Canon XC10 Professional 4K Camcorder
Advanced Full HD image processing
Over Sampling 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.
12 stops of Dynamic Range with Canon Log Gamma
For maximum freedom in post-production the built-in Canon Log Gamma captures the maximum range of tones, providing up to 12 stops of Dynamic Range. Widening the Dynamic Range by up to 12 stops enables the extremes of highlight and shadow details to be recorded, thus extending the scope of colour grading.
Capture moving subjects more accurately
Thanks to using Canons 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 Gamma and many other key camera functions.
Versatility and flexibility for maximum creativity
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.
Cover all angles: versatile mounting and shooting
With its compact body the XC10 allows for easy mounting in small, high and remote places. Weighing just 930g (body only) the camera is ideal for use with drones, for shooting high quality 4K aerial footage, or with lightweight shoulder rigs.
Built-in 10x zoom IS lens for optimised 4K capture
The XC10 is fitted with a built-in 10x optical zoom lens 27.3-273mm f/2.8-5.6 optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent, and in still mode is 25-250mm) thats 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).
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.
Slow and fast motion recording modes
Increase your creative options with high quality slow motion recording down to 1/4 speed (HD movies) or capture fast motion up to the highest speed of 1200x (up to 4K movies).
Ease-of-use and fast workflow solutions
Record 4K and Full HD video or 12MP stills internally
Record stunning high bit rate 4K movies to an internal CFast 2.0 memory card benefiting from the VPG130 standard, which guarantees a sustained write speed of at least 130Mbps*. Full HD video and 12-megapixel stills can be recorded to a separate SD memory 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.

Compact, ergonomic design for ease of shooting
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, a loupe viewfinder is included.
New XF-AVC format for easy integration
The newly developed and highly versatile Canon XF-AVC 4K capable file format uses the efficient H.264 codec and is easily integrated into existing workflows, thus further increasing efficiency in post-production.
Wi-Fi remote control
The XC10s built in Wi-Fi enables you to control the camera remotely via a web browser, smartphone or tablet its ideal for when shooting from a drone or when youre placing cameras in awkward places.
