    Default Canon Introduces EOS -1D C the 4K DSLR

    Finally the wait is over. On Nov 3rd 2011, Canon had announced during the unveiling of Cinema EOS C300 that it was developing a 4K DSLR. Today, Canon has unveiled the 4K EOS-1D C – the most advanced EOS DSLR ever for shooting movies and the first DSLR camera to join Canon’s Cinema EOS System.


    The EOS-1D C adds advanced video functions on top of the 18.1 Megapixel of the EOS-1D X by introducing 4K recording to CF cards, and high-speed shooting at 60p (NTSC) or 50p (PAL) in Full HD – in a compact body favoured by DSLR filmmakers. I was missing the high speed shooting (for slow motion) and now this camera can be set to 50p (PAL country like ours) and 60p (NTSC).

    it also inherits the Canon Log Gamma option from other Canon Cinema EOS cameras. So the EOS-1D C is ideal as a second camera used in conjunction with EOS C300 and EOS C300 PL Digital Cinema Cameras. To further enhance this capability the EOS-1D C DSLR can be set to crop to the same format as the Super 35mm format of the EOS C300/C300PL cameras.

    The combination of functionality, filming formats and image quality mean that the EOS-1D C is more than capable of being used as a stand-alone capture device. Third party accessories are catered for from the outset with the inclusion of a positional plug on the base plate of the camera to allow for the precise attachment of such accessories.

    The EOS-1D C occupies a unique position in the market as no other product offers a combination of such advanced photo and video features in a single camera body.

    EOS-1D C – KEY FEATURES

    An evolution in DSLR movie shooting, offering the creative possibilities of EOS 5D Mark II with improved features, quality and lens options.
    Full-frame 35mm image sensor provides extremely shallow depth-of-field and superb sensitivity.
    Small form factor allows use in restricted environments without compromising on quality.
    Record video at 4K, digital cinema resolution (at 24fps) or Full HD at higher frame rates (1080/60p).
    Clean HDMI output (Full HD, 4:2:2 colour sampling).
    Capture Full HD video and high-resolution stills from one device.


    Price:
    That will be the biggest kill joy, unless you are earning good money from filming. It is likely to be priced at 15000 USD, so out of bounds for most of the hobbyists.

    Default Canon's Press Release of EOS 1D C 4K DSLR

    Canon U.S.A. Introduces EOS-1D C Digital SLR Camera Featuring 4K High-Resolution Video Capture

    Newest Addition to the Canon Cinema EOS Product Line Combines the Convenient Form Factor of a Digital SLR Camera with Full HD and 4K Video Recording up to 4096 x 2160-Pixel Resolution

    LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., April 12, 2012 – Continually advancing the frontiers of digital high-resolution motion-image capture for film, television, and other industries, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the EOS-1D C digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera.* Delivering outstanding video performance, the compact, lightweight EOS-1D C provides video recording at 4K (4096 x 2160-pixel) or Full HD (1920 x 1080-pixel) resolution to support high-end motion picture, television production and other advanced imaging applications.

    Equipped with an 18.1-megapixel full-frame 24mm x 36mm Canon CMOS sensor, the camera records 8-bit 4:2:2 Motion JPEG 4K video to the camera's CF memory card at 24 frames-per-second (fps) or Full HD 1920 x 1080 video at selectable frame rates from 24p to 60p, making it possible for next-generation visual expression with even higher image-quality and resolution performance.



    "The Canon EOS-1D C digital SLR camera was designed in response to the needs of filmmakers, television producers, and other high-level motion-imaging professionals," stated Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. "Not only does it combine 4K and Full HD video capture with a convenient design, its use of dual CF cards also offers an efficient workflow compatible with today's post-production requirements."

    Creative Control
    The Canon EOS-1D C digital SLR camera incorporates Canon Log Gamma to enable the recording of high-quality video with rich gradation expression, making possible the type of impressive image quality required in motion pictures by maximizing both highlight and shadow detail retention while also providing a high level of color-grading freedom. The EOS-1D C's full-frame 24 x 36mm 18.1-megapixel Canon CMOS sensor makes possible a wide range of creative imaging expression, such as image-blur effects. Additional features include an expanded sensitivity range of up to ISO 25600 for exceptional motion-imaging results with reduced noise even in low-light settings. The camera's ability to record 8-bit 4:2:2 4K and 8-bit 4:2:0 Full HD video to CF cards eliminates the need for an external recorder and enables workflows with increased mobility. If desired, however, captured video (excluding 4K video) can be output from the camera's HDMI terminal to an external recorder using an uncompressed YCbCr 8-bit 4:2:2 signal.

    4K video is captured by an approximately APS-H-sized portion of the full image sensor, while Full HD video can be captured in the user's choice of two different imaging formats:

    1. The standard Full HD setting captures the full 36mm width of the CMOS sensor to achieve the largest possible angle of view for any compatible lens.
    2. An optional Super 35 crop setting enables cinematographers to match the industry-standard imaging format and angle of view achieved by traditional motion picture cameras. This enables video footage from the EOS-1D C camera to more closely match the look of footage from other cameras in multi-camera shooting environments.
    Other useful video-related features on the EOS-1D C DSLR include a built-in headphone jack for real-time audio monitoring, and the ability to view the camera's LCD even when the HDMI port is connected to an external monitor. The EOS-1D C camera uses the same LP-E4N battery pack as the EOS-1D X, and it can also be powered by an optional AC Adapter Kit.

    The EOS-1D C camera ships with Canon software applications including EOS Utility, which enables various camera settings to be adjusted from a PC, and Picture Style Editor. These two personal computer applications enable users to view the camera's live output on an external monitor1 and adjust the image in real-time to maximize shooting and post-production efficiencies. The software also ensures no loss of quality for 4K/Motion JPEG and full HD/60p video displayed on the external monitor, and it enables video shot with Canon Log Gamma to be output on the monitor with video gamma applied.

    Versatility and Value
    The Canon EOS-1D C camera can be used to capture still images with more than 60 interchangeable Canon EF and EF Cinema Lenses, all of which are designed to deliver exceptional image quality to maximize the potential for creative visual expression. The compact size and lightweight design of the camera make it easy to carry so it is highly mobile for convenient shooting inside automobiles and other confined spaces. Its compact size also enables peripheral equipment such as rails and cranes to be more compact, which can facilitate smoother handling and reduced costs on-set. The camera's low-light capabilities can also help to minimize lighting costs and increase versatility for lighting. For added usability, record start/stop can be remotely controlled by EOS Utility Software via an optional Canon WFT-E6A Wireless File Transmitter.

    Realizing the same exceptional still-image performance as the recently introduced Canon EOS-1D X digital SLR camera, the camera provides a sensitivity range of ISO 100-51200 for outstanding still-image results with reduced noise, even in dimly lit settings. Incorporating high-performance Canon Dual DIGIC 5+ image processors, the EOS-1D C delivers high-precision AF and AE performance while also enabling high-speed continuous shooting of up to approximately 12 fps. In the ultra-fast continuous shooting mode, the EOS-1D C provides a continuous shooting speed of up to approximately 14 fps (mirror remains raised during shooting; JPEG images only).

    The Canon EOS-1D C digital SLR camera is scheduled to be available within 2012 at a suggested retail price of $15,000.
