Canon XA11 overview

  • 1Description

The Canon XA11 Full HD Camcorder is a compact run-and-gun camera that is suitable for ENG, event coverage, and independent and documentary filmmaking. The camera features a 1/2.84", 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensor that captures 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.

The final piece in the image chain is Canon's Digic DV 4 image processor. This high-speed image-processing engine powers Canon's Dynamic IS (Image Stabilization) mode reducing image distortion over traditional up-down, left-right image stabilization by adding correction for camera roll in three axes. The power of the Digic DV 4 allows the camera to simultaneously encode your video to two different codecs and bit rates, allowing you to have web-ready versions of your master footage available as soon as you stop recording.

The XA11 features both a 3.5" OLED touch panel view screen with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, and a color electronic viewfinder with 1,560,000 dots of resolution. The camera features full manual control and auto modes for exposure, focus, white balance, gain, and shutter speed. The camera provides professional features such as a pre-record buffer, peaking, zebra bars, color bars, and reference tone. The zoom speed is adjustable with variable, constant (with 16 different speed levels), fast, normal, and slow settings. The camera features a detachable top handle with zoom toggle, record start/stop, IR emitter, tally light, accessory shoe, external mic holder, two XLR connectors with phantom power, and manual audio level controls. The XA11 includes a built-in headphone jack and a Mini HDMI connector, and outputs composite video and audio via a 3.5mm mini-jack.

Two built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slots allow you to record video to available media cards in both slots at the same time. This allows you to create an instant backup copy for archiving and data protection. You can also capture high-resolution AVCHD or MP4 video files on one card while creating a lower data rate MP4 more suitable for the web on the other card. When using two media cards and the camera is in Relay mode, there is no need to stop shooting to swap out a full media card; when one card becomes full, recording seamlessly switches to the other card.

Canon Native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Sensor
The XA11 features a 1/2.84-inch HD CMOS Pro sensor with 2.91MP. The large size of the individual pixels enable a minimum subject illumination of 1.0 lux for shooting in low-light conditions.
20x Optical Zoom Lens
The Canon 20x HD zoom lens provides a zoom range with a 35mm equivalent of 26.8 to 576mm, and features an improved circular iris design providing a more natural look with out-of-focus areas that are smoother and more appealing. Zoom speed can be set to variable, constant (with 16 levels), fast, normal, or slow.
Digic DV 4 Image Processor
The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor works in concert with the sensor to provide images with low noise and rich color depth. The processing power of the Digic DV 4 enables the simultaneous encoding of video to different codecs and bit rates for recording to two separate SD cards at the same time.
Auto Focus
Canon Auto Focus (AF) features include natural-looking medium speed, instant, and face detection AF, which can significantly reduce the effort required when shooters need to keep a particular face in focus in a jostling crowd or similar situation.
Advanced Displays
  • Zebra bars selectable between 70 and 100% are available to help you judge exposure.
  • The XA11 features peaking and 2x image magnification as focus aids.
  • The camera can display and record color bars or color bars with reference tone. The color bars comply with the SMPTE standards. Reference tone levels can be set at -12, -18, or -20 dB.
3" OLED Touch Panel View Screen and EVF
The 3", 1,230,000-dot touch panel view screen enables rapidly moving through and selecting menu settings. The color EVF is 0.24" with 1,560,000 dots of resolution, and tilts up to 45° to accommodate different shooting positions.
Manual Camera Control
  • The XA11 features selectable manual/automatic control on the camera functions, allowing you to choose the best settings for the situation. Functions include: Exposure, Shutter Speed, Iris, Gain, Exposure Lock, AGC Limit.
  • White Balance features six presets (Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten, Fluorescent H, and Fluorescent), as well as two manual white balance settings. Additionally, when specific adjustment of the color temperature is desired, the color temperature may be adjusted in 100K increments from 2000 to 15,000K.
  • The camera's body features five user assignable buttons so you can customize the camera to access features without having to enter the menu system.
Audio
The XA11 features an integrated microphone, and the detachable handle houses two XLR Line/Mic level inputs with +48V phantom power for connecting external mics. The detachable handle also houses the manual audio level controls. A built-in 3.5mm headphone jack with 16 volume settings provides for accurate audio monitoring.
Outputs
The XA11 features an AV mini terminal for composite video (and audio) via a four-pole 3.5mm mini-jack, as well as a Mini HDMI port which delivers video and audio, allowing you the option of superimposing timecode over your video.
Media Card Slots
Two SD/SDHC/SDXC card slots are built into the camera, allowing for 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 SD memory card slots, providing an instant backup for your footage.
  • Relay recording: The XA11 automatically switches video recording from one memory card to the other when the first memory card becomes full.
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 detachable top handle provides an IR source, and the built-in IR diffuser helps prevent IR hot spots on the subject. In IR mode, you can select from the traditional green-hued IR image or the default setting, which produces a black and white image.
Wired Connectivity
  • USB: An integrated Hi-Speed USB (mini-B) port allows you to download footage from the memory cards. This port is for output only.
  • Remote control port: The camera features a built-in 2.5mm stereo mini-jack for LANC control.
Detachable Top Handle
The detachable top handle contains the audio controls and external XLR audio inputs, as well as a tally light, the infrared emitter, and an accessory shoe. You can remove the top handle from the camera to create an even smaller shooting package.
Additional Features
  • Photo capture: The XA11 offers the ability to capture 1920 x 1080 still images. Photos may be captured to an SD memory card during recording, as well as "frame-grabbed" during playback.
  • Pre-record: The XA11 continuously buffers approximately three seconds of video in memory. When you begin recording, the contents of the buffer memory are added allowing you to capture footage before you press record.
  • Intelligent battery system: The XA11 is compatible with Canon's Intelligent lithium-ion batteries, which communicate remaining running time (down to the minute) to the user.
  • Language support: The XA11 supports 27 languages: Czech, Danish, German, Greek, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Hungarian, Malay, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Finnish, Swedish, Turkish, Russian, Ukrainian, Arabic, Farsi, Thai, Chinese (simplified characters), Chinese (traditional characters), Korean, and Japanese.

    Canon XA11 reviews

    XA11 Compact Full HD Camcorder with HDMI and Composite Output is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camcorders are still alive Purchased this camera when it came out and couldn't be any happier with my purchase.� This camera has so many options that not too long was only available in high end cameras. Great image, easy to use, loaded with features.� The one thing i have to complain about it is the microphone holder, when i have the dead cat on my Rode NTG3, it shows in picture, the holder is too low I had get a shock mount and mount it to the hot shoe, other than that i love this camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turned out to be a good camera This was not my first choice. I wanted the XA30. But went I went online to buy it, it had been discontinued. So I got the XA11 instead. I'm happy with it. Great image quality. Easy to get to know and use. One quirk: the microphone holder is flimsy. It needs a screw to better secure it to the handle (see photo). It has a screw on top to secure the actual microphone holder when closed, but it really needs another one (see directly above shoe).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zoom is defective The XA11 apparently replaced the XA30. My XA30, a little over a year old, is worthless! It will just start ZOOMING all by itself. Over 25 years in the business, I use many different cameras/manufacturers and do not use "this" one all that often which is what makes it even more shocking. It has been meticulously cared for. Started searching and found that I am not alone and this is a common problem. I'm sure Canon just changed the model # to cover up this issue. I won't look to Canon again. Lucky you.....You've been warned.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought for ENG. Disappointed. As a big fan of Canon images I bought this camcorder for run and gun ENG work, press conferences and speeches. I like1080 60p for posting on the internet. I was also attracted by the 20x optical zoom. My first problem is that you cannot change the battery unless you take the camera off the tripod and remove the plate. Ridiculous. About every 16 minutes (Canon says 4 GB via YouTube) the camera stops recording and starts a new clip. Ugh! WHY? This creates extra work in multicam work and an audible tick where the clip divides, especially if the speaker is in the middle of a word when the new clip starts. And is it possible that audio level controls be designed for a man’s finger rather than a baby’s finger? I had used the 10 and I loved it. The smaller screen on the XA11 is another disappointment. Of course, I knew about the size before I bought. The audio level meter on the 10 was so much better, bigger and detailed. I hope its not too late to return. I should’ve recognized the red flag when Canon did not offer a warranty on this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is my first venture into pro video. Its so much better than the big box offerings. I recorded 1 hour(+/-) long amateur hockey games and got files about 5-6GB with factory defaults. Cant get more technical since Im a novice.
