Outstanding HD camcorder


from France

I have used the Canon XF305 during 2 years. The camcorder is really one of the best in its class I have ever used. The main elements that could attract the attention of most videographers are: The lens - it is excellent! The colors and resolution are very nice. I can't compare it with the others in its class. It is the best! Just it! The camera has a very big and flexible 4 inch and high quality LCD screen and viewfinder. The sound quality is superb both from its built-in mic and form the XLR ouputs. The latest firmware update improved already existed excellent sound quality by the way! It has pro connections which put the camera in the line with other pro shoulder mount HD camcorders. And of course its image quality is fantastic thanks to its lens and the codec! I love my XF305 and recommend it to all videographers.

Stunning performance


from United Kingdom

I bought the XF305 originally as a 'B' camera to complement my high end Canon DSLR's and the companies C300. All I can say is the XF305 is far from being a 'B' camera. It clearly matched the C300 in terms of clarity, and using the custom profile feature that all important Cine look is possible, though shallow DOF won't be as shallow. For my style of filming, the 305 offers stunning performance and quality features at an amazing price - well done Canon!

Superb camcorder


from Los Angeles

It is a very nice professional HD camcorder. The image quality is more than expected. I used to have it with an external HD recorder just for compare. Telling the truth I haven't seen any difference in picture quality even at the highest Mbits of the external HD/SDI recorders. The lens quality is very high. The 4 inch LCD and the VF are just superb! Mostly recommended!
