Canon Cinema EOS-1D C hits Japan, US this week

updated 05:13 am EST, Thu December 27, 2012

Canon Cinema EOS-1D C, shoots video in 4K at 24fps

The Canon Cinema EOS-1D C, first announced in April, is now shipping in Japan. The high-end full-frame camera is the first on the market to be able to shoot video in the Ultra HD format with a resolution of 4096x2160. US customers can expect to get their hands on the new flagship camera for $11,999 when it goes on sale by the end of the week.

True to its 'Cinema' name, the video quality of the EOS-1D C is such that it can be used in professional movie shoots in conjunction with footage shot with video cameras by super high-end companies like RED, where a smaller camera could be warranted for handheld shots in HD flicks. Canon says that it can shoot Ultra HD video at a maximum of 24fps (8-bit) with a 4:2:2 ratio.

Proving that megapixels aren't everything when it comes to being able to capture footage of the highest quality, the EOS-1D C uses an 18.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor that is capable of a maximum ISO of 25,600 in video mode. When in Ultra HD mode, the camera wholly utilizes the full-frame sensor, although in 1080p mode, users can use the full-frame option or switch to a center portion of the sensor to shoot in the equivalent of the more traditional film size equivalent of Super 35.
