Canon To Announce New Camera In Hollywood November 3rd, 2011. *Update*
If this has anything to do with the rumor I picked up last week about a possible new Super 35 4K camera from Canon then we are all in for one killer ride. Engadget is reporting a major announcement from Canon here in Hollywood. The event will take place November 3rd, 2011. Here is a rip from the Engadget post. Click here to check it out. Here are the possible specifications.
1. Canon Super 35 Sized CMOS Sensor. 2K and 4K Resolution with 10 or 12 Bit at 50Mbps.
2. 4K via 4 separate streams.
3. There will be two options Canon EF and PL Mount.
4. This is a Professional Video Camera not a DSLR.
5. Price point around $15K US.
Some of the announcement emails specify Paramount Studios as the announcement location. I have yet to confirm this but feel like it is a solid piece of information. Luckily I am only a few blocks from there! Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.
Canon will announce TWO cameras this November 3rd, 2011 at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. A Canon EF mount version and a PL mount version.
Carl Zeiss Lenses were used in the testing process of the new Super 35 camera. This seems a bit odd, but could very well be true.
The body style will be similar to the 4K hairdryer that was shown at Canon Expo in New York last year. It sounds like the LCD will be on top of the camera and not the camera left side.
