Canon November 3 Announcement

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.

Canon November 3

Speculation surrounding Canon’s November 3 announcement continues to be a big topic of conversation (just what Canon wanted, right?).  Canon Rumors received another tip with a couple of vague specs.

The tipster claims a video camera with a Super 35 sensor (roughly APS-C sized), compact flash recording and 3 new lenses announced alongside the camera.  While that’s not much to go on, the new lenses makes a lot of sense – particularly in light of my review of Canon’s recent patent application for video-optimized EF lenses that feature an aperture ring.

One month from today, we’ll know for sure.  In the mean time, stay tuned for the latest.  And if you have any insight into what’s coming next feel free to drop a line via the contact form and let me know.
