Canon XF205/XF200 Test and Review


Settings unless otherwise stated:

- 1080p25 MXF 4:2:2 50Mbps ungraded
- Shutter speed 1/50
- Gamma Cine1
- Color Matrix Wide DR
- Noise Reduction OFF
- ND Filter Automatic
- Gain 0dB
- Other settings default

Gamma is set to Cine1 as I am always trying to emulate the coveted film look. However, I used the Wide DR color matrix which is meant for Wide DR gamma mode. I should be using Cine1 or Cine2 color matrix but I somehow prefer the colors of Wide DR. Canon's Cine gamma modes seem a little muted in colors to me.

Download video to see the quality more accurately. Vimeo does rather heavy compression.
