General Characteristics:

  • Imaging excellence
    The large 1.0-Type CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV7 processor work in harmony to deliver 4K UHD 60P/50P in 4:2:2 10-bit XF-AVC and MP4 as well as FHD 120P HFR for exceptional image quality and flexibility in post-production. An L-Series 15x zoom lens ensures optical excellence, with powerful 5-Axis Image Stabilisation giving razor-sharp results while on the move.
  • Recording flexibility
    XF605 offers broadcast-friendly MXF based XF-AVC and MP4 recording formats. Enhanced recording modes include Slow & Fast motion (up to 120P), Pre-Recording, Frame Recording and Interval Recording. There’s an expanded range of Custom Picture presets and Look File (3D LUT) support, while simultaneous recording to dual SD cards in a variety of formats offers maximum flexibility for your production needs.
  • High sensitivity and dynamic range
    Capture an expanded dynamic range in Canon Log 3 for flexibility in post-production, or shoot directly in broadcast-ready PQ or HLG HDR formats. High Sensitivity Mode, Gain Boost and IR recording ensure that the XF605 captures high-quality images in low light.
  • Pioneering AF technology
    XF605 is the first XF Series camcorder to feature Eye Detection AF and Canon’s EOS iTR AF X Intelligent Tracking technology, which ensures that the focus stays locked on to the subject’s head even when they turn away from the camera. Other focus assist tools include Dual Pixel Focus Guide to aid manual focusing and Tracking AF to smoothly track any subject.
  • Remote control and network functionality
    The XF605 is designed for IP streaming, with wired and wireless remote control capabilities, offering greater control and integration into multi-camera productions. Take control of XF605 in a multi-cam setup alongside Canon PTZ cameras via the RC-IP100 hardware controller, or use Wi-Fi to operate XF605 through the improved Browser Remote for smartphones and tablets. Video output over USB-C enables XF605 to be used as a webcam.
  • Content Transfer Mobile App
    Content Transfer Mobile is an app for iPhone designed to enable the editing of News ML-G2 standard compliant metadata pre/post capture, as well as the ability to import footage from the camera to the phone, including instant transfer to FTP servers.
  • Usability and flexibility
    Enhanced touchscreen functions include playback control and menu navigation for easy adjustment of settings, while 11 user-assignable buttons and independent lens control rings offering control over Focus, Zoom and Iris make for intuitive handling and customisation. The built-in motorised ND system provides the flexibility to control lighting and depth of field in a variety of shooting conditions.
  • Durable and lightweight
    With its notably compact size and body weight of approximately 2,000g, XF605 is the perfect ‘carry-on’ companion. Despite its small dimensions, it’s a highly capable workhorse camcorder, with a durable dust and drip-proof design.
