    Seems awsome to me. First the C200 and now these baby's.
    I like it.

    seems like the gx10 is the same as the xf400 but without the handle and xlr inputs.

    be well.

    Currently, there is no information regarding the GX10 offering XF-AVC as the 400/405...there might be a few other small differences.

    This is a very cool release by Canon.....oddly cutting edge. I say oddly because Canon is not noted for cutting edge. This is something Sony should have released. There are not many 4K 60P camcorder out in the market, especially at this price bracket.

    The Dual Pixel Auto Focus is really breakthrough in the Camcorder market. It seems as if everyone in the 4K camcroder market has abandoned the small sensor approach. Resolution has outpaced the ability for sensor technology to catch up. No one has been successful releasing a small sensor 4K camera with decent low light abilities. Camcorders are not the right tool for all occasions but histrionically speaking one of the strengths of small sensor Camcorders has been their ability to easily retain focus. The 1" sensor approach for 4K certainly alleviates some of the light management challenges found in small 4K sensors, but it obviously puts a strain on maintaining focus. I have the Panasonic AG-UX180 and the AF is pretty good, but this dual pixel focus option on these cameras is truly cutting edge in this category.

    I am impressed by this release

    The XF400 looks like a fantastic camera for event video. Touchscreen DPAF, 4K UHD, 15x zoom lens, 1" sensor, dual SDXC card slots. I might get one (or two) in the very near future. Not as sexy as a C200, but for event video, probably more effective (and certainly far cheaper).

    I am surprisingly interested in these cameras as well for event work. I have a C300 II and a couple XC15's. The XC15's seem to still have their space, but the XF405 might be a really nice alternative if I continue to do events and presentations.

    I wonder how fast & slow the servo zoom can go. If I can achieve super-slow zooms, it would be fantastic. Especially if it can be controlled from the tripod pan handle with a wired controller.

    I have teh XA30 and you can set servo zoom speed but I have never tested how slow it can go

    Just looked up the Product PDF sheet on the Website and it has an input for a remote LANC. I couldn't imagine leaving LANC control out of the equation
