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
