Canon is rumored to reveal two new Cinema EOS cameras at the National Association of Broadcasters Show 2014 which takes place in Las Vegas in early April.
The bigger part of Canon fans are expecting to hear news about the alleged high megapixel DSLR and EOS 7D Mark II cameras. Unfortunately, the rumor mill’s attention is directed towards another part of the industry.
The National Association of Broadcasters Show 2014 is approaching quickly and all eyes are on the videography category.
Canon has a series of cameras aimed at consumers who like to record professional-grade videos. The Cinema EOS line-up takes care of all your video-related needs and, since the NAB Show 2014 is coming, the company is preparing to launch new gear.
Canon rumored to announce a couple of Cinema EOS cameras at NAB Show 2014
The Japan-based company has not been very active at last year’s edition. However, things will change this year as “two cool cameras” will become official early next month.
The two new Canon Cinema EOS cameras could replace two existing models
The current Cinema EOS series consists of four cameras: C100, C300, C500, and 1D C. The latter is actually a DSLR with a full frame 35mm sensor, while the others are regular camcorders.
Since no further details have been mentioned, speculation is starting to go wild. Nevertheless, most fans agree that Canon will replace two existing shooters, one of them being the EOS C300 because it is the oldest of the group.
Canon EOS C300 has been announced in November 2011 with an 8.3-megapixel Super 35mm sensor, 2K video recording capability, and a price of around $16,000. Amazon is selling the C300 for a price under $15,000 at the moment.
NAB Show 2014 press conferences to begin on April 5
The Canon EOS C300 has been followed by the Canon EOS 1D C in April 2012. However, the world’s first DSLR capable of recording videos at 4K resolution has been released only in March 2013.
The 18.1-megapixel camera is currently available with an important discount as it costs about $11,500, down from the $15,000-$16,000 launch price. Such important reductions are usually a sign that a replacement is inbound, although it would be wrong to jump to conclusions.
The NAB Show 2014 begins on April 5 with the press conferences, while visitors will see the doors opening as of April 7, so stay tuned to catch all the news from this important event, courtesy of Camyx!
