The Canon XF105, with the LCD display deployed

They might call it a film school project but you know your whole life has been leading up to this. Let the Canon XF105 take you the rest of the way. It was made to pry open your dreams and bring them to the screen. With top-quality adornments like XLR audio inputs and pro-grade video connectivity, this camera won't leave you short, even when the shot is tricky.

Stealthy, like a ninja

It's small and lightweight, so it's versatile to mount. It gets into tight spaces, and with a decent wide angle field of view, it knows how to make the best of them. It shoots rich high-definition video at a variety of frame rates and resolutions, and the industry-standard MPEG-2 codec files import easily into most popular professional editing software packages. You'll have footage that stands up to the manipulation of modern post-production and color correction.

BNC connectors for genlock?TC and SDI

BNC connectors provide genlock in, SDI out and time code in/out

Well-connected and versatile

The XF105 comes with HDMI and component/composite video outputs. Pro-rated audio connections are designed to pair up with the latest in microphone and audio support technology. It can be paired with a second XF105 to create compelling 3-D imagery through its built-in 3D assist feature. Plus, it records infrared video for low or no-light monochrome images. An on-board infrared emitter illuminates the scene in total darkness. And it has 2 BNC terminals that provide SDI, genlock, and SMPTE time code connectivity, for easy integration into professional switched multi-camera environments. The XF105. No compromises in a compact package. Call us when you're famous.
