So no new camera body yet.
I still think will see a new cinema body, possibly a C200, an update to the c100, or something like a 5D C. Canon is losing market share daily.
you mean on video cameras I suspect...
They need a 1DC Mark II that shoots 8K. a halo project.
a 5DC would mean nothing.
A 5DC with sharp FF or 1.3x crop 4K video, C-Log, a decent codec and video-focused tools would be something- it would be even better if it did not have a mirror and had an electronic VF.
But simply the firmware update with outlined specs, if true, would help. Canon needs something to compete with Sony's FF mirrorless offerings from a video standpoint, which are gaining marketshare daily.
Also, I agree that a 1DC Mark II that shoots 6 or 8K would create the publicity they need, but hybrid shooters don't want huge, heavy cameras- they want an EDC carry. That's why the FF Sonys are doing so well.
