About Canon XA25

The Canon XA25 is a compact, high-performance professional camcorder designed specifically for "run-and-gun," ENG-style shoots with enhanced I/O connectivity. The Canon XA25 offers a unique combination of high-precision optics, outstanding image processing, multiple recording formats, flexible connectivity and intuitive user features. But its compact design does not mean compromised functionality - this small and lightweight camcorder meets the quality and performance standards necessary for use in a wide range of applications, including news gathering, law enforcement and military, education and documentary, among others.

A powerful, all-new Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens with SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization and a new 8-Blade Circular Aperture extends user creativity, while a new 2.91 Megapixel Full HD CMOS Sensor and new DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor capture superb images with outstanding clarity.

The camcorder features both MP4 (up to 35 Mbps) and AVCHD (up to 28 Mbps) codecs at up to 1080/60p resolution for virtually blur-free, high-quality capture of fast-moving subjects. Dual-band, built-in Wi-Fi technology allows easy FTP file transfer and upload to the internet.

A 3.5-inch OLED Touch Panel Display with the equivalent of 1.23 million dots of resolution offers a high contrast ratio, a wide-view angle and high-speed response, while a pair of SDHC/SDXC-compatible card slots enable Relay Recording, double-slot recording and all-new Dual Recording, which enables the XA25 to capture video in different recording formats simultaneously.

An HD/SD-SDI port allows uncompressed video with embedded audio and timecode data to be output to video editors, recorders, news trucks, workstations and other digital cinema/TV hardware, with greater image fidelity than standard HDTV format.

Questions about this item:

ALICE S  What is meant by Ferrite Core? Alice S., Lorton, VA
RANDY B  Ferrite cores are designed to filter high frequency noise in electronics. On this camcorder, there is one on the main charger that plugs into the wall. I don't even use this cable, I always use the batteries. So in short, I don't think you need to be overly concerned about it.
HORACIO C  camera has two SD slots; the battery it comes with only gives you about 60 minutes of actual use; I purchased the authentic Canon large battery and i get three hours of intense use out of that one; time varies depending on what you are doing with the camera... Using wifi and recording two files of different resolutions will drain the battery quicker; you must use the batteries made for the XA25, XA20; the batteries for the G10 will fit but the camera will reject it and turn off. The new batteries give you a very accurate amount of time left on the battery.
