Canon XF105 to ProRes,Edit Canon XF105 MXF clips in FCP with ProRes MOV Codec

Canon XF105 Professional Camcorder can be tailored to fit a wide range of individual needs.The XF105 utilizes Canon's XF Codec – a file-based MPEG-2 compression with an MXF File Wrapper that ensures the widest compatibility with existing industry infrastructure, metadata and non-linear editing (NLE) systems. The codec's 4:2:2 color sampling provides ultra-fine transitions in tone and color for maintaining the highest image quality needed for advanced post production processing.


The XF105's developed Genuine Canon 10x HD Video Lens along with a Canon native 1920 x 1080 CMOS Image Sensor delivers exceptional image quality. The XF105 also offers multiple recording bit rates, resolutions and variable frame rates to expand creative flexibility, allowing users to work in virtually any production environment.


Incorporating industry-standard HD-SDI output, genlock input SMPTE time code input/output terminals makes the Canon XF105 perfectly matched for live application and multi-camera shooting.

Well, if you make the recordings editable before taking to the program, the incompatible error won't happen any more. Here you can download and apply UFUSoft MXF Converter for Mac to achieve the goal effortlessly.
