      NAB 2012: Canon’s 4K Cameras the EOS-1D C and EOS C500

      TheEOS-1D Cfrom Canon is designed with the cinematographer in mind. TheEOS C500is the big brother to the EOS C300, but is more like an older twin since it’s announced a little more than five months after the C300. What the EOS-1D C (scheduled to be $15,000) and EOS C500 (scheduled to be $30,000) do have in common is capability of 4K video.

      As a DSLR that puts video first, the EOS-1D C represents one of the smallest 4K cameras, especially when combined with EF-mount lenses. With 18MP, a full frame CMOS image sensor, and support for Motion JPEG (a 4K format) this camera is sure to push your CF cards to the limit. It can shoot at a variety of frame rates within 24p and 60p.There is still capability to shoot HD as H.264 and stills in RAW or JPEG, and while we mention photos, its worth mentioning that the EOS-1D C is good in low-light and is a top performer in terms of focusing, exposure and bursts.
