Key Features



  • 20x f/1.8 wide-angle zoom lens for amazing long-distance shots
  • HD CMOS Pro sensor provides outstanding image quality, even in low light
  • Compact, lightweight design, with 3-ring lens operation and rotatable grip
  • OLED display and 1.23m dot viewfinder enable precise monitoring
  • Share content easily via built in WiFi or Ethernet; record proxy files directly to other devices
  • Dual format recording: broadcast standard 50Mbps MPEG2 codec, plus MP4 in HD or SD
  • Genlock, Timecode, and 3G-SDI terminals for multi-cam integration1
  • Wide DR gamma helps to avoid over-exposure
  • 4-channel audio recording; 2 XLR inputs
  • Infrared shooting mode, with enhanced IR lamp



The XF205 and XF200 feature an advanced camera system capable of providing outstanding images and the responsiveness to deal with all kinds of shooting situations. A 26.8mm wide-angle lens with 20x zoom gets you closer to the action, while Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation compensates for shake in five directions to provide ultra-steady images.

A Canon HD CMOS Pro sensor combines with the DIGIC DV 4 processor to deliver stunning picture quality – even in low light – as well as outstanding dynamic range and realistic colour reproduction.


The superb picture quality of the cameras is complemented by advanced audio functions, with up to four-channel Linear PCM audio recording supported and two XLR inputs allowing the option to use professional-grade microphones. In addition, a built-in stereo microphone and a 3.5mm microphone jack provide users with a wide range of audio options.


The dual-format recording feature of the XF205 and XF200 cameras provides flexibility, speed and data security. Footage can be captured simultaneously in two different formats, providing instant back-up and alternate delivery options. Full HD images can be stored on two CF cards using a broadcast-standard 50Mbps MPEG2 codec, whilst an MP4 version can be saved to an SD card in either Full HD or a lower resolution – ideal for rapid file transfer in applications such as news gathering. It's even possible to stream low resolution proxy files directly to another device such as a Smartphone.


Utilising technology first seen on the EOS C300 and then the EOS C100 Digital Cinema Cameras, the XF205 and XF200 cameras include a Wide Dynamic Range shooting mode that enables a dynamic range of 600%. In combination with high sensitivity this allows the cameras to film in low light situations with exceptional quality and to record fine detail beautifully in shadow and highlight areas without any loss of detail.



Compact in size, unobtrusive and a pleasure to use thanks to its 3-ring lens operation, the XF205 and XF200 also provide impressively high quality monitoring options. An 8.8cm OLED screen with a 1.23m dot resolution is easy to view, even in bright sunlight, offering better response times, definition, contrast and colour reproduction than LCD equivalents. A sizeable, high quality 1.14cm, 1.23m dot EVF can tilt up to 68° to accommodate different shooting positions.

The appeal of the XF205 and XF200 for ‘run and gun’ situations is further enhanced with a rotating handgrip that allows for easy and comfortable capture at both low and high angles (when held either horizontally or vertically).

Three separate lens rings – for focus, zoom and iris – provide a configuration that is familiar to experienced camera operators, allowing a much quicker response in dynamic shooting environments.



Sharing content is easy as each camera features WiFi and Ethernet LAN connectivity, allowing direct or wireless connection to a wide range of devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. Wireless connectivity offers the freedom to control the camera from a distance, view footage remotely and conveniently transfer files via FTP without the need for any additional software.

A new CameraAccess function allows lower-quality proxy files to be streamed to another device via WiFi, thus improving the speed in which content, such as news flashes, can be shared. This connectivity also allows for remote control of the camera via a web browser and Canon's RC-V100 wired remote controller can be configured too.



The XF205 expands the connectivity options further with the inclusion of selectable 3G-SDi/HD-SDI, Timecode In/Out and Genlock terminals for easy integration on multi-camera shoots or with other broadcast equipment. The camera also features a monitor out BNC connection.


The XF205 and XF200 both feature a high-power integrated Infrared (IR) lamp to allow for night-time shooting, further increasing the operability and versatility of the cameras in a wide range of challenging filming situations. The IR lamp is three times stronger than the IR lamp seen in the XA25 model – ideal for the recording of night-time documentaries or nocturnal wildlife.



The XF205 and XF200 feature a Canon 20x (26.8-576mm range) broadcast-quality zoom lens and an Optical Image Stabilisation system, which includes Dynamic IS. A beautiful ‘bokeh’ effect can be delivered thanks to an 8-blade circular aperture that uses Canon’s unique Electro Magnetic Diaphragm technology – developed for the company’s EF lens range – to ensure beautiful background blur in shots with a shallow depth-of-field.

This lens also includes Hi-UD glass elements, broadcast lens technology previously found in Canon’s XF300-series camcorders. Unique Canon lens coatings ensure clear, sharp pictures throughout the frame.


Canon develops and manufactures its own CMOS sensors for HD camcorders and the XF205 and XF200 cameras feature a 1/2.84-type HD CMOS Pro sensor with an effective pixel count of approximately 2.91 Megapixels. The sensor measures 2136x1362 pixels and helps to contribute to the performance of the IS system while the new and improved DIGIC DV 4 image processing platform included in these cameras improves signal-to-noise ratio and increases low-light performance.


The DIGIC DV 4 processor in the XF205 and XF200 models is the latest development of Canon’s powerful processors for video cameras, replacing the previous DIGIC DV III. The outstanding processing capability provided by a DIGIC DV 4 processor provides enhanced image reproduction, supplementing the strengths of the DIGIC DV family – such as smooth gradation and faithful colour reproduction – with support for recording at higher data rates. The sensor and processor work together to eliminate more camera shake, augmenting a highly effective Optical IS system with electronic stabilisation that detects and compensates for movement in a larger number of directions.
