The company issues a new model with minor updates over the XC10.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

After about a year an a half since the introduction of the XC10, Canon's compact UHD 4K prosumer camcorder receives a minor update. The XC15 has an XLR input for external microphones and the "look" modes that have been in the higher-end models so that you can better match the video from the XC15 with them.

Canon expects to ship the XC15 in September 2016 for $3,000 (£2,410). I don't think it's been announced yet for Australia, but the price converts to roughly AU$4,000.
