Canon has added a 4K camcorder to its range, launching the compact XC15 which can also record still images. A successor to the Canon XC10, Canon says the new camcorder is ideal as a ‘B’ or ‘C’ camera for film productions and offers faster AF and a 24p frame rate. The new Canon camera can record UHD (3840 x 2160) 4K footage at 25p or 24p to an internal CFast 2.0 card at up to 305Mbps, or Full HD to an SD card at up to 50Mbps. The Canon XC15 also allows users to extract 8.29-megapixel still images when used in 4K (UHD) recording mode. (you can read top 10 best 4K video cameras review)
