  • You do not want to record UHD/4K video to a Secure Digital flash media card, trust me on that, Nuku.

  • Right now it is almost impossible to do good make-up for 4K close-ups. We need to use the soft lenses and digital soft filters and even the old nylon stocking pulled over the lens tricks to make...

  • How about Arri, Imax, Panavision, etc.? will they follow the death of Kodak as well?"

    A: The three companies you had just mentioned are doing better now than they ever had in their long,...

  • Re. the "Cinema 8K video" -- well, there is no such thing. At least not according to the Digital Cinema Initiative folks, and they happen to know a thing or two about what's hip in the world's...

  • What types of an OPTIC are you going to be using to cover this Goliath of a sensor, please? Seriously.

  • Yes indeed, RRJ. According to Red, if a camera does not look like a brick.... then it must be a piece of brick.

  • "Anyone making the upgrade to the Carbon Fiber version will then be able to pay extra to get the forthcoming 8K sensor."

    Wow, you mean to tell me that Red would not let you pay the extra...

  • Great news indeed! Now Canon lenses are only approximately 2.25x the price of what they should be.

  • Nobody should pay more than $1,000 for any 1-inch sensor digital camera, and really, $700 max. for one would be much more reasonable. Particularly considering all the other larger sensor, removable...

  • It is probably d-e-a-d already. In fact, we buried it right here on DP Review.

  • Why pay $2,500 for a crippled half-and-half camera with a remarkably poor lens and a crazy memory card type that can cost you $999 a pop extra?

  • Canon knows precious little about video codecs -- just look at their pricey EOS C-X00 line-up. For Canon, AVCHD and MPEG-2 is fine, just fine. So, this new codec from them -- based on their past...

  • @ AR: " they are focusing on tools for working professionals."

    Well, working professionals won't be working for long, or even classified as professionals, if they end up using consumer camcorders...

  • There are probably 999 better buys for your $$$ or €€€ than this weird one here from Canon. Out of every 1,000 digital camera/camcorder being offered for sale right now, I had meant to say.

  • Why is this XC10 any good for video work, you think? I mean, with a 1-inch sensor and an F5.6 iris lens, you can probably only contemplate using it on brighter, sunnier days outdoors.

    Funny...

  • "all I see is a lens that's f5.6 at 240 instead of f4.0 at 400, a sensor that can't deliver 20mp stills, a body without a viewfinder, a user interface from an elph, and a value proposition that's...

  • Canon and their foolish promos are to blame here, not DP Review. Based on the specs, particularly of the lens and the memory cards used, this one is perhaps an "epic failure." Maybe one day we will...

  • "Potential users of this camera may be upgrading from using smart phones and tablets."

    April Fool's Day was LAST WEEK.

  • "Could you define "convergence" as opposed to "Hybrid" please."

    Gladly. It is when your eyes are seeing the crazy marketing hype promo that some PR firm wrote for Canon -- but your brain refuses...
