Is this the new 4k Canon video camera? *UPDATED*

4k Canon video camera
A reader sent me those pictures of what appears to be a new 4k Canon video camera concept that will most likely be announced at the 2015 NAB show (April 11-16th). The funny part is that somebody from the audience (Jackie Chan?) jumped on stage and grabbed the camera from the Canon China President & CEO Hideki Ozawa:

  • External viewfinder
  • Canon 10X optical zoom 8.9-89mm f/2.8-5.6 4k video fixed lens (35mm Equi. 24-240mm)

    Hello Nikon. Anybody awake in there? I want to use my Nikon glass on a decent NIKON video camera……..

    • Hextax

      No such thing as a “decent nikon video camera”

      • Geoffrey Baker

        I know, that is what I’m waiting for…..

        • Samuel

          Get an adapter and a mirrorless camera.

      • apw100

        The D750 is pretty good for a dSLR. No moire, minimal rolling shutter issues, decent codec, etc.

        • Kyle

          I bought my D750 for video use since I have a lot of Nikon lenses…. works very well.

      • nowadays that’s a big prejudice.

        • Hextax

          Nikon fanboiz have been saying that since the d90 days. Still not true.

          • bakanecko

            and canon fanboys still inside their box and don’t have any ideas what’s happening in the real world

          • You wish I was a Nikon fanboy. LOL.

            As for video, both Canon and Nikon are below Panasonic, Sony and now, even Samsung when it comes to photographic cameras with great video quality.

            But ultimately I don’t really care about your faith in what has better video, because this is hardly a matter of belief. My comment was more about other people not digging into a delusion world like yours and actually researching before saying nonsense.

            And when someone can’t present any real and factual argument, you pretty much know who actually is the fanboy of the conversation, if we can even call this that.

            .. Nikon D5200 is an amazing video camera with the Toshiba sensor. one of the best i’ve read. The new D750 is plenty decent in regard to video quality. but yes they should add all the things that Panasonic has implanted in the GH4

    • Musouka
      • Eno

        Ye, for a second, what a joke.

  • Helder Martins
    • yes, I think it is Jackie Chan

    • Chaitanya

      yes, that is Jackie Chan, great to see Canon using actors for promotion/release of new products. Until now only Nikon used actors for promoting their imaging products.

      • fjfjjj

        Why is it great?

        • Chaitanya

          most people know actors and so far all the advertisements for Canon products have featured pro photographers. Nikon uses Priyanka Chopra for promoting their entry level SLRs and Coolpix cameras in India. This is just one example of the advert from India.

          • Tonya

            jacki has been sponsored by canon for the last seven years at least… He even had his own limited edition green colored 550d over here in China. They made 100 green ones with jacki’s signatures on the strap and body. I’m a Aussie film maker living here in Guangzhou china for the last four years. Jacki has his own toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo, in fact supermarkes have entire shelves packed with jacki sponsored items of just about everything! He is huge here.. Of course. I’d wager the fact he makes more from sponsors than acting income .. Can someone verify that fact? Googles blocked here lols!

          • Chaitanya

            in India Canon had sponsored Sachin Tendulkar for promoting powershot series of cameras. But that just for commercials, nothing special like Jackie’s deal with Canon in China. Here now a days Canon adverts features pro photographer for promoting Canon EOS range of cameras.

          • Zos Xavius

            His net worth is 140 million USD. Some of the larger movies he was in netted him tens of millions of dollars but it seems that a large portion of his wealth was generated from licensing his likeness.

  • with a relatively big camera, they could had done a better job with the lens aperture for a 1″ sensor.

    • Denis Mamaev

      Yes! Sony RX10 8xlens with f2.8 for similar sensor is no bigger

  • jefferylewis

    We want a D400, 50 MP, 4K 60p, 12 fps and Bruce Lee!

    • Eno

      I wold settle even for a very good 20 mpixels D500, 12 fps, 4K 60 with Jet Li. 🙂

    • fjfjjj

      Who’s “we”?

      • jefferylewis

        The whingers that keep asking for a D400. I have a D750 and D7200 on order. I could care less about D400. I just wanted to say like Bruce Lee – impossible to deliver. Like the D400! Never will happen!

  • CaMeRa QuEsT

    Seriously, a rotating grip? Seems like someone at Canon dusted off some 90’s blueprints for this sucker. And that is not an external EVF, but rather a mirrored loupe for the LCD screen. Now that is a neat idea!

  • sickheadache

    Is it me? This puppy looks like..Cheap? It looks clumsy. By the time both Canon and Nikon gets really serious about 4k…other camera makers will be launching 6 and 8K…lol

  • D800GUY

    Oh god, that shape reminds me of the early 2000’s bridge camera…yuck.

  • Camaman

    DSPL format/shape for video camera?
    Talk about going with the fad.

    Do they actually thing people are using DSLR’s for video because of its shape and ergonomics for video hand holding!?

  • Bo Dez

    that looks….interesting….

  • Duncan Dimanche

    JACKIE CHAN !!!!!! haha love this guy so now I love Canon !!!

  • Alex
    • fjfjjj

      Or like a Coolpix 950

  • CaMeRa QuEsT

    BTW, it screams of Cinema… PowerShot!!!

  • Oskar

    It doesn’t seem to have image stabilization, does it?
