Canon Super 35 Video Camera. Rumor Update.


*Update* Our good friend and alli VisionWrangler reminded us of this video of old with Tim Smith from Canon U.S.A. Here he describes a camera we may very well see this November.
Thanks for pointing this one out VW! There is some key information here that could relate to the November 3rd, 2011 announcement. The PL mount zooms will handle “4K resolution” and are “Future Proof” according to the Canon rep. I have also been told that in addition to the 4:2:2 compression there will be an available upgrade to 4:4:4. Similar to the Sony S-Log upgrade. The email suggested a scalable sensor. Not really sure what that means, still waiting for a reply. According to the source, the November 3rd announcement is for media only. The camera will be available for filmmakers viewing on November 4th and 5th. I would guess at Paramount but not sure just yet. Stay tuned. I will update this post if any new info comes along.

Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood, California. After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography. About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
