Well Canon have lifted the lid on another fantastic camera. If you are into video then this camera is for you. The “C” in the name is a bold statement from Canon branding the camera as a creative camera.
From what I have read the Canon EOS 1D C shares almost the same features as the identically looking Canon EOS 1D X camera. The internal build and circuitry of the newer camera handles the output temperature of the never seen before (in this size camera) amazing 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video ability. In simpler terms AWESOME FULL HD VIDEO QUALITY. The camera also has some features similar to the Canon C300 with the ability to capture a wide dynamic range and exposure latitude.
I would love to get my hands on one of these. Just imagine what the output quality would be like on the Full Frame 18 Megapixel CMOS sensor would be like! In my opinion this camera would be perfect for the cinema, media, documentary and wildlife industries due to the ability to use the new range of Cine lenses. The camera still boasts 12 frames per second and also has the ability to capture high res still images while shooting video. Canon have done well to expand the range of cine products before the other “yellow” brand. Now it is just going to be a waiting game until this camera ships late in the year from the pristine Canon factories in Japan.

For me this camera is big, black and beautiful. I can’t wait to get my hands on one.
