As seen in the pic compliments of engadget.com, Canon is starting up a Cinema line as designated by a red "C".

Looks like new cameras as well as new cinema lenses as designated by a large red ring at the adapter.

Discuss!!

4k sensor but only 1080 output at 30fps.... $16,000.... meh..... At that price I don't see why you wouldn't get an F3 with the firmware upgrade instead.

new cinema lenses look promising though.

Here are full specs of the Cinema focused camera. C300

Still no word on what the half hidden DSLR with a red "C" is in the back though... maybe a big teaser for a future release.

i kept hearing rumours about canon actually getting into the cine world but didnt think they would actually go for it. im waiting for physical results and samples. its good news nonetheless. because this is not their normal area so i dont think they will be ahead of the curve too much and might not be the best competition with the prices mentioned.

i second the interest in the glass more than the camera

I guess Canon got tired of whiny DPs wondering why they had to pay for still capabilities in their video cameras...

hopefully, I think $20k is extremely ridiculous given the specs.... historic for Canon maybe... definitely not historic for Hollywood.

And now they announce the new 4K Movie minded SLR prototype too. As if the 1D X didnt offer enough. How much ya wanna bet this is gonna have timecode and way better color handling? Maybe even a full res/data out feed.

If that had timecode capabilities, it would be pretty damn cool! Something tells me that there was no space left over for timecode out ports , but the question remains, if you want to record at 4K res, why go with this body? Where would have to be some significant reasons why you would choose this over some of the other offerings out there.

Personally I still hate the Red cameras. Yes they a have dealt with the audio concerns, but that damn camera still over heats way too fast and then the reboot time is just silly. And it's low light abilities are just non-existent. So maybe this new Canon 4K body is a real contender if it resolves some of the issues of the 5D2 and adds enough new bling. Otherwise it's still a still camera that shoots some video.

Youre right, forgot they already added that to the 1d X.

Answering the requests of cinematographers and filmmakers, the EOS-1D X includes two methods of SMPTE-compliant timecode embedding, Rec Run and Free Run, allowing multiple cameras or separate sound recording to be synced together in post production.
Timecode is the law that lets multiple pieces of gear to play together. This is absolutely essential to professional workflows.

So between the announcement of the Canon 1Dx and the other camera on top...let's call it Canon 1CX...is the 5DIII going to be a lower end version of both....or there's going to be a 5C in the future?...Just throwing it out there.

Wow, no kidding. They did it, just as was rumored... Interesting times these are. Professional video is getting cheaper and cheaper.
