Compact 4K camcorder with high-end audio interface

The XC15 combines the best elements from its predecessor with new features and functionality, including a microphone adapter with dual XLR inputs for professional audio capture, quick autofocus and a 24p frame rate option for cinematographers. The XC15 includes the MA-400, a microphone adaptor which allows for professional grade audio to be recorded via dual XLR connections that accept balanced and unbalanced microphones and line level audio inputs. 

4K recording for content creators

Shooters have the freedom to capture a diverse range of scenes in high quality, low noise 4K video with a shallow depth of field. The flexibility of the XC15 will appeal to news gatherers due to its ability to extract 8.29MP still images when used in 4K (UHD) recording mode for publication in print or online. 

Versatility when you need it 

With  a versatile 27.3-273mm (10X) focal range (35mm equivalent, in video mode) videographers can easily switch between capturing sweeping scenes, to intimate close ups with a single lens. Pros and enthusiasts alike can change between movie recording and still image shooting, capturing high quality 12.0MP images.
