Portable and highly compact, the Canon XA55 Professional UHD 4K Camcorder enhances the appeal of the XA range to camcorder users. It is the first model in the XA-series to include a 1.0-type CMOS sensor with fast and reliable Dual Pixel Autofocus technology. The camcorder also features genuine Canon 4K 15x Optical zoom lens which, in conjunction with Super UD elements (Ultra-Low Dispersion), delivers rich image expression with beautiful bokeh and a wide focal length of 25.5mm to 382.5mm. Advanced Full HD Imaging is possible thanks to the inclusion of DIGIC DV6 image processor and Over Sampling HD processing, whilst powerful 5-axis Image Stabilization helps prevent image distortion even during handheld shooting.

Fast and accurate autofocusing in approximately 80 percent (vertical and horizontal) of the image is possible with Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Face detection AF, Face priority AF, Face only AF and touch tracking operation enable seamless focus control for intuitive operation, whilst a Dual Pixel Focus Guide provides a graphical user interface to aid manual focusing. This innovative guide applies Dual Pixel CMOS AF phase-difference technology to assist in achieving the same highly accurate focus.

The XA55 user can also benefit from multi-format recording: with support for XF-AVC and MP4 recording up to 4K UHD at 25P to SD cards; Slow&Fast Motion recording with a maximum speed of 1200x in both 4K and Full HD, and Dual SD card slots that enable relay and back-up recording. The XA55 offers low power consumption with its battery supporting more than two hours of continuous operation.

Professional-quality audio is possible with linear PCM 4-channel audio recording and two XLR terminals, while 3G-SDI terminals provide output in Full HD of 4:2:2 10-bit signal.
