The Canon XF405 Camcorder is an all-in-one that can shoot 4K UHD footage at 60p and slow motion up to 120FPS in Full HD. The built-in 25.5-382.5mm (equivalent) lens sports 15x optical zoom and features a 9-blade iris, which aids in producing artistic and beautiful out-of-focus areas. This camcorder is equipped with 5-axis image stabilization as well as Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which deploys two photodiodes within each sensor photosite for powerful phase detection that ultimately helps ensure that proper focus is always maintained, even in unpredictable "run and gun" news or documentary-type shooting situations. Use the built-in touchscreen monitor for intuitive operation of Dual Pixel CMOS AF – simply tap your desired area of focus.

While incredibly user-friendly, the Canon XF405 Camcorder allows for some of the advanced solutions you find in systems like the Canon XC15 4K Professional Camcorder. It offers four channels of audio with manual/automatic recording levels and two XLR inputs for external microphones (not included). The HDMI 2.0 terminal allows connection to a standard external SSD/HDD recorder (not included), enabling conversion to ProRes and DNx formats for efficient editing and storage, while the 3G-SDI output terminal supports integration into professional workflows. It is similar to the Sony FDR-AX53 4K Ultra HD Camcorder but with a few more robust features, like recording to two SD cards slots, improved ergonomics thanks to a detachable top handle, built-in ND filters, and dual DIGIC DV 6 image processors. This camcorder is an ideal fixed-lens solution for event shooters looking for high quality results from a really compact system.
