On-Screen Display (OSD) “Time Stamp” Recording

New to XA-Series cameras, the OSD recording embeds date, time, timecode and other data into your original camera files effectively “time stamping” the information into each frame of video, a requirement for legal and law enforcement videographers.

UVC Livestreaming

Stream HD video directly from the camera via UVC1 to a PC or Mac computer.

4K 15x optical zoom lens

The Canon lens covers a 25.5 – 382mm (35mm equivalent) range. Digital zoom boosts the 20x optical zoom to 600x magnification. To minimize camera shake, the camera provides Canon’s Dynamic IS 5-axis image stabilization.

Fast, precise focusing with face detection

Adjustable focusing speeds and advanced Dual Pixel CMOS AF give fast and precise focusing. Use the ultra-bright 3.5-inch LCD display to set focus by touching the AF point required. Face Detection AF and Face Tracking are available while Manual Focus is set via the focus/zoom ring.

XF-AVC and MP4 for flexible recording

Choose from XF-AVC or MP4 recording formats. Record XF-AVC 4K UHD 160Mbps at 30P/24P and Full HD 45Mbps at 60P/60i/30P/24P. For smaller files, record MP4 in 4K 150Mbps at 30P/24P and Full HD 35Mbps or 17Mbps at 60P/30/24P.
