Canon XF705 4K HDR Camcorder

Code: CAN/XF705

The XF705 is Canon's first professional camcorder with the new XF-HEVC file format.

It's a professional handheld 4K UHD camcorder with 10-bit 4:2:2 UHD (HLG/PQ) 4K internal recording XF-HEVC files to dual SD cards, plus UHD signal output over a single 12G-SDI interface or ethernet connection.


4K UHD/50P 4:2:2 10-bit support with HEVC

A 1.0-Type CMOS sensor and DIGIC processor produce professional 4K UHD 50P images in 4:2:2 10-bit, utilising Canon’s new and efficient XF-HEVC file format for smaller files that can be recorded direct to SD cards. Multiple recording formats are also supported including XF-AVC and high frame rates up to 120P.

Simple HDR workflow

XF 705 can record internally in two HDR formats, using HLG or PQ and features extensive HDR assist functions that aid the user to control the exposure for HDR shooting. Alternatively, for less time-critical productions, Canon Log3/BT.2020 support enables flexibility in a HDR Post-Production workflow.

Advanced 12G-SDI and IP streaming

With four times the bandwidth of 3G-SDI, the 12G-SDI terminal is capable of sending high quality uncompressed data over a single professional interface, while a built-in Ethernet port enables 4K IP streaming.

Accurate and reliable autofocus

With a 1.0-Type high resolution sensor, focus accuracy is critical. Therefore, the XF705 features Canon’s innovative Dual Pixel CMOS AF focusing system that provides features to ensure both autofocus and manual focusing is accurate and reliable, giving users the confidence to open-up the aperture, track moving subjects or focus pull with minimal effort.

Wide angle L-series lens with 15 x zoom

Image capture starts with outstanding optics and Canon’s L-Series lens delivers this in a compact, 3-ring, 15x wide angle zoom that incorporates a 5-axis IS, designed for exceptional 4K UHD capture.

Professional Features

Building on feedback from the hugely popular XF305, XF705 further enhances ergonomics and professional features, including HDR image monitoring using the built-in EVF and vari-angle LCD touchscreen. An improved grip and shoulder pad reduce strain and fatigue, making it an ideal platform for busy professionals on the move.

4-inch vari-angle touchscreen

With a large, high-resolution 1.23M dot, high luminance touchscreen LCD, XF705 is able to support accurate focusing, while the vari-angle screen is invaluable for easy viewing in multiple positions.

Comfortable shoulder mount and angled grip

A new removable shoulder pad and a more naturally positioned/angled hand grip, with a broadcast style zoom rocker, helps improve stability and reduces fatigue over longer shoots.

Wide DR gamma

The Wide DR gamma smoothly compresses highlight areas to offer a wide dynamic range. This enables beautiful skin tone and seamless tone gradations.

4 Channel digital audio

XF705 supports 2x switchable AES/EBU, analogue XLR interfaces and 4ch Audio, offering professional audio capabilities.
