Canon at the Movies

Canon looks poised to announce something new for film makers in London next week according to canonrumors. Wouldn’t it be great if Canon’s video camera people have put together something new based on their success with DSLR sensors! After all the XH-A1 and H1 have been around a long time now.

    It’s interesting that the supermeet happening in the US today also has an item on the agenda described as follows…

    “Major Announcement on New Canon File-Based Codec and Upcoming File-Based Professional Camera”

    Something’s definitely cooking at Canon

    I’ve been saying this since I saw some of the first footage from the 5DmkII. Put that chip in an H1 or an A1 body, give it an EOS lens mount, and say goodnight.

    Plus with Canon announcing a new 50mpbs video codec, this could be a huge moment.

    Although the flyer does say “consumer” in it… I’ll dial back the hype machine.

      Good point Bo, maybe not this time then, although I do like the sound of that H1 / 5D mashup!
