The Canon XC10 4K Camcorder, a compact camcorder, features 1" CMOS sensor, a 10x f/2.8 to 5.6 SLR-style manual zoom lens with auto and manual focus capability, a DIGIC DV 5 image processor. Canon XC10 is able to capture 2MP stills and 3840 x 2160 resolution, high bit-rate 4K video footage. The 4K video is recorded with H.264 compression and packed in the widely supported MXF wrapper. Bitrates 35 and 50 Mbps are available for 1080i/p recording, and there are 205 and 305 Mbps modes (depending on frame rate).
As we know, the MXF format can't be natively supported by many professional video editing applications including FCP 6, FCP 7 and even the Final Cut Pro X. What's more, it also would be a bit hard to handle 4K video with Final Cut Pro X. That's the reason why there are so many guys are facing troubles when editing Canon XC10 4K MXF files in Final Cut Pro. Well, things can be different if you get some help from third-party software UFUWare MXF Converter for Mac.
