Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization System with Powered and Dynamic Modes and Auto On/Off
 
Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization System with Powered and Dynamic Modes and Auto On/Off
 
The XA25 offers an advanced optical image stabilization system suited for reducing image blur in a wide variety of shooting situations. The different image stabilization options can be selected manually, or Intelligent IS can use an automatic detection system to identify the proper stabilization mode for the situation. Featured on the XA25 and new to Canon Professional Camcorders is Dynamic Mode, which provides electronic correction of roll and tilt.
 
 
New Dynamic IS
 
 Used for image stabilization at the wide end, Dynamic IS builds on translational (up-down/left-right) stabilization, adding roll axis correction, horizontal roll correction and vertical roll correction for five-axis correction. Image distortion is substantially reduced, even when shooting while in motion.

Macro IS
 
Macro IS corrects angular and shift-type shake in wide-angle shots.

Powered IS
 
Used for image stabilization in telephoto shooting, Powered IS corrects for low-frequency camcorder shake.
 
Full Manual Control
 
Custom Key and Dial
 
A Custom Key and Dial feature allows you to assign functions to an easily accessible key and adjust the settings with a control dial. They include:
 
Tv/Av: Use the dial to adjust shutter speed (Tv mode) or aperture (Av mode), as needed. In this mode the key has no effect.
Manual exposure: When manual control is selected, the dial can adjust aperture, shutter speed, or gain. Select items to adjust, such as aperture or other settings, with the key.
Exposure Lock can be set on or off as can the AGC Limit.
 
Composition Aids
 
With the Level Marker feature, it's easy to keep the camcorder level for more accurate framing. The Grid Marker provides a reference grid in your viewfinder. Depending on the background color of your shot, you can choose between two different colors for better viewing contrast.
 
Gain Control
 
Gain may be manually set from 0 dB to 24 dB in 1 dB increments. Additionally, Auto Gain Control Limit allows you to set the maximum gain limit for the image sensor's sensitivity. With this function, brightness and noise can be balanced as required, and image quality can be maximized in low-light situations.
 
Power Zoom
 
Power zoom is available in Constant and Variable settings in 3 modes: Fast (approx. 1.960 seconds), Normal (approx. 2.5180 seconds) and Slow (approx. 4.0285 seconds). To provide added control, there are 16 predefined steps in Constant mode.
 
Ergonomic, Portable Design
 
Weighing less than three pounds including the detachable handle, battery and lens hood and less than two pounds without the XA25 is ideal for high-action shoots when both speed and mobility are essential, and where keeping a low profile is an added benefit. Though small in size, this camcorder sacrifices nothing when it comes to professional functionality. It features a new seesaw style zoom lever, manual focus/zoom ring and joystick for easy control, and an electronic viewfinder that can tilt up to 45 degrees for low-angle shooting. It also has five Assign Buttons to help it fit to your operational needs.
 
 
Two Phantom-powered XLR Audio Inputs with Manual Gain Control
 
A stereo microphone is incorporated into the XA25 Professional Camcorder, as are two XLR audio inputs with +48V phantom power. The built-in microphone provides exceptional audio in fast-paced situations while the XLR inputs provide connectivity to external microphones and other professional audio devices. If you choose, the built-in microphone and XLR input can be used simultaneously.
 
 
Audio is recorded in 16-bit PCM format at 48 kHz for amazing quality and fidelity. And both the built-in microphone and XLR inputs have the option for automatic or full manual gain control. To prevent variations in the recorded audio level, the dial can also be locked.

The XA25 also includes a 3.5mm headphone terminal with 16 volume settings for accurate audio monitoring.
 
Ultra-compact Form Factor with Detachable Handle
 
A detachable handle provides the pro shooter with expanded audio performance and added flexibility. Removing the handle allows the camcorder to be made more compact for convenient storage when travelling. Included on the handle are the following terminals, controls and monitors:
 
 
Two built-in XLR audio input terminals with phantom power
 
Accessory shoe (cold)
 
External microphone holder
 
Manual audio level control
 
Zoom control and record start/stop button
 
Infrared light
 
Tally lamp
 
High Definition Peaking for Focus Assist

Focus and Exposure Aids
 
To enhance focusing capability, the XA25 provides Focus Assist. It includes enlargement, which helps in capturing your subject in razor-sharp focus. It works by providing a 2x magnification of your subject, which is automatically cancelled when you start recording. Also included is color peaking, which shows the shooting object's focused areas in actual colors.
 
Assignable Buttons for Custom Shooting
 
The XA25 is endowed with five assignable buttons so that the camcorder can be tailored to the specific preferences or needs of the user.
 
 
Button 1 is preset as AF/MF; it can be set to: Powered IS, BLC Always On, Face Only AF or Video Snapshot.
Button 2 is preset as Pre REC; it can be set to: WB Priority, IR Light, Audio Output CH, AF/MF or Rec.
Button 3 is preset as Rec Review; it can be set to: Review, Shooting Mode, BLC Always On, White Balance or AGC.
Button 4 has no preset; it can be set to: Limit, Focus, Exposure, Audio Scene, Microphone Level or Zoom.
Button 5 has no preset; it can be set to: Image Stabilizer, Image Effects or Wi-Fi  Remote.
 
Infrared Shooting Mode for Extreme Low-light Conditions (with built-in IR emitter and diffuser)
 
The XA25 Professional Camcorder features an Infrared Mode allowing the capture of video in conditions with little to no ambient light. It does so by removing the infrared cutoff filter from the optical path. Its specially designed lens coating allows the infrared light to pass through to the image sensor. Plus, the power of the infrared light is enhanced by 2.7 times compared to that of the XA10 camcorder. Additionally, the detachable handle of the XA25 features an infrared emitter with a diffuser to shoot pleasing infrared imagery even in complete darkness. For nature videographers or law enforcement users, the benefits of a compact, high performance camcorder for shooting in such conditions are obvious. Without the need to add lights, the shooter may remain hidden from subjects. Also, the XA25 gives the option of recording in green or white light mode.
 
 
Connectivity
 
Not only does the XA25 Professional Camcorder provide the professional user with complete control over the image, it also provides complete creative freedom when it comes to inputs and outputs, including:
 
HD/SD-SDI Output (see dedicated section for more details)

Remote Control Terminal (compatible with LANC protocol)
Accessory Shoe (when handle is attached)

Optional Bluetooth Mic with Two-way Intercom-like Capability
 
The XA25 is compatible with the optional Canon WM-V1 Wireless Microphone. Bluetooth technology allows high-quality audio to be recorded from up to 164 feet away (50m), making it ideal for events, ceremonies, nature recording and other situations that call for unobtrusive sound recording. With earphones attached, the WM-V1 Wireless Microphone can also be used as a two-way intercom, enabling more creative control, such as when discreetly providing an on-camera subject with direction.

Advanced Display Features: Zebra, Color Bars and Test Tone
 
Either color bars or color bars and test tone can be selected and recorded. The color bars comply with the SMPTE standard. -12 dB, -18 dB or -20 dB can be selected as the test tone.
 
Enhanced zebra pattern (70% or 100%) indicates ‘blown out’ or high brightness areas to help you set the proper exposure.
 
The white balance control has six available presets selectable through a variety of day and artificial light conditions (Daylight, Shade, Cloudy, Tungsten, Fluorescent H, and Fluorescent), as well as two manual white balance settings. Color temperature may also be manually set from 2,000K to 15,000K in 100K increments for more precise adjustment.
 
Additional Features
