New 4K camcorders from Canon: XA60/65, XA70/75 and LEGRIA HF G70

New 4K camcorders from Canon: XA60/65, XA70/75 and LEGRIA HF G70

[15:00 Wed,7.September 2022   by ]    

Canon is launching four more professional camcorders - the XA60, XA65, XA70 and XA75 - as well as the LEGRIA HF G70 prosumer camcorder. These are official successors to the (still) current models XA40/45/50/55 as well as the LEGRIA HF G50. The new camcorders also have a lot in common with these models.


There are still integrated zoom lenses, double SD card 8 BIt 4:2:0 recording (in 4K up to 25p), XLR inputs (+ 4 channel audio) and 3G-SDI outputs. The new models now mainly get additional functions for streaming, which is now a highly demanded application segment for professional camcorders. The display has also been enlarged and made brighter, the viewfinder has been made foldable and the USB-C port can be used for power supply.

All new XA models are equipped with the DIGIC DV6 image processor and feature a 1/2.3-inch type CMOS sensor (XA65/XA60), or a 1.0-inch type CMOS sensor (XA75/XA70). With a KB-equivalent focal length of 29.3-601mm, the XA65/XA60 offer 20x optical zoom and the XA75/XA70 offer 15x optical zoom at 25.5-382.5mm. All professional models support 40x digital zoom, extending the zoom range to 800x on the XA65/XA60 and 600x on the XA75/XA70.


XA75/XA70 models are equipped with Dual Pixel CMOS AF which, in conjunction with Dual Pixel Focus Assist, also facilitates manual focusing of a subject. XA65/XA60 remain equipped with a Hybrid AF system. All models offer adjustable focus speed for fast or steady autofocus, which can also be controlled via the 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen, with the focus point set simply by touching the screen. Face detection AF and face tracking are also available. All camcorders also feature manual focus, which can be set using either the lens control ring or the switchable zoom/focus ring on the XA75/XA70. A 5-axis image stabiliser is said to ensure steady, blur-free shots.


The new XA cameras support two format containers: XF-AVC 4K UHD at 160 Mbps at 25p (primarily for broadcasting) or a universal MP4 container at 150 Mbps at 25p in 4K UHD. They are capable of recording in 4K UHD and Full HD in very good quality through oversampling. The camcorders also offer other recording options such as slow motion and time lapse, on-screen display recording where the date and time is superimposed on the video image, and an infrared mode for recording in the dark.

For professional sound recording, the XA65/XA60 and XA75/XA70 have two XLR audio inputs / 4-channel linear PCM for adjusting the recording level and input sensitivity.


The new camcorders can stream HD video via UVC via USB-C through a PC. All models still have an HDMI output and allow simultaneous (backup) or continuous recording to two SD cards, with the "5 models" XA65 and XA75 additionally offering a 3G-SDI output.

Thanks to output via HDMI and USB-C, the LEGRIA HF G70 can also be used as a fully-fledged webcam for high-quality video conferencing and sharing content on the internet. There are also special recording modes, including Night Mode, Superimposed Information Recording and Audio Scene Select Mode, which enables sound recording tailored to the recording environment.


The LEGRIA HF G70 has been further stripped down for prosumers and is the closest thing to an XA60 without XF-AVC recording and SDI and XLR connections.

All new models are expected to be available from October 2022.
The XA75 at an RRP of €2,999,
the XA70 at an RRP of 2,399 euros.
the XA65 at an RRP of 2,299 euros,
the XA60 at an RRP of 1.699 Euro, and the
the LEGRIA HF G70 at an RRP of 1,199 Euros.
