Canon EOS 1D C videospiegelreflex aangekondigd

Door -

Al bij de aankondiging van de EOS 1D X eind 2011 toonde Canon een prototype van een DSLR speciaal gericht op video. Deze is nu officieel aangekondigd en heet de Canon EOS 1D C. De camera gebruikt grotendeels dezelfde elementen waaruit de 1D X is opgebouwd: de body,  de 18 megapixel fullframesensor, de dual digic 5+ processor en ga zo maar door. Maar in tegenstelling tot de 1D X en 5D Mark III èn de C300 kan deze camera in 4K resolutie opnemen en heeft deze camera een clean HDMI output (wat we eerder tegenkwamen op de Nikon D800 en D4). Hierdoor is het mogelijk om in Full HD op te nemen met een 4:2:2 subsampling met een externe recorder. Bij 4K video-opnames is het enkel mogelijk om in 8-bit motionJPEG op te nemen op de CF-kaart.

De 4K-opname gebeurt zonder downsampling; er wordt hiervoor een 16:9 APS-H uitsnede genomen van de sensor. Voor Full HD kun je kiezen om gebruik te maken van de volledige sensor of een Super35mm uitsnede die erg aanleunt tegen de APS-C uitsnede. Canon beweert dat alles intern is aangepast om zo de grote datastroom en hitte te kunnen verwerken, waardoor er ook geen opnamelimiet is. Opnemen kan in alle formaten met 24p en in Full HD en 720p heb je ook de keuze voor al de andere snelheden: 25p, 23p, 50p en 60p. Net als bij de 1D X kun je ook nog steeds foto’s maken met twaalf en veertien beelden per seconden. Ook kun je 8 megapixel-foto’s uit je 4K opnames destileren. Hierdoor is deze camera uitermate geschikt voor (foto)reportagewerk waarbij video een belangrijke rol speelt. Alleen heeft Canon wel de Flash Sync poort vervangen met een aansluiting voor een koptelefoon.

Verder is ook de ‘Canon Log Gamma’-functie ingebouwd, waardoor je een fletsere video-opname krijgt, die echter een hoger dynamisch bereik heeft. Hierdoor heb je in de nabewerking weer meer speelruimte voor kleurcorrecties. De prijs voor de Canon 1D C ligt rond de $15.000. De exacte europrijs is nog niet beken. De Canon EOS 1D C wordt in oktober dit jaar verwacht.

Canon expands Cinema EOS System with new EOS-1D C digital SLR supporting 4K video capture

The first SLR camera of its kind, the EOS-1D C offers a unique and highly portable package optimised for high-quality video recording. Advanced creative flexibility is provided with support for a range of resolutions and variable frame rates. 4K video is recorded using 8-bit Motion JPEG compression at 24p, and Full HD (1920 x 1080) video capture is available at frame rates up to 1080/60p. The camera supports internal recording to CF cards at all resolutions up to and including 4K, offering enhanced mobility. Video can also be output to external recorders1 via an integrated HDMI terminal using an uncompressed YCbCr 4:2:2 signal.London, UK, 12 April, 2012 – Canon today announces the introduction of the new EOS-1D C, a digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera targeting the motion picture, television and high-resolution production industries. Delivering outstanding video quality, advanced low light performance and film-like dynamic range, the compact and lightweight EOS-1D C supports in-camera 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video recording with 4:2:2 colour sampling, offering greater creative freedom for video professionals.

The EOS-1D C also features Canon Log Gamma, which facilitates the capture of high quality video rich in exposure latitude and dynamic range. Ideal for video professionals who want to retain the maximum amount of information without huge file sizes, Canon Log Gamma offers a dynamic range uniquely comparable to film, minimising shadowdetail loss and highlight-detail loss to provide greater grading freedom for colourists in post-production.

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

Advanced performance meets creative flexibility

Based on the core specifications of the EOS-1D X, the EOS-1D C provides exceptional image quality and versatility, with an 18.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor. Optimised for high quality video capture, the sensor provides video professionals with the freedom to adjust image resolution to suit a subject or desired output. During 4K shooting pixels are cropped to an area equivalent to an APS-H sensor, preventing the need to resize or scale the image, ensuring maximum image quality. Additionally, a Super 35mm crop in Full HD recording caters for cinematographers who typically work in the Super 35mm field of view.

The sensor provides high quality performance in all conditions, delivering advanced creative blurring and light capturing abilities when used in combination with Canon’s EF Cinema prime lenses. Its size enables professionals to achieve an extremely shallow depth of field with beautiful background blur, and sensitivity up to ISO 25,600 provides excellent quality and reduced noise in low-light situations.

In addition, support for 24, 25, 30, 50 and 60p frame rates in Full HD resolution shooting provides additional flexibility, satisfying the shooting needs of professionals across the industry. Industry-standard timecode and codec support and a choice of compression methods provides compatibility with established workflow processes, facilitating easy editing and grading immediately after shooting.

The EOS-1D C ships with an exclusive software package, including a suite that allows 4K/Motion JPEG and Full HD/60p video shot on the camera to be output on an external monitor2 with no loss of image quality. It also enables video shot with Canon Log Gamma to be output on a monitor with standard video gamma applied.

Additional advanced applications, including Picture Style Editor and EOS Utility, also enable adjustments to various camera settings to be conducted from a PC. Real-time procedures, such as the editing and registration of picture styles or checking results on a monitor, can be conveniently performed on-set using a PC or Mac – allowing users to promptly carry out adjustments, and ensuring efficient shooting and post-production procedures.

EF lenses and EF Cinema Lenses – freedom to explore

As part of the EOS system, the EOS-1D C is compatible with more than 60 EF lenses, all of which offer high resolutions to support 4K image capture. The EF lens series offers exceptional creative freedom, with focal length options ranging from 8mm to 800mm. Over 70 million EF lenses have been manufactured since the EOS system launched in 1987 – a measure of its unparalleled quality and popularity. As part of the Cinema EOS System, Canon has also introduced a range of 4K EF Cinema Lenses, utilising the company’s unique optical heritage to produce leading-quality lenses optimised for high-quality video capture.
