The Canon XA60 Professional UHD 4K Camera features UHD 4K capture, a 1/2.3 Inch CMOS sensor, two XLR audio inputs, and one mini-HDMI output, making it suitable for documentary or journalism-style productions. This streamlined model features a larger 3.5mm LCD capacitive touchscreen display, a higher resolution tiltable 0.36 Inch OLED EVF, XF-AVC and MP4 recording formats, OSD metadata recording, and fast USB Type-C video-only output with UVC support for livestreaming to a computer.

The lens optics include an integrated 20x 4K/HD optical zoom and an eight-bladed circular iris for more natural highlights. The camera's pro-style features include Hybrid, Normal, Face Only, Manual Focus, Instant, and Canon's Medium autofocus; fast- and slow-motion recording, full manual control, optical and electronic image stabilization, a 3.5" touchscreen LCD, user-assignable buttons, infrared mode, and a DIG!C DV 6 image processor with high sensitivity and low noise.

The camera records UHD 4K30 and Full HD 1080p60 captured to dual SD card slots, and it outputs to a mini-HDMI port. The dual SD card slots allow for automatic switching from one card to another, as well as simultaneous recording to both. The camera can output up to 1920 x 1080p 10-bit 4:2:2 video at 59.94 fps via its mini-HDMI output. On the audio side, the XA60 features up to four channels of LPCM audio in 720p mode with manual/automatic recording levels, two XLR inputs with phantom power, and a 3.5mm stereo mini input. It features a built-in stereo microphone as well as a headphone jack.

Canon 4K Sensor
A 4K sensor and DIGIC DV6 image processor deliver crisp, sharp UHD images, and an 8-blade iris achieves cinema-style out-of-focus highlights. Frame your shot with the ultrabright 3.5" LCD or use the built-in OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF).
On-Screen Display (OSD) "Time Stamp" Recording
OSD recording embeds date, time, timecode, and other data into your original camera files, effectively "time stamping" the information into each frame of video, a requirement for legal and law enforcement videographers.
UVC Livestreaming
Stream HD video directly from the camera via UVC1 to a Windows or macOS computer. Audio output through USB is not supported.
Professional Audio Controls
Two XLR terminals on a detachable handle plus 4-channel linear PCM bring a suite of pro audio options.
4K 20x Optical Zoom Lens
The Canon lens covers a 29.3mm wide angle (35mm equivalent) with a powerful 612mm reach. Digital zoom boosts the 20x optical zoom to 800x magnification. To minimize camera shake, the camera provides Canon's Dynamic IS 5-axis image stabilization.
Fast, Precise Focusing with Face Detection
The X65 features adjustable focusing speeds, and an advanced Hybrid AF system provides fast and precise focusing. Use the ultrabright high-resolution 3.5" LCD to set focus by touching the AF point on the screen. Face Detection AF and Face Tracking are available, while Manual Focus is set via the focus/zoom ring.
XF-AVC and MP4 for Flexible Recording
Choose from XF-AVC or MP4 recording formats. Record XF-AVC 4K UHD 160 Mb/s at 30P and Full HD 45 Mb/s at 60p/60i and 30/24p. For smaller files, record MP4 in 4K 150 Mb/s at 30/24p and Full HD 35 Mb/s or 17 Mb/s at 60/30/24p.
Professional Input and Output
Output options include simultaneous backup and relay recording via dual SD cards and Infrared mode. Record Slow Motion in Full 5x HD or Fast Motion in 4K/Full HD up to 1200x. Color match with other Canon cameras using the custom picture menu.
