Canon XC10 overview

  • 1Description

Record stable 4K footage with this Canon XC10 Camera with Steadicam Merlin Stabilizer and Vest Kit. The XC10's small form factor enables it to be easily balanced on the Steadicam Merlin. The included vest lets you shoot for long periods of time without tiring, and also provides extra stability and isolation through its spring-arm. See below for more information on the individual items included in this kit.

  • Canon XC10 4K Professional Camcorder

    With the XC10 4K Camcorder from Canon, professional UltraHD 4K recording capability is presented in package ergonomically designed for handheld operation and portability. The camera incorporates a 10x f/2.8 to 5.6 SLR-style manual zoom lens with auto and manual focus capability. The 4K recording in a compact form factor is made possible by the camera's 1" CMOS sensor that is backed by a DIGIC DV 5 image processor. With a 4224 x 3164 total resolution, it is able to capture video at up to 3840 x 2160 and 4:3 photos in up to 12-megapixels (4000 x 3000). The 8.9 to 89mm lens yields a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27.3 to 273mm in video mode and 24.1 to 241mm in the 4:3 photo modes. Video is recorded with H.264 compression and packed in the widely supported MXF wrapper. Bitrates 35 and 50 Mbps are available for 1080i/p recording, and there are 205 and 305 Mbps modes (depending on frame rate) for UltraHD 4K.

    The size of the XC10 lends the camera to run-and-gun applications, such as documentary and many types of event shooting, where the larger form factor of an interchangeable lens cinema camera or DSLR might prove impractical. Another obvious use case for high performance in a small body is mounting on a medium-sized UAV such as a hexa-rotor. The camera features a hot shoe that supports Canon speed lights or works as a standard cold shoe for LEDs, microphones, or other third-party on-camera accessories. Still photos, user settings, and video up to and including 1080p are recorded to SDHC/SDXC memory cards. To handle the up to 305 Mbps bitrate of 4K video there is also a CFast card slot. This unit includes a 64 GB CFast 2.0 card and a CFast card reader for loading your footage into a computer.

    DIGIC DV 5 Image Processor
    Designed and built by Canon the DIGIC DV 5 Image Processor uses proprietary circuits and architecture designed to retain high image quality with minimal compression artifacting even when applying complex compression algorithms such as those required by H.264 - all while maintaining low power consumption and minimal heat output for better battery life and less chance of overheating
    Canon Log Gamma and Wide DR Gamma
    Canon Log records an image with subdued contrast and sharpness, which preserves a high dynamic range and presupposes color grading in postproduction. Canon Log Gamma emphasizes rich gradients from mid-range to highlights, resulting in up to 12-stops of dynamic range

    For those who would rather not grade in post: Wide DR Gamma yields wide dynamic range by suppressing brightness while maintaining gradations but is designed to produce finished-looking images without requiring any color grading in post-production
    100 to 20,000 ISO Range
    With a wide ISO range of 100 to 20,000 - coupled with iris and shutter speed control - the XC10 is able to electronically adjust to a range of lighting conditions, from broad daylight to dimly lit rooms. For those more experienced in the video world, there is also the option to use gain values rather than ISO. Gain can be set in the range of 0 to 42dB. To help avoid excessive noise, limits can be defined for both gain and ISO when using auto exposure modes
    3" LCD Display
    For monitoring, playback, and menu access, the XC10 features a 3", 1,030,000-dot LCD. It features a full 100% coverage so there will be no worries about pesky boom mics or other protrusion creeping into the edge of a shot unnoticed. The screen is capacitive-touch sensitive allowing you to access settings that do not have dedicated buttons provided
    CFast and SD Card Slots
    For every day photo and video capture (up to 1080p), there is an SDHC/SDXC card slot. An SD card can also be used to store user customizations. To accommodate the up to 305 Mbps that 4K video capture requires there is a separate CFast card slot
    720p High Framerate Recording
    Capture either 100 fps for PAL area or 120 fps for NTSC area to create slow-motion effects. These high-speed frame rates are recorded in either 35 or 50 Mbps
    Ergonomic Design with Tilting Grip
    You can always mount the XC10 to a tripod or other stabilization device, but it is designed to be comfortable handheld as well. The handgrip features a photo/video mode selection toggle, record start/stop button, and exposure rotary all accessible by index finger for easy one-handed operation. The grip also tilts up to 90-degrees, helping you to shoot from high or low angles
    SLR-Style Lens Operation
    The 10x optical zoom lens features dedicated focus and zoom rings, providing the feel of a typical DSLR lens

  • Steadicam Merlin 2 Camera Stabilizing System

    Designed by Garrett Brown, the Steadicam Merlin 2 Camera Stabilizing System is a lightweight handheld gimbal stabilizer that lets you capture smooth, professional-looking footage whether you go up or down steps, indoors and out, through crowds, or wherever else the shot takes you. It weighs just 1.4 lb and its counterbalancing weight supports cameras up to 5 lb. The system utilizes a dual extended weight system that increases inertial stability and features a precise Folding-Caliper hinge that lets you fold and unfold the unit without any readjustment in balancing needed. Additionally, a multi-positional lens support platform is provided that adjusts to various heights and angles to help support longer lenses and camera bodies.

    The robust stage design offers a camera mount platform and features a multi-angle-viewable level
    A secure gimbal lock allows for precise tuning
    The lens platform adjusts to various heights and angles to help support longer lenses and camera bodies
    The ergonomic handle affords a comfortable grip for hours without undue fatigue for either right- or left-handed users
    All parts are stainless steel, aluminum, or brass for corrosion resistance
    Optional Merlin Vest and Arm available
    Secure metal interconnect to Merlin arm post

  • Steadicam Merlin Arm & Vest

    The Steadicam Merlin Arm & Vest is an upgrade kit for the Merlin and Merlin 2 camera stabilizers. It fits body types from approximately 50 to 350 lb, and secures by thin hook-and-loop fasteners.

    This upgrade allows the Merlin to operate with a vest and arm for a more professional feel and longer shot capability.
