Canon is making an upgrade to the EOS C100 cinema camera that will support the awesome Dual Pixel AF feature that was introduced in the Canon 70D. The upgrade should be available in February 2014 for $500, and requires sending your EOS C100 to a Canon service center.
You can find out more about this upgrade here on Canon’s website.
The EOS C100 and C300 firmware updates will be available from Canon in November 2013, while the C500 firmware update will be available in December 2013.
Check out the feature excerpts for each of the cameras below. [Read more…]
After yesterday’s rumor of a new Canon EOS Cinema camera to be unveiled around NAB 2013, new rumors surfaced of an “entry-level” cinema camera (perhaps a Canon EOS C50) that would be situated below the Canon C100.
While Canon’s cinema cameras are certainly popular, they are still well out of the reach of many amateurs and low-end pros who are shooting video with Canon DSLRs such as the Rebel T4i and Canon 60D. At $6500, the C100 is still quite a bit of a reach for many of these shooters.
Would a $3000 Canon C50 push these enthusiasts and low-end pros to step up to a dedicated cinema camera? Would you pay $3000 or more for such a camera? If a C50 is in the works, what kind of specs could it bring to the table and not cannibalize the C100?
With NAB 2013 just around the corner in April, expect to hear some new rumors on video-related gear. To that end, the latest rumors point to a new Canon EOS Cinema camera situated between the Canon C100 and C300 and offering a PL and EF mount version.
No additional details on the specs of such camera at this point, but there will be plenty more at or before NAB 2013.
Additionally, two new Canon Cinema lenses are expected – a zoom and a prime. Canon’s Cinema zoom lenses have been $40k+ and cover an APS-C image circle, while the prime lenses are full frame and have been in the $5k+ range. I would expect these to follow suit.
