The XA15 Full HD Camcorder from Canon is a run-and-gun camera that is suitable for event coverage, ENG, and independent and documentary filmmaking. This camera incorporates SDI, mini-HDMI, and composite outputs. It also features a 1/2.84″, 1920 x 1080 CMOS sensor that is capable of capturing videos at various frame rates up to 59.94p, including a 24p mode for a more cinematic feel. Integrated into it’s construction is a Canon 20x HD optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 26.8 to 576mm, and features an 8-bladed iris to render highlights in a more natural manner.

Another feature is Canon’s Digic DV 4 image processor. This high-speed image-processing engine powers Canon’s Dynamic IS (Image Stabilization) mode reducing image distortion over traditional up-down, left-right image stabilization by adding correction for camera roll in three axes. The power of the Digic DV 4 allows the camera to simultaneously encode your video to two different codecs and bit rates, allowing you to have web-ready versions of your master footage available as soon as you stop recording.

The XA15 features both a 3″ OLED touch panel view screen with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, and a color electronic viewfinder with 1,560,000 dots of resolution. The camera features full manual control and auto modes for exposure, focus, white balance, gain, and shutter speed. The camera provides professional features such as a pre-record buffer, peaking, zebra bars, color bars, and reference tone. The zoom speed is adjustable with variable, constant (with 16 different speed levels), fast, normal, and slow settings. The camera features a detachable top handle with zoom toggle, record start/stop, IR emitter, tally light, accessory shoe, external mic holder, two XLR connectors with phantom power, and manual audio level controls.With two built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slots, this camcorder allows you to record videos to media cards in both slots at the same time. This allows you to create an instant backup copy for archiving and data protection. You can also capture high-resolution AVCHD or MP4 video files on one card while creating a lower data rate MP4 more suitable for the web on the other card. When using two media cards and the camera is in Relay mode and one card becomes full, recording automatically switches to the other card.
