What's the Canon XF705 ISO BASE ?
Asked by: Claudio
The XF705 is a ENG Style Camcorder, traditionally these kinds of camcorders do not have ISO as a setting as they are not trying to duplicate Film Speeds. To raise your exposure beyond what your IRIS can offer the setting of Gain will be used, with the optimal setting being 0 db.

Can this camera record internal and external at the same time?
Asked by: Donald Fountain
Yes, the Canon XF705 4K 1" Sensor XF-HEVC H.265 Pro Camcorder can record internally, and if you add an external recorder like the Atomos Shogun 7 BH #ATSG7 you would be able to make internal and external recordings simultaneously.
