The XA40 Professional Camcorder

For fast performance in both capture and transmission, excellent for the dynamic world of Electronic News Gathering (ENG) as well as journalistic, documentary, corporate and higher education video production, look no further than the XA40 Professional Camcorder.

ALC: Canon Introduces 4 New Professional Camcorders for a 24-Hour News Workflow & On-The Go Video Production

Before NAB 2019 kicks off in Las Vegas, Canon is announcing four exciting new camcorders to their existing professional lineup. The Canon XA40 and XA45 are new offerings for journalists and broadcasters, while the XA50 and XA55 have creative video production capabilitiesFeaturing an advanced 4K UHD CMOS Pro Image Sensor, a powerful DIG!C DV 6 Image Processor and a phenomenal 20x High Definition optical zoom lens, the XA40 camcorder captures expansive, high-quality 4K UHD video. Dual SD card slots that are compatible with universal SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards provide super-high capacity and ultra-fast data transfer.

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.

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.

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° 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.

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.

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° 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.

Connectivity to Various Inputs and Outputs
