Combining a compact form factor, professional video features, and an HD-SDI output, the PAL Canon XA35E is well-suited for "run-and-gun" ENG productions, event coverage, corporate videos, and other applications that require a compact, broadcast quality camera. Please note that this camera is designed for European broadcast systems and is not compatible with NTSC systems. It is equipped with a 20x Canon optical zoom lens with a versatile 35mm equivalent range of 26.8 to 576mm, and features a 1/2.84" HD CMOS Pro sensor with enhanced sensitivity, for improved low-light performance over the previous model. To fit into your workflow, the camcorder captures video up to 1920 x 1080 at 25p, 50p, and 50i, while also offering Slow and Fast Motion recording modes, with the option of interval recording for capturing fast motion at up to 1200x the original speed. In addition to the standard gamma recording mode, the XA35E offers Wide DR and Highlight Priority Gamma modes. Wide DR compresses high brightness areas to achieve a wider dynamic range of 600%. This not only helps suppress overexposure, but also produces smooth gradations in highlights and shadows, all while maintaining a finalized look that eliminates the need for post-production processing. The Highlight Priority Mode gives an HDR-like quality to your video by reducing the amount of highlight and mid-tone compression on the gamma curve, helping to maintain highlight exposure. The mode also enhances brightness and saturation for more faithful color reproduction. A View Assist Mode is available to support this mode, enabling you to more accurately monitor what the final images will look like.
