Canon XA30 Professional Camcorder is an ultra-compact HD video camera, well-suited for event coverage, wedding videography, independent and documentary filmmaking. The camcorder incorporates a 1/2.84-inch HD CMOS pro Image Sensor which delivers superb Full HD video recording with minimal noise. The sensor offers enhanced sensitivity for improved low-light performance over the previous model.

The XA30 is able to captures up to 1920 x 1080 video at 23.98p, 29.97p, 59.94p and 59.94i frame rates while it also offers Slow and Fast Motion recording modes as well as an interval recording option to capture fast motion of up to 1200x the original speed. For monitoring it sports 3.5-inch OLED Touch Panel view screen with a 10000:1 contrast ratio, and a color electronic viewfinder with 1560K dots of resolution. The XA30 includes a built-in Wi-Fi, headphone jack, mini-HDMI connector and outputs composite video and audio via a 3.5mm four pole mini jack.

The camcorder comes with a 20x Canon optical zoom lens with a versatile 35mm equivalent range of 26.8 to 576mm. It features an eight blade iris design providing a more natural look, out of focus areas are smoother and more appealing.

The XA30 also flaunts two built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slots allow you to record video to available media cards in both slots at the same time. You can also remotely control select camera functions from a smart phone or tablet over Wi-Fi, freeing you from remote cables. Other professional features include pre-record buffer, peaking, zebra bars, color bars and reference tone.
