Designed for the motion picture, television and high-resolution production industries, the EOS-1D C is the world’s first DSLR to support 4K video capture. The upgrade has been developed taking into account feedback from the professional community, and adds support for 25p recording at the camera’s maximum 4K resolution. The EOS 1D-C captures 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video using 8-bit motion JPEG compression, with the ability to simultaneously output an uncompressed Full HD (1920×1080) YCbCr 4:2:2 signal to an external recorder via its HDMI terminal. Full HD video can also be recorded direct to CF cards at frame rates of up to 1080/60p, whilst Canon Log Gamma ensures video is rich in exposure latitude and dynamic range ““ offering outstanding freedom for video professionals during shooting, and for colourists in post-production.
The new feature upgrade will be available free of charge from April 2013.
