The Canon XA20 Professional PAL HD Camcorder is a compact "run-and-gun" camera with HD-SDI output that is suitable for ENG, event coverage, and independent and documentary filmmaking. The camera features a 1/2.84", 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensor that captures video at various frame rates including 50p, 50i and 25p. The integrated 20x optical zoom lens has a 35 mm equivalent zoom range of 26.8 to 576mm and features an 8-bladed iris to help create softer, more natural looking bokeh. The Digic DV 4 Image Processor not only provides more efficient de-bayering and interpolation as the image is captured off the sensor, the image-processing engine powers Canon's Dynamic IS (Image Stabilization) mode, which provides compensation not only for horizontal and vertical shake but also by adding correction for camera roll in three axes. In addition, the power of the Digic DV 4 is leveraged by the compressor, letting you simultaneously encode your video to two different codecs and bit rates simultaneously, letting you, for example, record a web-ready version and a high quality master that will be available for upload and editing as soon as you stop recording. The XA20 features both a 3.5" OLED flip-out touchscreen with 1,230,000 dot resolution and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, and a color electronic viewfinder (EVF) with 1,560,000 dots of resolution. The camera features full manual control and auto modes for exposure, focus, white balance, gain, and shutter speed. The camera provides professional features such as a pre-record buffer, peaking, zebra bars, color bars, and reference tone. The zoom speed is adjustable with variable, constant (with 16 selectable discrete speed levels), fast, normal and slow settings. The camera features a detachable top handle with zoom toggle, record start/stop, IR emitter, tally light, accessory shoe, external mic holder and two XLR connectors with +48 V phantom power and manual audio level controls. The XA20 includes a built-in headphone jack and an HDMI mini connector, and outputs composite video and audio via a 3.5 mm mini jack. Two built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slots allow you to record video to available media cards in both slots at the same time. This allows you to create an instant back up copy for archiving and data protection or you can capture high resolution AVCHD or MP4 video files on one card while creating a lower data rate MP4 more suitable for the web on the other card. When using two media cards with the camera is in Relay mode, there is no need to stop shooting when the first card gets full. Recording seamlessly switches to the second card. Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi and FTP allows you to upload video files directly from the camera to your server or a social media site, or playback footage from the memory cards to Wi-Fi enabled TVs and Computers. You can also remotely control select camera functions from a smart phone or tablet over Wi-Fi, freeing you from remote cables. Native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Sensor The XA20 features a 1/2.84-inch HD CMOS Image Sensor with 2.91 MP. Keeping the sensor resolution lower means the individual photosites are larger, increasing their light gathering ability. 20x Optical Zoom Lens The Canon 20x HD Zoom Lens provides a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 26.8 mm-576 mm, and a minimum object distance of just 23.6 inches (60cm). An eight blade iris design gives the out of focus areas a smoother, more circular bokeh pattern. The lens features an endlessly rotating manual focus/zoom ring, and the built-in power zoom control includes user-programmable direction and sensitivity modes. Zoom speeds can be set to variable, constant (with 16 levels), fast, normal or slow. Digic DV 4 Image Processor The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor works in concert with the HD CMOS Image Sensor to reduce noise, aliasing, and color artifacts caused by de-bayering. It also powers Dynamic Mode image stabilization, an electronic correction of unwanted rotational movement. Finally, the processor enables simultaneous encoding of video to two cards in two different codecs simultaneously. Image Stabilization The XA20 offers optical image stabilization (IS) useful for reducing shake while shooting hand held. User selectable IS modes you choose the setting that works best for your situation. Alternatively, you can select "Intelligent IS" and let the camera identify the appropriate stabilization mode for you. IS Modes In addition to traditional horizontal/vertical correction, Dynamic Mode takes advantage of the Digic DV 4 processor, using it to help offset circular motion and roll. Macro IS: corrects angular and shift-type shake in wide-angle shots. Powered IS: corrects for low-frequency camcorder shake when shooting at the long (telephoto) end of the lens Auto Focus Auto focus selection allows you to choose between a slower, more natural autofocus, instant autofocus for situations where speed is more important than finesse and will abruptly snap the subject in focus, and Face Detection AF in...
