Product Features in Detail

20x zoom wide angle Canon HD Video Lens
Capture more than ever thanks to the XA25’s stunning new 26.8mm wide angle lens. A 20x zoom gets you closer to the action, while Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation compensates for shake in 5 directions to provide ultra-steady images. f/1.8 maximum aperture, an 8-blade iris and EDM technology enable beautiful ‘bokeh’ effects.

8.77cm (3.5”) OLED touchscreen and tiltable EVF
Despite its compact size, the XA25 provides high-quality monitoring. An OLED touch screen with a 1.23 million dot resolution offers better response times, definition, contrast and colour reproduction than LCD equivalents. A 0.61cm (0.24”) 1.56 million dot EVF can tilt up to 45° to accommodate different shooting positions.

Professional audio and connectivity
Two XLR terminals provide professional audio inputs, supporting high quality linear PCM recording. An easily accessible HD-SDI port allows connection to industry-standard broadcast equipment such as satellite transmission systems

Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS compatibility
Transfer footage wirelessly using an iOS phone or tablet, or via FTP at up to 150 Mbps³. Remotely control camera functions through a Wi-Fi enabled device – no apps required. Location data can be recorded using an optional GPS accessory.

1/2.84” HD CMOS Pro sensor
With an effective pixel count of approximately 2.91 megapixels, the new Canon HD CMOS sensor delivers stunning picture quality – even in low light – as well as outstanding dynamic range and realistic colour reproduction.

Dual-Format Recording
A next-generation DIGIC DV 4 processor expands your options. AVCHD video can be recorded at up to 28Mbps in 1080/50P, whilst for maximum quality a 35Mbps 1080/50P MP4 recording mode is available. Inclusion of two SDXC/SDHC memory card slots allows simultaneous recording¹ of high-quality HD and lower resolution MP4 files for easier file transfer – ideal when a quick turn-around of footage is needed. Fast and slow motion recording options are available in MP4 modes.

Infrared shooting
Thanks to the infrared light source built into the handle, this camera can easily be used at night or in low ambient light conditions – ideal for the wildlife videographer.

Compact, lightweight body
This discreet camera is ideal for shooting in sensitive or confined environments and its lightweight body reduces fatigue during extended periods of hand-held filming.

Electronic Viewfinder
The 0.24-inch 45-degree tilt-type color electronic viewfinder on has approximately 100% field of view and 1,560,000 dots of resolution. It helps ensure critical focus adjustment, with peaking applied if needed. You can easily adjust the settings of the camera on the viewscreen without having to use the panels via the joystick located to the right of the viewfinder.

Capture Image while Recoding
Tthe XA25 is capable of capturing 1920 x 1080 still images. Photos may be captured to an SD memory card during recording, as well as “frame grabbed” during playback.

Intelligent Battery System
The XA25 is compatible with Canon’s Intelligent Lithium-ion batteries. These batteries communicate remaining running time down to the lat minute.In this way, the user can utilize the camera down to its last breath.

Advanced Image Stabilization
The XA25 offers an advanced optical image stabilization system suited for reducing image blur in a wide variety of shooting situations. It’s capable of automatically identifying the suitable stabilization mode depending on the situation of the recording. Different image stabilization options are also available and can be selected manually. Another feature of the XA25 is its Dynamic Mode, which has electronic correction of roll and tilt.
