Canon XA11 Professional Camcorder

Canon SKU: 2218C002 | Helix SKU: CA2218C002

Whether recording in government halls, wedding venues, events or corporate environments, the XA11 Professional Camcorder delivers high performance and quality in a powerful, versatile and portable package. 

An advanced HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor, the powerful DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor and a versatile 20x High Definition optical zoom lens with a focal length range of 26.8–576mm combine to produce Full HD content of incredible caliber. The Wide DR Gamma and Highlight Priority modes help ensure a natural range of tones and colors for realistic and eye-catching results. 

Recorded video remains stable thanks to the XA11’s reliable 5-axis image stabilization system. Two XLR terminals mean sophisticated and convenient audio recording on two separate channels. Ideal for a wide variety of applications, the XA11 can open new recording possibilities with its outstanding video quality in a powerful, versatile and portable package.

Genuine Canon 20x High Definition Optical Zoom Lens
The XA11 Professional Camcorder features a Genuine Canon 20x HD Zoom Lens that provides a highly versatile zoom range with 35mm equivalent of 26.8–576mm, and a minimum object distance of just 23.6 inches (60cm) to help capture powerful recordings near and far. The impressive image quality is enhanced by an 8-blade Circular Aperture design, which helps to avoid the "starburst" effect of point light sources in non-circular aperture designs. Out-of-focus areas are smooth, natural and appealing. An endless-type focus and zoom control includes user-programmable direction and sensitivity modes. Zoom speed can be set to either a variable or constant (with 16 levels) speed setting, with Fast, Normal or Slow zoom speed levels.

 

Advanced HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor with Impressive Low-light Performance
For incredibly sharp and detailed high-definition video recording, the XA11 Professional Camcorder features a 1/2.84-inch, 2.91 Megapixel HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor that captures approximately 2136x1362 pixels. Thanks to the sensor's high sensitivity, the XA11 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 XA11 Professional Camcorder is able to capture clear, sharp images with incredible detail even in low light.

 

Full HD 1920x1080 Recording Capabilities
Multiple recording modes, resolutions and frame rates make the XA11 Professional Camcorder creatively flexible and adaptable to virtually any production environment. It can record in Full HD resolution in both AVCHD and MP4 recording codecs, at multiple bit rates, and even simultaneously. 

 

Simultaneous HD- and Web-version Dual Recording
Dual Recording offers format choices that are useful for various post-capture options. The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor and dual SD card slots enable simultaneous recording in AVCHD format and web-ready MP4 format, as well as MP4 at different bit rates.
