Canon Cinema EOS-1D C, shoots video in 4K at 24fps
The Canon Cinema EOS-1D C, first announced in April, is now shipping in Japan. The high-end full-frame camera is the first on the market to be able to shoot video in the Ultra HD format with a resolution of 4096x2160. US customers can expect to get their hands on the new flagship camera for $11,999 when it goes on sale by the end of the week.
Camera ships with Wi-Fi, GPS
Canon has quickly introduced a direct competitor to Nikon's new D600 and Sony's Alpha 99, unveiling the EOS 6D full-frame prosumer DSLR. The 6D appears to merge features from the 5D series, pairing the Digic 5+ image processor of the Mark III with a new 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor that falls closer to the specs of the Mark II, though the new offering is priced below either of the older models.
Full-frame sensor touted, pop-up flash confirmed
Images for a new compact camera from Sony, allegedly with a full-frame sensor, have appeared online. Photos of the Sony RX1, spotted by Photoprice.ca, shows a camera similar to the RX100 in terms of size and general build, but is claimed to have a sensor that would compete with more expensive and high-end models used by professional photographers.
Sketchy on any real details
Sony has confirmed that it still intends to offer a full-frame camera in its Alpha cameras. The company tipped its hand to the BJP at a recent news conference in Athens when it unveiled the crop-frame, translucent mirror Alpha A65 and A77. The company declined to provide any further details.
