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

 I have a hands-on review of the Sony 85mm GM lens - Watch http://photorec.tv/FE85 Spoiler: I am going to shed a few tears when I return this review unit - it is a lovely lens and has been a joy to use on my A7RII. And the 85mm focal length works well for many landscapes too!
 Y'all see this deal? Fast/big card for $40. Don't run out of space when traveling! Visit http://photorec.tv/deals to save.
 I noticed these two hanging out on the floor and asked my daughter to stay still while my niece continued to be a #wiggleworm. Set a slower shutter speed on my #lgg5 and here is the result - Edits in #snapseed
