Press release:

Canon develops feature upgrade for the world’s first 4K DSLR, the EOS-1D C

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 30 January 2013 – Canon today announces the development of a new feature upgrade for the ground-breaking EOS-1D C. The upgrade has been developed taking into account feedback from the European professional video community, and adds support for 25p recording at the camera’s maximum 4K resolution.

Designed for the motion picture, television and high-resolution production industries, the EOS-1D C is the world’s first DSLR to support 4K video capture. It offers a unique, highly portable package optimised for ultra-high quality recording, delivering exceptional low light performance and film-like dynamic range from a highly-compact body that can be used in a wide-range of shooting situations.

The EOS 1D-C captures 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video using 8-bit motion JPEG compression, with the ability to simultaneously output an uncompressed Full HD (1920x1080) YCbCr 4:2:2 signal to an external recorder via its HDMI terminal. Full HD video can also be recorded direct to CF cards at frame rates of up to 1080/60p, whilst Canon Log Gamma ensures video is rich in exposure latitude and dynamic range – offering outstanding freedom for video professionals during shooting, and for colourists in post-production.

The new feature upgrade will be available free of charge from April 2013.

    Only 12000? Cheap stuff! Also must buy a lot of accesories and learn how to use all of them because this is a DSLR camera. If you want shoot video buy a dedicated camera instead!

      Ignorance knows no boundaries. The ostrich has spoken.

        You, smart-ass, don´t insult. Explain why I´m ignorant instead.

    Videographers must have very large hands if they can handle that beast of a DSLR for video…

      True… with traditional video cameras being so small :P

        At least, “traditional” videocams have better ergonomics.

          It’s sad to see a commonsense having become something that’s too much to expect from general photography enthusiasts… for people who want full blown 4K cameras with massive bodies, there are different options out there. Heck, even Canon makes the C500 for that sort of an audience. These video DSLRs are there for all other times when people want both stills and video.

          Haven’t you seen the 1D C promotions where they show stills photographers using the 1D C’s 4K video for stills?

          And learn to use the internet before you learn to add crap to it:
