You can never talk about cameras without mentioning Canon. The brand, after all, has built its reputation on creating some of the most advanced cameras in the world.
But Canon is only getting started as it develops the latest addition—and probably the best one yet—to its impressive lineup of cameras: the Canon Cinema EOS System S35mm 8K camera.
Here’s what we know about it:
It is Canon’s first 8K Camera in a Cinema EOS System
We all know how Canon loves to impress with its products, and the Canon Cinema EOS System S35mm 8K camera is no exception. With a super 35mm CMOS sensor and 8,192×4,320 pixel resolution, the Canon Cinema EOS System S35MM 8K camera can shoot at a frame rate of 60 frames per second. It also features an impressive 13+ stops dynamic range and wide color gamut that when combined with its low aberration 8K lens, produce incredibly stunning images.
It is made to adapt to different shooting styles
The Canon Cinema EOS System S35MM 8K camera will feature Canon’s advanced image processing technology, a pixel density of more than 300 pixels per inch and loads of other features that will make it one of the best out there when it comes to producing ultra-realistic images.
But with its massive specifications, the Canon Cinema EOS System S35MM 8K camera will still be housed in a compact body that takes mobility into consideration and a design that will make it highly operable in almost any setting. It will also feature an EF mount that is compatible with the wide range of interchangeable EF lens by Canon.
This means that the camera can be used in a wide variety of shooting styles producing stunning images for visual expression.
At the Inter BEE 2018, Canon presented a prototype camera body for its 8K concept and it is quite similar to the C300 Mark II. But Canon is still not sharing any details on how its finished product will look like or even when it will be released.
We can remember that the same prototype was shown at the Canon Expo in 2015, which means that Canon has developed this technology for a couple of years already. Canon’s Toshiyuki Akimoto sheds light on this explaining that the prototype was released to help with market research and see the future demand for 8K cameras. But with how Canon’s latest 8K prototype looked, we can guess that this concept will soon reach production stage.
