The Canon EOS-1D C* represents a breakthrough in cinematography in a DSLR specifically designed for video, that is incredibly flexible, rugged and compact. Offering onboard 4K image capture, industry-standard codecs and interfaces, and incredible low light performance, the EOS-1D C helps make 4K filmmaking as creative as you want it to be.
For anyone familiar with Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II or the EOS-1D product line, the compact size and weight of the EOS-1D C will be immediately recognizable. Built with onboard 4K recording at 24P or HD recording at a range of frame rates up to 60p; and Clean HD via HDMI, the EOS-1D C offers additional capabilities for film and TV production as well as specialty image acquisition applications.
Coupled with Canon’s compact EF-mount lenses, the EOS-1D C facilitates 4K image origination in the tightest and most challenging environments, opening up fresh cinematic opportunities along the way.

The EOS-1D C is designed to perform wherever a scene may take it: hostile environments, very cramped spaces, mounted on the end of extended jib arms, or embedded on-set. For added versatility, record start/stop can be remotely controlled by Canon’s EOS Utility Software via a WFT unit.
Like other Cinema EOS products, the EOS-1D C exhibits incredible low-light performance, helping to ensure optimum image quality under conditions of extremely low scene illumination. When operating in DSLR mode the EOS-1D C offers top-of-the range focusing, exposure, and burst mode.
The EOS-1D C records the 4K signal as a YUV 4:2:2 at 24p Motion JPEG format directly to onboard CF cards. It can also externally record an HD time-coded proxy via HDMI output for use in an offline NLE system. The 4K file can be loaded directly into color grading systems that support the Motion JPEG file format; and the alternative HD recordings (H.264) on the CF cards can also be taken directly into color grading systems.
