1.0-INCH CMOS SENSOR

The large 1.0-inch Canon CMOS sensor is optimised to deliver high-resolution, high-sensitivity, low-noise images when shooting both movies and photos. Beautifully shallow depth-of-field increases your range of creative expression.

CREATIVE FLEXIBILITY

Enjoy a range of high-quality creative shooting options with Canon’s highly versatile XF-AVC H.264 codec. Shoot stunning 4K video at up to 305Mbps/4:2:2/8-bit, for easy integration into existing 4K workflows or capture high-quality, long-duration Full HD movies at 50Mbps/4:2:2/8-bit.

HIGH-RESOLUTION STILLS AND 4K MOVIE FRAME GRABS

Capture beautiful high resolution 12 Megapixel still images with ease and decide how they will appear and be recorded by selecting one of a variety of different ′look′ settings and adjustment functions. You can also extract and save the best frames from a 4K movie by frame grabbing 8.29 Megapixel stills.

ROOM TO MANOEUVRE

For maximum freedom in post-production the built-in Canon Log Gamma delivers high-quality images with up to 12 stops of dynamic range (DR). Whereas, a Wide DR Gamma often achieves a wide dynamic range of 800% but does not require post-production processing, ideal for when a simple/quick workflow is required.
RECORD STUNNING 4K IMAGES INTERNALLY

Record stunning high bit rate 4K movies to an internal CFast 2.0™ memory card * and Full HD video or stills to a separate internal SD card. Utilise the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording, with higher quality and significantly cleaner results, thanks to Oversampling HD processing.

SUPERB PERFORMANCE IN ANY LIGHT

Capture low-noise footage in all kinds of challenging situations thanks to a high ISO of up to 20,000 that delivers enhanced sensitivity and excellent low-light performance. A built-in ND filter further improves exposure control in bright light or when a wider aperture is required.

10X ZOOM WITH OPTICAL IMAGE STABILIZER

The XC10 is fitted with a fixed 10x 27.3-273mm f/2.8-5.6 optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent in stills mode: 25-250mm), optimised for 4K capture. The lens has separate manual control rings for focus and zoom selection and features a combined optical and electronic image stabilisation system for smooth, steady images when shooting handheld or on the move (electronic image stabilisation is not available in all shooting modes).

COMPACT, ERGONOMIC DESIGN, INCLUDING A LOUPE VIEWFINDER

Compact and lightweight the ergonomically designed XC10 features a rotating handgrip and a large, vari-angle LCD panel so you can easily shoot from a wide variety of angles. A high-quality, capacitive, touch screen allows easy access and control of shooting modes and menus. For more comfortable eye-level shooting, or when shooting in bright light, an optical loupe viewfinder is included.
