Canon unveils EOS-1D C and C500 4K Cinema cameras, two new lenses ahead of NAB (updated)
POSTED APR 12TH 2012 09:00AM
In a departure from its last introduction as dramatic as the C300’s Hollywood launch itself , Canon has quietly announced two additional cameras to sit alongside the company’s former lone flagship. You may have caught a glimpse of the EOS-1D C at the C300 launch, but what six months ago was a mere mock-up has actually become a reality, likely to ship sometime this year. More out of left field, however, is the C500 — a higher-end version of the C300 that adds several shooting modes, dual 3G-SDI ports and a larger, permanent grip. Both cameras can capture 4K video, but in substantially different ways.
The $15,000 1D C, which has the same chassis and still shooting features of its less-abled cousin, the EOS-1D X , pipes 4096 x 2160 8-bit 4:2:2 video to a CF card at 24 fps. Unlike the X, however, the C swaps a headphone jack for the X’s PC socket, that’s usually used for hooking up strobes. The higher-end C500 requires a dedicated external recorder, but offers two full-RAW output options: 4096 x 2960, that will be better suited for motion picture capture, and 3840 x 2160 for 4K TV. Both of these modes offer 10-bit 4:4:4 at 60 frames-per-second. There’s also a half-RAW option, at 4096 x 1080 or 3840 x 1080 resolutions, also 10-bit 4:4:4, but at 120 fps. The C500 also includes dual CF slots, but that recording option is only available for 1080p (which can be captured to CF
