As well as being compared against other super zooms, the Canon XC10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, pro DSLRs, boutiques, mirrorless and digicams. The Canon XC10's top rivals come from Canon (such as the EOS 80D and the EOS 5D Mark III) and Panasonic (such as the Lumix DMC-LX100 and the Lumix DC-GH5)

compared toSuper zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon XC10 compared to other super zoom competitors include: it has a touch screen and slightly longer exposures (60 seconds vs 30 seconds).

However, on average it doesn't have a built-in flash, takes significantly lower resolution photos (12 MP vs 20 MP), doesn't shoot as fast continuously (3.8 fps vs 14 fps), is older (april 2015 vs september 2016) and is much more expensive ($2,268.34 vs $1,298.00).
