Built in-ND filter for all-day functionality

With an independent three-density ND filter, your footage will be stunning no matter the time of day. The filter includes a turret mechanism for densities of ND 1/4, 1/16, and 1/64 — all adjusted via the dedicated external buttons. Additionally, Canon Log 3 guarantees videographers can achieve the style and aesthetic they’re after, as do the included User LUTS.

Quick and accurate autofocus

The image-quality guarantee continues with the Canon XF605 Camcorder’s numerous autofocus features. It boasts dual pixel CMOS AF — a first for the Canon XF series — not to mention eye detection AF and iTR AF X technology to use face/head detection and stable subject tracking. Do you need another Canon XF605 Camcorder perk? Try the direct touch control. This feature ensures utmost accuracy and speed when using the camcorder. The zoom lens’ three-ring manual control equally guarantees precision when focusing from any distance.

Perfect for broadcast journalists

A new built-in feature — content transfer mobile (CTM) — lets users gather proxy footage, audio, and metadata that can be transferred to a newsroom through an iPhone app. Additionally, the XF605’s multi-function shoe works with a new XLR microphone adapter for crisp and clear audio with up to four XLR inputs. This is the XF-series’ first camera with USB Video Class, which lets videographers use the camera as a webcam and eliminating the need for a third-party adapter.

Breathtaking bokeh with a nine-blade iris

Few shots direct a viewer’s attention like those focused subjects with dreamy blurry backgrounds known as bokeh. The Canon XF605  Camcorder’s built-in nine-blade iris creates this effect perfectly. The blades generate a circular blurred effect with an odd number of blades to minimize flaring.

The Canon XF605 Professional Camcorder is available for preorder for $4,499.
