Product Description

The Canon XF305 Professional Camcorder offers 50Mbps MPEG-2 4:2:2 recording to universally available Compact Flash (CF) cards for unsurpassed image quality and efficient, robust workflow at an affordable price. It is ideally suited to match the requirements of electronic newsgathering (ENG) crews, independent filmmakers, documentary producers, event videographers and military agencies. Utilizing file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF File Wrapper ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. And 4:2:2 color sampling provides ultra-fine transitions in tone and color for maintaining the highest quality image for use in advanced post production. A newly developed Genuine Canon 18x HD L-Series lens along with three Canon native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Image Sensors delivers pristine image quality. Incorporating industry-standard HD-SDI output, genlock input and SMPTE time code input/output terminals makes the Canon XF305 perfectly matched for live application and multi-camera shooting. The XF305 also offers multiple recording bit rates, resolutions and variable frame rates to expand your creative flexibility, and allow you to work in virtually any production environment. And complete customization over the image, display and operation makes the XF305 a camcorder that can be tailored to fit your individual needs.

We currently own three Canon XF305s. After 4 months of constant shooting we've gotten to know this camera capabilities and limitations pretty well.

The positives: The XF305 has a fast zoom and produces a great picture. It's durable. We've put our cameras through heat, cold, rain. You name it and these cameras have been through it. The XF305 offers a number of custom user features that allow the operator to set the camera up for their particular shooting style or application. It records at 50Mbs and delivers 4:2:2 color. Did I mention the 20X zoom that produces a 35mm equivalent 567mm. It's fantastic. Dual CF card recording, SDI out. The camera is broadcast approved by some broadcasters but not all. That brings me to the negatives.

Negatives: The XF305 has a smaller sensor than the Sony PMW300 which makes it less effective in low light. We've struggled with low light issues on more than one occasion. The lens, while great, is fixed so you are limited. The camera can lose focus depending on movement and light levels.

Our application may be different than yours. We've predominantly used the XF305 for sporting events and a few commercials. If you're not in a well lit stadium then you'll have some issues. If you're in a well lit stadium you'll love the this camera because of the lens.

Overall it's a great camera and since the new XF205s have been released the price continues to drop.

This canon is a solid pro camera, but it is lacking in some much needed features at its core.
It should have a larger sensor to deal with lo light. The Sony's by comparison have larger sensors, and thus are better suited for lower light.
For studio work or bright outdoor use this canon will fill the bill with no problems.

XF305 Professional Camcorder is Canon's entry into professional solid state video cameras. Following on the heels of its XH line of tape-based camcorders, the XF305 takes canons latest HD technology--along with Canon's newly developed MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec--to record Full HD video to Compact Flash cards. I know I probably don't need to mention this but get high speed CF cards.
