Advanced Full HD image processing
Over Sampling HD Processing is an advanced debayering algorithm for image processing that effectively utilises the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording. The camera captures a 4K image, the RGB channels are separated into three individual 8 megapixel 4K signals and the 4K RGB signals are then multiplexed and scaled down internally into a Full HD (1920×1080) signal. This improves the perceived resolution and allows you to record a significantly cleaner Full HD image.
12 stops of Dynamic Range with Canon Log Gamma
For maximum freedom in post-production the built-in Canon Log Gamma captures the maximum range of tones, providing up to 12 stops of Dynamic Range. Widening the Dynamic Range by up to 12 stops enables the extremes of highlight and shadow details to be recorded, thus extending the scope of colour grading.
Capture moving subjects more accurately
Thanks to using Canon’s DIGIC DV5 processor the XC10 has significantly more processing capability than the previous processor, enabling high bit rate 4K movies to be recorded, together with support for Canon Log Gamma and many other key camera functions.
Built-in 10x zoom IS lens for optimised 4K capture
The XC10 is fitted with a built-in 10x optical zoom lens – 27.3-273mm f/2.8-5.6 optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent, and in still mode is 25-250mm) – that’s optimised for 4K capture. The lens has separate manual control rings for focus and zoom selection and features a combined optical and electronic image stabilisation system for smooth, steady images when shooting handheld or on the move (electronic image stabilisation is not available in all shooting modes).
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.
