Outstanding HD camcorder

  • Conclusion: I have used the Canon XF305 during 2 years. The camcorder is really one of the best in its class I have ever used. The main elements that could attract the attention of most videographers are: The lens - it is excellent! The colors and resolution are very nice. I can't compare it with the others in its class. It is the best! Just it! The camera has a very big and flexible 4 inch and high quality LCD screen and viewfinder.
  • Pros: good battery life, Good Low-Light Performance, Easy Computer Connectivity, Great sound/audio, Accurate, Vivid Colors, excellent image quality, durable, Good Software Compatibility, Ergonomic/comfortable to hold, Easy TV Connectivity, easy to use

Excellent result....

  • Excerpt: Its low lux camera. You can shoot at dark place, not that much heavy. Small size helps you to take moving shot perfectly. Battery backup is very good. If you're first time buying Canon, it might be difficult to understand camera for Sony users. Results are very good.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Professional Quality

Stunning performance

  • Conclusion: I bought the XF305 originally as a 'B' camera to complement my high end Canon DSLR's and the companies C300. All I can say is the XF305 is far from being a 'B' camera. It clearly matched the C300 in terms of clarity, and using the custom profile feature that all important Cine look is possible, though shallow DOF won't be as shallow. For my style of filming, the 305 offers stunning performance and quality features at an amazing price - well done Canon!
  • Pros: good battery life, Good Low-Light Performance, Easy Computer Connectivity, Great sound/audio, Accurate, Vivid Colors, Compact Design, excellent image quality, durable, Ergonomic/comfortable to hold, Easy TV Connectivity, easy to use
  • Cons: Limited Software Compatibility

Superb camcorder

  • Excerpt: It is a very nice professional HD camcorder. The image quality is more than expected. I used to have it with an external HD recorder just for compare. Telling the truth I haven't seen any difference in picture quality even at the highest Mbits of the external HD/SDI recorders. The lens quality is very high. The 4 inch LCD and the VF are just superb! Mostly recommended!
