Canon 1DC – now available & in stock
I think this is worth mentioning. A very strong competitor in the HDSLR and large sensor camera realm has arrived and is available in limited stock.
While the price of $11,999 isn’t really a bargain (initially announced for $15k), this camera does has some very interesting specs for professional videographers and filmmakers. Many have been waiting for this camera since its initial announcement in April of 2012.
Here are the details for those who have forgotten what the Canon 1DC is about:
– Internal 4K (4,096 x 2,160) recording with 4:2:2 colour
_sampling (direct to CF cards)
– 8-bit Motion JPEG compression
– high ISO sensitivity up to 25,600
– Clean HDMI out (Full HD, 4:2:2, too bad, no SDI)
– Canon Log Gamma
– 24p support during 4K shooting
– 24, 25, 30, 50 and 60p frame rate support in Full HD
– Full-frame sensor with crop support (APS-H, Super 35mm)
