Canon is rumored to be working on a new EOS 1D C Mark II DSLR camera. The hybrid HDSLR is supposed to be unveiled with 8K video recording capabilities.
It is generally considered to announce video-based products at the NAB 2017. The event will open its doors in April 2017. So the successor to the EOS 1D C camera might be announced with 8K video at this show.
The EOS-1D C was built to shoot cinematic quality, in a compact and versatile DSLR body. It is able to capture 4K (4096 x 2160), 24p (23.976) content directly to its on-board CF memory cards. It does this by using an 8-bit 4:2:2, high bit rate Motion JPEG compression scheme.
Canon EOS 1D C Mark II rumored to be coming in 2017 with 8K video recording
The Japan-based company launched the 1D X camera back in 2012 and the 1D C came one year later. It was the first DSLR to meet the European Broadcasting Union HD Tier 1 requirements for use in HD broadcast production.
The EOS 1D X Mark II camera was announced in February 2016 as the company’s new flagship DSLR model. Videographers are still waiting for a Mark II version of the 1D C.
Trusted sources are reporting that Canon will skip the 6K and offer 8K video recording in the 1D C Mark II. Stay tuned with us for more information.
