Our Take on the Canon XC15 4K Professional Camcorder:
The camcorder has been redesigned for more professional use. Canon’s engineers have gone to great lengths to provide A/V recording. The advanced electronics are housed in a compact and ergonomic housing. Such functionality is critical for people involved in outdoor reporting. Advanced electronics are capable of recording UHD 4K at up to 29.97 frames per second. Of course, it is a really good performance. But even if your format is 1080p at up to 59.94fps, this won't be a problem for any videographer with the Canon XC15.
Operating from f/2.8 to f/5.6 aperture, the lens futures a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27.3 to 273mm in movie mode. The designers have added automatic and manual focus controls. Plus, the XC15 camcorder supports CFast and SD cards. Images are saved on separate SD cards, which helps avoid data confusion and simplifies data backup.
The kit includes a microphone that connects to the XLR audio input. The MA-400 was originally developed for the C300 Mk II and is intended for single-user applications. The more advanced model has an external holder. Comfort for any videographer is inevitable. This is especially noticeable when it comes to shooting outdoors.
Among the new menu options, you will find internal microphone limiting and very fine adjustment of sensitivity. Last but not least, the XC15 also features a new 24p mode for a 4K video. This system is capable of recording up to 305 Mbps in 4K, just like the C300 Mk II. Additional consistency is very often critical on the set.
The XC15 also features a waveform monitor. Such electronics allow people to accurately control the characteristics of the video signal. In conditions of poor visibility of the image on the screen, such an improvement in equipment is unlikely to be superfluous.
