The Canon XF305 Professional Camcorder

The Canon XF 305 represents Canon’s entry into professional solid-state video acquisition. Key features include:

CMOS Sensor. The XF 305 utilizes three 1920×1080 1/3" CMOS sensors, and you can choose between 60i, 60p, 30p and 24p settings to achieve just the look you want. The camera supports full HD 1920×1080 resolution, up to 50Mbps bit rate, and 4:2:2 color sampling.

Fast and Slow Motion Recording. The camera can record at one frame rate and play back at another, allowing fast and slow motion recording without loss of image quality. The XF 305 can also do interval frame recording at any of 25 rates from 1 second to 10 minutes.

Compact Flash Card Recording. The camera records to UDMA CF memory cards and has two card slots that are hot-swappable, allowing you to change cards without interrupting shooting.

Canon 18x HD Zoom Lens. The L-series lens has a zoom range of 29-527mm (35mm equivalent), twin autofocus systems, and three-mode optical image stabilization. A waveform monitor and vectorscope are also built right into the camera.

HD-SDI Output and Genlock Input. The XF 305 features industry-standard HD-SDI output, genlock input, and time code input/output terminals (BNC style), making it ideally suited for multi-camera or 3-D productions.

Additional Features. Inputs and outputs, including HDMI Output, Component Video Output, Composite Video Output (BNC and 3.5mm), USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Terminal, and a Remote Control Terminal (compatible with LANC protocol). There is also a built-in stereo microphone and two XLR audio inputs with +48V phantom power.

Kris's Take

Canon’s flagship prosumer camera. Identical to its younger brother the XF 300 except for the addition of more professional inputs/outputs. But that one small addition opens up a world of opportunities for possible applications. The most exciting of these features is the ability to use these cameras for shooting 3D.

If you don't see exactly what you're looking for and that makes you sad, please give us a shout. We might have good news for you. Here's a link to our contact form.

We offer a 3-day inspection period on all sales, during which time you may return the item for a refund of the purchase price, not including shipping.

On this item, we include a LensAuthority 90-day limited warranty. This warranty covers damage that arises from normal use of the item. It does NOT cover accidental or intentional damage. More details are available in our FAQ section.

In addition to the standard 90-day warranty, you may have the option to purchase an extended warranty. If we're able to offer an extended warranty on this item, you'll see a checkbox to add that warranty - see the area just above the "Add to Cart" button.

If you select the extended warranty, you'll get additional protection from Consumer Priority Service ("CPS"). The CPS warranty will take effect after our 90-day warranty ends. However, the CPS warranty term would begin on the date of purchase. For example, if you buy an item with a 2-year extended warranty today, your coverage would end two years from today.
