Canon today releases a new firmware update for the High Definition XF camcorder series. The new version of firmware (18.104.22.168) supports besides of existing the additional 1440 x1080 35Mbps recording format. This format is especially popular with news broadcasters so the change is actually desirable in devices which are touted by Canon as “designed to produce video files compatible with most production and broadcast environments”.
Together with the firmware update, Canon provides XF Utility 1.3 Updater for both Windows and Mac based systems and a new plug-in for Final Cut Pro X and Final Cut Pro 7.
