A professional Canon camcorder has appeared for certification. This unreleased camcorder is likely what I reported on back in July. This camcorder will sit below the Canon XF705 and will be announced later this month.
Back in March, I reported this camera name as the Canon XF505. The naming may have been a guess, but there will be only one camera between the XF405 and XF705 for now. Nokishita is naming it the Canon XF605, which would be a logical name for the new camcorder.
Canon XF605 Specifications
- 4K 1″ Sensor
- 15x zoom
- Dual SD cards
- Full-sized HDMI ports
- Similar codecs as the Canon Cinema EOS C70
- BP-A batteries
If there are no delays, Canon will be addressing the Cinema EOS lineup ahead of NAB in October.
