The XF705 can record 4K UHD video up to 60p, as well as slow motion recording up to 120fps in Full HD.
The XF705 is also the first Canon camcorder to adopt the H.265/HEVC codec, which improves the efficiency of 4K data handling. The XF705 supports the Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and Perceptual Quantization (PQ) HDR formats, which offer a much greater range from black to pure white, and an HLG/PQ shooting assist mode helps users record HDR video using their usual shooting methods. A 15x optical zoom lens incorporates a 5-axis optical image stabilization system and maintains 4K UHD quality throughout the entire zoom range, while the camcorder's Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps facilitate fast and accurate autofocus.
The XF705 includes an HDMI 2.0 terminal with 4K UHD output support, two XLR terminals with independent audio level control and a 12G-SDI output - which features four times the transmission speed of 3G-SDI - helping to facilitate seamless integration into professional 4K UHD workflows. An adjustable 4.0-inch touch panel LCD monitor and a built-in 0.46-inch electronic viewfinder enhance usability, helping you to shoot in a variety of shooting situations. Canon Log 3 provides post-production flexibility while Live IP Streaming capability furthers broadcast possibilities. Designed to meet the needs of professionals, the XF705 offers a wide range of recording opportunities.

Behind the Scenes: Wonderland
Watch a behind the scene feature of the making of ‘Wonderland’ – a short movie featuring the versatile new XF705 Professional Camcorder. The movie showcases many features including HDR recording directly to SD cards, 12G-SDI connection, image stabilization and so much more.
Building on feedback from the hugely popular XF305, XF705 further enhances ergonomics and professional features, including HDR image monitoring using the built-in EVF and vari-angle LCD touchscreen. An improved grip and shoulder pad reduce strain and fatigue, making it an ideal platform for busy professionals on the move.
Cutting edge XF-HEVC recording format and advanced 12G-SDI interface for UHD HDR production.
Canon’s first professional camcorder with the new XF-HEVC file format, enables the recording of internal 4:2:2 10-bit UHD (HLG/PQ) files to SD cards, plus output a UHD signal over a single 12G-SDI interface or ethernet connection.
4K UHD/50P 4:2:2 10-bit support with HEVC
A 1.0-Type CMOS sensor and DIGIC processor produce professional 4K UHD 50P images in 4:2:2 10-bit, utilising Canon’s new and efficient XF-HEVC file format for smaller files that can be recorded direct to SD cards. Multiple recording formats are also supported including XF-AVC and high frame rates up to 120P.
Simple HDR workflow
XF 705 can record internally in two HDR formats, using HLG or PQ and features extensive HDR assist functions that aid the user to control the exposure for HDR shooting. Alternatively, for less time-critical productions, Canon Log3/BT.2020 support enables flexibility in a HDR Post-Production workflow.
Advanced 12G-SDI and IP streaming
With four times the bandwidth of 3G-SDI, the 12G-SDI terminal is capable of sending high quality uncompressed data over a single professional interface, while a built-in Ethernet port enables 4K IP streaming.
Accurate and reliable autofocus
With a 1.0-Type high resolution sensor, focus accuracy is critical. Therefore, the XF705 features Canon’s innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF focusing system that provides features to ensure both autofocus and manual focusing is accurate and reliable, giving users the confidence to open-up the aperture, track moving subjects or focus pull with minimal effort.
Wide angle L-series lens with 15 x zoom
Image capture starts with outstanding optics and Canon’s L-Series lens delivers this in a compact, 3-ring, 15x wide angle zoom that incorporates a 5-axis IS, designed for exceptional 4K UHD capture.
