The Canon XF300 is the newest pro model from Canon–and the company’s first to feature flash memory recording. The Canon XF300 camcorder is a landmark addition to Canon’s professional High Definition camcorder range. Featuring a new Full HD 50Mbps MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec, including a 3CMOS sensor array and 18x zoom L-series HD Video Lens-these revolutionary camcorders bring broadcast-quality HD video within reach of all professional filmmakers. Straightforward workflow integration is key during video production and is catered for thanks to additional 35Mbps and 25Mbps recording modes, industry-standard MXF file format.

Canon XF300 camcorders record high-definition video footages in .mxf format. It’s good to maintain the high quality of the video by using MXF format, but this format is not compatible with editing software and other portable devices. For example, you may encounter many problems when you want to import MXF to Final Cut Pro X on Mac. Just like follow:

“importing .MXF files to Final Cut Pro X

What plug-in do I need to install so i can import and edit .MXF video files in Final Cut. The suggestion of doing Log and Transfer doesn’t work (the .MXF files are gray out not allowing me to select it.) [Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.5.8)]“

To get those MXF files work normally in FCP X without rendering time, the best solution here is to encode MXF to something that FCPX can read easily.
