The Canon XF200 is a compact, high-performance Professional Camcorder designed to fulfill a broad spectrum of shooting requirements for users working on sports production, ENG, documentaries, commercials and corporate shoots, as well as for independent movie productions, government applications, film schools, colleges, weddings and other event videography. The camcorder features a wide-angle 20x optical zoom lens with three control rings, full image stabilization, infrared capabilities, flexible MXF/MP4 dual recording at various data rates, two/four-channel audio recording, a network interface and dual-band Wi-Fi.
A versatile Canon 20x HD wide-angle video lens captures images with outstanding clarity across a broad 26.8–576mm zoom range. A wide dynamic range gamma setting prevents overexposure even for bright areas of an image and/or with non-uniform colours. An eight-blade circular aperture provides natural and visually pleasing bokeh. Three separate lens rings offer independent control of focus, zoom and iris/aperture settings. A new Five-Axis Dynamic SuperRange OIS System further reduces the effects of camera shake, and a new rotating handgrip enables comfortable camera positioning at all shooting angles from high to low.
Dual-frequency Wi-Fi and a CAT-5 Ethernet connector enable browser preview during shoots, in addition to FTP transfer to external PCs or laptops. The XF200 can also be used with Canon’s new RC-V100 Remote Controller to provide full access to all important user functions, including start/stop, shutter/gain, zoom/focus/iris, white balance, black gamma and more.
