Canon XA20 Compact Full HD Camcorder 20x Optical Zoom WiFI 3.5" Touch LCD 24p Support -

The Canon XA20 is a compact, "run-and-gun" HD camcorder with an impressive optical performance from a powerful new Genuine Canon 20x HD Video Lens with a new 8-Blade Circular Aperture, capable of focusing down to just 23.6 inches (60cm). Other features include a 3.5-inch OLED Touch Panel Display with the equivalent of 1.23 million dots of resolution, tiltable electronic viewfinder, multiple HD/SD recording rates - including 24p for a "cinematic" look - together with a choice of industry-standard MP4 (up to 35 Mbps) and AVCHD (up to 28 Mbps) codecs. The high image quality and recording versatility make the XA20 ideal for independent and documentary filmmaking, as well as event videography and educational institutions.
In addition to reducing horizontal and vertical shaking, five-axis SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization eliminates rolling and other artifacts, for sharper images no matter how the camcorder is moved. A new automatic correction circuit can substantially reduce image distortion, thereby producing better-looking videos.
A detachable handle offers increased control functionality, with a built-in microphone holder and XLR-format audio inputs. Infrared shooting with little to zero ambient light offers additional flexibility during, for example, surveillance and wildlife projects; the detachable handle also includes an IR light.
Dual-band, built-in Wi-Fi technology allows easy FTP file transfer and upload to the internet. And intelligent lithium batteries report remaining power and battery-wear levels in one-minute increments to the camcorder, thereby taking the guesswork out of battery management.


  • Ultra-compact Form Factor with Detachable Handle: removing the handle allows the camcorder to be made more compact for convenient storage when travelling.


  • Optional Bluetooth Mic with Two-way Intercom-like Capability: optional Canon WM-V1 Wireless Microphone available. Bluetooth technology allows high-quality audio to be recorded from up to 164 feet away (50m), making it ideal for events, ceremonies, nature recording and other situations that call for unobtrusive sound.
  • Two Phantom-powered XLR Audio Inputs with Manual Gain Control: a stereo microphone is incorporated into the Professional Camcorder, as are two XLR audio inputs with +48V phantom power.
  • Dual SD Card Slots, Using Readily Available, Consumable Media: the camera is compatible with ubiquitous SDHC and SDXC memory cards, which provide super-high capacity and ultra-fast data transfer.
  • Genuine Canon 20x High Definition Optical Zoom Lens: provides a highly versatile zoom range with 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm 576mm, and a minimum object distance of just 23.6 inches (60cm). It also avoids the starburst effect of point light sources in non-circular aperture designs. Out of focus areas are smoother, more natural and appealing.
  • High Definition Peaking for Focus Assist: helps in capturing your subject in razor-sharp focus. It works by providing a 2x magnification of your subject, which is automatically cancelled when you start recording.
  • Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization System with Powered and Dynamic Modes and Auto On/Off: the camera offers an advanced optical image stabilization system suited for reducing image blur in a wide variety of shooting situations. Also featured is Dynamic Mode, which provides electronic correction of roll and tilt.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi Technology with FTP Transfer Capability: enables FTP file transfer to Cloud-based servers for convenient back ups, or for situations where a relay station, such as a news truck, is unavailable.
  • Infrared Shooting Mode for Extreme Low-light Conditions (with built-in IR emitter and diffuser): Infrared Mode allowing the capture of video in conditions with little to no ambient light.
