During yesterday’s WWDC event to introduce the new MacPro, Pro Display XDR and Pro Stand, along with a whole slew of software announcements. It turns out Apple was using an unreleased cinema camera from Canon for 8K capture. The camera was used to capture 4:4:4 ProRes 8K RAW.
Jonathan Morrison shows us the camera during a live stream from the WWDC event, you can see the camera in action in the video above.
We’ve mentioned in the past that Canon could be releasing a new Cinema EOS C300 Mark III sometime in 2019 and that there will be an upgrade option to allow the EOS C300 Mark III to capture 8K video for the users that desire the added pixels.
Canon originally showed off their 8K cinema camera at the Canon EXPO back in 2015. The development process has been a long one and I think we’re going to see Canon enter the 8K fold very soon. Canon was late to the 4K party and have said numerous times that they won’t be playing catch-up in that regard again.
Thanks for the Canon Rumors mention in the video.
