    • Canon XC10 versus Sony RX10 III. The Canon is underrated!
      I think one thing that is significant but has not been discussed at all is the issue of stealth. Most people see you shooting with the XC10, with its tiny form factor, they just think you're doing a few snap shots.  They have no idea you're shooting high quality, robust 4k. Pick up a camcorder like the X70 and all of a sudden that's an attention getter and can cause problems in certain instanced in public.  No one ever bothers me with the XC10...
    • Petition for Samsung NX1 hack
      Vaga, ihkim posted about the nx protocol, and the canon ef one is well known. What should be done is a "conversion" chip, able to perform in real time.   You can read from here on: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57372604   and here, with google translation, if needed: http://www.mydiyworld.net/
    • Canon XC10 versus Sony RX10 III. The Canon is underrated!
      Hey Toms, I just received my XC10 a couple days ago and had my first go with it yesterday. Since you seem pretty experienced with it and c-log, I have a question or two you may be able to help me with. You seem to appreciate the 4K coming out of this camera... Why wouldn't you... It's gorgeous. But as Andrew's review states, the 1080p is some of the best around with some added features like the 5-Axis ibis and auto functions. So, with that being said, I edit only in 1080p, is it better to shoot with the more robust codec of the 4K and convert to 1080p before I edit, or just shoot in 1080p? Also, I am new to c-log, and I thought you were supposed to ETTR c-log, but with my zebras set to 100, most ETTRd footage ended up overexposed without the latitude to pull it back down in post. ETTC consistently looked good, but I don't want to limit my DR if there is a better way... Any tips?
    • Canon XC10 versus Sony RX10 III. The Canon is underrated!
      I shot Sony cams for a decade. I still own an X70, and it is a fine camcorder, very good 1080, but image, color, and grading can't come close to the XC10---not even close; dynamic range, robustness of codec, stabilization, usability in most instances, etc--not even close. In reality, they are apples and oranges, like all cameras, with strengths and weaknesses unique to them, but for high quality 4k footage you can grade, is super LUT friendly, etc, the XC10 is a bargain--- the x70 is not even close with its 4k at 60 mbps.

      Exactly. This is almost totally a video camera with the courtesy of photos in a pinch. But once you load in some  Canon Log footage to your NLE at 305mbps, see how robustly grades, how sharp and clean the Log image can be made, how beautiful the colors are, and how it sits well along side of the C300 mk II image---you feel fortunate you can get a camera for under 2k that will produce an image that grades and looks like that. I do lots of talking head educational videos, and skin tones and skin color is gorgeous, with beautiful detail without looking harsh. The outdoor video---for a person with skill it makes beautiful landscape shots and anything you want, and it's surprisingly good in lower light---and with a small amount of effort it creates beautiful DOF shots with beautiful Boca. The reason you can shoot 4k with these other cams is because their bit rates are cruddy, 8bit --that fall apart. The XC10 does all this high bit rate 422, etc, IN camera--no rig, nothing to schlep around. With the XC10 you'll be getting high quality footage while the rigged up people will be fiddling with equipment and not coming out with footage that can approximate the XC10. Rigs are a burden and an albatross. Why schlep them around--just to look "professional?" You'll never appreciate this camera by looking at some cursed piece of paper. For someone with a degree of skill, who loves beautiful color, and sharp clean imagery, this seems an ideal camera for all sorts of purposes. Highly underrated, especially by those who have never taken the time to really try it. Image and color and grading compared to Sony---the Sony doesn't can't even come up to the plate.
