henricus Posted November 30, 2018 Share Posted November 30, 2018 Thought it was about time to register and revive this thread ? Anyone here still using the XC10 (or XC15)? I just bought one! I finally realized after having used m43 and apsc cameras for some time that what I really want is a more run and gun style videocam. Like I used in the old days.. I just don't care much for shallow depth of field. Frankly I think it is a bit overrated and overused. I understand the need for it, but not for my type of work. Also the price was just so damn low, it was impossible to resist ? So enter the XC10. I have been experimenting with it now for a couple of days, and I have to say it is a fun camera! The ergonomics are super, the stabilization is top notch, auto focus is smooth and the image quality.. there is something about that image it produces.. Especially in C Log. I find it really attractive. I have some questions about the settings though. Apparently getting the settings right is tricky for this camera, which is evident by reading through this thread.. So I will probably be using this camera mainly in HD mode. As I understand from this thread it is best to shoot in C-Log around base ISO and ETTR (standard eos in low light). Another option that I tried today is to use it in TV mode. I haven't put much effort yet in grading the test footage, so I can't say yet what works best. Definitely an extra ND filter is needed to keep the ISO low. I have read that the HD quality is better in 50p, is this right? Normally I would shoot in 25p 1/50. Also I've read in this thread that ghosting is reduced when shooting 50p at 1/50? Is this the way to set up the camera, or is it just best to shoot in 25p 1/50 or 50p 1/100? I am a bit confused about this.. Looking forward to your reactions ? Greetings from China! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
