A Canon XC10 palm-sized 4K camcorder that carries on the characteristics of the image aesthetics featured by the Cinema EOS series. Designed for professional videographers who are looking for new ways to capture moving images, the Canon XC-10 echoes the Cinema EOS series in its ability to capture impressive high-resolution 4K video and 12-megapixel still photographs
Canon XC10 Superb 4K image quality
The Canon XC10 encompasses an entirely redeveloped 4K system that consists of a 12-megapixel, 1.0-inch 4K CMOS sensor, 10x zoom 4K video optics, and the latest DIGIC DV 5 imaging platform.
Utilizing Canon Log and Wide DR Gamma, image information in the highlights and shadows are well preserved, enabling the user to get the most out of their 4K image. Canon Log also further provides the user with the creative flexibility to craft their desired ‘look’ in post.
The newly-developed XF-AVC codec is also introduced in order to do full justice to each and every single attractive feature of the 4K video. Images are recorded at a high image quality, and the highest bit rate setting of 305 Mbps brings out the best that the 8.3-megapixel 4K sensor has to offer.
The Canon XC10, measuring at 125 x 102 x 122mm and weighing only 930g, is highly compact, lightweight and mobile. Shooting with a wide variety of angles is possible thanks to the tilt able touch screen LCD. With the camcorder’s compact cabinet and its flexible moving parts, the Canon XC-10 can be easily operated by a single user with a high degree of mobility. Focus accuracy and speed is also increased thanks to the newly-developed 4K video lens, which uses an inner-focus type of lens that contributes to increased AF speed.
For greater convenience, Wi-Fi capability allows for remote operation, including image/video playback, is highly beneficial for mobile news presenters who can easily operate the camera from a tripod using a smart device like a phone or tablet.
High level of compatibility
Broadening the areas of application for the Cinema EOS system range of cameras, the XC10 is a perfect addition with the same inherent high imaging quality of the Cinema EOS cameras in an even more compact form, and it also handles slow & fast motion (1/4x to 1200x normal speed) movie recording.
Canon XC10 is able to capture 12.0-megapixel still images with EOS accessories compatibility. The Canon XC-10 shares its battery and other frequently-used accessories with the EOS series range.
For users who also deal with still images, the Canon XF utility software is able to extract still images of 8.29 megapixel quality from the 4K video footage. The Canon XC10 is thus able to deliver both still and moving images in superb quality.
