Built-in Wi-Fi Technology with
FTP Transfer Capability
®
The XA25 features built-in dual-band (5 GHz/2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi® technology,
enabling FTP file transfer to Cloud-based servers for convenient back ups,
or for situations where a relay station, such as a news truck, is unavailable. The dual bands help ensure that data can be sent even in areas with
increased signal interference. It is also possible to connect to compatible
networks,wireless hotspots and iOS® mobile devices using the free Canon Movie
Uploader app*, or play back video on the camcorders’ memory cards to
Wi-Fi®-enabled TVs and computers.
Wi-Fi® technology also allows remote control of key camcorder controls,
such as recording start/stop and zoom (in three different speeds), exposure
functions (white balance, color temperature, iris, shutter speed, gain, exposure and more) and focus settings via a tablet or smartphone. The ability to
control the camera remotely, such as when using a camera crane, improves
mobility in various shooting environments.
