• “Wide DR” mode enables the user to shoot with an 800% wide dynamic range providing details in mid to high tone.

High quality 4K lens with 15x zoom
• A newly developed 4K lens for 1.0 -Type CMOS sensor, using Super UD elements which minimise chromic aberration.
• The XF405 features an ultra-wide 25.5mm along with high magnification 15x optical zoom in 4K.
• A 30x Advanced Zoom capability in Full HD mode without image deterioration.
• A 9-blade iris diaphragm allows the operator to shoot beautiful and natural ’bokeh’.
• An advanced 5 axis Image Stabilizer helps to reduce image distortion.
• XF405 features three built-in optical density (ND) filters of 1/4, 1/16 and 1/64 (2, 4 and 6 stops).
• 0.8x Wide angle and 1.5x tele-converter for additional flexibility and coverage in 4K and Full HD

Dual Pixel CMOS AF for high-speed, precise autofocus
• The XF405 offers Dual Pixel CMOS AF, fast and accurate autofocusing in area of approx. 80% (vertically) x 80% (horizontally) of the image.
• The XF405 touch screen allows focus control and camera operation for an intuitive operation.
• Various AF options are offered including Face Priority AF and Face Only AF.
• The innovative Dual Pixel Focus Guide supports manual focus shooting by telling the focus position visually.
