Detailed Features

  • 20x zoom wide angle Canon HD Video Lens

    Capture more than ever thanks to the XA25’s stunning new 26.8mm wide angle lens. A 20x zoom gets you closer to the action, while Dynamic Optical Image Stabilisation compensates for shake in 5 directions to provide ultra-steady images. f/1.8 maximum aperture, an 8-blade iris and EDM technology enable beautiful ‘bokeh’ effects.

  • 1/2.84” HD CMOS Pro sensor

    With an effective pixel count of approximately 2.91 megapixels, the new Canon HD CMOS sensor delivers stunning picture quality – even in low light – as well as outstanding dynamic range and realistic colour reproduction.

  • 8.77cm (3.5”) OLED touchscreen and tiltable EVF

    Despite its compact size, the XA25 provides high-quality monitoring. An OLED touch screen with a 1.23 million dot resolution offers better response times, definition, contrast and colour reproduction than LCD equivalents. A 0.61cm (0.24”) 1.56 million dot EVF can tilt up to 45° to accommodate different shooting positions.

  • Dual-Format Recording

    A next-generation DIGIC DV 4 processor expands your options. AVCHD video can be recorded at up to 28Mbps in 1080/50P, whilst for maximum quality a 35Mbps 1080/50P MP4 recording mode is available. Inclusion of two SDXC/SDHC memory card slots allows simultaneous recording¹ of high-quality HD and lower resolution MP4 files for easier file transfer – ideal when a quick turn-around of footage is needed. Fast and slow motion recording options are available in MP4 modes.

  • Professional audio and connectivity

    Two XLR terminals provide professional audio inputs, supporting high quality linear PCM recording². An easily accessible HD-SDI port allows connection to industry-standard broadcast equipment such as satellite transmission systems.

  • Infrared shooting

    Thanks to the infrared light source built into the handle, this camera can easily be used at night or in low ambient light conditions – ideal for the wildlife videographer.

  • Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS compatibility

    Transfer footage wirelessly using an iOS phone or tablet, or via FTP at up to 150 Mbps³. Remotely control camera functions through a Wi-Fi enabled device – no apps required. Location data can be recorded using an optional GPS accessory.

  • Compact, lightweight body

    This discreet camera is ideal for shooting in sensitive or confined environments and its lightweight body reduces fatigue during extended periods of hand-held filming.¹Simultaneous recording not available in 1080/50P recording modes²Linear PCM audio available in AVCHD 28Mbps recording mode only³Wireless internet access point required for FTP file transfer
