More Rumors About Canon Super 35 Video Camera. *Update* 3 Cameras.
Today Canon Rumors announced that there may be three new lenses to go along with the new video camera announcement from Canon on November 3rd, here in Hollywood. I would guess that Canon may want to compete directly with Sony on this one and we could see 35mm, 50mm and 85mm PL mount glass. I have yet to see a copy of the Paramount Studios location email. CR is also reporting that the new S35 camera will record to CF cards. This could be a plus as SD cards are generally a pain simply because of their size. Here are the main points that seem to have merit so far.
* A Super 35mm sized CMOS sensor.
* PL and EF mounts.
* 4:2:2 at either 8 bit or 10 bit. 50MBPS
* Top Mount LCD monitor. Possibly detachable.
* 10-12K price range. Possibly more.
I just got word that we may possibly see three cameras announced from Canon this November 3rd, 2011. It may very well be a $5K Super35/APS-C sensor video camera or the 5D3. Either way, we will be the winner that day. Options are always good.
