Now under the umbrella of the Cinema EOS System, Canon is extending the flexibility of digital 4K origination with the EOS-1D C - the first Canon hybrid DSLR to offer onboard 4K motion imaging and Full HD motion imaging on CF cards, in a rugged, ultra-compact form factor. Coupled with Canon's compact EF-mount lenses, the EOS-1D C facilitates 4K image origination in the tightest and most challenging environments, opening up fresh cinematic opportunities along the way.
For anyone familiar with Canon's 5D Mark II or 1D product line, the size and weight of the EOS-1D C will be immediately familiar. The EOS-1D C features an 18.1-megapixel full frame CMOS image sensor that offers a wide range of image acquisition options, including 4K (4096 x 2160), HD (1920 x 1080); or 18-megapixel (5184 x 3456) still images. The 4K is recorded as Motion JPEG; the HD is recorded as H.264; and the still images are recorded as RAW or JPEG. All of the selected motion imaging formats can be recorded as normal gamma-corrected video or with Canon Log. In addition, like with other Cinema EOS products, the EOS-1D C exhibits incredible low-light performance, ensuring optimum image quality under conditions of extremely low scene illumination, essential for natural-looking image capture when shooting in challenging environments. For capturing stills, the EOS-1D C offers the same level of high performance as an EOS DSLR, with top-of-the-range focusing, exposure, and burst mode.
The EOS-1D C is designed to go where other 4K cameras cannot go - into hostile environments, into very cramped spaces, mounted on the end of extended jib arms, or embedded on-set. With onboard 4K recording at 24p or HD recording at a range of frame rates up to 60p; and Clean HD via HDMI, the EOS-1D C offers additional capabilities for film and TV production as well as specialty image acquisition applications. For added versatility, record start/stop can be remotely controlled by EOS Utility Software via a WFT unit.

As a DP/photographer on various film and TV productions, the 1DC is the best camera I could have hoped for. I shoot both videos and stills and it doesn't get any better than that, even compared to newer releases from other brands. The MJPEG 4K image was, I believe, a very smart choice as it gives the camera a unique look, very close to 35mm film. It does not look "video". The 8-bit is somewhat limiting, as it was on the 5D Mark 2, but the image is sharp and more importantly, soulful. I'm hoping it will not disappear from Canon's line of cinema products as I'm waiting to see improvements such as 4K out via HDMI and peaking on the LCD. HD recording at 4:2:2 colour sampling would a definite plus as well but since it outputs uncompressed HD, not a big problem. Overall, a fantastic camera. Always looking forward to my next shoot with it!
This is one of the best cameras mankind has ever created, I use this camera for independent film making. I love the 4k's quality and the relation between the size of the camera and it's capabilities, The postproduction of 4k's mjpeg its very easy to work with. Very versatile camera, the best in photo and cinema. An absolute monster.
Great Camera but need more software implementation, 30p in 4k Mode, focus peaking, 50/60p in S35, continuos autofocus.
There was so much gear announced at NAB that it is just shipping out, with a ton of gear that has yet to even ship. 4K video was the main theme with a slew of camera announcements and delivery. This will be remembered as the year of 4K's real arrival...Read More
