Canon XF105 First Impressions Camcorder Review


At the Canon Expo in New York City, we got a chance to check out the XF105-a new compact pro model that is loaded with manual controls. Unfortunately, the camcorder is stuck with a single CMOS sensor instead of the three-chip system found on Canon's...

We'd be more considerate to the XF105 if it had loads of new features that we haven't seen before on a pro model. Yes, the camcorder has built-in 3D assistance and an infrared record setting, but those two features don't qualify as "game-changing" or...

Canon XF105 High Definition Camcorder Reviewed


With tons of pro features, a small size and weight, and an aggressive price point, Canon's XF105 is a full-featured HD camcorder that will appeal to a large audience of video enthusiasts.

Tons of functionality, Fantastic picture quality, Extremely sharp LCD panel, Lightweight, great ergonomics

Weak low-light performance, Some controls hard to configure

A Smaller XF100 or XF105? Canon XA10


The XF100 and XF105 were considered the smallest professional Canon camcorders until the Canon XA10 was released on the market. The XA10 is more compact than the previous models, but how does it stack up in regards to usability, functionality and...

First of all, you should know that this camera is made for professionals, but I am sure that won’t stop the tech savvy everyday Joe from purchasing one to do his home videos. The good thing about this camcorder is that it is feature-filled enough to...

Mini-Profi? - Canon XF100 und XF105


Ein 50 Mbit 4:2:2 Codec hinter einem 1/3-Zoll-CMOS-Chip der im Gehäuse von der Größe einer Consumer-Kamera dennoch mindestens 4.000 Euro kosten soll. Kann so ein Konzept überzeugen?

Vor zwei Jahren wäre diese Canon noch ein echter Knaller gewesen. Heute ist sie einfach nur ein sehr kompaktes Arbeitstier, das seine Stärken weniger im szenischen Umfeld, denn im Dokumentations- und News-Bereich ausspielt. Hier wirkt das...

Die XF100/105 ist ein sehr kompaktes Arbeitstier, das seine Stärken weniger im szenischen Umfeld, denn im Dokumentations- und News-Bereich ausspielt. Hier wirkt das Kamera-Konzept grundsätzlich erstaunlich rund. Der fehlende ND-Filter sowie der...
