The HD CMOS Pro Sensor combined with Canon’s powerful DIGIC DV4 image processor provides good low-light performance, wide dynamic range and the ability to record Full HD video in 50P at 35Mbps. This compact, lightweight camcorder is small enough to stow away yet agile and powerful to record news events with versatility thanks to a high quality HD CMOS Pro sensor, a superb 20x optical zoom with high zoom ratio and professional interfaces for connectivity into existing workflows.

Canon Native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Sensor

The XA15 features a 1/2.84-inch HD CMOS Pro Sensor with 2.91MP. The large size of the individual pixels enable a minimum subject illumination of 1.0 lux for shooting in low-light conditions.

20x Optical Zoom Lens

The Canon 20x HD zoom lens provides a zoom range with a 35mm equivalent of 26.8 to 576mm, and features an improved circular iris design providing a more natural look with out-of-focus areas that are smoother and more appealing. Zoom speed can be set to variable, constant (with 16 levels), fast, normal, or slow.

Digic DV 4 Image Processor

The DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor works in concert with the sensor to provide images with low noise and rich color depth. The processing power of the Digic DV 4 enables the simultaneous encoding of video to different codecs and bit rates for recording to two separate SD cards at the same time.

Auto Focus

Canon Auto Focus (AF) features include natural-looking medium speed, instant, and face detection AF, which can significantly reduce the effort required when shooters need to keep a particular face in focus in a jostling crowd or similar situation.

Advanced Displays

  • Zebra bars selectable between 70 and 100% are available to help you judge exposure.
  • The XA15 features peaking and 2x image magnification as focus aids.
  • The camera can display and record color bars or color bars with reference tone. The color bars comply with the SMPTE standards. Reference tone levels can be set at -12, -18, or -20 dB.

3″ OLED Touch Panel View Screen and EVF

The 3″, 1,230,000-dot touch panel view screen enables rapidly moving through and selecting menu settings. The Color EVF is a 0.24 inch with 1,560,000 dots of resolution, and tilts up to 45° to accommodate different shooting positions.

Manual Camera Control

  • The XA15 features selectable manual/automatic control on the camera functions, allowing you to choose the best settings for the situation. Functions include: Exposure, Shutter Speed, Iris, Gain, Exposure Lock, AGC Limit.
  • White Balance features six presets (Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten, Fluorescent H, and Fluorescent), as well as two manual white balance settings. Additionally, when specific adjustment of the color temperature is desired, the color temperature may be adjusted in 100K increments from 2000 to 15,000K.
  • The camera’s body features five user assignable buttons so you can customize the camera to access features without having to enter the menu system.

Audio

The XA15 features an integrated microphone, and the detachable handle houses two XLR Line/Mic level inputs with +48V phantom power for connecting external mics. The detachable handle also houses the manual audio level controls. A built-in 3.5mm headphone jack with 16 volume settings provides for accurate audio monitoring.

Outputs

The XA15 features an SDI output, as well as a mini-HDMI port, and an AV mini terminal for composite video (and audio) via a four-pole 3.5mm mini-jack.

Media Card Slots

Two SD/SDHC/SDXC card slots are built into the camera, allowing for varied recording options:

  • Dual recording: Allows you to simultaneously record the same footage to different media cards using different codecs and bit rates.
  • Double-slot recording: Allows you to record simultaneously to each of the two SD memory card slots, providing an instant backup for your footage.
  • Relay recording: The XA15 automatically switches video recording from one memory card to the other when the first memory card becomes full.

Infrared Shooting Mode

Engaging the Infrared (IR) shooting mode moves the IR Cut filter out of the optical path for shooting in extreme low-light conditions. An IR emitter built into the detachable top handle provides an IR source, and the built-in IR diffuser helps prevent IR hot spots on the subject. In IR mode, you can select from the traditional green hued IR image or the default setting, which produces a black and white image.

Wired Connectivity

  • USB: An integrated Hi-Speed mini-USB port allows you to download footage from the memory cards. This port is for output only.
  • Remote control port: The camera features a built-in 2.5mm stereo mini-jack for LANC control.

Detachable Top Handle

The detachable top handle contains the audio controls and external XLR audio inputs, as well as a tally light, the infrared emitter, and an accessory shoe. You can remove the top handle from the camera to create an even smaller shooting package.

Additional Features

  • Photo capture: The XA15 offers the ability to capture 1920 x 1080 still images. Photos may be captured to an SD memory card during recording, as well as “frame-grabbed” during playback.
  • Pre-record: The XA15 continuously buffers approximately three seconds of video in memory. When you begin recording the contents of the buffer memory are added allowing you to capture footage before you press record.
  • Intelligent battery system: The XA15 is compatible with Canon’s Intelligent lithium-ion batteries, which communicate remaining.
