The Canon XA55 Dual Pixel AF Camcorder is an ultra compact camcorder that shoots 4K and provides easy functionality for on-the-go shooting. Here are some of the standout features of this camcorder:

Enhanced Sensor and Fast Autofocus

This sensor has larger photosites than many other camcorders in its size class, resulting in less noise when recording in low light. Enjoy shallower depth of field at wide apertures, a wide dynamic range with seamless tone gradations, and accurate color.

Equipped with Canon's high-speed, high-precision autofocus technology, the XA55 offers incredibly smooth focusing. This feature pairs well with the camcorder's built-in 3" touchscreen LCD for intuitive control over your scene. Move your AF target manually or use the highly-sensitive Face Detection feature – all while solo shooting. Verify your settings quickly thanks to the Dual Pixel Focus Guide, which displays focus assist info right on your screen and prevents you from accidentally front or back-focusing your subject.

The 5-Axis Optical Image Stabilization system offers a substantial reduction in distortion when recording. It has 3 distinct modes: Standard, Dynamic, and Powered. Standard keeps the stabilization angle constant independently of zoom, Dynamic allows for stabilization during walking or running, and Powered provides stabilization when using the telephoto range.

Straightforward and Versatile Design

Record directly to dual SD cards (cards not included) in 4K or externally over SDI or HDMI in a variety of recording modes and resolutions. The 3G-SDI output provides an uncompressed signal at 1920 x 1080 in 4:2:2 10-bit with embedded time code. The HDMI output supports 4K UHD up to 60p, which allows for connecting to an external recorder and conversion to ProRes or DNx formats.

Choose from among a variety of audio sources: via the 3.5mm mic terminal, the internal stereo mic, or 1 of 2 XLR ports. This gives you the option of using professional external microphones (not included) or other analog line-in audio sources. Audio signal can be output along with your video signal from the SDI and HDMI terminals as well.

This camcorder is under a foot long and very portable, even with the full handle configuration. It is designed specifically for long days of news gathering or documentary work and supports a low power setting for over 2 hours of continuous recording. The Canon XA55 Dual Pixel AF Camcorder is a great choice for ENG, documentaries, travel, and vacations.
