This compact, lightweight video camera makes it possible to record high-quality 4K videos. Record from a wide range of angles using the combination of a tilting LCD monitor and rotating grip. Create an excellent viewing environment unaffected by external light just by fitting a finder unit to the LCD monitor. A new UI was developed and utilized in this model, to give users a quality feeling of control whether using the touch panel or the joystick. As a sub-camera for video production, news or digital cinema, it is appropriate for a variety of applications, including photography in scenes that require mobility.

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User

  • ASSESMENT CRITERIA Practicability, Innovation, Usability + Ergonomics

The demands of photography and video are quite different, and the XC10 balances these demands perfectly. The form is refreshing and clean. The interplay between the handle and the lens is striking, and the way the camera can be positioned for low-angle shooting is excellent. With its minimalistic, yet expressive, design language, the XC10 camcorder is perfectly suited for a variety of still and video applications.
