Canon’s RED?
Received this spec list in regards to a video camera with an EF mount.

– Unconventional case, more like a Hasselblad.
– Alloy heatsink for extended shoot times and lower heat related picture noise.
– FF 4k sensor, no line skipping and much reduced jello effect
– ISO 100-1600
– Pellicle Mirror however it can be flipped up if a OVF isn’t required to regain the lost 2/3 stop.
– EF fitment
– AF when pellicle mirror is down
– Digital Follow focus to control lenses electronically
– Twin CF slots
– Add on module with SSD drive for extended shooting, like a virtual film mag.
– 4:4:4 SDI out
– HDMI out
– 3D LUT capacity

This is currently a “skunk works project that was initiated with the 5D video explosion. Designed to be a base body, leveraging the existing EF glass. 3rd parties left to develop rails, matte boxes etc.”

  1. Looks more like admin’s wishlist to get traffic.

    This have-it-all camera will be a dream for movie makers but will not be available until 2014. Given canon’s track record of offering only what-is-necessary, while introducing a game changer, we will see a pretty basic stuff, just good enough to compete with RED and not a threat to SONY. Yes the camera cartel a.k.a canon, sony, pana still are in control of broadcast and movie markets

  2. looks insane. I can see doubt and promise at the same time.. however consider where the world was at with technology 5 years ago… and then 10 years ago.. high priced or not, this seems entirely possible. i’d even believe it if they said the camera could float and not need a tripod or dolly… well, thats a stretch… but if it happens, i guess i wouldnt be THAT shocked.
