Take a look at a more detailed look into the Canon XA30
20x zoom wide angle Canon HD video lens
Capture superb quality footage thanks to the XA30's stunning and versatile 26.8mm¹ wide angle lens. A 20x zoom gets you up close 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.
Improved 1/2.84" HD CMOS Pro sensor
The newly developed Canon HD CMOS Pro sensor achieves an effective pixel count of approximately 2.91 megapixels to deliver stunning Full HD picture quality. With increased sensitivity and an improved signal-to-noise ratio, low light images in particular appear cleaner with reduced noise.
Flexible new image settings
Two new picture settings help you achieve even more impressive results. Wide DR mode gives you a 600% dynamic range, resulting in bright images with high contrast that retain detail in both highlight and shadow areas, without the need for post-production. Highlight Priority mode reproduces footage with more natural tones, richer colours and detail particularly in areas of high brightness² perfect for scenes with bright skies and reflective surfaces.
8.77cm (3.5") OLED touchscreen and tiltable EVF
Despite its compact size, the XA30 provides high-quality monitoring. An easy-to-use OLED touch screen with a 1.23 million dot resolution offers faster response times and superior definition, contrast and colour reproduction compared to LCD equivalents. A 0.61cm (0.24") 1.56 million dot EVF can tilt up to 45° - easily accommodating a range of shooting positions.
