Compact 4K camcorder from Canon

It’s been so long since Canon updated its compact camcorder lineup that someone in the marketing department would appear to have forgotten their own naming convention. The new XF400 and XF405 are, quite clearly, nothing more than the newer sibling of the XA lineup, the...

Canon launches XC15 oddball camcorder

When Canon launched its XC10 camcorder / camera hybrid last year, no-one really seemed to like it much. It was a peculiar mix of cheap price and bizarre design decisions trying to make out it was a new form of media capture device. Not to...

Canon hits mega milestone

New 4K camera/camcorder from Canon

Following some teaser images that were shown online a week or so ago, Canon has confirmed it’s launching an interesting-looking 4K-capable camera/camcorder. The XC10 has a hybrid camera / camcorder shape – sort of like a camera body with bits of camcorder functionality stuck on...

Tweaks for Canon consumer camcorders

Canon has announced revisions to its line up of consumer-grade “point and shoot” camcorders at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. Three Legria (Vixia in the US) HF-R models are announced, the entry-level 606 plus the 66 and 68. Still only HD rather than 4K –...
