Canon just announced a slick new piece of hardware for all the budding filmmakers out there. The XC10 is a compact, 4K video camera that can shoot full, cinema-grade Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160) to a CFast or SD memory card. Some of the other features include a 1″ 12 megapixel sensor; fixed 10x optical zoom lens with built-in image stabilization; a tilting, touch-enabled LCD display; and an optical viewfinder loupe attachment. It also performs extremely well in low-light thanks to a 20,000 ISO option.
The Canon XC10 4K Camera will release this June for a reported (and attractive) price tag of $2,500 USD.
