  • Detailed Features

    Canon HD Video Lens

    A fast, wide-angle, Canon HD Video lens (30.4mm, F1.8) brings professional image quality to a compact camcorder. Features a shockless, variable speed 10x optical zoom and 8-blade iris for more attractive bokeh effect.

    1/3 type HD CMOS Pro sensor

    An HD CMOS Pro sensor – originally designed and manufactured by Canon for its professional camcorders - captures Full HD at native 1920x1080 resolution. With a pixel size 2.6x bigger than conventional CMOS sensors, it delivers a wider dynamic range and higher sensitivity.

    Professional audio

    Professional audio options include 2x XLR inputs, a 3.5mm microphone input jack and a built-in, low-noise microphone. Audio is recorded in 2ch Dolby Digital format using any combination of inputs.

    64GB memory plus 2x SDXC slots

    The XA10 records Full HD AVCHD video at up to 24Mbps to 64GB of built-in flash memory. Relay Recording across 2x SDXC memory card slots allows for continuous filming. Double slot recording allows the same footage to be stored simultaneously on two cards.

    Infrared shooting mode

    The XA10 offers infrared (IR) recording in Full HD resolution, for night or low light shooting. Green and white colour options are available to suit the style of your project. Unique Canon lens coatings and a built-in diffuser ensure clear, sharp pictures throughout the frame. An IR lamp is built into the camcorder handle.
