Another Camera we are hoping will be at NAB 2015!!!
The Canon XC10 4K fixed-lens camera has been officially announced.

available for pre-order here.

The XC10 has Canon Log and a similar XF-AVC codec with MXF wrapper found in the new Canon C300 Mark II and the company is calling it a companion to the Cinema EOS cameras. It is one of only three Canon cameras with internal 4K (the others being the 1D C and, of course, the just-announced C300 Mark II).
