Canon has officially announced its new EOS-1D C 4K cinema DSLR, a camera that offers the same body and still photography features as the 1D X but is more geared towards high-end motion picture and television production.

The 18MP full frame sensor inside has ISO 100-51,200 for still and a max of 25,600 for video. The 1D C will be shipping by the end of this year with a price tag of $15,000 — more than double the $6,800 1D X.
