The Canon XC10 is a hybrid 12 megapixel photo and 4K video camera. Designed to be able to quickly and confidently switch between high quality photos and video, the XC10 inherits features from Canon’s EOS and Cinema EOS range to give independent filmmakers, journalists and content creators a single jack-of-all-trades tool for virtually all their shooting requirements.

Compact Design

Measuring less than 13cm in every direction, its size is ideal for run-and-gun style projects. The uniquely designed body features a camcorder style grip which swivels, enabling you to adjust your composition quickly and accurately without compromising comfort and access to the camera controls.

Tilting 3-inch LCD Touchscreen

A 3-inch 1030k-dot capacitive LCD touchscreen is housed at the rear of the body for intuitive menu navigation. Its tilting design is combined with the swivelling hand grip to provide ergonomic comfort and framing accuracy when shooting extremely high or low angles.

Its boxy design combined with the tilting LCD allowing you to comfortably shoot from hip height, providing medium format styled ergonomics for stills and video.

Includes Direct Viewfinder

The included direct viewfinder attaches to the LCD, transforming the camera into a more classically styled camcorder or DSLR. Using prism optics, the direct viewfinder shades and magnifies the LCD to provide better focusing and framing precision while improving overall clarity during playback when shooting in extremely bright conditions.

1-inch CMOS Sensor

A specially developed 1-inch CMOS sensor is paired with a dedicated DIGIC DV5 image processor to capture detail rich 4K Ultra-High Definition footage and true-to-life 12 megapixel stills.

305Mbps XF-AVC Format 4K Video Support

It’s Ultra-HD recording* supports up to 29.97fps and are saved using the XF-AVC codec at an astonishing 205Mbps* or 305Mbps bit-rate. This offers superior versatility in post-production, enabling you to edit, colour and apply special effects to your footage while maintaining maximum image quality.

ISO160 – ISO20000

Delivering 12 stops of dynamic range, you can be confident your photos and videos will feature exceptional colour reproduction. Its broad ISO160 - ISO20000 sensitivity range allows you to shoot in low-light scenarios with minimal noise.

Built-in Cinema EOS Colour Profiles

A range of profiles inherited from the Cinema EOS range including Canon Log Gamma, Wide DR and Canon’s still-picture styles are available integrate easily into your existing workflow. This can save substantial time and improves accuracy in post when combining footage with other Canon EOS cameras.

10x Optical Zoom

The 10x optical zoom lens is designed specifically for 4K shooting. Delivering a 35mm equivalent focal range of 24.1-241mm for stills and 27.3-273mm equivalent for video enables you to shoot a broad range of subjects. Capture wide, sweeping landscapes or zoom in to capture intricate detail or far-away events.

Optical + Electronic Image Stabilisation

Optical and Electronic Image Stabilisation is built-in to deliver silky smooth video and ultra-sharp detail throughout the entire focal range. Dynamic, Standard and Powered image stabilisation modes enable you to customise the IS behaviour to best suit your shooting scenario.

Built-in Neutral Density Filter

A built-in neutral density filter allows you to make use of the maximum f/2.8 aperture of the lens, without compromising your shutter speed, even in broad daylight.

Hot Shoe + External Microphone Support

Rounding out its comprehensive feature list, the Canon XC10 features a hot-shoe mount on top of the camera which supports a range of Canon speedlites and 3rd party accessories such as a shotgun mic or video lights. A 3.5mm microphone input and a stereo mini jack output is also available to ensure optimum sound and audio monitoring.

* Note: 4K Video Recording requires CFast 2.0TM memory card.
