The Canon XF Camcorders (Canon XF100, XF105, XF300, XF305, EOS C300, C500) feels a bit heavy, but it is no worse than Canon’s tape-based pro models. The camcorders weighs roughly six and a half pounds fully loaded, which can put a burden on your arm during a long day of hand-held shooting. The camcorders does not have a shoulder mount design, but there are definitely plenty of shoulder-braces or various mounts that are available for the camcorder.


The menus have been spruced up on the Canon EOS C300 and they look a lot fancier than on Canon’s previous pro camcorders. The text is much easier to read and the menus are simpler to navigate thanks to the joystick on the handlebar. You can also scroll through the menus using the dial on the back of the camcorder.

In addition to the main menu, the Canon EOS C300 has 13 customizable buttons that populate the surface of the camcorder. Many of these buttons have default settings, but any button that has a number printed on it can be assigned to control a different feature. The most obvious programmable buttons are the VCR controls, which have no use in shooting mode anyway (thus, they are perfect for customizing).
