Canon USA Announces Canon Log Feature Upgrade for the EOS 5D Mark IV

Canon USA Announces Canon Log Feature Upgrade for the EOS 5D Mark IV

By Canon Rumors | April 20, 2017 | Canon DSLR News

We first reported that the EOS 5D Mark IV would get a C-Log update last month, and a few days later a more indepth upgrade list came from an unknown source. It looks like the detailed firmware specifications list from a “new source” was a nice and detailed hoax. We very rarely get caught but them, but we were this time. As has been the case in the past, if anything is extremely detailed as far as a rumor goes, it’s likely not legitimate.

Apologies if we got people’s hopes up, but everything we post isn’t always 100% correct.

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 20, 2017 – In a move to help meet the demands of professional filmmakers, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the availability of a feature upgrade for the EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR camera that will add the ability to record with Canon Log. With this upgrade, the EOS 5D Mark IV can achieve a cinematic look similar to what can be achieved using Cinema EOS cameras, allowing it to serve as a second camera on a Cinema EOS shoot or to stand alone as a cinema camera. Current EOS 5D Mark IV camera owners can have the Canon Log feature upgrade installed for $99 at any of the Canon service centers across the U.S. starting in July. The camera will also be available for sale (body only) with the feature upgrade pre-installed starting in July, with an estimated retail price of $3,599.00*.

Canon Log uses the image sensor’s characteristics in a way that allows for a wide dynamic range, minimal loss of detail in shadows and highlight areas and an increased range of choices when color grading. Color grading options available with Canon Log include optimized color saturation, accurate colors with minor color bias, visual continuity and accurate skin tones.

Canon Log also works with and complements several EOS 5D Mark IV camera features including 4K shooting, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, high speed 119.9p shooting in HD and 59.94p shooting in Full HD. Additional features include Movie Servo AF allowing the camera to focus on a subject even when the shutter button is not used, the ability to register custom shooting modes in Canon Log and movie shooting in Canon Log on a compatible iOS® or Android™ device using the free Canon Camera Connect app1.

To learn more about the feature upgrade and how to get it installed, please visit usa.canon.com/canonlog5d4.

The EOS 5D Mark IV camera with Canon Log will be shown at the NAB show in Las Vegas, NV, April 24-27, in the Canon U.S.A., Inc. Booth #C4325 in the Central Hall of the LVCC. Follow Canon throughout the show on Instagram at @CanonUSA and Twitter at @CanonUSApro.

First Look: Canon Compact Servo 70-200 T4.4

By Canon Rumors | April 20, 2017 | Cinema EOS News

B&H Photo has posted their first look for the brand new Canon Compact Servo 70-200 T4.4 cinema lens.

From B&H Photo:

In this video, we take our first look at Canon’s latest addition to the compact servo lineup. The new 70-200mm T4.4 Lens keeps cinematographers and ENG videographers in mind with servo compatibility, full manual control, and parfocality. With color-matching to the existing cinema EF line, and gear-matching to Canon’s previous 18-80mm lens, the 70-200mm T4.4 brings a classic zoom range into new, versatile form.

Review: Canon EOS 77D by DPReview

Review: Canon EOS 77D by DPReview

By Canon Rumors | April 19, 2017 | Canon Reviews

DPReview has completed their review of the Canon EOS 77D, a DSLR that has confused some people in the Canon world as to why it exists. While it is a rebadged “Rebel T7s”, it does seem to offer enough to make it a worthwhile option at this price point.

From DPReview:

Many newly released cameras are aiming ever further up-market. Part of this comes down to that market shrinking, but also, cameras have broadly become so good in recent years that there isn’t much room for more than two tiers of so-called ‘entry-level’ Rebels. Perhaps that’s what Canon was thinking, because for a camera that’s this capable and well-rounded, it would seem a disservice to bestow upon it a moniker that’s synonymous with the company’s more basic and pedestrian of interchangeable lens cameras.

The Canon EOS 77D is a well-rounded and well-sorted camera. The ergonomics are great, Live View performance is superb and Dual Pixel Autofocus continues to impress. The viewfinder is a little on the small side and it still doesn’t shoot 4K video, but as an all-around package for the enthusiast photographer, the EOS 77D deserves a look. Read the full review
