  • Here's the press release:

    MELVILLE, N.Y., September 12, 2017 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced three new additions to the company’s video camcorder lineup: the XF405 4K UHD Video Camcorder, the XF400 4K UHD Video Camcorder and the VIXIA GX10 4K UHD Video Camcorder, three lightweight and compact video camcorders that feature 4K/60p video recording.

    Canon XF405, XF400 and VIXIA GX10 4K UHD Video Camcorders

    The Canon XF405 and XF400 4K UHD Video Camcorders are both ideal for applications like broadcast interviews, documentaries and weddings. Designed with advanced amateurs and hobbyists in mind, the VIXIA GX10 4K UHD Video Camcorder provides the same high- image quality as the Canon XF405 and XF400.

    All three models feature a newly developed 15x optical zoom lens (35 mm film equivalent: 25.5mm–382.5mm), to support 4K recording, alongside a 1.0-inch CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC DV 6 image-processing platform, to produce stunning 4K/60p recording across the entire zoom range. In addition, the compact and lightweight body designs measure approximately 5.3in (l) x 3.8in(h) x 8.4in(d) and weigh approximately 40.5oz, 40.3oz and 40.2oz for the XF405, XF400 and VIXIA GX10, respectively. The compact and lightweight nature of all three 4K UHD models provide great mobility when shooting such scenes as news reports and events.

    All three camcorders provide users with fast, highly accurate focusing through intuitive touch-panel operations and feature Dual Pixel CMOS AF—a technology that offers smooth Auto Focus(AF) operation with high-tracking capabilities, making it ideal for shooting video.

    Pricing and Availability

    The Canon XF405 4K UHD video camcorder, the XF400 4K UHD video camcorder and the VIXIA GX10 4K UHD video camcorder are scheduled to be available in November 2017 for estimated retail prices of $3499.001, $2999.001 and $2499.00.1 respectively. For more information, please visit, usa.canon.com

  • If this camera can deliver enough shallow dof and good low light performance, then there is no reason to carry a mirrorless camera with lots of lenses. a camcorder can be much more practical.

  • Very good feature set. Need to see reviews and try myself.

  • Our interview

  • Great vid. But, 3840x1080? 1:04
    Dude, read up on the whole video thing if you are going to sell your three-year-too late camcorder.

  • I am curious as the whether the CMOS chip is going to compete with the latest Sony stuff....wasn't able to find out much info on the chip.

    Be more easy on the guy. As someone who edited almost all stuff last year I can tell you that even real top guys made much worse accidental mistakes. It is normal for interview.

    I am curious as the whether the CMOS chip is going to compete with the latest Sony stuff....wasn't able to find out much info on the chip.

    All will be around same. S/N will be slightly lower, AF that you use in real life will be much better.

    LSI on Canons is much more modern. Actually it seems like this is that we will see in 2018 Cinema DSLR.

  • But is it BSI type hybrid or just a better version of the "Pro CMOS" on 1080p camcorder? Which was a good camcorder three years ago, but no 4K.

  • @DrDave

    Have no idea and do not care much.
