Continue reading...Canon Watch is reporting that a Super35 8K Cinema EOS camera is currently in field testing. I have been unable to confirm this information, so please treat it accordingly.
Unnamed Canon 8K Cinema EOS camera specifications:
8K 3.2μm Super 35mm imaging sensor
Dual Gain Output
Dual Pixel AF II
Dual Native ISO
DIGIC DV X (Faster AF, Faster I/O, Faster UI)
DCI 8K 60fps 12b RAW
4K RGB (2-Green-pixel binning on the sensor) 90fps 12b RAW Output
I do not believe that the Cinema EOS C90 will be an 8K camera, so if this information is correct, it’s a new camera for the Cinema EOS lineup.
8K is coming sooner than later from Canon, the EOS R5 can’t be the only camera in their lineup capable of capturing 8K video. I don’t think we’ll see anything officially announced until at least April of 2021.
