10x zoom Canon HD Video Lens
Drawing on Canon’s broadcast lens expertise, XF100 features a fast, wide angle Canon HD Video Lens (f1.8-f2.8, 30.4mm) with built-in control ring for adjustment of zoom, focus or iris. An enhanced Optical Image Stabilizer system helps to reduce chromatic aberration, maintain sharpness and reduce lens size.

1/3 type Full HD Canon CMOS
A 2.07MP Full HD CMOS sensor – designed and manufactured by Canon - captures Full HD video at native 1920x1080 resolution. The sensor is equipped with a Bayer pattern colour filter for high sensitivity and wide dynamic range; high-speed data readout technology minimises rolling-shutter skew that can occur in CMOS camcorders.

3D Assist Functions; Infrared shooting mode
The XF100 features 3D Shooting Assist functions (OIS Axis Shift and Focal Length Guide) which support stereoscopic 3D video capture using two camcorders. With twice the infrared (IR) sensitivity of previous models it’s also perfect for low light shooting using the new IR Shooting Mode and built-in IR lamp. Green and white options are available to suit different projects.

8.8cm (3.5’’) 920k dot LCD; 0.6cm (0.24”), 260k dot EVF
Both camcorders feature a large, side-mounted LCD. This 8.8cm (3.5”) screen has a sharp, 920k dot resolution, with a built-in waveform monitor and Edge Focus function to help set up the shot. A 0.61cm (0.25’’), 260k dot EVF with 100% coverage is also available.

Variable frame rate

Spanish sun...

Our absolute favourite find was the Museo Sorolla, a celebration of the life and work of Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923). The museum, opened in 1932, was once the Madrid home of this influential impressionist painter.
