The new XC10: a compact, 4K/Full HD video and stills camera

The new XC10: a compact, 4K/Full HD video and stills camera

April 2015

Canon has launched the XC10, an innovative 4K/Full HD 4:2:2 video and stills camcorder inheriting many of the Cinema EOS’s range of features along with stunning 12MP stills quality. Offering incredible recording versatility, it is designed as a small, standalone camera for enthusiasts, independent filmmakers or as a supporting B camera in larger productions.

UNLEASHING 4K RECORDING FOR ENTHUSIASTS

Boasting outstanding market leading image quality, traditionally associated with larger cameras, as well as the flexibility and ease-of-use of traditional compact camcorders, the XC10 delivers consistently breathtaking results. Its advanced imaging engine – a powerful combination of a specially developed 1.0-inch CMOS sensor and Canon’s new DIGIC DV5 processor – gives both budding filmmakers or experienced pros the blistering speed and quality they demand to capture 4K video, at a wide range of variable bit rates.

A stunning 10x optical zoom provides an impressive 27.3-273mm (35mm equivalent, in video mode) focal length range.

Able to fit seamlessly into workflows, or productions with existing Cinema EOS cameras, the XC10 can record UHDTV standard (3840x2160) 4K footage to an internal CFast 2.0™* card at up to 305Mbps, or Full HD (1920x1080) footage to an SD card at up to 50Mbps, with pro-standard 4:2:2 colour sampling for high-resolution performance.

The XC10 delivers rich colour, synonymous with Cinema EOS cameras, with a high ISO of up to 20,000, ensuring excellent results in low-light conditions, and a 12-stop Wide Dynamic Range, providing vivid detail in both highlights and shadows.

Shooters have the freedom to capture a diverse range of scenes in professional 4K quality using a specially-developed 10x optical zoom lens, complete with Canon’s class-leading image stabilisation technology. With a versatile 27.3-273mm focal range (35mm equivalent, in video mode) videographers can easily switch between capturing sweeping scenes to intimate close-ups, with a single lens. Pros and enthusiasts alike can change between movie recording and still image shooting, capturing high-quality 12MP images, or extracting 8.29MP stills from 4K video footage.

UNCOMPROMISING DESIGN, OPTIMISED FOR EASY SHOOTING

The XC10 redefines the boundaries of advanced compact camcorder design, with a body that’s instantly intuitive to use. Once in your hand, you’ll find a rotating grip that supports a variety of shooting styles, as well as essential feature controls at your fingertips, including a manual zoom and focusing ring. Designed to match any shooting preference, the camcorder features a 7.66cm vari-angle touch LCD, with 100% field coverage, providing direct access to the menu system through a simple set of cross keys, while an included optical loupe viewfinder, that fits the LCD, offers a more traditional shooting experience.

The XC10’s compact, modular body is palm-sized. Included is an optical loupe viewfinder, which can be fitted for a more traditional camcorder experience.

FOSTERING CREATIVITY WITH EXPERT WORKFLOWS

Professional videographers can easily integrate the XC10 into existing production kits and workflows, thanks to its portfolio of professional standard codecs and recording modes. Canon’s new XF-AVC H.264 codec supports recording in both 4K and Full HD quality, enabling easy integration into industry-standard Non-Linear Edit systems. Canon Log Gamma also enables maximum freedom in post-production editing and processing and seamless quality matching with content shot on Cinema EOS cameras. Additionally, videographers can freely shoot in 4K, and later down convert to Full HD, to create a higher quality end product, and enable greater flexibility in the editing process.

A selection of slow and fast motion recording modes – including up to 1200x fast motion in 4K/Full HD, and up to 1/4x slow motion in HD – as well as interval shooting provide further creative opportunities.

The XC10 is also WiFi compatible; enabling remote control of key features via a browser, smartphone or tablet – securing its position as an essential part of any Cinema EOS video shooter’s toolkit.
