Re: Guide to Canon XF series Camcorders -- instruction manual downloads and much more

I have the PAL XF300.

Typo: DiG!C DV III - Should be DIGIC DV III I got this off of CANON Specs here: Inside the Canon XF305 & XF300: examining the technology and its benefits - Canon Professional Network

Framerates and the 2011 Updates: Up to you, but I think your comparison chart would need at least a nod in the direction of PAL? Framerates etc. Here's an update you might want to consider amongst the info, "Owners of any Canon XF-series professional camcorders – the XF305, XF300, XF105 and XF100 models – that have been bought in Europe now have the opportunity to upgrade the frame rate options on their camcorders.

The frame rate upgrades are available via five key European Canon Regional Competence Centres (RCCs) in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden. Each individual ‘PAL’ XF-series model can be upgraded to include the additional frame rates of 1080/60i, 1080/30p, 1080/24p, 720/60p and 720/24p.
"

I got it from here: Extra frame rate options for Canon XF-series camcorders - Canon Professional Network

Cheers

Grazie

Grazie, many thanks.

Funny as it may seem, "DiG!C" is actually correct. See attached. See also: Digital Imaging Integrated Circuit (often styled as "DiG!C")

I greatly appreciate your suggestion regarding the PAL frame rates and I'll find a way to work that in.

Heavens, how staid.

The poor soul who wrote that copy needs to loosen his cravat!

The "!" isn't just exclamatory, it's fun, and crucial, I guess, in a formal corporate branding sort of way.

Look, they even print it right on the chip:
