Canon XF-200 overview

  • 1Description

The PAL Canon XF200 HD Camcorder is a compact and ergonomically friendly camera that is suitable for traditional multi-camera productions, as well as ENG/event-style coverage, independent filmmaking, and documentary. This camera is designed to be compatible with European broadcast standards, therefore it is not compatible with NTSC. The camera features a 1/2.8" CMOS sensor that captures 1920 x 1080 video at 50/25p. The integrated Canon 20x HD optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 26.8 to 576mm, and features an eight-bladed iris to render highlights in a more natural manner. Individual gear rings for focus, zoom, and iris on the lens provide a natural way to make manual adjustments.

The camera records MPEG-2 at frame rates of 50/25p and 50i at up to 50 Mbps, with 4:2:2 color sampling, to integrated Compact Flash card slots using an MXF wrapper compatible with most popular NLE systems. You can also record to an integrated SDXC card slot using the MP4 codec at frame rates up to 50P. The XF200 features four channels of manual/auto audio record levels with two XLR inputs and an on-camera microphone. The built-in hand grip features 120° of rotation, making it easier to find a comfortable shooting position.

Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi allows you to control the camera's functions from mobile devices, as well as view footage. Proxy files can be transferred via Wi-Fi while you are shooting new footage. The camera also incorporates an Ethernet connection, so you can transfer files directly from the camera to the cloud. An HDMI port provides you with video out.

1920 x 1080 CMOS Sensor

The XF200 features a 1/2.8" HD CMOS image sensor that is slightly larger than a 1/3" sensor. The sensor features approximately 5% more pixels than 1920 x 1080 and records a 1920 x 1080 window from the slightly large sensor. This allows the camera to use the extra pixels for Electronic Image Stabilization, maintaining the 1920 x 1080 resolution without degrading the image by blowing it up, as with traditional EIS systems.

20x Optical Zoom Lens

The Canon 20x HD zoom lens provides a zoom range with 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm-576mm, with a minimum object distance of just 23.6". The lens features an eight-blade iris design providing out-of-focus highlights with a natural rounded appearance.
The lens features three infinitely rotating rings for focus, zoom, and iris. The rings use an electronic coupling to move the lens functions while maintaining a mechanically-linked feel during use.

Image Stabilization

The XF200 offers optical image stabilization (OIS) which is useful for reducing image blur in a wide variety of shooting situations. It also utilizes electronic image stabilization (EIS) in conjunction with the OIS, providing 5-axis image stabilization.

Slow and Fast Motion

In MXF recording, the camera is capable fo the following off-speed frame rates for slow or fast motion effect:
1080p: 12, 15, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 fps
720p: 12, 15, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 30, 32, 34, 37, 42, 45, 48, 50 fps

Advanced Displays

The camera features focus peaking, a selectable waveform monitor display, and zebra bars.

OLED View Screen and EVF

The 3.5" Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display provides vivid color and 1.23 MP resolution. The view screen has a viewing angle of over 80 degrees in all directions, which allows you to see a usable image even when you're off angle to the screen. The Color EVF is 0.45 inch with 1.23MP of resolution, tilting up to 45° to accommodate different shooting positions.


The XF200 features an integrated mic and two XLR Line/Mic level inputs with +48V phantom power for external mics.


The camera features an HDMI output connector.

Media Card Slots

Dual CF Card slots allow varied recording options.
  • Dual recording allows you to simultaneously record the same footage to different media cards using different codecs and bit rates
  • Double-slot recording lets you record simultaneously to each of the two CF memory card slots, providing an instant backup for your footage
  • Relay recording allows the XF200 to automatically switch video recording from one memory card to the other when the first memory card becomes full
The SDXC slot can be used to record high quality MP4 files, and you can record to one CF card slot and the SDXC card slot simultaneously.

Infrared Shooting Mode

Engaging the infrared (IR) shooting mode moves the IR Cut filter out of the optical path, for shooting in extreme low light conditions. An IR emitter built into the top handle provides an IR source.

Wi-Fi Connectivity

Dual-band Wi-Fi (5G Hz and 2.4 GHz) support is built into the camera, allowing FTP file transfer of MP4 video. The camera supports a web browser interface that, combined with Wi-Fi support, allows you to control key camera features, including start/stop recording, zoom (limited to three speeds), exposure functions, and focus using a smart phone or tablet. You can also view and download recorded MP4 footage from the camera on a PC or mobile device while continuing to shoot.

Wired Connectivity

An integrated Ethernet port allows you to link your camera to existing wired networks and wireless routers, allowing you to download footage from the memory cards.
The camera features an autofocus system with several useful modes, including Instant AF, which uses both the TTL-Video Signal Detection System and the external sensor, and Face Detection AF, which tracks the focus on faces in the video frame.
Wide Dynamic Range
Wide Dynamic Range gamma of 600% helps prevent overexposure, even for high brightness areas of an image and/or with non-uniform colors. Unlike the normal knee function that compresses video signals in high brightness areas using linear gamma, a wide DR gamma retains continuity across the image and enables color grading.
