Canon XF405 Information

Hello!

I currently have 3 of the Canon Vixia HF G30 cameras and I'm looking to upgrade them to the XF405. Does anyone know if the image quality is better on the 405 than the Vixia's? Also, can you record on the SD cards while outputting from the SDI jack simultaneously?

Thanks!

I do not know how the Vixia performs, however, just looking at the specifications, I am convinced, that the XF405 is the better choice. It is definitely better in low-light situations with its 1"-sensor.
With regard to the question concerning SDI-output: Yes, it can record and at the same time output SDI.

Re: Canon XF405 Information

Thanks for the information!

I also had my eyes on the Sony PXW Z190, but I've seen a lot of bad reviews on this camera about it being bad in low light and horrible image quality. However, I've seen some good ones as well. Another option is the Z150, but I think I read that it doesn't do 60fps in 4K.

I need one that's decent in low light and shoots in 4k at 60fps.

Anyone have experience with the 3 I have mentioned and can offer some advice and which one they think would be best?
