Canon Middle East this week announced the development of a new feature upgrade for its EOS-1D C.

According to Canon the upgrade has been developed in response to feedback from the professional video community, and adds support for 25p recording at the camera's maximum 4K resolution.

Canon designed the EOS-1D C for the motion picture, television and high-resolution production industries, and claimed it is the world's first DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera to support 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video capture. The model offers a portable package optimised for optimum quality recording, and is designed to deliver enhanced low-light performance and film-like dynamic range.

The EOS 1D-C captures 4K 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, while Canon Log Gamma ensures exposure latitude and dynamic range - offering flexibility for video professionals during shooting, and for colourists in post-production.
