Expert Reviews
6 March 2015

The XF300 uses 3 HD CMOS sensors which capture 50Mbps with 4:2:2 color sampling resulting in true to life colors and excellent detail, recording on cost effective Compact Flash cards.

7 April 2010

The XF300 (and XF305) is the newest pro model to feature flash memory from Canon.

We operate an independent production company and we added the XF300 to our camera inventory four years ago. The short version of this review is this- if you want a reliable workhorse video camera, this is your camera. Now, the longer version. Here are the drawbacks first: 1.

New camera a new job, nobody knows how to convert filmed media into DVD's.

3 July 2016

I have enjoyed this camera so far. Great quality and getting used to using it. Would recommend the camera to others.

18 May 2016

The xf300 video camera is truthfully one of the best video cameras out there, when it comes to recording live events such as weddings this camera is easy to use and amazing picture clarity with a L series lens this camera is a must have for any videographer out there.

28 June 2014

I've worked with this camera for 3 years now. It's an excellent run and gun option for fast-paced field work. The three rings for zoom, iris, and focus are crucial in my opinion, as are the built-in ND filters. The lens quality and zoom are superb.

I had just about given up on MAC Mountain Lion support - - but as usual, Canon came through.A great product!!

I have 2 of these cameras and for overall filming I get really good results. The problems arise in low light and under stage lighting. Under low light there is a lot of noise in the video. Since I get this in both cameras I assume it is normal for this.

    Great sound/audio, excellent image quality, easy to use

  • -

    Poor Low-Light Performance, poor color reproduction under changing conditions

I did some research before buying this camera and I'm glad I is awesome to shoot with ..the video quality is exceptional. Makes my job is robust with features and configuration thing I would like to see is a way to assign a button for wide angle lenses..

03/10/2011 - I've owned the XF300 since August 2010. I tape running events (cross country & track), then edit (with Premier), post the clips to YouTube and then link a team's website to those clips along with written race stories and photos (from frame grabs).

12 January 2012

Coolest camera on Earth. So glad I bought it. This is a professional camera. You'll need to master Adobe Premiere Pro or something equally dense to use it.
