1/2.84” HD CMOS Pro sensor
The Canon XA35 features a large 1/2.84” HD CMOS Pro sensor that captures approximately 2136x1362 pixels. The sensor features an improved low-luminance noise rating of +3 dB when compared to previous models, this greatly improves detail when shooting in low light.
Genuine Canon 20x HD Zoom IS Lens
The XA35 Professional Camcorder features a Genuine Canon HD Zoom lens with 20x optical zoom and image stabilisation. The lens covers a wide 35mm equivalent focal length of 26.8–576mm, and features a minimum focus distance of just 60cm to help capture a great variety of subjects, as well as a 8-blade circular aperture design to make out of focus areas/subjects look pleasant, and 5-axis image stabilisation to reduce unwanted camera shake and blur.
DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor and Full HD video recording
Canon's DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor captures and processes images data at blistering speeds to enable Full HD video recording at 60 frames per second while ensuring accurate colours and low levels of noise.
The XA35 Professional Camcorder amplifies convenience with an HD/SD-SDI terminal, whether streaming directly to a broadcast van or connecting to a recorder to make high-quality video recordings for archiving purposes. Designed for professional broadcast use, HD/SD-SDI output provides an uncompressed signal at 1920x1080 resolution with 4:2:2 color sampling and embedded audio and time code.
Video Standard: SMPTE 292M (1080i/720p)
Embedded Audio Standard: SMPTE 299M
Time Code Standard: SMPTE 12M
Video Standard: SMPTE 259M (480i)

Wide DR Gamma (600%)
For natural and realistic-looking image capture that faithfully represents the scene at hand, the XA35 Professional Camcorder features a Wide DR Gamma mode. By suppressing overexposure in high brightness areas of the composition, this mode helps achieve a wide dynamic range of 600% to produce seamless tone gradations, resulting in smooth detail, accurate colour and virtually no blown-out highlights.
Highlight Priority Mode
The XA35 Camcorder features a highlight priority mode that reduces the mid- to high-brightness compression of the standard gamma mode. This helps to prevent loss of detail in high brightness areas when shooting in very bright or high contrast conditions.
Infrared shooting mode for extreme low-light conditions (with built-in IR emitter and diffuser)
The XA35 Professional Camcorder features an Infrared Mode allowing the capture of video in conditions with little to no ambient light. Improved from the XA25 and XA20, it can shoot at brightness levels that are approximately 1.4 times more sensitive, and makes low-light capture capable by removing the infrared cutoff filter from the optical path. Its specially designed lens coating allows the infrared light to pass through to the image sensor. Additionally, the detachable handle of the XA35 features an infrared emitter with a diffuser to shoot appealing infrared imagery even in complete darkness. For nighttime videographers or law enforcement users, the benefits of a compact, high performance camcorder for shooting in such conditions are obvious. Without the need to add lights, the shooter can save time on set-up, or remain hidden from subjects. Also, the XA35 gives the option of recording in white or green mode.
Built-in stereo microphone, two XLR audio inputs with +48 V phantom power, and a 3.5mm headphone terminal
A stereo microphone is incorporated into the XA35, as are two XLR audio inputs with +48 V phantom power. The built-in microphone 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 also be locked.
The XA35 also includes a 3.5mm headphone terminal with 16 volume settings for accurate audio monitoring.
A detachable handle provides the user with expanded audio performance and added flexibility. Removing the handle allows the camcorder to be made more compact for convenient storage when travelling. Included on the handle are the following terminals, controls and monitors:
- Two built-in XLR audio input terminals with phantom power
- Accessory shoe (cold)
- External microphone holder
- Manual audio level control
- Zoom control and record start/stop button
- Infrared light
- Tally lamp
3.5-inch OLED Viewscreen with 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio
A 3.5-inch, 1.23 million dot equivalent Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display provides vivid colors, high contrast and dramatically improved responsiveness compared to traditional LCD screens. 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.
A 0.24-inch tilt-type color electronic viewfinder on the XA35 Professional Camcorder has 100% field of view, and 1.56 million dots of resolution help ensure critical focus adjustment, with peaking applied if necessary. 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.
