Color difference signals: B-Y(Pb) Color difference signals: R-Y(Pr)
These illustrations represent a color image converted to
RGB, after which each component signal is converted
to monochrome. Since B-Y and R-Y signals lack a brightness component and only indicate saturation, images
produced from them look quite unnatural to the human
eye. To avoid confusion, the illustrations are produced by
conversion to monochrome and then, for convenience,
conversion of saturation to brightness.
The XF Series camcorders use Material Exchange Format (MXF). MXF, an internationally standardized
file format, is designed to make the exchange of audio and video materials among NLE (Non-Linear
Editing) systems simple. The MXF format wraps video and audio with metadata in a single file,
maintaining access to critical information throughout the production process.
MPEG-2 4:2:2 50 Mbps XF Codec (XF Series only)
The XF Series camcorders record stunning images using the Canon XF Codec, which captures Full HD
(1920 x 1080) at a maximum constant bit rate of 50 Mbps with 4:2:2 color sampling and industry-standard
MPEG-2 compression. 4:2:2 sampling delivers twice the color resolution of HDV and other 4:2:0
codecs, helping to ensure ultra-fine tonal transitions through post-production processes. This makes
the Canon XF Series camcorders an excellent choice when advanced post-production techniques, such
as compositing, color correction or grading, are required. The 50 Mbps bit rate provides the high
bandwidth needed to deliver outstanding color rendition and image detail. The use of highly reliable
and versatile MPEG-2 compression helps to assure the widest compatibility with existing infrastructure,
including non-linear editing (NLE) systems (Adobe®, Apple®, Avid® and Grass Valley®). XF Series camcorders
can be easily integrated with established workflows, such as those of terrestrial broadcasting, and
cable and satellite television networks.

Rotating Grip (XF205 shown)
Enhanced Autofocus System
The XF Series and XA Series include Canon’s advanced autofocus technology. All the professional
camcorders offer: Instant AF, which uses both the TTL-Video Signal Detection System and the external
sensor; and Normal AF, which uses only the TTL-Video Signal Detection System. Select models offer
Medium AF, which provides smooth focusing in situations where a more gradual AF response is desired.
The XF Series and XA Series feature Face Detection AF, which tracks focus on faces when present.
Users can select the face to be tracked and Face Detection AF has the ability to track even if the
subject face is in profile. If the chosen tracked face is not present in a shot, the subject in the center of
the screen will automatically be brought into focus.
The XF205/XF200, XF105/XF100 and XA Series camcorders also feature Face Only AF, which
automatically keeps the chosen tracked face in focus but, should that face leave the scene, it will reset
focus to manual mode.

MXF and MP4 Dual Recording (XF205 and XF200 only)
The Dual Codec Recording of the XF205 and XF200 camcorders offers format choices that are useful
for various post-capture options. The
DV 4 Image Processor and multiple memory card slots
enable simultaneous recording in high bit-rate MXF format and web-ready MP4 format at a variety of
bit rates to suit the task at hand. MXF mode supports broadcast-ready Full HD 50 Mbps MPEG-2
shooting with 4:2:2 color sampling for high-quality chroma key compositing as well as 1440 x 1080
4:2:0 capture at 35 Mbps for specific applications. MP4 format supports 1080/60p at 35 Mbps for
crystal clear imaging of fast-moving subjects, as well as reduced resolutions down to 640 x 360 at
3 Mbps for instant news reporting even when bandwidth is restricted.
MP4 and AVCHD Progressive Recording (XA25 and XA20 only)
The XA25 and XA20 can record in the MP4 codec, which enables direct video playback on iOS®compatible devices without additional image conversion, as well as direct upload to social networking
sites. The XA25 and XA20 camcorders can also record in AVCHD codec. Support for 1080/60p
recording in AVCHD and MP4 yields twice the amount of information as 60i recording, helping to
reduce diagonal noise. Using a maximum data rate of 35 Mbps for 28 Mbps for AVCHD helps ensure
blur-free, high-quality capture of fast-moving subjects.
Roll axis correction
Twice the color resolution of 4:2:0
The XF205/XF200 and XA25/XA20 camcorders all feature a unique, enhanced Five-Axis Dynamic
Super Range OIS system, which combines optical and electronic correction to reduce image distortion
substantially – even when shooting while walking – for better-looking videos.
Dynamic Mode is specifically designed to stabilize the image when walking and shooting handheld by
correcting simultaneously for roll, yaw and pitch.
8-Blade Iris
Compared to typical 6-blade designs, the 8-blade iris allows for smoother, more pleasing out-of-focus
areas (“bokeh”), such as backgrounds in scenes with shallow depth-of-field. This is a decided
advantage when shooting for artistic effect. The additional blades also reduce diffraction of light
passing through the iris, enabling the use of smaller apertures while maintaining image quality. The
XF205, XF200, XA25 and XA20 feature an 8-blade iris that is circular, which creates a truer aperture
opening, reducing “flaring” of point light sources common to non-circular designs.

XF Series and XA Series camcorders are designed from the ground up to help maximize shooting comfort
and usability. The XF305 and XF300 camcorders feature redesigned layouts making their operation more
intuitive than that of previous Canon camcorder models. New users and users switching from other
products will find the button layout, camcorder menu system and camcorder controls easy to master and
easy to use out of the box. The well-balanced design allows the operator to comfortably control the
camera and easily maintain a steady shot with minimal arm fatigue. The rotating grip on the XF205 and
XF200 camcorders helps ensure a firm grip and flexible operation to accommodate situations which
require high- or low-angle shooting. Each camcorder of the XA Series weighs under two pounds, ideal for
when speed and mobility are necessary and in situations where keeping a low profile is beneficial.

compared to conventional LCD-type displays, including a high contrast ratio, a wide view angle, a
high-speed response, slimmer dimensions and lighter weight.
The XF205/XF200 and XA25/XA20 camcorders also include a high-resolution, 0.45-inch and
0.24-inch color electronic viewfinder, respectively. A resolution of 1.23 megapixels (XF205/XF200) and
1.56-megapixels (XA25/XA20) help ensure critical focus adjustment, with peaking applied if necessary.
A number of peaking and magnification settings available in standby and record modes let the operator
further check and confirm focus parameters. For added comfort, the widescreen EVF can be tilted and
turned upward approximately 68° (XF205/XF200) and 45° (XA25/XA20).
4.0-inch LCD Monitor, High Resolution EVF and Advanced Focusing
Features (XF305 and XF300 only)
The XF305 and XF300 feature a bright and sharp 4.0-inch, 1.23 million-dot LCD monitor with approximately
100% field of view coverage. The LCD flips both ways for viewing from the left or right side of the
camera and has an extra 35 degrees of movement for increased operability, even in tight situations.
The XF305 and XF300 also provide a 0.52-inch, 1.555 million-dot color electronic viewfinder (EVF).
Two peaking modes and a magnification mode are available in standby and record mode, making it
easy for the camera operator to check and confirm critical focus. In addition, Canon’s Edge Monitor
Focus Assist system displays a red and green waveform monitor at the bottom of the LCD monitor and
three red focus check areas across the monitor. The green waveform shows overall focus while the red
waveform shows the status of each focus check box. With this dynamic focus feedback, the user can
quickly tune focus in a specific area, and move between focus points in a scene with a vastly greater
level of accuracy and speed.

Advanced Features
The XF Series and XA Series of professional camcorders feature a number of functions designed
specifically to help streamline complicated video shoots. Display Features such as color peaking,
zebra pattern, color bars and test tone (1 kHz) provide users with an outstanding level of image control,
to help ensure accurate results under variable lighting conditions.
Often only available as expensive external units, both the XF Series and the XA10 incorporate versatile
waveform monitors that provide an objective and detailed analysis of overall image brightness and
RGB components, letting users determine the correct exposure for a shoot with enhanced precision.
The XF305 and XF300 also feature a vectorscope, which analyzes image hue and saturation in real
time, making it possible to achieve accurate white balance and effect color balance changes on the fly.
Customization
With extensive custom settings, the XF Series lets users control and customize virtually every facet of a
video shoot. A large range of image quality, control and display options help to ensure that operation is
intuitive, speedy and comfortable, no matter the chosen style of shooting.
To help users achieve just the right look, Custom Picture Settings allow professional videographers to define
Gamma, Knee, Color Matrix Adjustment, Saturation, Sharpness, Master Black, Skin Tone and much, much more.
To customize operation to match specific tastes and user preferences, many functions can be assigned
to convenient control buttons. And all custom menus and settings can be saved onto removable
media, thereby helping to significantly reduce set-up time while matching multiple cameras to a preset
shooting style, or when moving between different cameras.
“I found that they were both great choices. Neither the Canon XF305
nor the XF105 are heavy or cumbersome. They're small, but not too
small, and have HD lenses. Then there’s the fact that the XF305 and
XF105 have HD-SDI output, genlock input, and SMPTE time code in/out,
which are very handy, since we’re doing not only live game coverage but
also studio productions such as the ‘Red Storm Report’ for a regional
cable network.”
