The Canon XA15 Professional Camcorder is great for both capture and transmission, excellent for the dynamic world of Electronic News Gathering (ENG) as well as journalistic, documentary, corporate and higher education video production.

Featuring an advanced HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor, a powerful DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor and a phenomenal 20x High Definition optical zoom lens, the XA15 camcorder captures expansive, high-quality Full HD video. Its HD/SD-SDI terminal lets it quickly and reliably transmit uncompressed video with timecode and audio embedded directly to broadcast vans and workstations. Combining a lightweight design, a 1.56 million dot electronic viewfinder and a 3.0-inch capacitive touch panel LCD, the XA15 is comfortable to operate for extended periods of time and in numerous environments.
