Canon has announced a software upgrade for its EOS-1D C camera.

In response to feedback from the European professional video community, the manufacturer has added support for 25p recording at the camera’s maximum 4K resolution.

The EOS 1D-C captures 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video using 8-bit motion JPEG compression, with the ability to simultaneously output an uncompressed full HD (1920x1080) YCbCr 4:2:2 signal to an external recorder via its HDMI terminal.

Full HD video can also be recorded direct to CF cards at frame rates of up to 1080/60p.

The new feature upgrade will be available free of charge from April.
