Genuine Canon 20x High Definition Optical Zoom Lens
The XA40 Professional Camcorder features a Genuine Canon 20x Optical Zoom Lens that provides a highly versatile zoom range with a 35mm equivalent of 29.3-601mm to help capture newsworthy recordings near and far.

Advanced 4K UHD CMOS Pro Image Sensor with Impressive Low-light Performance
For incredibly sharp and detailed high-definition video recording, the XA40 Professional Camcorder features a 1/2.3-inch, 8.29 Megapixel 4K UHD CMOS Pro Image Sensor that captures approximately 3840×2160 pixels. Thanks to the sensor’s high sensitivity, the XA40 helps provide vivid, accurate recording through an excellent signal-to-noise ratio.

Superb Low-light Performance
Featuring a low-luminance noise rating of +3 dB, the XA40 Professional Camcorder is able to capture clear, sharp images with incredible detail even in low light.

4K UHD and Advanced Full HD Recording Capabilities
Multiple recording modes, resolutions and frame rates make the XA40 Professional Camcorder creatively flexible and adaptable to virtually any news-gathering environment. It can record to an SD card in 4K UHD and Full HD resolutions using the MP4 recording codec, at multiple bit rates- and even record simultaneously.

HDMI Terminal
An HDMI terminal supports FHD 60p output, which can be connected to a standard external SSD/HDD recorder, enabling conversion to ProRes and DNx formats for efficient editing and storage.

Dual SD Card Slots
The XA40 Professional Camcorder features dual SD card slots that are compatible with universal SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards, which provide super-high capacity and ultra-fast data transfer.

Double-slot SD Card Recording for Instant Backup
For safety and convenience, double-slot recording allows you to record simultaneously to each of the two SD memory card slots, providing an instant backup for your footage.

Relay Recording for Continuous, Long-run Recording
With Relay Recording, the XA40 Professional Camcorder automatically switches video recording from one SD memory card to the other when the first memory card becomes full.

Simultaneous Dual Recording
Dual Recording offers format choices that are useful for various post-capture options. The DiG!C DV 6 Image Processor and dual SD card slots enable simultaneous recording the web-ready MP4 format, at different bit rates.

Slow and Fast Motion Recording
Slow and Fast Motion Modes allow the XA40 Professional Camcorder to record a different frame rate than the playback frame rate for a fast or slow motion effect during playback. Since the camera is recording real frames and modifying the playback rate, there is virtually no quality loss and maximum image quality is maintained. Additionally, interval recording allows the user to record frames at specified intervals, providing time-lapse recording of up to 1200x and slow motion down to 0.4x of the original speed.

Advanced Full HD Image Quality
Our Full HD image quality from our XA series camcorder is now even better thanks to Over Sampling HD Processing, which enables Full HD recording by effectively utilizing the outstanding capabilities of the 4K UHD CMOS Sensor.

Outstanding Image Reproduction
The XA40 Professional Camcorder represents Canon’s 4K UHD System, delivering truly excellent image quality and reproduction for most any news-gathering application. With its 20x Optical Zoom Video lens, its 4K UHD CMOS Pro Image Sensor and the powerful DiG!C DV 6 Image Processor working together to capture and process the images at hand, the XA40 is positioned to deliver HD video that is nothing short of stunning

The 3.0-inch 460,000 dot LCD display provides vivid colors and high contrast. A wide-view angle (over 80 Degree at all angles) aids in composition versatility, and regular chromaticity adjustments, which are prompted by the camcorder, help ensure correct brightness and faithful color reproduction.

Electronic Viewfinder
The 0.24-inch tilt-type color electronic viewfinder on the XA40 Professional Camcorder has 100% field of view, and 1.56 million dots of resolution help ensure critical focus adjustment, with peaking applied if necessary. The viewfinder can tilt up to 45 Degree for low-angle shooting. A joystick located to the right of the viewfinder, where the thumb rests, enables control of camera settings on the viewscreen without having to use touch panel controls.

Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization System
The XA40 Professional Camcorder offers a powerful optical image stabilization system suited to help reduce image blur in a wide variety of shooting situations. The different image stabilization options can be selected manually, or Intelligent IS can use an automatic detection system to identify the proper stabilization mode for the situation. Featured on the XA40 is Dynamic Mode, which provides electronic correction of roll and tilt.

Dynamic IS
Used for image stabilization at the wide end, Dynamic IS builds on translational (up-down/left-right) stabilization, adding roll axis correction, horizontal roll correction and vertical roll correction for five-axis correction. Image distortion is substantially reduced, even when shooting while in motion.

Macro IS
Macro IS corrects angular and shift-type shake in wide-angle shots.

Powered IS
Used for image stabilization in telephoto shooting, Powered IS corrects for low-frequency camcorder shake.

Full Manual Control

Custom Key and Dial
A Custom Key and Dial feature allows you to assign functions to an easily accessible key and adjust the settings with a control dial. The functions include:

• Tv/Av: Use the dial to adjust shutter speed (Tv mode) or aperture (Av mode), as needed. In this mode the key has no effect.
• Manual exposure: When manual control is selected, the dial can adjust aperture, shutter speed or gain. Select items to adjust, such as aperture or other settings, with the key.
• Exposure Lock can be set on or off as can the AGC Limit.

Composition Aids
With the Level Marker feature, it’s easy to keep the camcorder level for more accurate framing. The Grid Marker provides a reference grid in your viewfinder. Depending on the background color of your shot, you can choose between two different colors (white or gray) for better viewing contrast.

Gain Control
Gain may be manually set from 0 dB to 24 dB in 1 dB increments. Additionally, Auto Gain Control Limit allows you to set the maximum gain limit for the image sensor’s sensitivity. With this function, brightness and noise can be balanced as required, and image quality can be maximized in low-light situations.

Power Zoom
Power zoom is available in Variable and Constant settings in 3 modes: Fast (approx. 1.9-60 seconds), Normal (approx. 2.5-180 seconds) and Slow (approx. 4.0-285 seconds). To provide added control, there are 16 predefined steps in Constant mode.

Ergonomic, Portable Design
Weighing less than three pounds including the detachable handle, battery and lens hood – and less than two pounds without – the XA40 Professional Camcorder is ideal for high-action shoots when both speed and mobility are essential, and where keeping a low profile is an added benefit. Though small in size, this camcorder sacrifices nothing when it comes to professional functionality. It features a “seesaw” style zoom lever, manual focus/zoom ring and selection switch, a joystick for easy control and an electronic viewfinder that can tilt up to 45 Degree for low-angle shooting. It also has five assignable buttons to help it fit to your operational needs.

Two Phantom-powered XLR Audio Inputs
A stereo microphone is incorporated into the XA40 Professional Camcorder, and two XLR audio inputs with +48 V phantom power is on the detachable handle unit. The built-in microphone supports plug-in power, and provides outstanding audio in fast-paced situations while the XLR inputs provide connectivity to external microphones and other professional audio devices. If you choose, the built-in microphone and XLR input can be used simultaneously.

Audio is recorded in 16-bit PCM format at 48 kHz for amazing quality and fidelity. And both the built-in microphone and XLR inputs have the option for automatic or full manual gain control. To prevent variations in the recorded audio level, the dial can als
