All three models feature a newly developed 15x optical zoom lens (35 mm film equivalent: 25.5mm–382.5mm), to support 4K recording. Each has a 1.0-inch CMOS sensor and Dual DIGIC DV 6 image-processing platform that produces stunning 4K/60p recording across the entire zoom range.

The Canon XF405 and XF400 4K UHD camcorders are ideal for applications like broadcast interviews, documentaries, and weddings.

Designed with advanced amateurs and hobbyists in mind, the VIXIA HF GX10 4K UHD camcorder provides the same high-image quality as the Canon XF405 and XF400.

All three camcorders provide fast, highly accurate focusing through intuitive touch-panel control and feature Dual Pixel CMOS AF—a technology that offers smooth Auto Focus (AF) operation with high-tracking capabilities, making it ideal for shooting video.
