Canon revs up its entry-level pro ENG camcorders, the XF series, with the XF200 and XF205. Like the XA models they’re built around the slightly-larger-than-1/3-inch (1/2.84-inch) sensor, though they’re effectively 1/3-inch: Canon uses the extra pixels on the sensor for electronic image stabilization, though their new 20X 26.8-576mm f1.8-2.8 lens also has optical stabilization. The body has been redesigned to offer 3 separate controls rings — for focus, zoom, and iris — on the lens barrel. They’re updated to the latest version of Canon’s image processor, the Digic DV 4, which enables dual-codec recording: simultaneous low-bit-rate MP4 (35Mbps) and the company’s XF codec, a flavor of 4:2:2 50Mbps MPEG-2. Utilizing file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF File Wrapper ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. If you use Canon XF200/XF205 for recording videos, you may want to edit them in Adobe Premiere Pro, however, you may sometimes face the problem that Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5/CS6/CC7 does not recognize the MXF files you get.
