The Canon XF405 Camcorder is a compact, ergonomic camera featuring UHD 4K capture, a 1" CMOS sensor, and two XLR audio inputs. The XF405'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.

The camera records Full HD 1080p and UHD 4K up to 60 fps—captured to dual SD card slots—and outputs via HDMI 2.0 and 3G-SDI ports. On the audio side, the XF405 features four channels of audio with manual/automatic recording levels, and two XLR inputs. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to control the camera's functions via browser and transfer proxy files. Camera control is also available using the included WL-D89 remote. XF-AVC UHD 4K 60p Long GOP recording is scheduled to be available through a firmware update in 2018.

Canon XF405 reviews

XF405 Camcorder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG! What a Camera I work as Breaking News Stringer and have used the XA-10, then the XA-30 which were all great cameras. I got my XF-405 yesterday, set it up and had my first night time story. This camera is amazing. 1st, while heavier than the XA-30, it just feels better while hand-holding. The low-light capabilities are amazing, the image and lack of noise�blew me away. I only had to use my video light when doing the interview with the Police officer. I am totally blown away with this camera. You did good Canon, you did GOOD!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good run and gun camera I purchased this to compliment my C200 and use it primarily in manual mode. The videos are clean and sharp and the camera is easy to use. The custom button next to the record button is too close and too small to make it effective for me. I use the viewfinder a lot and this one is fair at best since it can't be adjusted.� It always seems to be too dark when filming outdoors. Battery life could also be better. Since it does not have broadcast specs I gave it 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A step up from a DSLR to Pro Video This is my first pro video camcorder.� I'm not going thru the functions here, since there are a bunch on you tube.� What i'm going to do is give you my impressions of this. � My previous camera that i still use is a Canon 7dmkii.� The fact that i can change lenses and put it in a follow focus cage was wonderful and worked with great results.� The XF405 touch screen focus can give you much the same type of results.� Yes it does take abit to get use to and btw use a tripod.� Fumbling with the buttons and pushing the screens while hand holding.....well doesn't make for a good video.� But firmly mounted the touch focus works wonderfully.� �� Another aspect that's great is that i'm now recording� directly to the camera in 4 channels as opposed to using a digital recorder.� I normally used a Tascam 60 and it works great.� It had 2 xlr and a stereo mini plug.� The XF405 has the same setup.� Two xlr's in the handle, and a stereo mini on the body of the handle.� The only� issue im still working is with the 3 and 4 channel stereo plugs.� The level controls for these two channels are buried in menus and tough to find from the get go.� Channel one and two are great with xlr plugs on the handle and all your level controls on the handle. �� Video quality is fantastic in 4K.� it can be enhanced by shooting in Wide Dynamic Range.� Again buried in the menus, but once found it really� brings out the details.� Another things that i never had on a dslr is built in ND filters.� Yes i had them but i had to screw on an adapter and use drop in filters.� Now i just push a button and it scrolls thru different levels.� This is really for bright daylight and a way to knock down the light so you don't blow out your highlights.� You really see it in the sky and clouds.� Makes shooting on a cloudy day a possibility with creativity.� (Side point is this is done in Manual mode and not programed automatic.) �� I am still on a learning curve with this camera but as i keep watching videos on how it functions, it fast becoming my favorite. � One other note that i see folks whining about is the lack of 10 bit color depth for broadcast quality.� Well it does out put 4:2:2 10 bit to an external recorder.� So if you need it you have that opetion, but only on the 405 not the 400 model.� Oh and the last point, i looked at the other options for 4k recording and all other camom cameras use CFast cards.� Id spend about $1000 to get an hour or more recording time.� the XC15 and C200 both use these platforms.� The XF405 write to SD cards.� It holds two cards that can record both at the same time for a backup.� I shot my first gig last week and used both cards.� Its a good feeling to know that you have two recordings, just for safety. �� Am i happy with this XF405...ABSOLUTELY.
