Canon MPEG-2 4:2:2 Codec 50Mbps

Equipped with MPEG-2 compression, XF 105 uses Canon’s XF Codec ensuring the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. XF 105 comes with Full HD 1920 x 1080 Resolution, 50Mbps bit rate and 4:2:2 colour sampling. 4:2:2 provides Ultra-fine transitions in tone, colour and maintains the highest quality image. Colour sampling provides twice the colour resolution of HDV and other Codecs using 4:2:0 colour sampling. The Codec‘s 50Mbps bit rate provides bandwidth needed to capture the XF 105 superior resolution and colour in spectacular detail.

3D shooting capable

XF 105 has the ability to be paired with another XF 105 camcorder unit to provide true stereoscopic 3D recording. XF 105 has several features to assist with 3D production, including OIS Lens Shift to aid in optically aligning the two XF 105 cameras and a Focal length Guide for displaying the zoom position of each camera in relation to each other and also to calibrate the zoom distance. XF 105 also features a 3D capable GENLOCK for syncing the camcorders hence providing an alternative to large 3D rigs which enables one to work more quickly and efficiently.

Infrared shooting

The XF 105 provides an infrared shooting mode for shooting in conditions with little to zero ambient light. With Infrared Mode ‘on’ the infrared cut-off filter is retracted from the optical path and infrared light is allowed to pass through to the sensor. XF 105 also features an infrared emitter with a diffuser to shoot pleasing infrared imagery even in complete darkness.
