Canon XF400 reviews

XF400 Camcorder is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a gem! The one I have been waiting for. I had been shooting with the XA30 for the last couple of years and wondered if Canon would ever produce a similar configuration with 4K. The wait is over. The switches and buttons are situated nicely and the touch screen menu is a big plus. Of course it goes without saying that the image quality is stunning. Even when burned to a BluRay disc and played back thru a standard hd television the increased quality is very apparent. If you are interested in shooting scenery and wildlife get the WA-U50 and TL-U50 conversion lenses. They are perfectly suited for the XF400 and there is no loss of quality in 4K. I would also recommend getting a good quality external mike with the 3.5mm or XLR plugs. Give this one a serious look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was waiting for this camcorder from Canon I was so happy to see that Canon built this new camcorder. I pre ordered from B and H and by and large I'm happy with it. Since I have only been using it for 2 weeks this review should be read with that in mind. Pros: - Image quality is excellent. - You have 15X's zoom plus and extra 15X's with the 4K built in. This feature works very well. I'm impressed. - There is a built in 300X's digital zoom that is pretty impressive. Although not as perfect as the optical zoom, I have zoomed in on things close to a mile a way and I couldn't believe how good it looked. - Size of camcorder is so great for all you get. - The menu is set up to make it easier to get around then the old Canon system. Cons: - The touch screen has frozen a few times when I am using the camera. I am trying to get in touch with Canon to tell them. My thought is there will be a firmware update to fix this. - The read speed for 4K is fast. At one point the camcorder said my SD card was not fast enough to keep up. My SD card is a professional grade and pretty fast but I think I'll need the next step up if I plan on shooting a lot in 4K. (It has shot fine in 4K most of the time even with that card) I still have to work with this camcorder to really give it a grade but I am happy with it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many features in a small package The XF400 has many features to like:� small size, lightweight, excellent hand-held stabilization, flexible and professional audio configurations, and good recording time.� So far, I am glad I got it and am enjoying its value.� Recommended!� �� � � �But here are downsides:� 1)� only one lens ring and it is selectable between either focus or zoom.� 2)� Exposure compensation has to be assigned to a programmable button, but it isn't the same as "exposure lock".� Exposure lock is possible, but since the lens is variable� between 2.8 and 4.5 as it zooms, exposure lock is somewhat difficult to control.� An exposure ring would have been a nice addition to the focus ring.� Canon still does not offer 10 bit recording; only 8 bit and it is further restricted to 4-2-0, unless you use an external recorder to get 4-2-2.� Shutter speed is sometimes difficult to determine, unless you are in the TV mode or manual mode instead of P mode or automatic.� In general, it seems to prefer 1/30, which I like for more sensitivity.� Finally, as with any modern camera, the menus take some time to find things, but Canon has done a good job overall with logical layout. � � The big pluses for me were the stabilization, 1" sensor, good sensitivity with less noise and the fantastic zoom ratio!� My plan is to use the 4K camera mostly for 1080p work.� As such, the lens permits extending the optical zoom to a digital zoom as well.� The magnification is excellent, before noise starts to become a factor.� Much much better than I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was so excited abou this camera that I reordered it. Turns out, it’s a mess. All the specs look good, but the image is not very sharp, the bigger sensor is nice but the lens is so slow, there isn’t much more depth of field that the smaller sensors. All that would be fine if the software wasn’t so buggy. The meter try to over expose everything by about a stop and the white balance didn’t work...even when I did it custom with a grey card.� There were a lot of other strange little bugs and a few annoying design choices. For example, what is the point of custom buttons if the options are things you’d never use? Where are the metering tools for setting exposure? Why are the codecs so limited? Also, the low light performance was not nearly as good as I hoped it would be. The footage gets really soft and grainy really easily (though It actually looked nice for being soft and grainy).� I’d probably consider buying it back if they could get the software stuff worked out, but for what they are asking it needs to be better than it is now.
