Canon XC-10 (UHD, 10:1 zoom, 1”)

Canon’s 5D paved the way for still cameras that shoot video. This one is a video camera that shoots impressive stills. If Canon’s XC-10 looks like a mirrorless camera, well, it is. It will be at home on gimbals, drones, rigs, remotes, and anywhere else a lighter, smaller 4K camera with attached zoom lens is requested. Tim Smith called it a “POV and rig camera on steroids.” It’s also a lot more. The XC-10 has a 1-inch sensor and an attached 10:1 zoom lens: 8.9-89 mm f/2.8-5.6. That’s approximately 17.6-176 mm in 35mm Academy Format. It records UHD 3840 x 2160 AVC Interframe 422 8-bit up to 30 fps , 60 fps in HD.

You can shoot 12 megapixel stills, or you can get 8 megapixel framegrabs from the video recording.
