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?
Canon EOS-1D C at B&H Photo $11,999

More EF Cine Lenses Coming
According to Erik Allen at Canon there are two more EF Cine prime lenses in the pipeline. An ultra wide solution, as well as a telephoto prime.
There’s also two more of the Cinema Primes, one would be an ultra-wide and one would be a telephoto over and above what we have already announced so we have two more in the pipeline and from there we will see where the market tells us we need to go.
