Detailed Features

20x zoom wide angle Canon HD video lens

Capture superb quality footage thanks to the XA30’s stunning and versatile 26.8mm¹ wide angle lens. A 20x zoom gets you up close to the action, while Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation compensates for shake in 5 directions to provide ultra-steady images. f/1.8 maximum aperture, an 8-blade iris and EDM technology enable beautiful ‘bokeh’ effects.

Improved 1/2.84" HD CMOS Pro sensor

The newly developed Canon HD CMOS Pro sensor achieves an effective pixel count of approximately 2.91 megapixels to deliver stunning Full HD picture quality. With increased sensitivity and an improved signal-to-noise ratio, low light images in particular appear cleaner with reduced noise.

Flexible new image settings

Two new picture settings help you achieve even more impressive results. Wide DR mode gives you a 600% dynamic range, resulting in bright images with high contrast that retain detail in both highlight and shadow areas, without the need for post-production. Highlight Priority mode reproduces footage with more natural tones, richer colours and detail particularly in areas of high brightness² perfect for scenes with bright skies and reflective surfaces.

8.77cm (3.5") OLED touchscreen and tiltable EVF

Despite its compact size, the XA30 provides high-quality monitoring. An easy-to-use OLED touch screen with a 1.23 million dot resolution offers faster response times and superior definition, contrast and colour reproduction compared to LCD equivalents. A 0.61cm (0.24”) 1.56 million dot EVF can tilt up to 45° - easily accommodating a range of shooting positions.

Versatile dual-format recording

AVCHD video can be recorded at up to 28Mbps in 1080/50P; while for maximum quality, select the 35Mbps 1080/50P MP4 recording mode. The two SDXC/SDHC memory card slots allow for simultaneous recording³ of high-quality HD and lower resolution MP4 files for easier file transfer – ideal when a quick turn-around of footage is needed. Fast and slow motion recording options with interval recording (x2 to x1200) are available in MP4 modes.

Professional audio

The XA30 features comprehensive audio control. Two XLR terminals provide professional connectivity, while high quality linear PCM and Dolby Digital recording options come as standard.⁴ A built-in microphone and 3.5mm input jack offer extra choice and flexibility.

Infrared shooting

The XA30 can easily be used at night or in low ambient light conditions thanks to the improved sensor sensitivity and bright infrared light source built into the handle – making it ideal for the wildlife videographer.

Built-in Wi-Fi, expandable for GPS

Transfer footage wirelessly using an iOS phone or tablet, or via FTP at up to 150 Mbps⁵. Remotely control camera functions through a Wi-Fi enabled device with no need for separate apps. Location data can be recorded using an optional GPS accessory.

Compact, lightweight body

With its detachable handle, this discreet and highly portable camera is ideal for shooting in sensitive or confined environments. Its lightweight body reduces fatigue during extended periods of hand-held filming.

 

 

The highly compact and lightweight models feature a newly developed HD CMOS Pro sensor that provides higher sensitivity and improved low-light performance. Both cameras also include new Wide Dynamic Range (DR) and Highlight Priority settings, making them suitable for shooting everything from news and documentaries to weddings and corporate films.

First-class image quality and video processing performance Utilising Canon’s heritage in optical expertise and advanced technologies, the newly designed 1/2.84-type 2.91 Megapixel HD CMOS Pro sensor has enhanced sensitivity with improved signal-to-noise ratio. As a result, images are crisp and clear, even in low-light environments. Low-light shooting opportunities are further boosted by improved infrared performance, ideal for users capturing nocturnal wildlife or night-time documentaries.

The 20x zoom wide-angle lens offers a 26.8–576mm (35mm equivalent) focal range and employs Canon’s intelligent 5-axis Optical Image Stabilization System with Dynamic IS. The lens also features an 8 blade circular aperture to give enhanced ‘bokeh’.

INCREDIBLE DYNAMIC RANGE, RICHER COLOURS

The XA35 and XA30 feature two new settings - Wide DR and Highlight Priority. In Wide DR mode, the cameras are able to achieve 600% dynamic range, resulting in bright images with high contrast that retain detail in both highlight and shadow areas, without the need for post-production. When using the Highlight Priority setting, users are able to produce footage with more natural tones and richer colours, particularly in areas of high brightness1, perfect for scenes with bright skies and reflective surfaces. Both models also feature slow and fast recording modes, supporting a range of shooting scenarios with interval recording options up to a maximum of 1200x normal speed.

DISCREET AND PORTABLE, IDEAL FOR ON THE MOVE

Compact and lightweight, the XA35 and XA30 are perfect for news gatherers and journalists who often need to record discreetly whilst on the move but don’t want to compromise on quality. The cameras are also exceptionally easy to use, featuring extensive automatic functions, ideal for corporate and education environments.

Both the XA35 and XA30 feature detachable handles for even greater portability and versatility when handheld filming on location.

The XA35 and XA30 have the same popular ergonomic design as seen in their predecessors, the XA25 and XA20. Easily attached or removed to suit the shooting situation, the removable handle with professional audio XLR terminals provides maximum flexibility for users.

INTEGRATION AND CONNECTIVITY

Featuring a HD/SD-SDI terminal, the XA35 will integrate with existing equipment for onward transfer or transmission and includes embedded audio and timecode signals. Providing users with the ability to export uncompressed high resolution digital video in real time, it’s the perfect compact video camera for live TV and news gathering environments, allowing users to complement footage from other broadcast cameras.

IMPROVED CONNECTIVITY

The cameras also support high quality AVCHD (up to 28Mbps) and MP4 (up to 35Mbps) file formats and include dual SD card slots, providing instant backup through simultaneous recording or the option for relay recording at longer events, ideal for wedding videographers.

Increased connectivity and dual-band WiFi allow greater flexibility, such as remote control and wireless file transfer with the use of a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Both the XA35 and XA30 are dual-band WiFi enabled which allow remote control of the camera, wireless file transfer/upload and browser preview, all with the use of a smartphone, tablet or computer. The cameras are also compatible with Canon’s GP-E2 GPS receiver, meaning GPS data can be embedded in the metadata of video footage. This feature allows accurate recording of the location where footage was captured, ideal for both journalists and legal purposes.
