The people at Cinema5D reviewed the new Canon XF405 and posted some sample footage (shot with a pre-production XF405). The Canon XF405 has a 1″ sensor and aims at run&gun news reporters on a budget (it’s $3,499). You can pre-order the Canon XF405 at Adorama and B&H Photo.

From their conclusion:

The Canon XF405 camera has a compact and portable design. The absence of a C-LOG picture profile, ISO settings (dB marking only), and “creative” aspect ratio markers can indicate that this camera was designed to catch the attention of news crews on a budget or independent documentary filmmakers. This camera doesn’t pretend to be something that it is not, and that’s perfectly fine! With proven autofocus capabilities, ease of use, a good lens and those pleasant Canon skin tones, the XF405/XF400/LEGRIA GX10 might appeal to those who are on the run (&gun) but looking for the extra touch when attempting to harness the aid of a large-sensor aesthetic look into their creative productions.
