Canon new DSLR EOS-1D C is here with a 4K video shooting capability. So, is it a great news? Yes and No.

4K video on DSLR was quiet expected, but it came quiet early than expected. The specs of the camera is almost same as Canon 1D X (yet to be released). If we take in consideration to some leaked 4K footage shot on this camera, you won’t buy it. It’s 4K quality isn’t good enough for most makers. Also not to forget, though 4K on a DSLR seems to be targeted towards indie makers, it’s price point is not. It is priced 12,000.00 USD for body only.

Have to say, Canon has listened to the Indie filmmakers and jumped ahead of Nikon again but with a very bad price point.
