Designed for users looking for outstanding performance from a mobile body & the XA10 is the first model in Canon’s new XA-series.  Combining an impressive selection of manual controls & professional audio features and signature Canon image quality & the new model is an ideal option for independent operators who shoot on location & or alternatively for owners of larger professional models looking for a compact addition to their existing set-up.

Exceptional image quality
Utilising the latest Canon imaging technologies & the XA10 offers class-leading image quality despite its size.  An advanced Canon HD Camera System & based on the engineering DNA of Canon’s leading XF-series & uses unique Canon optics and an HD CMOS Pro image sensor & delivering outstanding imaging performance from a product that can be taken anywhere.

A Canon HD Video Lens produces supremely sharp High Definition images from a smaller body than ever before.  With a 10x optical zoom & 30.4mm wide-angle and maximum f/1.8 aperture & the XA10’s lens provides the quality and versatility to support all kinds of shooting situations.  A 2x digital extender offers additional reach for situations when a real close-up is required & and an eight-blade iris provides an attractive near-circular background blur & or ‘bokeh’.  To offer even greater levels of wide-angle flexibility & the XA10 is compatible with the new WD-H58W wide adaptor & while existing 58mm adaptors and filters can also be used.

The XA10 features a 1/3-type & 2.07 Megapixel Canon HD CMOS Pro sensor & capturing video at 1920x1080 (Full HD) resolution.  Also employed in Canon’s professional XF100-series & and based on the 3CMOS array in the acclaimed XF300-series & the sensor features pixels that are approximately 2.6x larger than those of conventional CMOS chips found in compact camcorders* – providing greater light-gathering ability for a dramatic improvement in low light performance and dynamic range.

The camcorder’s 1920x1080 pixel image capture means no resizing or interpolation is necessary for Full HD workflow and playback – enabling operators to shoot & process and display footage at native resolution to help ensure the very best quality is maintained. 

The camcorder records AVCHD video at up to 24Mbps – the maximum currently possible within the AVCHD standard.

Professional audio
Professional audio options include 2x XLR inputs, a 3.5mm microphone input jack and a built-in, low-noise microphone. Audio is recorded in 2ch Dolby Digital format using any combination of inputs.

64GB memory plus 2x SDXC slots
The XA10 records Full HD AVCHD video at up to 24Mbps to 64GB of built-in flash memory. Relay Recording across 2x SDXC memory card slots allows for continuous filming. Double slot recording allows the same footage to be stored simultaneously on two cards.

Infrared shooting mode
The XA10 offers infrared (IR) recording in Full HD resolution, for night or low light shooting. Green and white colour options are available to suit the style of your project. Unique Canon lens coatings and a built-in diffuser ensure clear, sharp pictures throughout the frame. An IR lamp is built into the camcorder handle.

Full manual control
A manual lens ring allows intuitive control of focus. Full manual control of exposure, aperture, shutter speed and gain is possible via the Touch-screen LCD. A custom key and control dial put you in complete control of your creativity.

8.8cm LCD; 0.6cm EVF
A large side-mounted 8.8cm (3.5”) Touch-screen LCD with a sharp, 920K dot resolution provides excellent monitoring capability. A waveform monitor and Focus Assist functions make it easy to frame your shot. A 0.61cm (0.24”) 260K dot EVF is also included.

Dynamic OIS, Powered IS, Instant AF
Canon’s advanced Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation system with Powered IS mode ensures shake-free video. Instant AF means pin-sharp focus for every shot.

Versatile and expandable
The ultra compact XA10 is a versatile and expandable camera system – adaptable for use in any situation. The handle is detachable for use in tight spaces and has a stop/start button and zoom level control. A lens filter thread and accessory shoe are also included.
