Canon XF100


LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., August 31, 2010 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announces the new Canon XF105 and XF100 Professional Camcorders for mobile HD video capture in a compact form factor. Canon’s smallest professional camcorders, the new XF105 and XF100 utilize the same Canon XF Codec featured in the Canon XF305 and XF300, introduced earlier this year. The Canon XF Codec is an MPEG-2 4:2:2 50Mbps codec used for exceptional high-definition image quality, full non-linear editing (NLE) systems compatibility and efficient, robust workflow. These camcorders include in-camera features enabling the easy set-up and capture of high-definition 3-D video when two XF105 or XF100 camcorders are paired, as well as Canon’s built-in infrared low-light feature enabling the capture of HD video in complete darkness. Both models record to Compact Flash (CF) cards and feature hot-swappable card slots for maximum performance. Differentiating the two models are industry-standard HD-SDI output and genlock in/SMPTE time code (in/out) terminals available on the Canon XF105. The XF105 and XF100 camcorders are ideal for Electronic News Gathering, documentary and independent filmmaking and event videography.

Bah. One-chip?

The infrared mode sounds very appealing, though.

To me, the problem is not that it only has one chip, but that it is a pretty small chip

And what I like here is the codec, let's see if that one finds its way into the DSLR side of things...

If canon used this codec on the new SLR's it would be a whole different ballgame......

PLEASE CANON PLEASE!

Another epic fail for ergonomics. Canon just doesn't get it! But they will sell many to the clueless - because the don't get either. Holding a motion camera out in-front of you is so 1950s.
