Features

Record to affordable Compact Flash Cards


Unlike other camcorders which use proprietary memory systems, the XF105 Professional Camcorder records to cost-effective Compact Flash (CF) cards. The camcorder features two CF card slots and offers versatile recording functions including:

Relay recording

When one CF card becomes full, the camcorder automatically switches video recording to the other CF card.

Hot swapping

Media can be replaced without turning off the camcorder. And while recording, the other card can be removed without interruption.

File copy and backup

Files may be copied from one card to the next – ideal for backing up when on location.

Pre Record

Perfect for news crews and live event shooters, the camcorder continuously buffers approximately three seconds of video in memory. When the Record button is pressed, recording begins and the contents of buffer memory are added, so you never miss an important shot.

Double Slot Recording

For safety and convenience, the Double Slot Recording feature allows you to record simultaneously to each of the two CF cards, providing an instant backup for your footage.

File-based recording facilitates workflow by reducing transfer times when moving video to non-linear editing (NLE) systems. Additionally, metadata can be input at image acquisition and imagery may be reviewed immediately after recording to ensure every shot is captured and logged correctly.
