Canon Working on a 4K Fixed Lens Camcorder?

Canon Rumors writes:

We’re told that a 4K fixed lens camcorder is coming in the early part of 2015. Such a product would probably fit in with CES as a consumer product announcement. We’re told the camera is called the XC10, and it will have similar ergonomics to the EOS C100, but it will have a fixed lens.

A lot points to the fact that Canon will implement 4K on cameras in 2015. The EOS 5D Mark IV is also rumoured to feature 4k.

Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review by DigitalRev

Don’t miss DigitalRev’s Kai introduce you to the EOS 7D Mark II and its features, Kai’s typical review style included. Once more, the 7D Mark II turns out to be a killer APS-C camera.

I think I am not missing the mark when saying the EOS 7D Mark II is on the way to become the industry leading APS-C DSLR. It’s a game-changer. The AF-system of the (full-frame) EOS-1D X is the best you can get on an APS-C camera, you get 10fps, and an amazing high ISO performance. Read more about the EOS 7D Mark II’s excellent weather sealing, the highly advanced AF, and the industry leading high ISO performance (have a look here too). All our coverage on the EOS 7D Mark II can be seen here.
