The Canon XF400 Camcorder is a compact, ergonomic camera featuring UHD 4K capture, a 1" CMOS sensor, IP streaming, and two XLR audio inputs. The XF400's optics include an integrated 15x HD optical zoom with up to 30x Advanced Zoom, a nine-bladed iris for more natural highlights, and five-axis optical image stabilization. Pro-style features include Dual-Pixel Autofocus (DPAF), and dual DIGIC DV 6 image processors with high sensitivity and low noise, supporting Wide DR Gamma.
Can the SDI port output 1080p59.94 while the recording mode is set to 1080p29.97? The other Canon models I use output 1080p59.94 even while recording 1080p29.97, so my live video workflow is based around 1080p59.94 and I don't want to have to use a scaler just to use this camera.
Asked by: Seth
The format needs to be the same for recording and output.

what is the maximum magnification of the lens? Not the 15X zoom, but the macro rating 1:1, 1:2 etc. Thanks.
Asked by: Russell
That is not something listed by Canon. In general camcorders like this will not have such a rating.

is there a good reason to choose the XF 400 over the XA 50? 60 fps 4k isn't a big deal for a local TV
Asked by: Jamey
The larger size along with it having 4K 60 are the big draws.

I love the sound of this camera but need a battery that can last 3 hours. Do you have any recommendations? Or does Canon make a camcorder that can support that?
Asked by: Elizabeth
For situations where there is no power access I use the lead-acid batteries like the ones in a ups and then hook up an inverter to produce AC. Then i can plug the camera power into the inverter output. I can even have multiple batteries charging away from the site or from my car so I can swap when the power gets low. Some UPS's, like some APC UPS's also have a mode that you can use them as a power source. The warning beeping can be turned off on some, or if you are a techie you can can open the UPS and cut the speaker wire.

What method is best for getting video files into my win10 for editing? USB? Ethernet? And what Utility - Data Import Utility?
Asked by: Terry
Since your camera has SD card slots, you will take the SD cards out of the camera and insert them into a SD card reader that is plugged into your computer. Then you will drag the files from the card onto either an external hard drive that you might be using, or your computer. You don't have to use a software, you can just move the files in the Windows File Explorer.
