The Canon XF405 is a compact, ergonomic, and feature-rich camcorder designed for professional workflow. Key features include:
8.29MP 1-inch CMOS sensor; dual DIGIC DV 6 processors
15x optical zoom lens w/ 5-axis image stabilization
Dual-pixel CMOS autofocus system
Mini HDMI 2.0 & 3G-SDI Output
8.29MP 1-Inch CMOS Sensor and Dual DIGIC DV 6 Processors. The Canon XF405’s 8.29MP 1-inch CMOS sensor works in tandem with its dual DIGIC DV 6 image processors to capture UHD 4K footage at 60p, to produce Full HD fast- and slow-motion footage up to 120 fps, and to give you great image quality, even in low light. Its nine-blade aperture further enhances image quality by producing pleasing bokeh.
Canon 15x Zoom Lens. The integrated 15x optical zoom lens has a 35mm-equivalent zoom range of 25.5 to 382.5mm, and maintains UHD 4K quality throughout that zoom range.
Five-Axis Image Stabilization. The XF405 offers three image-stabilization modes. Standard mode gives you a constant stabilizing angle that’s independent of the zoom magnification. Dynamic mode is ideal for shooting while walking, as it extends the stabilizing range at the wide end of the focal length. Finally, Powered mode stabilizes the tele end’s low-frequency range, making it perfect for fixed-point shooting.
Dual-Pixel CMOS Autofocus. The dual-pixel CMOS system autofocuses quickly, quietly, and precisely, even when you’re shooting in UHD 4K, Full HD 120p, and other high frame rates. You can tap the camera’s touchscreen to select the focusing area, which is especially convenient when you’re using the Face-Detection AF mode.
Tilting EVF and Touchscreen LCD. The XF405 features a newly designed tilting 1.56m-dot electronic viewfinder and a large 3.5-inch 1.56m-dot touchscreen LCD, both of which make for easy image review. You can also use the touchscreen to easily access menu options and to control autofocus.
Mini HDMI 2.0 & 3G-SDI Output. While the XF405 can record 4K/60p internally in the MP4 format, sometimes you need more. The XF405’s mini-HDMI 2.0 terminal outputs the full 4K/60p signal for external recording in a format of your choice, depending on recorder used. Additionally, the XF405 includes a 3G-SDI terminal that outputs up to a Full HD 1080/60p signal for a professional multi-camera workflow.
Additional Features. You can use the XF405’s dual SD card slots for simultaneous or relay recording in MP4 format. You get built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for file sharing and remote camera control, four audio channels, and two XLR inputs. ND is built-in, and its three filter stages can be swapped with buttons on the side of the lens. The detachable handle is easy to install and includes a range of controls, a mic holder, an IR lamp, a tally light, and a cold-shoe mount. The camera is powered by Canon’s compact and lightweight BP-828 battery.
All three of these cameras are based on the exact same sensor and lens, with many of the same recording features shared. The VIXIA GX10 is essentially the base model.
Stepping up to the XF400 nets you the audio top handle with two XLR inputs and an ethernet input for wired FTP capability.
Stepping up further to the XF405 gains everything the XF400 did, plus a 3G-SDI terminal for professional video output.
This camera features a Mini HDMI Out terminal. Links to compatible HDMI cables can be found under Recommended on the left-hand side of this page.
