$128 / 1st day rental


The Canon XF205 HD Camcorder is a compact and ergonomically friendly camera suitable for traditional multicamera productions as well as ENG, event coverage, independent films, and documentaries. The camera features a 1/2.84" CMOS sensor that captures 1920 x 1080 video at various frame rates up to 59.94p, including a 24p mode for a more cinematic feel. The integrated Canon 20x HD optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 26.8 to 576mm and features an eight-bladed iris to render highlights in a more natural manner. Individual gear rings for focus, zoom, and iris on the lens provide you with a natural way to make manual adjustments.


The camera records MPEG-2 at frame rates of 23.98/29.97p and 59.94i at up to 50 Mb/s, with 4:2:2 color sampling, to integrated CF card slots using an MXF wrapper that is compatible with most popular NLE systems. You can also record to an integrated SDXC card slot using the MP4 codec at frame rates up to 59.94p. The XF205 features four channels of audio with manual/automatic record levels, with two XLR inputs and a built-in camera microphone. The built-in handgrip features 120° of rotation, making it easier to find a comfortable shooting position.

Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi allows you to control the camera's functions from available mobile devices as well as view footage on the devices. Proxy files can be transferred via Wi-Fi while you are shooting new footage. The camera also incorporates an Ethernet connection, so you can transfer files directly from the camera. An HDMI output provides you with video out.
