Canon XC10 is a compact form-factor camera with a 1' sensor that shoots 4K UHD to Cfast and 1920×1080 HD to SD cards in Canon's new XFAVC codec which is a new proprietary video format for the efficient recording of high-image-quality 4K, 2K and HD video footage. It adopts the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 as video codec, which seems not so compatible with Movie Maker or other NLEs on Windows.
