Canon XF405-E overview

  • 1Description

The Canon XF405-E Camcorder is a compact, ergonomic camera featuring UHD 4K capture, a 1" CMOS sensor, and two XLR audio inputs. This PAL model is designed to work with European broadcast standards, and records at 50p and 25p fps. Continuous HFR (high frame rate) recording is available at 100p fps.

The XF405-E'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), three internal ND filter options, 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 50 fps—captured to dual SD card slots—and outputs via HDMI 2.0 and 3G-SDI ports. On the audio side, the XF405-E features four channels of audio with manual/automatic recording levels, and two XLR inputs. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to both control the camera's functions via browser and to transfer proxy files. Camera control is also available using the included WL-D89 remote. XF-AVC UHD 4K 50p Long GOP recording is scheduled to be available through a firmware update in 2018.

Note: An optional upgrade to enable switching between PAL and NTSC standards is available for purchase through select European Canon service centers.
