They might call it a film school project but you know your whole life has been leading up to this. Let the Canon XF100 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 HDMI 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.

Well-connected and versatile

The XF100 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 XF100 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. The XF100. No compromises in a compact package. Call us when you're famous.
