The Canon Cinema EOS-1D C Camera is the first Canon hybrid DSLR to offer onboard 4K motion imaging and Full HD motion imaging on CF cards, in a rugged, ultra-compact form factor. Coupled with Canon's compact EF-mount lenses, the EOS-1D C facilitates 4K image origination in the tightest and most challenging environments.

The EOS-1D C features an 18.1-megapixel full frame CMOS image sensor that offers a wide range of image acquisition options, including 4K (4096 x 2160), HD (1920 x 1080), or 18-megapixel (5184 x 3456) still images. The 4K is recorded as Motion JPEG; the HD is recorded as H.264; and the still images are recorded as RAW or JPEG. All of the selected motion imaging formats can be recorded as normal gamma-corrected video or with Canon Log.

In addition, as with other Cinema EOS products, the EOS-1D C exhibits incredible low-light performance, ensuring optimum image quality under conditions of extremely low scene illumination, essential for natural-looking image capture when shooting in challenging environments. For capturing stills, the EOS-1D C offers the same level of high performance as an EOS DSLR, with top-of-the-range focusing, exposure, and burst mode.

The EOS-1D C is designed to go where other 4K cameras cannot: hostile environments, very cramped spaces, mounted on the end of extended jib arms, or embedded on-set. 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. For added versatility, record start/stop can be remotely controlled by EOS Utility Software via a WFT unit (not included).

Compact, Durable, Self-Contained 4K Video Recording

The EOS-1D C is an HD video powerhouse providing cinematographers 4K video capture in a single unit, with no need for external power or recording devices. The EOS-1D C is fully self-contained, with the ergonomic ease-of-use portability one expects from a Canon DSLR. Control layout is intuitive for both still and video shooting and the compact size provides an unobtrusive method to getting your desired footage. The EOS-1D C is also fully sealed for protection against dust and moisture.

Canon 18.1 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor

The EOS-1D C carries the latest generation of Canon's Full-Frame CMOS sensor. With a Full-Frame sensor, Canon EF and EF Cinema lenses will perform to their true potential, while improved signal-to-noise ratio provide clearer shadows and highlights in both bright and low-light environments. Achieve high quality results across the ISO range from 100 to 51,200, expandable from ISO 50 to 204,800. The sensor in the EOS-1D C also minimizes the rolling shutter effect with a high-speed read across the sensor bus for true-to-life images.

4K Motion JPEG YCbCr 4:2:2, 8-bit Video Recording

The EOS-1D C is a completely self-contained device that captures 4K video in a cropped-sensor configuration at 24fps in YCbCr color space with a sampling ratio of 4:2:2 and 8-bit depth. Color and luminescence are preserved, while footage can easily adapt to existing post-production workflows without conversion. 4K video can be monitored on the camera's rear LCD, or HD video can be output via HDMI to an external recorder for proxy editing. 4K files can also be played in native resolution using the EOS MOVIE Player.

Full HD Recording and Super 35mm Crop Mode 

In addition to standard frame rates of 30fps, 25fps and 24fps, the EOS-1D C also enables Full HD recording at 60fps and 50fps and supports high-speed shooting for spectacular slow-motion footage. The camera's built-in LCD monitor can both preview and play back footage at its native frame rate. The EOS-1D C also supports Super 35mm Crop in Full HD at 30fps, 25fps, and 24fps. Image compression is H.264 and HDMI support permits external monitoring and playback of footage independent of shooting mode. When monitoring Super 35mm Crop images, the monitor automatically masks the image to aid composition.

Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors

The EOS-1D C utilizes dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors for stunning speed and image quality. Each DIGIC 5+ Image Processor contains twin 4-channel A/D converters for outstanding image quality, and refined algorithms reduce noise at high ISO values. The EOS-1D C also applies real-time correction of chromatic aberration and other optical artifacts based on data stored in-camera. Lens data can be added and deleted by using the included EOS Utility software.

Canon Log Gamma

Canon Log Gamma is a setting that sets the EOS-1D C to maximize dynamic range and provide a wide exposure latitude. The files produced using log format are ideal for post-production processes where corrections, color matching, and grading are applied, providing users with a high level of creative freedom in post-production without substantially degrading image quality. When using Canon Log, the EOS-1D C can provide a dynamic range of up to 800%. 

HDMI Output with Time Code 

The EOS-1D C offers several new capabilities via HDMI output. Connect via HDMI to an external video recorder and output uncompressed YCbCb 4:2:2 8-bit video footage. Output frame rate is independent of shooting rate, allowing it to be matched to the capabilities of the external recorder. HDMI output supports Full HD video, even when recording 4K video to the on-board CF cards. Time code is embedded into the footage for easy synchronization of audio or visual effects. Camera control is also enabled via HDMI; the transport controls on the external recorder can be used to control the camera remotely. In addition, footage can be previewed simultaneously on the camera's LCD monitor and via the HDMI output for multiple monitoring options.

Compatibility with EF Cinema and EF Lenses 

The EOS-1D C is compatible with the full line of Canon EF lenses, including EF Cinema lenses (Cinema zooms are compatible only in Super 35mm Crop mode; Cinema primes are compatible in all modes). Ultra-wide, zoom, 4x macro, tilt-shift, and super-telephoto lenses in the EF line are tools to realize your most ambitious cinematic vision. EF Cinema Lenses merges the technology of advanced Canon cinema optics and compatibility with a broad array of industry-standard accessories.

Built-In Headphone Terminal

The EOS-1D C includes a built-in headphone terminal which outputs unprocessed sound, giving you the clear audio image while the camera is recording it.

WFT-E6A WiFi Unit With Remote Capabilities

The EOS-1D C can connect to an optional WiFi transmitter unit WFT-E6A to provide unique capabilities not found in competitive units. Users can control the EOS-1D C using any web-enabled devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablet PC's. Functions of the EOS-1D C with the WFT-E6A include the ability to adjust shooting parameters, start and stop the camera, monitor a remote feed and input metadata. Bluetooth v2.1 +EDR communicates with external GPS units to embed location data with your footage.

Fully Featured 12.0 fps, 18.1 Megapixel Full-Frame DSLR Camera

The EOS-1D C shares its heritage with the EOS-1 Series family and is a world-class DSLR camera besides being a cinema powerhouse. Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors and an 18.1 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor provide a burst shot rate of 12.0 fps for capturing the action with exceptional quality. With ISO sensitivity ranging from 100 to 51200, expandable to L: 50, H1: 102,400, H2: 204,800, the EOS-1D C allows you to grab the best possible shot even in the most challenging lighting. The 61-Point High-Density Reticular autofocus system with a coordinated 100,000 pixel RGB metering system provides sharp images with incredible color and clarity.


EOS-1D C Factory Update Features:

Sound Recording with Line Input

The EOS-1D C now accepts a line-level audio input via its mini 3.5mm connector, for users who want to use an optional outboard mixing console, for example, or a high-output microphone. In Line Input mode the standard input level is -8 dBV* with peaks up to +6 dBV. To accommodate different external sources, sound-recording levels are adjustable at 64 step levels.

*Distortion ratio may increase if the signal exceeds the standard input level of -8 dBV.

Peripheral Lens Correction Available on Select Cinema Lenses

  • CN-E15.5–47mm T2.8 L S
  • CN-E30–105mm T2.8 L S
  • CN-E14mm T3.1 L F
  • CN-E24mm T1.5 L F
  • CN-E50mm T1.3 L F
  • CN-E85mm T1.3 L F
  • CN-E135mm T2.2 L F

The new factory update for the EOS-1D C adds Peripheral Illumination Correction* under the Lens Aberration Correction menu for select Canon Cinema Lenses. By maintaining even illumination from corner to corner of each image frame, Peripheral Lens Correction virtually eliminates vignetting and other unevenness of light across the sensor, using specific lens characteristics such as focal length, aperture and distance settings.

*Lens aberration correction with Canon Cinema lenses requires the latest version of EOS Utility, which will be available mid-October 2013. 

Chromatic Aberration Correction Available on Select Cinema Lenses

  • CN-E15.5–47mm T2.8 L S
  • CN-E30–105mm T2.8 L S
  • CN-E14mm T3.1 L F
  • CN-E24mm T1.5 L F
  • CN-E50mm T1.3 L F
  • CN-E85mm T1.3 L F
  • CN-E135mm T2.2 L F 

The factory update also adds Chromatic Aberration Correction* under the Lens Aberration Correction menu for select Canon Cinema Lenses to help minimize color fringing in areas of an image that contain high-contrast color elements. It also helps reduce color bleeding, which often is more noticeable at picture edges and, as a result, can degrade perceived image quality.

Color fringing is a common pitfall of digital image capture when certain colors are not focused correctly through the lens at the exact point on the camera's sensor, but can be corrected at the time of shooting with this feature. 

*Lens aberration correction with Canon Cinema lenses requires the latest version of EOS Utility, which will be available mid-October 2013.
