A light, compact 4K camcorder, the XA55 is equipped with a 1.0-inch type CMOS sensor and the DIGIC DV 6 image processor. Capable of recording in 4K UHD 25P/30P* in both XF-AVC and MP4 formats, it features the Dual Pixel CMOS AF system which helps users easily achieve the highly accurate pinpoint focus that 4K recording demands. The high-resolution Canon 4K video zoom lens supports the large sensor, and in combination, they enable the production of excellent 4K footage. The lower power consumption enables a shooting time twice longer than that on the XF405, which uses the same battery. This, combined with its lightweight mobility, makes the XA55 a professional-standard camcorder ideal for long hours of shooting.
The large, Dual Pixel CMOS AF-capable 1.0-inch type sensor not only lets the user achieve shallow focus effects unique to that sensor size, but also boasts improved noise performance, resulting in higher quality footage in low light situations.
The camcorder supports both the XF-AVC and MP4 formats as well as internal recording in 4K UHD YCC 4:2:0 8-bit 25P/30P*. The dual SD card slots enable both simultaneous and relay recording. A 3G-SDI terminal supports output in
Full HD YCC 4:2:2 10-bit 25P/50i (PAL model) as well as 30P/60i (NTSC model).
The ultra-high resolution in 4K means that it is more obvious than ever if the shot is the slightest bit out of focus, or has the tiniest hint of focus seeking. Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a technology developed by Canon, wherein each image sensor pixel is equipped with two photodiodes, making it possible for all pixels to perform both phase detection and imaging. This enhances its ability to accurately establish the location of subjects and achieve precise, tack-sharp focus — perfect for enhancing the quality of your 4K footage. Features such as Touch AF, Face Detection AF and touch tracking further support the creation of high-quality 4K video.
