Top-level HD Camcorder!

Looking for a professional HD camcorder? The Canon XF300 offers world-class performance, recording straight to affordable CompactFlash cards. Three Canon Native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Image sensors and a genuine 18x HD L-series lens deliver premium performance. What's more, the Canon XF300's 4:2:2 color sampling provides twice the color resolution of HDV and other codecs that use 4:2:0 color sampling, so you'll enjoy extremely fine transitions in tone and color with your Canon XF300 - perfect for production processing such as chroma keying, color grading, and more.
