I bought this camera, and was moderately pleased with the camera, small screen and big fingers do not go well. The picture quality, in post was OK, not OMG by any means. I am hoping, soon, Canon will see the opportunity to put a Super 35 in the XC15 and get rid of that moderate Lens with just the EF...
As an owner of a GH4 and Canon C100, I believe I have some perspective and I can give this camera an unbiased review. I just took it out for filming on Long Island and it worked great. Picture quality is astonishing. It has the high-dynamic range setting, like my C100, that I enjoy using.
This is one of the best compact camera I have used in the field. First of all I love that its so light and compact, second the quality of is very crisp and sharp at the HD level. For me its really a step up from using a DSLR like the 70D.
I bought the XC15 to replace my old camcorder. I shoot stock video for a living and mostly use Sony's. Well the more I used the XC15 the more I liked it so now it is my main camera to shoot everything with. The colors, handling and zoom on lens is just perfect. Thank-you for this little gem Canon!
My main camera is a C300. This complements it perfectly and makes a great second camera. Shooting in 4K makes it easy to compose a variety of shots in the edit, and the ability to match profiles ie excellent.
First, I primarily shoot with a Canon C300. Often working in remote locations with archaeologists - often handheld - a day with the C300 rigged for audio (shotgun and wireless) can leave me whipped. So, I bought the XC15 and did some testing.
I've got the third one of these on the way. I shoot occasional client jobs lately, but spend more time teaching high-school-age filmmakers. I've been a digital filmmaker since the Canon XL-1 and Final Cut Pro 1.0.
Many of you who read this will already know about how robust, sharp, and beautiful the XC10 image was and is. I'll not remark further on that except to say the XC15 is the same, with more choices, and an all important waveform to facilitate exposure.
Amazing image quality! I love my purchase...
This thing and its predecessor, the XC10, get little respect in this fast paced world of new cameras. But images in UHD are stunningly good. Zoom range handy, and ergonomics great. Detriment: slow autofocus, low light performance not great, and too slow for stills.
