What is the difference between the XA60 and the XA70?
Asked by: Sajata
Although both cameras are similar in many aspects, such as internal recording, the Canon XA60 Professional UHD 4K Camcorder provides a 1/2.3" CMOS Sensor. In contrast, the Canon XA70 UHD 4K30 Camcorder with Dual-Pixel Autofocus provides a larger 1" CMOS Sensor. The larger sensor offers improved low light and shallow depth of field behind a subject. The Canon XA60 Professional UHD 4K Camcorder also provides a longer optical zoom reach of 20x and does not offer an internal neutral density filter wheel. The Canon XA70 UHD 4K30 Camcorder with Dual-Pixel Autofocus provides a shorter optical zoom reach of 15x and does offer an internal neutral density filter wheel.

Will the XA70 add the ability to use the LCD screen and the viewfinder simultaneously, unlike previous models?
Asked by: Paul
The Canon XA70 UHD 4K30 Camcorder with Dual-Pixel Autofocus (B&H# CAXA70) will not simultaneously display an image in its LCD screen and its viewfinder. However, a new feature on this model (relative to the previous generation of similar Canon camcorders) is its 3.5" ultrabright LCD screen which is now both large enough and bright enough to allow for more than one person to monitor the recording at once.
