The perfect companion to CINEMA EOS

Creative and versatile the XC10 captures stunning 4K/Full HD 4:2:2 video and high quality stills in one compact, lightweight and easy-to-use camera with a 10x zoom lens, optical image stabilisation and WiFi remote control.

Unlike its nearest competitors (Sony AX100, Panasonic GH4 and Panasonic FZ1000); the XC records a 4K codec with a bit rate of 305Mbps which is 3 times less compressed resulting in less artefacts and you do not need an external recorder to record 4K unlike the Sony A7S.

The XC10 is ready to shoot and unlike the Black Magic camera, you do not require a full blown rig to start shooting. The beauty of the XC10 is it is small and always ready to go.

Ergonomically and feature wise, it shares many with the Cinema EOS range making it the perfect step from DSLR movie or high end Legria for those who don’t want or can’t afford the jump up to Cinema EOS or those wanting the highest quality 4K/2K movie and stills capability in a small package.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

Increase your creative options with high-quality slow motion recording down to 1/4x speed (HD movies) or capture fast motion up to the highest speed of 1200x (up to 4K

Built-in WiFi enables you to control the camera remotely via a web browser, smartphone or tablet – ideal for when shooting from a drone or when placing cameras in awkward places.

Canon’s XF-AVC is a highly versatile and 4K capable file format that uses the efficient H.264 codec to deliver superior image quality at high bit rates, enabling the XC10 to record 4K footage at up to 305Mbps at 25p or Full HD at 50Mbps at 50p. The newly-developed XF-AVC file format is easily integrated into existing workflows, increasing efficiency in post-production.

Using Canon’s DIGIC DV5 processor, the XC10 has significantly more processing capability than the previous processor, enabling high bit rate 4K movies to be recorded, together with support for Canon Log and many other key camera functions.

Oversampling HD Processing is an advanced debayering algorithm for image processing that effectively utilises the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording. The camera captures a 4K image, the RGB channels are separated into three individual 8 Megapixel 4K signals and the 4K RGB signals are then multiplexed and scaled down internally into a Full HD (1920x1080) signal. This improves the perceived resolution and allows you to record a significantly cleaner Full HD image.
