Canon CN-E35mm lens for 4K

This is the new CN-E35mm lens which has been developed in response to strong demand from Cinema EOS users, and has a compact design that promises fast performance, which Canon believes makes it ideal for shooting in challenging low-light conditions. 

The CN-E35mm T1.5 L F prime lens takes Canon’s range of EF Cinema primes to a total of six lenses. 

The 35mm lens is designed for 4K production. So will go nicely with the Canon EOS-1D C with full frame coverage, and is colour matched to others in the range, as well as featuring the same form factor and uniform markings, making it easy to switch between lenses when on a shoot. 

It is expected to be available from December.

Canon's 4K - EOS-1D C now EBU Tier 1 approved

Canon’s 4K DSLR camera, the EOS-1D C, has become the first DSLR to meet the EBU Tech 3335 requirements that show it can deliver an image of high enough quality for top-end broadcast production. If you are interested in the tests the camera had to pass here's the link to the EBU doc.

The camera is based on the EOS-1D X, but is designed for video-supporting in-camera 4K (4,096x2,160) recording with 4:2:2 colour sampling.

IBC 2013

Yes, It's September - it must be IBC.

Hopefully there will be some new and interesting bits of kit at the exhibition.

But, there are still a lot of boxes to unpack on the Canon stand.

Plus, you have to remember which bit goes where...
