Canon’s first professional camcorder with the new XF-HEVC file format enables the recording of internal 4:2:2 10-bit UHD (HLG/PQ) files to SD cards, plus it can output a UHD signal over a single 12G-SDI interface or Ethernet connection.
A 1.0-Type CMOS sensor and DIGIC processor produce professional 4K UHD 50P images in 4:2:2 10-bit, utilising Canon’s new and efficient XF-HEVC file format for smaller files that can be recorded direct to SD cards. Multiple recording formats are also supported including XF-AVC, and high frame rates up to 120P.
XF705 can record internally in two HDR formats, using HLG or PQ, and features extensive HDR assist functions that aid the user in controlling the exposure for HDR shooting. Alternatively, for less time-critical productions, Canon Log3/BT.2020 support enables flexibility in an HDR post-production workflow.
With four times the bandwidth of 3G-SDI, the 12G-SDI terminal is capable of sending high quality uncompressed data over a single professional interface, while a built-in Ethernet port enables 4K IP streaming.
The best image capture starts with outstanding optics and Canon’s L-series lens delivers just that – in a compact, 3-ring, 15x wide angle zoom that incorporates 5-axis image stabilisation and is designed for exceptional 4K UHD capture.
Canon’s innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF system provides features that ensure both auto and manual focusing is accurate and reliable, giving you the confidence to open up the aperture, track moving subjects and focus pull with minimal effort.
The XF705 has enhanced ergonomics and professional features, including HDR image monitoring using the built-in EVF and vari-angle LCD touchscreen, plus an improved grip and shoulder pad reduce strain and fatigue.
