Canon has announced a compact, lightweight video and digital stills camera that provides professional 4K quality and some say signals a convergence of video and stills.

My Quick Thoughts on the Canon XC10

  • It looks well built and likely will take professional use day in day out
  • Uses same battery as many current Canon pro bodies and will offer excellent battery life
  • Price is an issue,  For $2499 you can pick up a Panasonic GH4 and a really nice lens or two.
    • Benefit of the GH4- Huge lens selection and likely better low light quality – especially with fixed aperture lenses
    • Benefit of the XC10- smaller with broadcast quality bit rates

Available in June – Preorder from B&H for $2,499 or Amazon

 Gibbon Falls in Yellowstone. Yesterday was our last day in Yellowstone and we made it out to my favorite tree in my favorite valley again - see the cloud shot on the FB page as our #mondaymorningshare http://photorec.tv/fb On our way back we stopped at Gibbon Falls ~ Captured with the #SonyAlpha #A7Rii + #CanonLens #2470mm via #SigmaPhoto MC-11 adapter and using Nisi 10 Stop ND Filter for a 20 second shutter speed.
 Old Faithful visitor center is a sharp looking building. Photographed a few minutes after #oldfaithful went off - Only in the winter is a desert shot like this possible. ~ Captured with the #SonyAlpha #A7Rii + #CanonLens #70200mm via #SigmaPhoto MC-11 adapter
