Canon XF105

Honey, the shrunk the Canon XF305. The new XF105 and XF100 Camcorders are Canon’s smallest professional camcorders. They share most of the same features as their 41% bigger bigger siblings (XF305 and 300) — MPEG-2, 4:2:2, 50Mbps. 2.5 lbs. Single 1/3″ CMOS sensor. 10x zoom (30-304 35mm equiv). The 105 has HD-SDI out and genlock/timecode. You can connect two of the XF105 cameras together for 3D work, and a menu setting lets you control fine zoom lens adjustments with the internal stabilization circuitry. Infrared low-light mode lets you shoot in almost complete darkness, in either traditional nightvision green or monochrome. Two CF slots. Estimated cost is $5000 and 4000 for XF105 and XF100–shipping around January.
