Canon has introduced the XF405, a compact professional 4K camcorder that combines UHD and Full HD image clarity with a comprehensive feature set.
Weighing in at just 1150g for the camera only, the XF405 is the smallest and lightest 4K camcorder of its type released by Canon so far, making it ideally suited to discrete news-gathering and documentary shoots. But the XF405’s versatility and detailed UHD image ensures it has a much wider appeal.
At the heart of the highly portable XF405 are a new 1.0-Type CMOS sensor and Canon’s Dual DIGIC DV 6 image processors. This combination delivers high-quality, low-noise 4K/50p images, in addition to slow motion Full HD footage, shooting at 100P. The XF405 also marks the debut of Dual Pixel CMOS AF on a traditional style camcorder, bringing a new level of performance and convenience for self-shooters.
Despite the XF405’s small proportions, it pairs a 4K-optimised 15x zoom lens with a large, newly designed 1.0-Type CMOS sensor that has a resolution of 8.29 effective megapixels. Not only does the larger sensor offer greater control over depth of field, the design and construction of the sensor, combined with Dual DIGIC DV 6 processing gives the XF405 an enhanced low-noise high-sensitivity performance thanks to an improved SNR compared with previous XF camcorders.
The minimum illumination is 1.4 lx with auto slow shutter on and a shutter speed of 1/25sec. The XF405 is capable of recording 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) 50p/25p MP4 internally to dual SD cards at a bit rate of 150Mbps. A future firmware update is planned to enable XF-AVC recording in 4:2:0 8-bit. Additionally, the XF405 offers Full HD 1920 x 1080 recording at 100p for quarter-speed slow motion playback. Relay and simultaneous recording is possible with both cards recording the same format, giving the option to extend recording time or create an in-camera backup.
