What’s Next From Canon, NAB and Beyond

What’s Next From Canon, NAB and Beyond

While the announcements today had some positives and a big glaring negative (someone please explain their mirrorless strategy to me), Canon is far from done in 2015 and we’ll see a host of new products in the coming months.

EF Lenses
We’re going to see a new 50 f/1.8 STM soon, as well as a new 70-300 non-L, non-DO lens. We don’t know exactly when they’re coming, but we’re told they definitely are. There are no other lenses we’ve been told about that are imminent. I wish someone would say 35L :)

EOS Cameras
We haven’t heard anything definitive about what EOS camera would be coming next. The obvious choices are an EOS-1D X Mark II and an EOS 5D Mark IV. In case you were wondering, we haven’t heard anything about a replacement for the EOS-1D C.

Cinema EOS
NAB is in April, and we’re told Canon will be making it a major announcement show this year. We’re told the Cinema EOS C300 will get a replacement and that it will shoot 4K. We haven’t received the same confirmation about an EOS C500 replacement. We’re also told there’s a chance Canon shows a new style of Cinema EOS camera, which would become the flagship and compete directly with the Arri Alexa.

I suspect there will be a lens or two announced, though we haven’t heard anything.

Other Video Products at NAB
We’re told that Canon will announce a GH4 competitor for NAB. It will be some kind of 4K ILC camera, we’ve heard the camera will have swappable parts, such as the grip and the viewfinder. We have no information on what lens mount it would be. We are told that it’s an “entry level” cinema product.

We’re also told a fixed lens Cinema EOS C100 style camera is coming and could be called the XC-10 (this could change), and that it will shoot 4K. Since it will have a fixed lens, I doubt it’s part of the Cinema EOS family.

We will be at NAB this year and hope to bring some fresh content with a few partners.

Canon EOS-1D C Price Drops Coming to North America

Canon EOS-1D C Price Drops Coming to North America

After the report that the Canon EOS-1D C had officially dropped in price in Hong Kong, we’ve been asked a few times if the same is going to happen in North America and Europe.

We’re told that something on pricing will happen on February 1, 2015 in the United States, there was no word from elsewhere around the globe. We weren’t told what the drop in price would be, but to “hold off buying a 1D-C until at least February 1, 2015″.

Canon EOS-1D C Coming Down in Price Again?

Canon EOS-1D C Coming Down in Price Again?

It looks like Canon Hong Kong has dropped the price of the Canon EOS-1D C down to what coverts to $7000USD. Will we see this sort of price decrease in Europe or North America? Only time will tell.

From EOSHD
“According to EOSHD forum member Fabuloux, whose local dealer now sells the 1D C for HKD 54,000 ($7000 US dollars) the low price is a result of Canon lowering the official list price to $61,999 HK dollars. Sure enough you can view the new price on the official Canon Hong Kong website here.  That is now MUCH closer to the RRP in Hong Kong of the plain old 1D X, which sells for $44,000 ($5700 US dollars).”

The Canon EOS-1D C currently lists for $11,999 at B&H Photo.
