Our Verdict

The addition of the Canon XA70 to the pro Canon camcorder range combines professional features including live-streaming via USB-C with a computer, into a portable camcorder for videography, ENG and more. A 1.0-inch 4K sensor is capable of recording XF-AVC 4K UHD 160Mbps at 25P, as well as oversampled HD using the full sensor area. Canon has also included their quick and accurate Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which includes face detection and face tracking to keep your subject pin sharp even when moving across the frame.

5-axis optical stabilisation helps to keep footage smooth which works seamlessly with Canon’s optical zoom lens. This offers an equivalent full-frame focal range of 25.5-382mm enabling you to capture video from within tight spaces to far more distant subjects. Professional audio can be recorded using two the two XLR terminals, which are found in the detachable handle, and 4-channel linear PCM provides a digital representation of the analog signal. Image quality is consistently high as expected from the professional Canon camcorder, with a range of video options to suit. If you don’t need 3G-SDI output the XA70 makes perfect sense over the XA75 as the two cameras are identical in virtually every way.
