The Canon XA35 compact professional Full HD video camera features a newly developed Canon CMOS sensor delivering exceptionally high-sensitivity imaging performance.




HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor


The XA35 features a new 1/2.84-inch HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor that captures approximately 2136x1362 pixels. It features a +3dB improvement in signal-to-noise ratio compared to the previous model, allowing it to camera clearer and sharper images in low light conditions.


20x Canon Optical Zoom Lens


The Canon 20x HD Zoom Lens provides a zoom range with a 35mm equivalent of 26.8 to 576mm, and a minimum object distance of just 23.6". The lens features an eight blade iris design providing a more natural look, out of focus areas are smoother and more appealing. The lens features an endless-type manual focus/zoom ring and the built-in power zoom control includes user-programmable direction and sensitivity modes. Zoom speed can be set to variable, constant (with 16 levels), with fast, normal, or slow speeds.


1920x1080 Video Recording


The XA35 offers multiple recording modes, resolutions, and frames rates, giving you the ability to adapt to a variety of workflows and applications. It can record in Full HD 1920x1080 resolution up to 50p in both AVCHD and MP4 recording codecs, at multiple bit rates, and even simultaneously to dual SD cards. For documentary and independent film work, 23.98p frame rates are available.


Slow and Fast Motion and Interval Recording


Slow and Fast Motion Modes allow the XA35 to record a different frame rate than the playback frame rate in MP4 recording modes, for a fast or slow motion effect during playback. Additionally, an interval recording option allows you to record frames at specified intervals, providing time-lapse recording from 2x to 1200x of the original speed.
