Along with the XF305, the Canon XF305 Professional Camcorder represents Canon's entry into professional solid state video acquisition. Following on the heels of its widely respected XH line of tape-based camcorders, the XF305 takes advantage of the latest HD technology-along with Canon's newly developed MPEG-2 4:2:2 codec-to record Full HD video to widely available Compact Flash cards. After shooting some footage on the Canon XF305, you may want to edit them in Final Cut Pro 6/7 or Final Cut Pro X. However, you may also face the problem that FCP 6/7 or FCP X does not recognize the .mxf videos.To make it easier for editing Canon XF305 MXF videos on FCP 6/7/X, you can use MXF to FCP Converter, which was a great Mac Canon XF305 MXF Converter. It can not only convert Canon XF305 MXF .mxf videos to FCP 6/7/X, but also make iteasy for merge videos.
Here is the step-by-step guide for you to convert and transcode Canon XF305 MXF files to Apple ProRes 422 MOV for Final Cut Pro 6 /Final Cut Pro 7/Final Cut Pro X on iMac/MacBook Pro with Mac OS X like Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion now.

Here we choose Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) as output format. (The Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) codec is intended for offline editing and contains 30 percent of the data rate of Apple ProRes 422, and I recommend you to select Apple ProRes 422(HQ), Apple ProRes 422(LT) MOV for outputting.)
