Genuine Canon 20x High Definition Optical Zoom Lens
The XA40 Professional Camcorder features a Genuine Canon 20x Optical Zoom Lens that provides a highly versatile zoom range with a 35mm equivalent of 29.3-601mm to help capture newsworthy recordings near and far.
The impressive image quality is enhanced by an 8-blade Circular Aperture design, which helps to avoid the “starburst” effect of point light sources in non-circular aperture designs. Out-of-focus areas are smooth, natural and appealing.
An endless-type focus and zoom control includes user-programmable direction and sensitivity modes. Zoom speed can be set to either a variable or constant (with 16 levels) speed setting, with Fast, Normal or Slow zoom speed levels.
Advanced 4K UHD CMOS Pro Image Sensor with Impressive Low-light Performance
For incredibly sharp and detailed high-definition video recording, the XA40 Professional Camcorder features a 1/2.3-inch, 8.29 Megapixel 4K UHD CMOS Pro Image Sensor that captures approximately 3840×2160 pixels. Thanks to the sensor’s high sensitivity, the XA40 helps provide vivid, accurate recording through an excellent signal-to-noise ratio.
Superb Low-light Performance
Featuring a low-luminance noise rating of +3 dB, the XA40 Professional Camcorder is able to capture clear, sharp images with incredible detail even in low light
4K UHD and Advanced Full HD Recording Capabilities
Multiple recording modes, resolutions and frame rates make the XA40 Professional Camcorder creatively flexible and adaptable to virtually any news-gathering environment. It can record to an SD card in 4K UHD and Full HD resolutions using the MP4 recording codec, at multiple bit rates- and even record simultaneously.
An HDMI terminal supports FHD 60p output, which can be connected to a standard external SSD/HDD recorder, enabling conversion to ProRes and DNx formats for efficient editing and storage.
Dual SD Card Slots
The XA40 Professional Camcorder features dual SD card slots that are compatible with universal SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards, which provide super-high capacity and ultra-fast data transfer.
Double-slot SD Card Recording for Instant Backup
For safety and convenience, double-slot recording allows you to record simultaneously to each of the two SD memory card slots, providing an instant backup for your footage.
Relay Recording for Continuous, Long-run Recording
With Relay Recording, the XA40 Professional Camcorder automatically switches video recording from one SD memory card to the other when the first memory card becomes full.
Approximate Recording Times
Simultaneous Dual Recording
Dual Recording offers format choices that are useful for various post-capture options. The DiG!C DV 6 Image Processor and dual SD card slots enable simultaneous recording the web-ready MP4 format, at different bit rates.
Native 24p Recording
A must for serious documentary work, Native 24p matches the frame rate of a traditional film camera, giving the same cadence and temporal motion for “film-like” quality.
Slow and Fast Motion Recording
Slow and Fast Motion Modes allow the XA40 Professional Camcorder to record a different frame rate than the playback frame rate for a fast or slow motion effect during playback. Since the camera is recording real frames and modifying the playback rate, there is virtually no quality loss and maximum image quality is maintained. Additionally, interval recording allows the user to record frames at specified intervals, providing time-lapse recording of up to 1200x and slow motion down to 0.4x of the original speed.
