Review: Canon XF405 by cinema5D
« on: October 26, 2017, 09:30:13 AM »
Johnnie over at cinema5D has completed his review of the brand new XF405, the version he reviewed is considered “pre-production”.

From cinema5D:

The Canon XF405 camera has a compact and portable design. The absence of a C-LOG picture profile, ISO settings (dB marking only), and “creative” aspect ratio markers can indicate that this camera was designed to catch the attention of news crews on a budget or independent documentary filmmakers. This camera doesn’t pretend to be something that it is not, and that’s perfectly fine! With proven autofocus capabilities, ease of use, a good lens and those pleasant Canon skin tones, the XF405/XF400/LEGRIA GX10 might appeal to those who are on the run (&gun) but looking for the extra touch when attempting to harness the aid of a large-sensor aesthetic look into their creative productions.

You can preorder the Canon XF405 at B&H Photo and it should begin shipping sometime in November.

I was looking forward to the XF405 announcement but this was not what I was hoping for. Seems less on a XF300/305 upgrade and more of a new camera or an upgrade of a different camera.

I still think the XF300/305 is an exceptional camera and deal right now, but would have loved Canon to make it lighter and improve on some specs.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.
