The Canon EOS 1DC, an HDSLR that shoots 4K. Impressive, yet hard to handle in terms of data workflow. But there’s also the super35 crop-mode, that only picks the 35mm portion of its full-frame sensor. We found this mode delivers a very fine, sharp and clean image, a lot nicer than on any other HDSLR before.
Johnnie Behiri took the 1DC out for a spin and shot a short clip to show you a little super35 ALL-I (codec) footage. Make sure you download and see the source clip (IT’S PRORES) on vimeo: LINKJohnnie Behiri says:Please regard the footage as “work in progress”. (I will try and upload more test footage in different frame rates and camera modes in the near future).
The very short camera test was intended to check how good the S35 All-I mode is “out of the box” ready for delivery.
No CC or sharpness applied in post.

Well there’s not much time left until we know what’s going on here, but what we know for sure is that we’ll see a nice cinema camera today.
As usual there’s more and more info leaking prior to the event and creativevideo.co.uk (via cinescopophilia) has added a placeholder (as seen above) to their lineup of cameras in store which they’re calling the “Canon EOS 300C super 35mm camcorder with EF lens mount” and they threw in a slightly altered old picture of the 4k hairdryer we’ve seen last year at Canon Expo.
– EF lens mount
– Dual CF Card Slots
– Built in ND filters
– Super35mm Sensor
– HDMI and HDSDI output
