Canon XF200 - a compact, fully-featured camcorder that lets you capture and share amazing images

The Canon XF200 is a member of the the XF pro camcorder range, which also includes the broadcast workhorse XF305 and the more compact and smallest of the three XF105. The Canon XF205 offerings include a high-end image quality, easy integration and dual-format recording, a 20x zoom lens, a rotating grip to assist with various shooting scenarios. The XF205 is built for Full HD content creation with the documentary, wedding and event filmmaker in mind.

Feature-rich yet compact, it's a powerful professional camera that records onto afforadable Compact Flash cards and is equiped with a broadcast level codec with a bitrate of 50Mb/s in a 4:2:2 colour space.

  • HD CMOS Pro sensor provides outstanding image quality, even in low light
  • Compact, lightweight design, with 3-ring lens operation and rotatable grip
  • OLED display and 1.23m dot viewfinder enable precise monitoring
  • Dual format recording: broadcast standard 50Mbps MPEG2 codec, plus MP4 in HD or SD
  • Genlock, Timecode, and 3G-SDI terminals for multi-cam integration

  • 4 channel audio recording; 2 XLR inputs
  • Infrared shooting mode, with enhanced IR lamp
Advanced Canon imaging system

The XF200 features an advanced camera system capable of providing outstanding images and the responsiveness to deal with all kinds of shooting situations. A 26.8mm wide-angle lens with 20x zoom gets you closer to the action, while Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation compensates for shake in 5 directions to provide ultra-steady images.

A Canon HD CMOS Pro sensor combines with the DIGIC DV 4 processor to deliver stunning picture quality – even in low light – as well as outstanding dynamic range and realistic colour reproduction. Wide DR Gamma helps to reduce over-exposure, whilst an infrared shooting mode means the camera can easily be used at night – ideal for the wildlife videographer.

Picture quality is complemented by advanced audio functions, with 4-channel Linear PCM audio recording supported.

Comfort and precise control

Compact in size, unobtrusive and a pleasure to use thanks to its 3-lens ring operation and rotatable grip, the XF200 also provides impressively high quality monitoring options. An OLED screen with a 1.23m dot resolution is easy to view, even in bright sunlight, offering better response times, definition, contrast and colour reproduction than LCD equivalents. A sizeable 1.14cm (0.45”) 1.23m dot EVF can tilt up to 68° to accommodate different shooting pos
