Overview

The Canon XA50 4K UHD Pro Camcorder offers an outstanding 4K UHD image quality, as well as  video features & functions, while sporting a compact and portable design. This camcorder is ideally suited for on-the-go Electronic News Gathering (ENG), and documentary production. Its 1.0" 4K UHD CMOS image sensor and DiG!C DV 6 Image Processor allow the XA50 to record in XF-AVC or MP4 formats to dual SD card slots. The camcorder is capable of capturing 4K UHD video at 30p, as well as slow motion recording up to 60fps in Full HD (30 fps in 4K UHD). Its 15x optical zoom lens maintains 4K UHD quality throughout the zoom range, while its Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps create fast & accurate autofocus. The camcorder features an HDMI 2.0 terminal with 4K UHD output support, & two XLR terminals with individual audio level control. The XA50's adjustable 3.0" touch panel LCD monitor & built-in 0.24-inch electronic viewfinder enhance usability. The detachable handle helps the camcorder to operate in a variety of shooting situations. The XA50 is designed to meet the needs of professionals, and offers a wide range of recording possibilities.

Optics & Focus:
The Canon XA50 4K UHD Pro Camcorder features a Genuine Canon15x Optical 4K UHD Zoom Lens that maintains 4K UHD quality throughout the entire zoom range, & offers a focal length range of 25.5 to 382.5mm (35mm film equivalent). When shooting in Full HD, you can reach up to 30x Advanced Zoom, which utilizes the XA50 camcorder's full 4K UHD sensor to extend the zoom range while maintaining image quality. The lens also features a 9-blade iris, which produces an artistic & beautiful out-of-focus, or "bokeh", effect. The 9 blades allow for natural circular blurring in out-of-focus areas, while also using an odd number of blades to help reduce flaring. The lens is designed with a 3-density ND filter, which allows the user to choose from three densities (ND 1/4, ND 1/16 and ND 1/64), or turn the feature off.  Also featured is the "Wide Attachment", which offers a 0.8x wider angle of view that allows you to capture more of a scene. This feature is helpful when indoors or in tight spaces, to lend better perspective to your footage. The provided Tele Converter extends a 1.5x longer telephoto range for the XA50 camcorder's fixed lens, allowing distant subjects to be recorded with brilliant clarity.

Sensor & Screen:
The XA50 Professional Camcorder
features a Canon 1.0" 4K UHD CMOS image sensor, which is capable of 4K UHD video recording at 60p, & slow motion recording up to 60fps in Full HD (30 fps in 4K UHD), making the XA50 a strong contender for professional productions, creative fields & more.
 
The camcorder features a 3.0" Touch Panel LCD, as well as a newly designed 0.24" Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). The Touch Panel LCD & EVF provide clarity of desired features, along with a number of menu options for controlling your settings. The Touch Panel LCD works with Canon's AF technologies for easy monitoring & one-finger tap-focusing. The EVF offers 45 degrees of tilt for more comfort of operation in a number of positions.

Image & Video:
The XA50 Camcorder
incorporates Canon's DiG!C DV 6 Image Processor, which provides high image quality, advanced performance, & convenient operation. This processor provides the power & speed that allows features such as 4K UHD video acquisition, image stabilization, slow & fast motion recording to function. The camcorder's "Over Sampling HD Processing" feature allows for Full HD recording through the use of its 4K CMOS Sensor.

The XA50 camcorder also is designed with a 5-axis Optical Image Stabilization (IS) system. Standard, Dynamic & Powered are the three Image Stabilization modes that are featured in the XA50. In "Standard IS" mode, the stabilizing angle is made constant & separatte of the zoom magnification. In "Dynamic IS" mode, the stabilizing range is extended at the wide end of the focal length, allowing for stabilization when shooting while walking. "Powered IS" mode helps facilitate stabilization in the low frequency range at the tele end, & should be used solely for fixed-point shooting.

The XA50 Professional Camcorder can record to dual SD card slots in 4K UHD & Full HD resolutions. Multiple recording modes, resolutions and frame rates make the camcorder creatively flexible & adaptable to a wide range of fields from broadcasting to cinema. The camcorder's dual SD card slots allow for simultaneous or Relay Recording. Simultaneous recording allows you to record on both SD cards at the same time, so that you have a backup copy. Relay recording allows uninterrupted recording from one SD card to the next, once the first one is full.

Also supported is slow and fast motion recording. You can record in a different frame rate from playback for slow & fast motion effects. Slow motion recording of up to 60 fps (x0.4) in Full HD (30 fps in 4K UHD) is supported, allowing you to create an emotionally moving video.
