Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

I wonder if a 400/405 is coming?

Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

So much for my theory of the next camera being 4K. This definitely has my attention for a possible B camera to my 305 though.

Well the XF400/405 could quite possibly be a 4K camera. The GH4 is 4K. One can only wonder.

Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

This camera is a bit expensive and while a step up from past canon camcorders, it is behind with some of the others. I'm thinking that Sony's 4k camcorder may be a better deal.

Any thoughts???

Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

Here is a very interesting take on 4K that should be looked at. It is well woth the time.

Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

That was a pretty informative presentation. I like being reassured that I am doing the right thing by not jumping on the the 4K bandwagon.

Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

I'm still trying to get people to buy Blu Ray DVDs. Lol

I think it will be quite some time before we have any significant 4K market penetration.

4K delivery on USB sticks etc or download will probably be where it's at.

Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

I might be the only person but I hope if an XF400/05 comes that it is NOT 4K. Something like the XF300 that can shoot images as sharp as a C100 would be just fine thank you Canon.

Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

I'm actually satisfied with everything my 305 can do. The only things I would be looking for on future models would be super slow mo. And I'm not talking 720 at 60 frames, I would want something comparable to what the FS700 can do.

Some great deals on XF100/105 at the moment, provided you don't need the extra zoom reach or AVCHD output options

Re: Canon XF205 Professional Camcorder

This 205/200 seems like a nice compromise from the 105 I had. The slo mo on this is a nice added feature, still has the mxf and yet adds the mp4, not sure why I would use that though. I never was a fan of the Iris ND ring over the mechanical nature of my C100 and xf305.I'm finding I don't use the 305 as much as I used to (for reasons only related to the type of work I'm doing now), and might see a use for still having an ENG system but smaller. This seems to fit just fine. My investment in CF cards stands, I still have 4:2:2 and long run recording, and can likely marry it up with my C100 and Ninja if needed. I would have liked a longer throw Tele on this though.
