Shape is a small canadian company who’s VDSLR accessories I tend to use often.
Their products are high-quality, reliable, built well but tend to be a bit heavy.
The Canon 1DC cage is no exception.
It’s robust, has a lot of accessory attachment holes and I like the 360 degree push button adjustable top...
Canon’s European pro video product specialist Paul Atkinson explains what “approved for broadcast by the EBU” means.
The big news is, that 100% content can now be shot on the Canon 1DC and be approved for broadcast. (the approved method is 4K content on a full HD timeline).

When asked to produce/shoot and edit the promotional video for the 14th international Beethoven competition which will take place during June 2013 in Vienna Austria, it was clear for me that I will deploy my Canon 1DC for it and shoot a 4k master.
The process of pre-selecting candidates for this competition is a worldwide effort. Distinguish judges in different cities had to listen to hours of music played by different candidates. Since I am located in Vienna that’s where I joined them.

Recently, Canon announced the availability of the long-awaited 25p 4K firmware for its filmmaking-focused DSLR, the Canon 1DC (watch my Canon 1DC review video here and our comparison to the Sony F55 here).

This makes the camera a whole lot more interesting to filmmakers and production companies in said countries. However, if you think you can download the firmware update and install it yourself, you are mistaken: Canon requires you to hand your 1DC over to a Canon-certified service center to perform the upgrade....
The Canon 1DC has generated a lot of fuzz when it was presented at NAB 2012. So far we’ve been waiting for the release of the camera (coming on January 2nd) and there haven’t been any real reviews yet. Here’s a new ad by Canon that shows the camera’s photo capabilities when taking a still from the 4K video it produces.
It’s obvious that there are downsides to taking stills from a 4K video which are mentioned briefly in the ad, this is certainly a feature that should be reviewed and tested thoroughly before making a buying decision....
