An interview from the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Jesse Mineo of Canon USA. Canon USA manufactures their Cinema EOS Line of compact, modular cameras designed specifically for cinematography applications, featuring Canon's unique Super 35mm CMOS sensor, revolutionary Canon DIGIC Image Processor, and 50Mbps 4:2:2 recording, in PL and EF-mount options.
In this interview Jesse talks with us about the latest camera from Canon, The XC10 4K Camcorder, which features a compact, lightweight design for convenient 4K/Full HD video shooting & 12 Megapixel digital still photography. This all-in-one ergonomically convenient camcorder can satisfy a broad range of video and still production needs. The XC10 4K Camcorder is for everyone from next-generation advanced amateurs to professional 4K and HD videographers, from digital filmmakers needing a cost-effective 4K/HD "B" or "C" camera to multimedia journalists and news agencies seeking a 4K video camera. The XC10 4K Camcorder also appeals to the needs of cross media professionals in that it can also capture 12 Megapixel still images and provide 8 Megapixel stills extracted from 4K motion video.
The XC10 Camcorder's 4K imaging system is purpose-built of proprietary components, including a Genuine Canon 10x Wide-Angle Zoom Lens with 2x Digital Teleconverter and Optical Image Stabilization. Employing a special Canon compact optical system, the lens offers a zoom ratio of 27.3-273mm for movies and 24.1-241mm for photos. The XC10 4K Camcorder also features a specially designed Canon 12 Megapixel one-inch CMOS sensor that can deliver 12 stops of exposure latitude. And the new DIGIC DV5 signal processor that provides the image-processing power and speed to deliver high image quality, performance and innovative new features like the Canon XF-AVC codec for 4K and HD recording.
Additional operability innovations designed into the XC10 4K Camcorder further facilitate creative expression and the ability to capture superb 4K/HD video and high-resolution still images. These include a Vari-Angle LCD monitor with a capacitive touch-panel for simple intuitive control, a rotating hand grip to support both movie and still-image shooting, a built-in ND filter, built-in dual-band Wi-Fi, and much more. The camcorder can be hand-held, or used with a wide range of camera-support accessories, including car mounts and drones.
