Canon sees the future, and it has 3D written all over it, which is why the Japanese company has decided to include 3D capabilities into their XF305 and XF300 professional camcorders thanks to a new firmware upgrade. This will include Canon’s 3D Assist Function that enables both camcorders to be set up easily for 3D HD video, not to mention an updated Scan Reverse function, Double Slot Recording for instantaneous backup, and the option to disable Relay Recording. With Canon’s 3D Assist Function, it paves the way to setup two XF305 or XF300 Professional Camcorders when used in tandem to shoot 3D HD video. This allows one to perform OIS Lens Shift so that one is able to optically align a couple of XF305 or XF300 camcorders and a Focal Length Guide when it comes to displaying the zoom position of each camera in relation to each other, while helping out in the calibration of zoom settings. The Canon XF305 and XF300 Professional Camcorders will retail for $8,000 and $6,700, respectively, where each purchase will come bundled with a Genuine Canon 18x HD L-series lens, a trio of Canon developed and designed native 1920 x 1080 CMOS image sensors, and Canon’s own XF Codec.
