Canon’s XC10 4K Digital Camcorder is a compact, lightweight and versatile solution that delivers 4K
and Full HD video as well as 12-megapixel stills. The camcorder also has a built-in function to
extract 8-megapixel still images from recorded 4K video. The XC10 includes a 1-inch, 12-megapixel
CMOS sensor, with a 10x wide-angle zoom lens with a 2x digital teleconverter and Optical Image
Stabilization. The XC10’s sensor delivers up to 12 stops of dynamic range.
The XC10 uses two new codecs: XF-AVC Intra for 4K and XF-AVC Long GOP for Full HD recording.
It can record in Canon Log Gamma, Wide DR or EOS Standard picture modes for increased versatility
in color correction, and allows for greater ease in matching looks with footage from other cameras
within the Cinema EOS camera system.
The XC10 camera is expected to be available in June for an estimated retail price of $2,499 with
SanDisk 64 GB CFast 2.0 card and card reader.
