Canon’s first in a new series of digital camcorders has been announced for Malaysia. The Canon XC10 support 4K-resolution video, and is aimed at professional videographers. It also has a very distinctive look that sets its apart from other camcorders in the market.
The Canon XC10 combines four technologies newly developed by Canon to provide its 4K-resolution video capture: a high-sensitivity 1.0-inch CMOS sensor, a 4K video lens offering 10x optical zoom, the high-performance DIGIC DV 5 imaging platform, and the proprietary XF-AVC video format.
It is also capable of capturing high-resolution still images through an approximately 12.0-megapixel 1.0-inch CMOS sensor delivering a maximum ISO speed of 20000, and a mechanical shutter that eliminates rolling shutter skew even when capturing subjects moving at high speed.
The Canon XC does not have a release date or price at the moment, and that information will be revealed closer to its street date.
