Canon’s XC10 is a compact form-factor camera with a 1” sensor that shoots 4K UHD to Cfast and 1920×1080 HD to SD cards in Canon’s new XFAVC codec.

There’s a built-in 24-240mm equivalent lens with a manual zoom and face detection when shooting video. It runs on LP-E6 batteries, offers a 3.5mm jack microphone input and has a maximum ISO of 20,000.
Intriguingly it’s also useable as a stills camera and has a mechanical shutter for taking 12MP stills in photo mode. There’s also a periscope-style attachment for the rear screen that turns it into a viewfinder for judging focus when shooting handheld.
Canon plan to ship the camera in June for $2,499.
