Papiskokuji Posted September 13, 2017 Share Posted September 13, 2017 Hi guys ! I just bought an XC10 but i'm still in the 14 days of trial so I can return it if I want to. I got the camera for 1600€ new. Took it because I thought it was a good deal and I've always been tempted by it. I thought it would come with the CFAST card and a card reader though but I guess it's just a bundle offer for the US. Anyway so far I haven't shot much with it because of very bad weather in Paris and the lack of time but I've been a bit underwhelmed with the camera. The grip feels too big for my hand and the bottom of the camera is somewhat a hindrance to get to the focus ring. I also thought the image straight out of it would be less "dslr" and more "blackmagic/organic", some of you said it has some kind of mojo (some people I trust on this forum). It is a nice image but nothing that I haven't seen before. (I assume you can get a cinematic image shooting c-log and color grading) Hence my question : Do you think there's a major leap in quality with the 305mb codec ? (as I haven't been able to test it) How do you think it fares compared to, let's say, Prores LT ? With C-log pushed a bit, do you get magenta macroblocking like with S-log2 on Sony cameras ? Is there a huge difference between S-Log2 from Alpha cameras and Clog at 305mb ? Like there is with the log of blackmagic in Prores. I would keep this camera only if I get a noticeable improvement from the other dslr cameras I already have, codec wise I mean. And lastly, I love Canon colors from my dslr stills but I found them not that incredible with the XC10 (best profile for out of camera colors was EOS Standard) and actually the "portrait" picture profile of my sony RX100 V comes quite close to the eos standard profile ! Maybe I was hoping for a film look right out of the camera (I got spoiled with the Fuji X-T20 a friend lent me and the film simulations are soooo great for stills).
