The all new Canon that has 4K video

Basically, The Future Of Life Is 4K

For now, though, this is still strangely limited in cameras. Which is why Canon’s new XC10 digital camcorder is priced at $2,500.

So 4K TVs are practically old news already, but we just got a brand new 4K channel, and Sharp just announced the first 4K smartphone - which makes it pretty clear, that our entire future will be in 4K.

For now, though, this is still strangely limited in cameras. Which is why Canon’s new XC10 digital camcorder is priced at $2,500.

Although you can’t tell from the photo, the XC10 is actually tiny: it’s 4.9 x 4.0 x 4.8-inches and weighs a measly 2.3 pounds.

The digital camcorder is not a DSLR, but it can also snap 12 megapixel images and extract 8 megapixel stills from the 4K footage.

It has a 1-inch sensor that records 4K video at a superb 3,840 x 2,160 resolution and the more common full HD video at 1,920 x 1,080. The XC10 has a fixed 24.1-241mm f/2.8-5.6 lens with a 10x wide-angle zoom. Even better, it has built-in dual-band (hello lightning fast 2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi for remote shutter control with your smartphone or tablet.

It also has slow and fast motion recording functions for all you adrenaline junkies taking to record your craziest moments.

Most importantly, it does have a 3-inch touchscreen that tilts. As an interesting feature, the device supports dual memory card slots: for SDXC and for CompactFlash.

But, this nifty little gadget still has a ridiculous $2,500 price tag. And with tons of new Android’s supporting 4K video, it seems a little steep. To be fair, the Android’s generally have terrible low light performance and poor image stabilization, but hopefully, Canon will just integrate their next flagship camera to have 4K - and that will solve the problem.
