Canon has unveiled its latest DSLR, the EOS-1D C.

Aimed at the makers of film and TV, the new addition to Canon’s Cinema EOS range has in-camera 4K (4,096 x 2,160) and video recording with 422 colour sampling.

Canon said 4K video can be recorded using 8-bit Motion JPEG compression at 24p, and full HD video capture is available at frame rates up to 1080/60p.

Based on the core specifications of the EOS-1D X, the EOS-1D C supports internal recording to CF cards at resolutions up to and including 4K.

Excluding 4K, video can be recorded to external devices via an HDMI terminal.

The EOS-1D C also features Canon Log Gamma, which Canon said would “facilitate the capture of high-quality video rich in exposure latitude and dynamic range”.

“The EOS-1D C is a fantastic addition to the Cinema EOS System,” said Canon Europe Professional Imaging marketing director Kieran Magee.

“Since the introduction of Cinema EOS we’ve had an excellent response from professionals who are hugely excited by the image quality and creative freedom the system offers.

“The new EOS-1D C will expand those creative options further – it’s a unique camera, supporting 4K video recording in a highly compact body that can be used in a number of different ways. We’re very excited to see what the professional community can achieve with it.”  

The EOS-1D C will be available from October for £10,000.
