EOS-1D C meets EBU HD Tier 1 imaging requirements

The EOS-1D C digital SLR camera, part of Canon’s Cinema EOS System lineup of digital cinematography products, has been independently tested in accordance with European Broadcasting Union (EBU) standards for HD content acquisition. The tests found that the EOS-1D C is the first digital SLR camera to satisfy the stringent testing criteria for HD production.

Results indicated that the EOS-1D C provides exceptional HD resolution from a 4K source with very low aliasing, and good colour performance and motion portrayal. The test results also confirmed that the EOS-1D C camera system and its imaging performance comply with the recommended specification for inclusion in HD Tier 1 for HD production.

A new free-of-charge firmware update for the EOS-1D C enables the camera to correct for insufficient peripheral illumination when outfitted with supporting EF Cinema Lenses and make possible audio line input.
