The Canon XA50 Camcorder is a compact, lightweight camera featuring UHD 4K capture, a 1" CMOS sensor, two XLR audio inputs, and one mini-HDMI output which fits right into the ENG category for documentary or journalism-style productions.

The XA50's optics include an integrated 15x HD optical zoom and a nine-bladed circular iris for more natural highlights, and wide DR gamma support for low-light recording. The camera's pro-style features include Dual Pixel and Contrast autofocus, fast- and slow-motion recording, full manual control, optical and electronic image stabilization, a 3" touchscreen LCD, user-assignable buttons, infrared mode, and a DIG!C DV 6 image processor with high sensitivity and low noise. The XA50 also has display monitoring features such as zebra, colour bars, and test tone and a built-in neutral density filter mechanism offering ND4, ND16, and ND64 options.

The camera records UHD 4K30 and Full HD 1080p60 captured to dual SD card slots, and outputs to mini-HDMI. The dual SD card slots allow for automatic switching from one card to another, as well as simultaneous recording to both. The camera can output up to 1920 x 1080p 10-bit 4:2:2 video at 50 fps via its mini-HDMI output. On the audio side, the XA50 features up to four channels of LPCM audio with manual/automatic recording levels, two XLR inputs with phantom power, and a 3.5mm stereo mini input. It features a built-in stereo microphone as well as a headphone jack. The camera's functions can also be controlled by the separately available RC-V100 remote control.

Over Sampling HD Processing

Canon's renowned Full HD image quality has been improved thanks to Over Sampling HD Processing. It enables high-resolution Full HD recording by effectively utilizing the outstanding capabilities of 4K image expression in Full HD recording.

Excellent image quality

The professional XA50 features a 1.0 inch CMOS sensor and supports 4K UHD 25P recording with a wide 25.5mm angle of view as well as 15x optical zoom. Take your output one step further with the independent built-in 3-density ND filter.

Wide DR Gamma Support

The Wide DR gamma smoothly compresses high brightness areas to offer a wide dynamic range of 800%. This enables seamless tone gradations and suppresses overexposure while maintaining continuity with the gamma curve.

Fast and accurate autofocus

The XA50 features Canon's breakthrough Dual Pixel CMOS AF for wider area autofocusing. It also offers continuous AF within a horizontal and vertical range of the screen of approximately 80%. It provides a highly accurate face detection AF, which assists during single-operator shooting. Users can also use the touch panel to move within the distance-measuring area for AF shooting with an adaptable framework.

Touch autofocus and tracking

The touch panel enables smooth, intuitive operation of Dual Pixel CMOS AF. When using this in combination with the face detection AF, users can customise the camera to their shooting needs. With touch tracking, simply touch the screen once to track a subjects' movements while keeping them in focus.

Never miss an opportunity

Realise even greater emotion in visual expression with slow (max 0.5x) and fast (max 1200x) motion recording for both 4K and FHD.
