I'm new to the forum, have been reading it for 2 years but I have never published any post until today. I purchased Canon XC10 about year ago, And I must say that I'm happy with the camera. I started filming 6 year ago for a hobby with a Sony camcorder. So i think I better understand the principle of XC10. It's not a master production film video camera but it's excelent run and gun camera for filming events or b-cam for bigger indie productions. So it's understandable that those who have always using dslr-s for video don't understand the concept of XC10. Sometimes the bigger sensors cause problems with focus because of much smaller depth of field. This is sometimes downside when you have no time and you have to do quick shot.
The only thing I would add to the XC10 is fixed aperture and servo zoom. Then may be a masterpiece.
I'll share two my video links (from 2 events) in the bottom of article. I tested XC10 for this two videos. Beside XC10 I'm used few more cameras for thoose 2 videos. Panasonic GH3 (with Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens) Sony HvrA1e camcorder (it was one of the first 1080i camcorders from 2005) and Phantom 3 Professional dron (shooted in 4k downscaled to 1080p in post). More or less i used XC10 for steadicam shots (used with Beholder DS1 gimbal). Filmed in 1080p resolution 50fps mxf format and Canon Log picture profile. In post I'm furthermore stabilized all the clips with Warp Stabilizer, so picture is not in full resolution maybe 10 procent zoomed in. I'm colour graded and matched all the cameras clips with Filmconvert. I hope I achieved good result.
I must point out that I am not a professional. I'm dealing with video in my free time.
P.S Sorry for my english grammar!
