Canon XC10 4K Camcorder incorporates a Canon 4K video lens that
leverages proprietary Canon optical technologies derived from years of
experience in developing Cinema, Broadcast, and EF Series lenses. This
10x wide-angle optical zoom lens offers a focal range of 24.1-241 mm for
photos and 27.3-273 mm for movies. The use of UD (Ultra-low Dispersion)
and Hi-UD lens elements helps compensate for chromatic aberrations and
provides a compact size. An innovative retractable lens barrel structure
integrating internal guide bars helps facilitate precise lens movement
during zooms, and extends the lens barrel by a mere 36.2mm.
The XC10 Camcorder's 4K Wide-Angle 10x Zoom lens features separate
focus and zoom rings for professional-style manual lens operation. (Auto
Focus can also be engaged, and focus can be controlled via the optional
Canon RC-6 wireless remote controller or web browser via the XC10 4K
Camcorder’s Wi-Fi connection.) The rotation angle of the zoom ring is
approximately 71°, allowing for rapid manual zooming. Clearly engraved
focal length marks and the WIDE and TELE mechanical ends combine to
further improve usability.
3-Surface, 2-Piece Aspherical Lens
Integration of focal points using aspherical surfaces
Spherical aberration produced by a spherical lens
This 3-surface 2-piece aspherical lens,
that is the pride of Canon, helps eliminate the various kinds of
aberrations that tend to arise in compact, wide-angle lenses.
Built-in Canon Optical Image Stabilization enhances the
one-person operation ease of the XC10 4K Camcorder. Three modes of Image
Stabilization are offered (Dynamic, Standard, and Powered) to suit a
range of shooting situations. Canon AF (Auto Focus) with Face AF
tracking mode provides additional operator assistance. The XC10 4K
Camcorder’s 10x zoom lens also includes a 2x digital teleconverter that
can be switched on in MOVIE mode for added image magnification.
