Word on the street is that the Sony FS100 will get a firmware update soon that will add aspect ratio options for 2.35:1 Cinemascope, 1.85:1 35mm theatrical and 1.66:1 Super 16mm. Additional improvements are expected to include 4x and 8x expanded focus settings. [click to continue…]

Canon Rumors posted some specs on the Canon Unicorn camera set to be revealed later today.
- Name: Canon EOS 300C
- EF and PL Versions
- Dual CF Card Slots
- Built in ND
- Super35 Sensor
- HDMI and HDSDI out
- Hot shoe mounted monitor w/ 2 XLR ins
- 1920 x 1080 resolution
- Also is able to record out of SDI
Aside from a couple of tweaks on this spec list, it sounds a lot like Sony’s FS100. If this were the final spec list, I think Canon will have failed to live up to the “historic” hype. On the plus side, that spec list looks like a $6,000 or so camera.
