xc15 lens

Hi, I want to buy the canon xc15 4k camera to shoot independent shorts.  Might be a bone headed question but which wide angle lenses compatible with it?

The XC15 does not allow for interchangeable lenses.  It uses an integrated zoom with a 35mm equivalent range of 27.3-273mm

If you wish use interchangeable EF mount lenses, then you need to look into the digital cinema cameras from Canon, instead of a professional digital camcorder.  The C100 is in the price range of the XC15, but it does not offer 4K video.

Hello JohnRobert1, 

 

The best camera if you're wanting to shoot high quality broadcast footage on a budget then the XC15 would be the best choice.  It gives you more recording flexibility with regards to the image quality.  You can also add either a wide angle adapter or telephoto adapter to this camera to extend the range of the lens.  

Both the Canon WD-H58W wide converter and Canon TL-H58 tele-converter lens are compatible.
