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. 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 10x optical zoom lens, optimised for 4K capture. The lens has separate manual control rings for focus and zoom selection and features a combined optical and electronic image stabilistation system for smooth, steady images when shooting handheld or on the move (electronic image stabilisation is not available in all shooting modes).
