At the Bench: Canon XC10 Stills & Motion Workflow

The Canon XC10 is a remarkable addition to the Canon line. It delivers 4K video in an ultra-lightweight and unobtrusive package, making it an ideal camera for documentary filmmakers and photo journalists.

More and more, photojournalists are being asked to supply video and stills from the same assignment. The XC10 makes this process more streamlined by allowing the creation of JPEG and TIFF images from motion capture. In my video above, I will show you how easy it is to produce stills from video using the free Canon XF Utility for XF-AVC software.
