Canon jumps to 4K resolution with the release of two new cameras. The Cinema EOS C500 is the next step up from the Cinema EOS C300, introduced last November, and comes in both PL-mount and EF-mount versions. Also new is the 4K EOS-1D C DSLR, incorporating Canon Log Gamma.
At Canon's NAB booth #C4325, NAB attendees will see a prototype of a new EOS digital-cinema camera, the C500, with a key difference from the recently announced C300 — this one will output a raw 4K picture (4096×2160) to an external recorder via dual 3G-SDI output.
EOS C300The C300 is engineered to tailor the experience of shooting to the needs of professional cinematography crews. Optimized for HD Productions, its breakthrough form factor and ergonomics are complemented by astonishing technology including a Super 35mm, 8.3-megapixel CMOS image sensor and DiGiC DV III Image Processor. Modular design allows for extensive maneuverability, and the C300 integrates seamlessly into NLE workflows.
EOS C500The EOS C500 capitalizes on the groundbreaking ergonomic design of the EOS C300, offering a Super 35mm, 8.85-megapixel CMOS image sensor and DiG!C DV III Image Processor. It's optimized for 4K, 2K and HD production. Images can be simultaneously delivered RAW and written in lower resolution to dual onboard CF cards to provide proxy video for offline NLE systems.
Canon said "preliminary plans are for a suggested list price of approximately $30,000," subject to change
