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:

First, a quick report on the new Canon EOS 5DS/R camera from a reader who attended a recent 5DS event in Asia (click on images for larger view):

  • The Canon 5DS/R will start shipping in June, 2015
  • MSRP in Asia will be around HK$26-27k
  • The camera does feel heavy and sturdy
  • Continuous shooting is slow as expected
  • Shutter operation is soft (as in the 5DIII)
  • The duplex display inside the viewfinder feels a bit complicated

The Canon EOS 5DS/R pre-orders will start tomorrow in the US according to the product listings at B&H:

Sample images and videos from the 5DS/R can be found here and here. Additional information on the camera's features and specifications is available here and here.
