Canon Announces New XF200 Compact ENG Camera

Canon has announced a new compact hand-held traditional ENG-style camcorder. XF200 is an update to the XF100. About 6 months ago Canon released the XA20 compact camcorder for just over $2,000. Many people thought it was odd that the XA20 actually outperformed the more expensive XF100 camera which sold for about $500 more. The XF200 now rectifies that. The basic design of the XF200 is nearly identical to the XF100. However Canon has added some of the most desirable features from the XA20. This includes a 20x zoom lens (up from then 10x on the XF100) and Wi-Fi network control for the camera. Other changes include adding separate lens rings for focus, zoom, and iris (compared the XF100 single multi-fiction ring), adding a rotating hand grip, and adding internal mpeg-4 recording for situations where you need a smaller signal. As is typical with the Canon ENG cameras there will also be an XF205 version that will feature HD-SDI output, timecode, and gen-lock for studio use. The XF200 is expected to start shipping by the beginning of summer for $3,499. The XF205 will be selling for $3,999. Post by Eric C. Petrie.
