Just watched this promo piece from Videomaker on the new Canon XC15. I like Videomaker, and they make it very clear that it is sponsored. I looked briefly at the XC10 in late 2015. I really wanted it to be the solution. Unfortunately, it just had too many shortcomings, especially in terms of operation. I thought the factory loupe was a nice touch. Unfortunately, it blocked access to the touch screen, where most of the controls were.
In short, I ended up buying the C100. More money, and not 4K. Otherwise a wonderful camera. I’ve been a Canon fan for some time, and also own a 5DMKII, which was a benchmark at the time, that the rest of the industry scrambled to follow. This one, I believe is a miss. The addition of the C300 XLR bridge does address some shortcomings in the audio department. Overall, I think there is still a ways to go. They must be aware of what Panasonic is doing in this space? I still plan to roll my C100 for some time, but if I was looking at 4K capable cameras for this price, it would be the either the Panasonic HC-X1000, or the AG-UX90 hands down.
