1.0-inch 4K UHD CMOS Image Sensor
TheXF400Professional Camcorder features a Canon 1.0-inch 4K UHD CMOS imagesensor capable of 4K UHD video capture at 60p and slow motion recordingup to 120fps in Full HD, making the XF400 camcorder a strong contenderfor professional productions, creative fields and more.
High Sensitivity / Low Noise
TheXF400camcorder's 1.0-inch sensor allows for larger photosites compared tosmaller-sized sensors, resulting in improved images with less noise inlow-light situations. The larger sensor also exhibits a shallower depthof field at large apertures, providing greater depth of field controland creative options. The camcorder's new DIGIC DV 6 imaging enginefurther enhances the high sensitivity and low noise performance of thecamcorder.
* With Auto Slow Shutter ON and shutter speed at 1/30 sec.
Wide DR Gamma (800%) Support
Fornatural and realistic-looking image capture that faithfully representsthe scene at hand, Wide DR Gamma achieves a wide dynamic range of 800%toproduce almost seamless tone gradations, resulting in smoothdetail,accurate colour and virtually no blown-out highlights.
15x Optical 4K UHD Zoom Lens with 5-Axis Optical Image Stabilization
TheXF400Professional Camcorder incorporates a Canon 4K video lens thatleverages proprietary Canon optical technologies derived from years ofexperience in developing Cinema, Broadcast and EF series lenses.
Inspiredby the same high level of optical precision used in Canon broadcast andphotographic lenses, the Canon XF400 camcorder incorporates a GenuineCanon 15x optical zoom lens that maintains 4K UHD quality throughout theentire zoom range, and offers a focal length range of 25.5 to382.5mm(35mm film equivalent). Users can get up to 30x Advanced Zoomwhen shooting in Full HD, which utilizes the XF400 camcorder's full 4KUHD sensor to extend the zoom range while maintaining image quality.
5-Axis Optical Image Stabilization
TheXF400camcorder also incorporates a 5-axis Optical Image Stabilization(IS)system. The camcorder features three modes of imagestabilization:Standard, Dynamic and Powered. In Standard IS mode, thestabilizing angle is made constant independent of the zoommagnification. Dynamic IS mode extends the stabilizing range at the wideend of the focal length,allowing for image stabilization when shootingwhile walking. PoweredIS mode helps facilitate stabilization in the lowfrequency range at the tele end, and should be used exclusively forfixed-point shooting which does not involve panning.
Forenhanced versatility and durability, the lens features a 9-bladeiris,producing artistic and beautiful out-of-focus areas or "bokeh." The9blades allow for attractive circular blurring in out-of-focusregions,while the use of an odd number of blades helps reduce flaring ofspecular highlights.
A compactand independent internal 3-density ND filter, using a turret(circular)mechanism, allows the user to select from three densities (ND1/4, ND1/16 and ND 1/64) or turn the feature off if needed. Density canbe adjusted using the dedicated external buttons.
Optional Wide and Tele Accessories
Theoptional Wide Attachment WA-U58 and the Tele ConverterTL-U58accessories expand the creative capabilities of the XF400camcorder.
The Wide Attachment WA-U58 offers a 0.8x wider angleof view that enables users to capture more of a scene, especially whenindoors or in tight spaces, to lend better perspective to your videonarrative. The TeleConverter TL-U58 provides extended 1.5x longertelephoto range for theXF400 camcorder's fixed lens, allowing distantsubjects to be captured with brilliant clarity.
Dual DIGIC DV 6 Image Processors
TheXF400Professional Camcorder incorporates Canon's dual DIGIC DV 6 ImageProcessors, which are integral in providing high image quality,advancedperformance and convenient operability. This advanced core technologycomponent provides the image-processing power and speed that enablesfeatures such as 4K UHD video acquisition, image stabilization,slow andfast motion recording and precise Dual Pixel CMOS AF.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
TheXF400Professional Camcorder features Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Canon's exclusivelydeveloped high-speed, high-precision autofocus technology.Dual PixelCMOS AF assists not only with standard shooting, but also with 4K UHD60p, Full HD 120p and other high-frame rate applications that requirecrisp frame-by-frame accuracy.
Each pixel in the camcorder'sCMOS sensor is configured with two photodiodes. Two independent imagesignals can then be detected at each photosite. By implementingphase-difference AF, smooth focusing is accomplished with much higherspeed and accuracy than was possible with previous technologies.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Touch Focus
TheXF400camcorder's 3.5-inch touch panel LCD enables smooth, intuitiveoperation of Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Accurate AF technology can be employedwhen shooting a scene by tapping a finger on the desired area of thescene you want the lens to focus on. Dual Pixel CMOS AF offerscontinuous AF within a horizontal and vertical range of the screen ofapproximately 80%. It also provides highly accurate Face DetectionAF,which assists during single-operator shooting. Users can also use thetouch panel to move the autofocus target manually.
Face Detection AF
TheFace Detection AF feature has two modes - Face Priority AF and FaceOnly AF - that offer users precise flexibility in how they choose theirautofocus for a subject or scene.
Dual Pixel Focus Guide
Utilizinginformation from Dual Pixel CMOS AF, Dual Pixel Focus Guide helpsachieve precise focus by displaying focus assist information on thescreen. It employs a truly innovative user interface that enables theuser to see if they are focused in front of or behind the subjectthrough visual observation, and allows quick and accurate manual focusto be achieved. This helps simplify the focusing process when shootingin 4K UHD, which requires strict focus accuracy.
4K UHD and FullHD Recording to Dual SD Card Slots
TheXF400Professional Camcorder offers 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) and Full HD(1920 x1080) recording in MP4 format at up to 60p.
