Canon XF705 and H.265

I have not seen a lot of talk about the new Canon XF705. Has anyone tried uploading the H.265 format into Davinci Resolve 15? If so was it the free version or the paid version? How easy was it to work with? Thanks, Bob

DaVinci Resolve does not have good performance with anything outside of ProRes/DNxHD and similar codecs.

I thought Resolve was one of the few that could do H.265.

Re: Canon XF705 and H.265

I would be surprised if you canít load it into the latest version of Resolve, but H.265 is hell to work with, even in the limited capacity I use it in (10-bit Dlog from the Mavic 2 Pro). If I was going to edit a project with a significant amount of H.265 originated material, I would transcode to ProRes.

Re: Canon XF705 and H.265

Thanks for the information. At this point I am not seeing a lot of reviews on the XF705. And to tell the truth, since my XF300 is in excellent condition, and I have enough CF cards to shoot 12 hours of 1080 422 plus spare Canon batteries I think I will stick with what I have. If in the future I have to replace it and if H.265 hasn't becoming more user friendly I may consider the C200. Bob

Yes, if you're just cutting the heads and tails off a clip, Resolve 15 is probably fine for that.

Re: Canon XF705 and H.265

just saw this new release from Panny. Will make it very hard to spend thousands more on the xf705. it seems to have all the same featrues at $3500 or so. I was surprised that Canon was bringing the xf705 out at $7k. Did I miss something?

The CX350 has 3G-SDI while the XF705 is equipped with 12G-SDI.

I'm not sure that justifies the price difference, however.
