April 12, 2012
Canon has today unveiled the EOS-1D C, expanding its line of Cinema EOS cameras.
Aimed at film, TV and ‘high-resolution production industries’, the EOS-1D C features an 18.1-million-pixel full-frame CMOS imaging sensor and will cost £10,000 when it goes on sale in October.
‘The first SLR camera of its kind, the EOS-1D C offers a unique and highly portable package optimised for high-quality video recording,’ claims Canon.
The new EOS supports 4,096×2,160-pixel video recording.
The EOS-1D C is also designed to capture still images, at up to 12 frames per second.
The burst rate can be extended to 14fps with the mirror locked up and exposure and AF locked on the first frame, according to Canon.
