It looks like Canon’s upcoming 4K video camera was revealed at an official Canon event somewhere in Asia. The images show a camera that looks similar to DSLR but with a fixed lens. Notably, it is much smaller than Canon’s EOS C100 and other current cinema cameras.
The camera has a 1″ sensor and a 10x optical zoom with a 8.9-89mm f/2.8-5.6 lens, which works out to a 24-240mm equivalent zoom range. It also includes built-in WiFi, an electronic viewfinder and a rear LCD.
We have previously seen rumors of a 4K video camera for $2500 or less due this spring and recently viewed a patent for a video lens applied to a 1″ sensor camera.
The most likely official US announcement time frame for this new 4K camera is at NAB 2015 in a couple weeks.
