Description

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.

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 breath-taking results. Its advanced imaging engine – a powerful combination of a specially developed 1” CMOS sensor and Canon’s new DIGIC DV5 image 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. Able to fit seamlessly into workflows, or productions with existing Cinema EOS cameras, the XC10 can record UHDTV standard (3840 x 2160) 4K footage to an internal CFast 2.0™¹ card 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. 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 12.0 MP images, or extracting 8.29 MP stills from 4K video footage. 

Uncompromising design, optimised for easy shootingThe 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. 

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 to1/4x slow motion in HD – as well as interval shooting provide further creative opportunities. The XC10 is also Wi-Fi 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.

  • 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
