Canon XA40 Overview

The Canon XA40 Professional UHD 4K Camcorder is a compact, lightweight camera featuring UHD 4K capture, a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor, two XLR audio inputs, and one mini-HDMI output which fits right into the ENG category for documentary or journalism-style productions.

The XA40's optics include an integrated 20x HD optical zoom and an eight-bladed circular iris for more natural highlights. The camera's pro-style features include Hybrid, Normal, Face Only, Manual Focus, Instant, and Canon's Medium autofocus; fast- and slow-motion recording, full manual control, optical and electronic image stabilization, a 3" touchscreen LCD, user-assignable buttons, infrared mode, and a DIG!C DV 6 image processor with high sensitivity and low noise. The XA40 also has display monitoring features such as zebra, color bars, and test tone.

The camera records UHD 4K30 and Full HD 1080p60 captured to dual SD card slots, and outputs to a mini-HDMI port. The dual SD card slots allow for automatic switching from one card to another, as well as simultaneous recording to both. The camera can output up to 1920 x 1080p 10-bit 4:2:2 video at 59.94 fps via its mini-HDMI output. On the audio side, the XA40 features up to four channels of LPCM audio with manual/automatic recording levels, two XLR inputs with phantom power, and a 3.5mm stereo mini input. It features a built-in stereo microphone as well as a headphone jack.

Do I need a HDMI splitter to connect my external monitor and attach my UTap for live streaming while filming in the field? Not sure if that would degrade the signal too much. Maybe I would need a monitor that also had an HDMI feed out and just put it in between? Anyone with experience with this? Thanks!
Asked by: patrick
It is recommended to have an external monitor that has an HDMI output to attach to an external device. An HDMI splitter will work also, but will have a form factor that is not as ideal as just an external monitor with HDMI out.

How does this camera preform in lowlight conditions?
Asked by: Kommer
This camera offers a strong low light performance for a camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. However if low light performance is very important the Canon XA50 with a 1" sensor would be a better choice. https://bhpho.to/2I4whpv
