Many of us felt that the Canon XC10 was a bit too much of a “me too” product that didn’t appear to stack up compared to the competition. However, Canon sometimes pulls through on pleasing images and color-science. Not enough reviews have been done of this camera yet but footage is starting to come out.
Johnnie Behiri has provided a review of the Canon XC10 that does not sing it praises. It’s not that this camera is without merit, but on the whole, and with its current price tag, it’s not quite where it should be.
All in all I would expect a market leader like Canon to deliver a more solid product especially when the price tag is so high for what it is. I can sum up that working with the XC10 was simply tiring for me. Too much menu fiddling and “worries” about staying in focus but hey, who said that the way to produce nice looking images should be easy…
Resource Online has an article titled Why Canon Needs to Rethink Their Ridiculous Pricing on the C300 Mark II where they compare the Canon C300 Mark II against the Blackmagic Ursa, Sony FS7, and the Red Scarlet. An interesting read and comparison of these more costly video cameras.
