Re: Canon announces C300 Mark II, XC10 and new codec XF-AVC

With Canon it's always a bunch of people looking for that one reason to make the product stand out from its peers and when it is not Canon it's always a bunch of people looking for that one reason to make it a no-go.

While we still need to see more real world footage from the XC10 to see how it actually performs (I only have seen one sample video from Canon so far which did show some not so good highlight handling) but 2,5K is a very steep price for a hybrid camera with such a slow lens at the tele end and as I understand it doesn't take raw photo's either. Not sure who is going to spend this amount of money considering what the competition is offering, 1,5K would be a more reasonable price

Chris, I think you should split the discussion into two right now, before it becomes bloated and difficult if not impossible to follow.
Yes, please, Chris, do this.
This thread is becoming difficult to follow. I'm never sure which camera someone's talking about.

Re: Canon announces C300 Mark II, XC10 and new codec XF-AVC

I'm one of the suckers sniffing around the XC10. I'm not happy about the price, not sold on the look, and not crazy about the f/5.6 at the tele end, but I'm still at least a little bit interested.

Presumably the price will decrease soon. We'll see.

The thing is, I don't have a 4K camera and I'm heavily invested in Canon, so the XC10 seems like a natural gateway drug. I suppose anyone who already has a C100 or C300 Mk I or even a 5D2 or 3 might be thinking the same way -- "I can use my C100 for most things. I can't afford a 1DC or C300 Mk II. For the rare times I need a 4K solution, there's the XC10. It's not as good value as an FZ1000 or GH4, but the colours should match more easily, and that's really important to me."

Anyone who has Canon DSLRs will likely have a lot of LP-E6 batteries lying around, so that helps also.

Sounds like time for a Canon 4K sub-forum, in that case...

Re: Canon announces C300 Mark II, XC10 and new codec XF-AVC

Okay folks, per your suggestions this thread has now been split into two different directions...

So at this point you can pick up the XC10 / XF-AVC conversation here (it's a full copy of this thread minus the C300 Mark II posts):

Canon announces XC10 and new codec XF-AVC

Or the C300 Mark II discussion here (which is all of the previous C300 Mark II posts, merged with an existing C300 Mark II specs thread):

C300 Mark II announcement discussion

See you in those threads... thanks everybody!
