The Canon XF100 Camcorder is a great choice for professional videographers. This camera comes with a Canon 10x HD video lens that offers a zoom range of 30.4–304mm. The 2.07 MP CMOS sensor provides high color sensitivity and minimal noise. Moreover, the Canon DIGIC DV III image processor improves the shading and tonal gradations. You can pair the camera with other XF100 or XF105 camcorders to shoot a stereoscopic 3D video by using the built-in 3D assist functions. The camera offers full HD video recording at 60 interlaced frames per second with a maximum bitrate of 50 Mbps. With the SuperRange optical image stabilizer, your handheld footage becomes smooth when shooting handheld. You can record a particular shot in fast or slow motion. The EF recording codec used in the camera is compatible with major industry manufactured non-linear editing software.
Optics and Focus
The Canon XF100 camcorder uses a 10× HD zoom lens that provides a 35mm equivalent focal range of 30.4–304mm. You can adjust the lens aperture from f/1.8–2.8 to record bright videos even in dim light. The combination of an external AF sensor and Canon's legendary auto focus system gives quick and precise results no matter in which light conditions you are shooting. The 8-blade iris makes the shallow depth of field more pleasing by creating a rounded bokeh. Also, the additional blades minimize light diffraction. You can extend the zoom range by 1.5×, 3×, and 6× with the built-in digital teleconverter. The natural density filter makes it easy to adjust the exposure by blocking the light from reaching the camera sensor.
Sensor and Screen
This Canon camcorder has a 1/3-inch CMOS Image Sensor that lets it capture vibrant pictures with low noise. You can use the 3.5-inch LCD for composing the shot, which gives a live view of the scene in 920K dot resolution. The focus assist functions on the LCD aid you when tuning the focus for the current scene. You can use the 260K dot electronic viewfinder for the same purpose as the LCD. The brightness, contrast, color, and backlight can be adjusted. Also, the viewfinder angle can be varied up or down at 68°.
Image and Video
The camera can record full HD videos at a maximum frame rate of 60i. The DIGIC DV III image processor improves the shadows and tonal gradation. It also provides the custom picture settings with low power consumption. A particular scene can be recorded in fast or slow motion. The SuperRange optical image stabilizer smoothens the camera shakes when shooting handheld. Other filming functions include interval and infra-red recording.
There are customization options for the camera functions, picture settings, and display. A stereo microphone is integrated into the camera to record audio in 16-bit PCM format at 48kHz. Two XLR audio inputs with +48V phantom power are also provided on the camera. The dual CF card slots offer relay recording, hot swapping, file copy and backup, and pre-recording facilities. You can check the video output in the built-in waveform monitor. The intelligent battery system conveys the remaining time with respect to the power left in the 7.4VDC battery pack.
