Canon Announces first 4K DSLR, the Canon EOS-1D C

Canon has just announced it’s first 4K camera, the EOS- 1D C.  Unlike other DSLRs that shoot at a max of 1920 X 1080, the 1D C shoots at an astounding 4096 X 2160 at 24 frames per second (while still offering a 1920 X 1080 shooting mode).  A highlight of the 1D C is that it features a “Log Gamme option” that Canon suggests will produce a “film-like” dynamic range.  The camera also features 8-bit 4:2:2 color sampling (8-bit 4:2:0 Full HD 1920 x 1080, H.264 format), uncompressed HDMI output for 1920 x 1080 video, and industry standard timecode and codec support.

With the Canon EOS – 1D C comes a new line of Cinema lenses.
Lenses are said to include:
-CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L S (EF mount)
-CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L SP (PL mount)
-CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L S (EF)
-CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L SP (PL)
The Canon EOS-1D C will be available this year at the suggested retail price of US $15,000 (body only).
