Variable Frame Rates

The XF105 Professional Camcorder offers a full range of selectable frame rates. You can choose between 60i, 60p, 30p and 24p settings to achieve just the look you want.
  • 60p Frame Rate (Available in 720p Mode Only)
    In addition to the standard interlaced frame rate of 60i, the XF105 is able to capture at 60p. 60p is rapidly becoming the standard for fast-action sports.
  • 30p Frame Rate
    30p is the ideal frame rate for video viewed on the Internet. It is also an excellent choice for frame grabbing during playback.
  • 24p Frame Rate
    24p matches the frame rate of a traditional film camera giving the same cadence and temporal motion needed for a "film look."
Optional 50i/50p/25p Frame Rate Upgrade

For added versatility, the XF105 can be customized to record in both 60i/50i, 60p/50p, and 24p/25p (this optional upgrade must be performed by a Canon Factory Service Center)

Slow Motion & Fast Motion

Slow and Fast Motion Modes allow the XF105 to record a different frame rate than the playback frame rate, resulting in either a fast or slow motion effect during playback. Since the camera is recording real frames and modifying the playback rate, there is no quality loss and maximum image quality is maintained.

In 1080 mode, fast motion is supported up to 2.5x the normal rate and as slow as 1/2.5x. In 720 mode, fast motion is supported up to 5x the normal rate and as slow as 1/1.25x.
