Canon’s new XC10 is something to get excited about. It has a very distinctive, professional design…something you’d see on the set of a movie production. The XC10 can shoot 4K and 1080p video at up to 30 fps and 60 fps, respectively. There’s support for both Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160) and cinematic 4K (4,096 x 2,160), bringing it on par with the newly announced C300 Mark II.
Canon XC10 Features
Additionally, this Canon 4K camcorder features a 1-inch, 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, alongside a Digic DV 5 processor, 10x wide-angle zoom lens and optical image stabilization, which will produce very smooth videos.
The Canon XC10 is lighter than many of its DSLRs, perfect for drone shoots. With an ISO range of up to 20,000, a continuous AF mode (with face detection), fast-motion recording, dedicated microphone and headphone jacks, WiFi and support for still photography, there’s no doubt that Canon wanted to make this a top-of-the-line camcorder.
Availability and Price
When it arrives in June, the Canon XC10 will be $2,500 (64GB CFast 2.0 card included), a reasonably affordable price for a camera that’s jam full of professional features.
