Shoot like a pro

When you're shooting a wedding, a music video or freelance news footage, you need a camera that gives you options. The Canon XF-200 puts all of the important creative decisions in your hands, where they belong. Start with the lens, a highly versatile 20X HD wide-angle lens that captures superb images with outstanding clarity. The camera also features three separate, banked lens rings that provide independent control of critical focus, zoom and iris/aperture settings. And your video will sound as good as it looks: The XF-200 accommodates two- or four-channel recording of high-quality linear PCM audio sound at 16-bit/48 kHz resolution with individual level controls.

Rock-solid image stabilization

Blurry footage is one possible danger when using a handheld camcorder. The XF-200 employs enhanced five-axis image stabilization that combines optical and electronic correction to help reduce image distortion when you and your camera are in motion. There are also three stabilization modes to choose from. Standard Mode uses lens shift to provide constant compensation throughout the zoom range. Powered Mode helps improve vibration suppression at telephoto focal lengths. Dynamic Mode stabilizes the image when walking and shooting handheld by correcting simultaneously for roll, yaw and pitch.

Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi®

The XF-200 is even easy to use when it's out of your hands. Several network-enabled functions, including browser control, browser preview and FTP transfers, can be implemented via the camcorder's built-in Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi enables remote control and viewing during crane-mounted shoots, and FTP file transfer to Cloud-based servers for convenient back-ups. The camera's Wi-Fi operates at both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz; dual bands help ensure that the camcorder can send signals even in areas with increased interference.
