We wouldn’t expect the Canon EOS-1D C 4K camera to be one of the most sold considering its high price, just under $12,000, but this DSLR would be perfect for the professional photographers that like to shoot movies while in motion. This is shown in the first video sample below, which features the Canon EOS-1D recording while a 4×4 is being driven down a hill and under a number of other situations.
It is pretty obvious why the start of the video is a little shaky, although our readers should remember this is a test to see how well the Canon EOS-1D C shoots under these conditions. There are massive improvements with this 4K camera as seen in the video sample, but every digital camera has a limit and this explains the shaking at the start. Would you be happy with this performance after spending $12,000?
The second video sample presents “Micro Expressions” and demonstrates further motion image photography, which is a great presentation that touches on a number of benefits shooting 4K video and creating stills from that video. This video features a few interviews with industry leaders, and they discus the benefits of Canon’s EOS-1D C for professionals.
You can see the movie recording size related figures in the table below, which is followed with another table that features required storage card performance and answers a few questions some of you might have about what cards to use when recording 4K video.
