailor the camera to match their creative and production needs. Any combination of these items can be saved to an SD memory card for easy setup and matching of multiple XF305 and XF300 camcorders.
  • Audio system
    A stereo microphone is incorporated into the XF300 professional camcorder, as are two XLR audio inputs with phantom power. The built in microphone provides exceptional audio in fast-paced situations while the XLR inputs provide connectivity to external microphones, and other professional audio devices. If you choose, the built-in microphone and XLR input can be used simultaneously.
