Canon brings 4K video to DSLRs with EOS-1D C


Not long ago your bought a DSLR to take photos, then along came video fucntions, Full HD video and now 4K video after Canon revealed the EOS-1D C, the first DSLR capable of recording video at 4K resolution.

While still capable of shooting 18MP stills the camera is clearly all about the video and in addition to shooting 4K video suitable for the cinema industry -- that's a Full HD-dwarfing 4096 x 2160 -- it also boasts 1080p at 50/60fps.

Because the 1D C is based on the EOS-1D X it's no slouch when it comes to stills either and there is 12fps continuous stills shooting, a 61 point AF system and an ISO range of 100-25600.

"The Canon EOS-1D C digital SLR camera was designed in response to the needs of filmmakers, television producers, and other high-level motion-imaging professionals," stated Yuichi Ishizuka, of Canon U.S.A.

"Not only does it combine 4K and Full HD video capture with a convenient design, its use of dual CF cards also offers an efficient workflow compatible with today's post-production requirements."
