Offering users exceptional value, the XA40 is a 4K camcorder that is equipped with the Canon 4K Video System comprising a 4K UHD CMOS image sensor, the DIGIC DV 6 image processing platform and a 4K video lens. It easily achieves high quality 4K footage that expands the possibilities in 4K imaging, raising the bar for image quality. Capable of recording 4K 25P/30P* video in MP4 format, the camera can also shoot fast and slow motion video at up to 1200x and 0.5x/0.4x** the normal speed respectively. It operates with lower power consumption and enables recording for up to 2x longer than its higher-end cousin, the XF405.
The 4K-compatible CMOS sensor,
DIGIC DV 6 image processing platform and Canon 4K video lens work together to produce high quality 4K footage. The camera can record 4K UHD YCC 4:2:0 8-bit 25P/30P* footage internally and supports MP4 format recording. Dual SD card slots enable both simultaneous and relay recording, allowing for flexibility in footage transfer and longer recording times. Full HD footage is produced by Over Sampling HD Processing, which oversamples data from all pixels on the 4K CMOS sensor, resulting in superior image quality.
The 4K video lens is equipped with a 20x optical zoom that covers a focal range from 29.3mm (wide-angle end) to 601mm (telephoto end). It features Canon’s 3D real-time lens structure, which realizes a wide-angle fixed lens that is capable of a high zoom magnification and high-definition images. An 8-blade circular aperture diaphragm achieves beautiful bokeh quality. The lens also features 5-axis image stabilization made possible through a combination of optical and electronic image stabilization systems. The Dynamic IS mode, tailored to stabilize images even when shooting while walking, aids the realization of high quality, stable images regardless of whether the user is stationary or moving.
The XA40 features a 3.5mm microphone jack that supports plug-in power, two XLR terminals on the detachable handle, and a 2-channel built-in microphone, all of which complement the new compatibility with LPCM 4ch audio recording. Ease-of-use has also been enhanced, with the menu button shifted to the right to enable one-hand operation and the UI redesigned for easier menu navigation and configuration of settings. In addition to the support for slow motion and fast motion video recording in both 4K and Full HD, infrared shooting is also supported, enabling users to shoot in pitch darkness with the assistance of the built-in infrared light.
