Quick Overview

Canon HD Video Lens (10x zoom, 30.4mm, F1.8) Canon HD CMOS Pro Sensor Infrared Shooting Mode

Product Description

The new ultra compact Canon XA10 Professional Camcorder is designed for situations where mobility is critical while shooting. This feature-rich, professional model records Full HD 1080p using an AVCHD codec. The ultimate professional camcorder for run-and-gun shooting, the compact Canon XA 10 includes a detachable handle for low-angle shooting and portability. With the handle attached the XA10 Canon functionality is further enhanced with the addition of XLR inputs and an external microphone holder.

A Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Camera Lens delivers a wide, flexible zoom range (35mm equivalent range 30.4mm-304mm) and smooth, pleasing backgrounds thanks to an 8-blade iris. And an infrared mode allows users to capture video in conditions with little or no ambient light, a situation which would make other camcorders useless.

The new Canon XA10 provides the option of recording to a 64GB internal flash drive or two SDXC-compatible card slots and the ability to simultaneously record to two cards at once for instant backup. Portable and packed with professional features, this camcorder will be the model of choice for on-the-go videographers.
