Take a look at a more detailed look into the Canon XA10
A fast, wide-angle, Canon HD Video lens (30.4mm, F1.8) brings professional image quality to a compact camcorder. Features a shockless, variable speed 10x optical zoom and 8-blade iris for more attractive bokeh effect.
An HD CMOS Pro sensor - originally designed and manufactured by Canon for its professional camcorders - captures Full HD at native 1920x1080 resolution. With a pixel size 2.6x bigger than conventional CMOS sensors, it delivers a wider dynamic range and higher sensitivity.
Professional audio options include 2x XLR inputs, a 3.5mm microphone input jack and a built-in, low-noise microphone. Audio is recorded in 2ch Dolby Digital format using any combination of inputs.
The XA10 records Full HD AVCHD video at up to 24Mbps to 64GB of built-in flash memory. Relay Recording across 2x SDXC memory card slots allows for continuous filming. Double slot recording allows the same footage to be stored simultaneously on two cards.
The XA10 offers infrared (IR) recording in Full HD resolution, for night or low light shooting. Green and white colour options are available to suit the style of your project. Unique Canon lens coatings and a built-in diffuser ensure clear, sharp pictures throughout the frame. An IR lamp is built into the camcorder handle.
A manual lens ring allows intuitive control of focus. Full manual control of exposure, aperture, shutter speed and gain is possible via the Touch-screen LCD. A custom key and control dial put you in complete control of your creativity.
A large side-mounted 8.8cm (3.5") Touch-screen LCD with a sharp, 920K dot resolution provides excellent monitoring capability. A waveform monitor and Focus Assist functions make it easy to frame your shot. A 0.61cm (0.24") 260K dot EVF is also included.
Canon's advanced Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation system with Powered IS mode ensures shake-free video. Instant AF means pin-sharp focus for every shot.
