Canon Debuts the New Cinema EOS-1D C 4K Camera at NAB

  • At Canon’s pre-NAB event in Las Vegas, the company debuted its first EOS camera developed primarily as a video camera rather than a still camera that also shoots video.
  • The camera will shoot 4096 x 2160 24fps Motion JPEG. Recording modes include 8-bit, 4:2:2, 24fps capture to a CF card — or 8-bit, 4:2:2 clips in an uncompressed format over HDMI. It also includes a headphone jack for audio monitoring.
  • “Like the 1D series bodies that bear similar monikers and appearances, including the yet-to-ship EOS- 1D X, the C model is a very capable still shooter, offering the same core functionality of the $6,800 X. It also brings 4K capture to the table, however, prompting Canon to price the camera far above its less-abled counterpart,” reports Engadget.
  • “At $15,000, we don’t expect to see red C logos popping up in many a photojournalist’s gear bag, but for deep-pocketed professionals with a need to capture 4K clips, this may be a worthwhile acquisition,” suggests the report.
  • The post includes a 2-minute video from NAB.
