Canon XF100 HD Professional Camcorder
Key Features

  • 4:2:2 Color Sampling
  • 60p/60i, 30p, 24p
Canon's XF100 HD Professional Camcorder is an amazingly compact, fully featured pro video camera that imports nearly all the features and functionality of the 3-chip XF300 into a smaller, single sensor form factor. Taking advantage of the latest HD technology--along with Canon's robust MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec--the XF100 records full HD video to affordable Compact Flash cards, making it as versatile as it is powerful. A newly developed Genuine Canon 10x HD video lens resolves images onto a native 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensor, which are captured in industry-standard MXF file wrappers using your choice of bit rate (up to 50Mbps), resolution, and frame rate. Full image customization and HDMI/Component/Composite outputs are equally on par with the camera's big brother XF300.

I would like to record a long dance recital. How do you think this camera would hold up? Does it allow direct plug into a power outlet for long periods of recording? Does it automatically break up recordings into 10 or 20 minute video "chunks"? Thanks
Asked by: Jose
The MXF video file is broken into small, 2 GB segments. However programs like Premiere Pro will import the entire chain as one continuous clip, and process it accordingly, based on the corresponding clip XML files. Working from a hard drive, you must copy the "Contents" directory from the CF card for the import to work properly. If your video is spread over two or more cards, you must make the "Contents" directory a sub-directory under an arbitrary directory named for that particular card.

question

Can I use SD Cards with the XF 100?
Asked by: Kenneth
We're afraid not. The XF100 records to Compact Flash cards only. The SD card slot is for picture profiles, not recording.

question

I have a canon xf100 that has started saving a filming session on multiple files instead of just one. How can I correct it?
Asked by: Marion R.
The MXF Files Format that the XF100 uses will require you maintain proper file structure when importing the footage in to a Non-Linear Editing System. The best practice is to copy and paste the entire contents of the memory card to your computer and from there import the footage in to your editing system. The files may be broken up on the card, but once you import them in the system they should be joined up. If you require additional assistance feel free to email us at [email protected]
