With the XC10 4K Camcorder from Canon, professional UltraHD 4K recording capability is presented in package ergonomically designed for handheld operation and portability. The camera incorporates a 10x f/2.8 to 5.6 SLR-style manual zoom lens with auto and manual focus capability. The 4K recording in a compact form factor is made possible by the camera's 1" CMOS sensor that is backed by a DIGIC DV 5 image processor. With a 4224 x 3164 total resolution, it is able to capture video at up to 3840 x 2160 and 4:3 photos in up to 12-megapixels (4000 x 3000). The 8.9 to 89mm lens yields a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27.3 to 273mm in video mode and 24.1 to 241mm in the 4:3 photo modes. Video is recorded with H.264 compression and packed in the widely supported MXF wrapper. Bitrates 35 and 50 Mbps are available for 1080i/p recording, and there are 205 and 305 Mbps modes (depending on frame rate) for UltraHD 4K.
Top customer reviews
1. The compression is lossy and produces footage that is grainy and not sharp.
2. The non-interchangeable lens is underwhelming.
3. The low-light performance is terrible
4. The camera feels cheap and plasticky and would not last long with moderate to heavy use.
5. Without ISO stabilization in the lens, it is a very poor "walking around" camera.
6. The autofocus is slow, much slower than a Canon DSLR.
7. Requires the use of expensive cards for recording in 4K
I took the camera to Hawaii and it almost ruined the shoot. I've kept it around the studio but it requires so much light we can hardly use it indoors. In reality, my iPhone 6 takes better 4K footage than this camera, is easier to use, and focuses faster. This is a $400 camera, not a $2400 camera.
What's interesting is this camera feels more like a big point and shoot w/ DSLR settings. I have the Canon G1X and I can't stand the G1X's slow shutter speed. XC10 has fast shutter speed like a DSLR but with better video features...but also doubles as a camcorder! I would consider buying it if the price was lower. It's an interesting camera for sure.
