New Cinema Camera & Lenses for NAB 2013
By| February 12, 2013
NAB 2013 April 6 – April 11 – Las Vegas, Nevada
Canon will be announcing new cinema lenses and a new cinema camera for NAB 2013 we are told.
The camera will sit somewhere between the EOS C100 and EOS C300, but will not be a direct replacement for the EOS C100. It will have both a PL and EF mount option. At present, no specifications for the camera have been given. Canon may also show a prototype that would come above the C500, but apparently that has yet to be decided internally.
Lenses, no mention of focal length. One will be a zoom and the other a prime. There is some suggestion both could be “lower quality” version of Canon’s current cine lenses. This is something similar to what Leica is doing with their cinema lens lineup.
No mention of a DSLR being announced for the show. I would expect some goodies for the EOS-1D C to come around NAB in the form of a firmware update. We already know they’ll be adding 25P in 4K, maybe there are a few other things they could add?
