Canon XC10 Pro Camcorder

Product Code: 1633145K
A compact lightweight 4K digital camcorder offering many features from the Cinema EOS range, ideal for the independent film maker
RRP £1,599.99 £1,399.00   after £0.00 cashback.


June 2016 Firmware Upgrade

A firmware upgrade to the Canon XC10 in June 2016 adds the following additional features and improvements to this product.

  • AF performance improvement. Double the AF speed without losing any focus accuracy.
  • MP4 video capture to the SD card.
  • Additional shutter speed settings to help reduce flicker in certain environments. (1/30 using PAL, 1/25 and 1/50 using NTSC)

A compact lightweight digital video and still camera offering pro quality 4K  recording, the XC10 borrows many features from the Cinema EOS range and represents an ideal solution as a small stand-alone camera for the independent film maker, or conversely can be the perfect partner in a supporting role within larger productions.

Able to integrate straight into workflows, or productions with existing Cinema EOS cameras, the XC10 records UHDTV standard (3840 x 2160) 4K footage to an internal CFast 2.0™ card (removeable) at up to 305Mbps, or Full HD (1920 x 1080) footage to an SD card at up to 50Mbps, with pro-standard 4:2:2 colour sampling for high resolution performance.

Rich colours, a trademark of the existing range of Cinema EOS cameras, with a high ISO of up to 20,000, ensures consistently excellent results in low light conditions, and a 12-stop Wide Dynamic Range, provides vivid detail in both highlights and shadows.

A specially developed 10x optical zoom lens, complete with Canon's class-leading image stabilisation technology means shooters have the freedom to capture a diverse range of scenes in professional 4K quality, whilst a versatile 27.3-273mm focal range (35mm equivalent, in video mode) means 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 at the touch of a button, capturing high quality 12.0 MP images, or extracting 8.29 MP stills from 4K video footage.

  • Stunning 4K video and 12MP stills from one compact camera
  • High bit rate XF-AVC files, great for post production
  • Seamlessly integrate with professional workflows
  • Get creative with fast and slow motion recording
  • Built-in Wi-Fi for easy browser/smart device control

Park Verdict
A new 4K camcorder from Canon which blurs the lines between pro and enthusiast products, equally at home in the hands of either the XC10 is set to become an essential part of any serious Cinema EOS film makers inventory.
