For smaller-scale or mobile productions the XF305 and XF300 offer a unique combination of image quality, affordability and compact form factor, allied with extensive customisation options to suit individual users.

Straightforward workflow integration is key during video production and is catered for thanks to additional 35Mbps and 25Mbps recording modes, industry-standard MXF file format and compatibility with all of the major NLE software packages.

The potent combination of outstanding image quality, connectivity options, user customisation, straightforward workflow and wide-ranging editing compatibility means the XF305 and XF300 set a quality benchmark that will appeal to a wide range of users. These include freelance camera operators, broadcast professionals, filmmakers, electronic news gatherers, high-end enthusiasts and creative industry professionals who will appreciate an affordable, forward thinking solution to their film-making needs.
