Canon USA have released 3 new cameras for use in applications like broadcast interviews, documentaries and weddings.
Designed with advanced amateurs and hobbyists in mind, the 4K cameras feature a newly developed 15x optical zoom lens (35 mm film equivalent: 25.5mm–382.5mm) to support 4K recording, alongside a 1.0-inch CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC DV 6 image-processing platform, to produce stunning 4K/60p recording across the entire zoom range.
In addition, the compact and lightweight body designs measure approximately 13.4cm (l) x 9.65cm(h) x 21.33 cm (d) and weigh approximately 0.02kgs, 1.14kg and 1.13kg for the XF405, XF400 and VIXIA GX10, respectively.
The compact and lightweight nature of all three 4K UHD models provide great mobility when shooting such scenes as news reports and events.
All three camcorders provide users with fast, highly accurate focusing through intuitive touch-panel operations and feature Dual Pixel CMOS AF—a technology that offers smooth Auto Focus(AF) operation with high-tracking capabilities, making it ideal for shooting video.
All camcorders have a HDMI output are dual SD and can record to MP4 for easy uploading, but like all things Canon, these babies arent cheap.
The camera’s are available in November 2017 for estimated retail prices of $3499.00, $2999.00 and $2499.00 although pricing will probably vary in retail stores.
