FEATURES:

4K UHD Wide-angle 10x Zoom Lens with Image Stabilizer -
The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder incorporates a Canon 4K video lens that leverages proprietary Canon optical technologies derived from years of experience in developing Cinema, Broadcast and EF Series lenses. This 10x wide-angle optical zoom lens offers a focal range of 24.1–241mm for photos and 27.3–273mm for movies. The use of UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) and Hi-UD lens elements helps compensate for chromatic aberrations and provides a compact size ideal for on-the-go reporting and recording. An innovative retractable lens barrel structure integrating internal guide bars helps facilitate precise lens movement during zooming, while only extending the lens barrel by a mere 36.2mm.

12 Megapixel One-inch 4K UHD-compatible CMOS Image Sensor - The XC15 4K UHD Camcorder features a Canon 12.0 Megapixel 1-inch CMOS image sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range, and both video and photo shooting functionality. The hybrid design makes the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder a true crossover capable of satisfying the needs of both video and still workflows. With capture that includes both 4K UHD and Full HD (FHD) video and still capture up to 12.0 Megapixels, the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder is a strong contender in professional productions, creative fields and more.

The advanced CMOS sensor uses Over-Sampling HD Processing for 1920 x 1080 capture. The use of oversampling technology means that the sensor provides not only high-quality 4K UHD but also exceptional HD quality that is found in other Cinema EOS products such as the Canon EOS C500 4K Cinema camera.

Compact and Ergonomic Design - The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder is compact, ergonomic and lightweight, broadening the range of recording opportunities and possibilities for image expression – and offering innovative shooting potential in situations where a larger camera can't be used. Users will appreciate this camcorder for events such as weddings, video reporting, documentaries and other uses where increased mobility and an unobtrusive design is necessary. This allows the user to interact and record their subjects in a more personal way, while at the same time, limiting the amount of equipment that needs to be carried.

DiG!C DV 5 Image Processor - The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder incorporates Canon's DiG!C DV 5 Image Processor. This advanced core technology component provides the image-processing power and speed that enables such features as 4K UHD video acquisition, Image Stabilization, slow and fast motion recording and precision AF. The DiG!C DV 5 Image Processor is integral in providing high image quality, advanced performance and convenient operability.

Advanced AF Performance - With faster, more agile autofocus – nearly twice as fast as comparable Canon models – the new Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder lets you frame and capture needle-sharp images easily and seamlessly. Autofocus speed can be set in three useful steps – high (the default), middle and low – to enable a range of special effects.

Automatic face detection and tracking will bring key subjects into focus and continuously maintain focus as they move across the frame. When multiple faces are detected, the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder's AF system determines the main subject. A touch-screen override is provided to enable users to select a different subject then the one selected by the camera.

For added visual impact, an advanced direction-determining algorithm also provides large bokeh during defocus mode.

Pro Audio Module with XLR Inputs and Precision Audio Control - The bundled Microphone Adapter MA-400 for the Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder opens up a number of creative possibilities. Two XLR-format audio ports enable direct connection to professional audio equipment such as microphones and audio mixers. The MA-400 allows manual or automatic audio level control and the ability to receive line level signals. The MA-400 also includes an integrated microphone holder to facilitate mounting a shotgun style mic directly to the unit.

To provide improved stability for the supplied MA-400, the Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder is fitted with a cold shoe mount that is longer than that offered on other comparable Canon cameras. The cold shoe's added length provides a larger support area for the adapter and any compatible microphone mounted within the MA-400's integral mic mount. Because the cold-shoe mount does not have compatible data contact pins, the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder does not support still-image sync shooting when using Canon Speedlite flash units.

Look Settings Available for Movies and Stills - To provide more creative flexibility, the Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder includes new Look Settings for changing the gamma curves of both moving and still images. Movie looks from the Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II camera, comprising of Neutral, Production Camera and Color Matrix, have been added to the camcorder's user menu. This allows images to be unified with a common look during small-space shoots, equipment sessions or other occasions where the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder is used as a second sub-camera – thereby making grading easier.

Image Settings Compatible with Cinema EOS Cameras - The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder shares a variety of image quality settings with other Canon Cinema EOS cameras including Canon Log, Wide DR and EOS Std. This helps allow for video captured with the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder to match the "look" of video captured with other Cinema EOS and EOS cameras. The XC15 4K UHD Camcorder features a log gamma setting that sets the camera to maximize dynamic range and provide wide exposure latitude. This is the same log curve used in the Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II camera, which helps maximize compatibility when the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder is used in conjunction with it on the same shoot. This is especially helpful in post-production, where corrections, color matching and grading are applied.

Waveform Monitor - A new feature of the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder is an integrated Waveform monitor. A touch-sensitive on/off button located on the main display activates and deactivates the waveform function. When active, the waveform of the current image is displayed on-screen to let videographers check video-signal levels and characteristics such as exposure and make necessary adjustments.

XF-AVC Codec for up to 4K UHD 30p and Full HD 60p - The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder incorporates the Canon XF-AVC Codec to balance ease of workflow with a high standard of image quality. For 4K UHD up to 30p recording, XF-AVC Intra-Frame encoding is used, which captures all the detail and resolution of the CMOS sensor on a frame-by-frame basis, enabling edits to be made at any point in a motion sequence and high-quality stills to be extracted from any 4K UHD motion-image frame.

To provide direct compatibility with media recorded via the Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II camera, the Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder allows changes to be applied to image file names and metadata after a shoot, allowing for easier data management.

XF-AVC file names contain a unique camera ID, Clip number and a user-selectable code ID to uniquely tag the video clips captured during a specific shoot. Unique proxy file names also are available. Within the format's Metadata areas, the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder can now record Scene and Take numbers, in addition to Reel and Shot plus Circle Takes.

For HD recording up to 60p, AVC Long GOP (Group of Pictures) encoding is used to help maintain outstanding quality and efficient data rates.

Multiple Frame Rate options are available to meet a variety of production needs.

Multiple Recording Modes and Frame Rates - Multiple Recording Modes, Resolutions and Frame Rates make the Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder flexible in a variety of news, cinema and creative environments.

Slow and Fast Motion Recording - The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder features Slow and Fast Motion recording. This allows the user to vary the playback speed of the recorded video. The XC15 4K UHD Camcorder is capable of recording Slow Motion down to 1/4x real-time, and Fast Motion up to a maximum of 1200x.

Superb Still Capture Capability - The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder offers a true hybrid workflow solution for creative videographers who need to integrate both high-quality video and still acquisition into their productions. The camcorder offers the ability to capture both 4K UHD and HD imagery at a variety of frame rates and resolutions. Individual frames from the Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder's 4K UHD video can be extracted in camera or post and used as approx. 8.3-Megapixel still images. The camcorder is also a fully functional 12MP still camera complete with a mechanical shutter.

Canon Log and Wide Dynamic Range Gamma - For professional users and anyone looking to get the most out of their camcorder, the Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder features Canon Log and Canon Wide DR Gamma curves that help maximize dynamic range and provide a wide exposure latitude.

Canon Log is ideal for post-production color-correction and grading where maintaining the highest possible image quality is of utmost importance for post processing. When using Canon Log, the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder can provide a dynamic range up to 800% or 12 stops.

Canon Wide Dynamic Range Gamma allows users to get many of the benefits of Canon Log but maintains an 18% gray point similar to Rec. 709 (the television standard). By using this setting, users can obtain the full dynamic range of the sensor without the need for extensive post-processing.

Wireless Operation - The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder incorporates dual built-in 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz band wireless networks. This functionality provides both a Browser Remote and Browser Preview. By using Browser Remote, camcorder operations can be performed remotely from a web browser on a compatible smartphone or computer. Browser Preview allows users to look at still photos recorded in the camcorder without the need to remove media from the camcorder.

Workflow Versatility - The Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder provides a true hybrid workflow for professional filmmakers and videographers who want to integrate both high-quality video and still images into creative productions. It captures both 4K UHD and Full HD data files at a variety of frame rates and resolutions through an easy-to-implement capture, ingest, edit and render workflow that is fully compatible with industry-standard editing software.

A special-purpose version of Canon's XF Utility 3.1 software – available as a free download – accommodates the XF-AVC codec, streamlining both 4K and Full HD playback, as well as 8.3-Megapixel still-image extractions in JPEG or TIFF formats. For added flexibility, individual frames can be extracted from the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder's 4K UHD video output, either in the camera or during post-production.

CFast 4K UHD Recording Technology - Recording 4K UHD video requires professional-quality media capable of keeping up with the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder's 4K Codec. To meet these high data rate requirements, the camcorder features CFast recording technology. CFast is a next-generation non-proprietary recording solution supported by Canon and a variety of other manufacturers. Its high speed and durability are a perfect match to the XC15 4K UHD Camcorder and provides quality, performance and confidence in recording.

For HD recording an SD card slot is available to record directly to affordable SD cards when the higher data rates of CFast are not needed.

Highlight Priority - To capture highly saturated, realistic colors and to convey gradation characteristics as perceived by the eye, the Canon XC15 4K UHD Camcorder has a Highlight Priority mode that achieves effects similar to HDR modes in other camcorders. By reducing the mid- to high-brightness compression of the standard gamma mode, the Highlight Priority mode helps to prevent loss of detail in high-brightness areas. Designed for display on a bright LCD TV, videos captured in Highlight Priority mode should be shown at a high-brightness setting to help ensure accurate portrayal of the effect.
