We are within a day or so of the official announcement from Canon; however, the key aspects of the official press release we expect to see just surfaced from Canon Rumors. It confirms the previous spec list we had seen leaked from Japan and suggests that this camera is a worthy successor to the 1D X. It’s also notable that it comes in at $5,999, which is $800 less than the original 1D X launched at.
It features the previously-rumored 20.2MP full frame CMOS sensor that is “Canon-developed” (interesting wording). The standard sensitivity range is ISO 100-51,200 and can be expanded to ISO 50-409,600. For comparison sake, the Nikon D5‘s max native sensitivity is ISO 102,400 and the expanded sensitivity reaches up to ISO 3,280,000. [Read more…]
Convergent Design has dropped the price of its Odyssey7Q+ to $1795 (was $2295), which slots it in between the competing Atomos Ninja Assassin and Shogun. At $1795, it arguably offers more value than either Atomos option since the Odyssey7Q+ offers up to ProRes 4444 12-bit recording out of the box and includes a 256GB Convergent Design SSD. It offers 4K capture over both the HDMI and SDI inputs.
Additionally, the Odyssey7Q+ offers the ability to upgrade to RAW recording options with compatible cameras via a paid upgrade from Convergent Design. You can find the Odyssey7Q+ at the new price point here at B&H Photo.

The lens also has a Zeiss T* coating that reduces unwanted reflections and flare. [Read more…]
