Canon XF205 overview

  • 1Description

Canon's XF205 ENG Backpack Kit provides a complete handheld camera package suitable for ENG/event production. The camera shoots HD video up to 59.94 fps and records to two CF card slots or a single SDXC card slot (media not included). The included XF205 features 4:2:2 color sampling, Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, HDMI output, and HD/3G-SDI outputs, as well as Timecode and Genlock connectors.

The spare battery provides extra power for continued shooting, while the on-camera LED light is adjustable from daylight to tungsten by simply rotating a knob. The included shotgun mic mounts on the camera, allowing you to bypass the camera's built-in mic for clean audio capture without camera handling noise. This entire package fits into the included backpack, allowing you to travel with your equipment comfortably and securely.

  • XF205 HD Camcorder

    The Canon XF205 HD Camcorder is a compact, ergonomically friendly camera that is suitable for traditional multi-camera productions as well as ENG/event style coverage, independent and documentary filmmaking. The camera features a 1/2.84" CMOS sensor that captures 1920 x 1080 video at various frame rates up to 59.94p, including a 24p mode for a more cinematic feel. The integrated Canon 20x HD Optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 26.8 to 576mm and features an 8-bladed iris to render highlights in a more natural manner. Individual gear rings for focus, zoom, and iris on the lens itself provide you a natural way to make manual adjustments.

    The camera records MPEG-2 at frame rates of 23.98/29.97p and 59.94i at up to 50Mbps, with 4:2:2 color sampling, to integrated CF card slots using an MXF wrapper that is 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 59.94P. The XF205 features 4-channels of audio with manual/automatic record levels with two XLR inputs and a built-in 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 WiFi allows you to control the cameras functions from available mobile devices as well as view footage from the camera on the devices. Proxy files can be transferred via WiFi while you are shooting new footage. The camera also incorporates an Ethernet connection, so you can transfer files directly from the camera. An HDMI output provides you with video out.

    1920 x 1080 CMOS Sensor

    The XF205 features a 1/2.84-inch 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 and maintain the 1920 x 1080 resolution so the image isn't degraded by being blown 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 and a minimum object distance of just 23.6 inches (60cm). 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 but maintains a mechanically linked feel during use.

    Image Stabilization

    The XF205 offers optical image stabilization (OIS) 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.

    Advanced Displays

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

    OLED View Screen and EVF

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

    Audio

    The XF205 features an integrated mic and 2 XLR Line/Mic level inputs with +48V phantom power for connecting external mics.

    Outputs

    The camera features an HDMI output, as well as HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and timecode output via BNC connectors on the side of the camera.

    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: allows you to record simultaneously to each of the two CF memory card slots, providing an instant backup for your footage
    • Relay recording: the XF205 automatically switches 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 (5GHz and 2.4GHz) 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 features of the camera, 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

    USB
    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.
    Autofocus
    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.

  • iLED 144 On-Camera Bi-Color LED Light

    The ikan iLED 144 On-Camera Bi-Color LED Light is more than just another small, bright, on-camera source of illumination. Unlike so many lower-end LEDs proliferating nowadays on the web, the iLED 144 combines the quality and features most desired by today's run-and-gun shooters: variable color temperature (3200-5600K) for shooting indoors and out, built-in dimmer for precise illumination levels, AC/DC power, long-lasting onboard battery, battery life indicator, and the ability to securely stack lights together to form a wall of LEDs.

    And that says nothing about the quality of the light, which is produced by 144 LED bulbs that cast a wide, bright beam that--along with its ability to be adjusted in both color and intensity--never gets hot. The included Sony L-type battery assures hours of operation, while a diffusion filter and shoe mount give you even greater control over the light's properties and angle of throw.

  • MKE 600 - Shotgun Microphone

    The MKE 600 from Sennheiser is a shotgun microphone designed for use with a camcorder or video DSLR. Building on the company's extensive expertise in designing shotgun microphones, it is able to take on even the toughest video sound challenges, while still being compact and short relative to previous models. With its high level of directivity, the microphone focuses on the sounds in front of the camera, while attenuating unwanted sound coming from the sides and rear.

    An included foam windshield reduces the effect of wind noise, while a switchable low-cut filter adds additional wind and handling noise attenuation. The MKE 600 can be phantom powered or operated on an AA battery for about 150 hours. An integrated camera shoe and shock mount provides convenient on camera mounting. The rugged and all metal housing means the microphone will function perfectly in outdoor recording situations.

    Flexible use on any camera due to compact form
    Exceptional directivity
    Maximum rejection of side noise
    Switchable low-cut filter
    Phantom or battery powering

  • Airport Commuter Backpack (Black)

    The black Airport Commuter Backpack from Think Tank is larger than Think Tank's Airport Essentials Backpack and is sized to hold a pro size DSLR, 4-6 standard zooms, your iPad and 15" laptop. The extra space this bag provides allows you to take along your 400mm f/2.8 attached to the camera body or your 500mm f/4 unattached. Your gear is nested within the supplied padded dividers in any configuration you choose while your computers are tucked safely away in their own separate, zippered lockable compartment.

    Overall, the pack is designed for maximum efficiency and portability and meets the needs of the pro shooter who needs a quick access pack that both travels well and is secure. The exterior is made from a combination of ballistic nylon and polyurethane for strength and water-resistance while the inside is nylon with padded closed cell foam dividers. For security, the pack comes with a security cable and lock that can be tied to any solid object such as a reception hall column or fence. This allows you to remove gear knowing that the rest of the pack will remain where you leave it. The strong YKK zippers on the pack can also be locked with user-supplied locks for even more peace of mind.

    As part of Think Tank's Airport series, the Airport Commuter makes your traveling life easy and comfortable. There are carry handles on three sides and the adjustable harness comes with beefed up lumbar support and Air Mesh paneling to keep your back cool while on the march. For sheer convenience, the adjustable shoulder straps even have elastic pockets for your iPhone or business cards. The waist belt is removable and can accept Think Tank's optional Pro Speed Belt or Thin Skin Belt that will make portability more comfortable as well as increase your load capacity. Inside, the main flap has see-through laminated mesh pockets for storing everything from memory cards to snacks.

    For marginal weather, the pack comes with an easily deployed rain cover. The tripod mounting system places the feet in a side pocket and the head secured with an included strap. While you're on the move, use the side water bottle pocket for instant refreshment without having to stop, remove the entire pack and retrieve liquid. And, when you're at the airport, the top zippered pocket is the perfect place to store your passport.

    Does not look like a traditional camera backpack. Included security cable and combination lock allows you to lock the laptop case or to immovable objects.
