First 4K Footage from Canon’s 1D C Surfaces

Back in April of this year, Canon officially announced its EOS 1D C: a 4K cinema DSLR. And even though consumers (with significant amounts of spare cash) won't be getting their hands on it until sometime late this year, the first 4K video sample from the camera surfaced a few days ago.

Canon Officially Unveils the 1D C, a 4K Cinema DSLR

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. It records 4K at 24fps and 1080P at 24/25/30/50/60fps, shoots 1080p uncompressed with 8-bit 4:2:2 Clean HD via HDMI, and offers a headphone jack instead of the PC socket found on the 1D X. 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.
