The Canon CINE-SERVO 17-120mm T2.95 lens is a new servo zoom lens for Cinema EOS cameras like the C500, C300 and C100. It covers a Super35 image circle an remains T2.95 through 91mm and achieves a max iris of T3.6 at the full 120mm zoom end. [click to continue…]
NAB is just over a week away and there have been no reliable rumors or leaks of new cameras from Canon yet. It’s looking like we won’t see a new Canon EOS Cinema camera at NAB 2014. However, a new screenshot has surfaced showing off what appears to be a new lens for the Canon EOS Cinema line – this one with a servo zoom ring. [click to continue…]
Canon has issued firmware updates for its C100, C300 and C500 cinema cameras that expand the sensitivity range to ISO 80,000, along with several other feature additions and enhancements.
The EOS C100 and C300 firmware updates will be available from Canon in November 2013, while the C500 firmware update will be available in December 2013.
Check out the feature excerpts for each of the cameras below. [click to continue…]
Another source has sent me info (thanks) on Canon’s next DSLR, stating that it won’t be the 75MP+ behemoth undergoing field testing now. Instead, the source claims Canon will launch a DSLR with a 44.7MP sensor (8192 x 5462) that provides 4K cinema capability without bayer artifacts, and can do UHDTV with a slight crop.

The expense of Canon EOS Cinema cameras and lenses is no secret. With cameras over $25k and lenses around $45k, they are out of reach for most people’s purchasing plans.
While I certainly don’t recommend anyone go into debt to purchase a camera, there are working pros who certainly stand to benefit from Adorama’s 0% financing of Canon’s EOS Cinema line. The deal applies for purchases of relevant EOS Cinema gear and provides 0% financing over a 24-month term.
Don’t get ahead of yourself though – Canon C100 payments would otherwise cover a lightly-used Honda Civic, while Canon C500 payments would put you in the range of Range Rover payments.
Details are available on the respective product pages here at Adorama.
With NAB 2013 just around the corner in April, expect to hear some new rumors on video-related gear. To that end, the latest rumors point to a new Canon EOS Cinema camera situated between the Canon C100 and C300 and offering a PL and EF mount version.
No additional details on the specs of such camera at this point, but there will be plenty more at or before NAB 2013.
Additionally, two new Canon Cinema lenses are expected – a zoom and a prime. Canon’s Cinema zoom lenses have been $40k+ and cover an APS-C image circle, while the prime lenses are full frame and have been in the $5k+ range. I would expect these to follow suit.
