The 4K DSLR Monster Canon EOS-1D C Gets a Huge Price Drop!
Well, it didnâ€™t take long for that to happen â€“ the Canon EOS-1D C 4K DSLR is getting a massive $3K discount for a very limited time. After the C100 Mark II, and the C300 II got some very decent (permanent) discounts, now you can pick up the EOS-1D C for US$4999 until the end of July, which is in three days. Yes, it may have been around for a few years, but it was the 1st Canon DSLR to ever get 4K video, and itâ€™s sure still capable of producing some lovely images â€“ and add to that Canon LOG (that is missing from the newer 1DX Mark II which is US$5,999) combined it with a full-frame chip and more affordable Compact Flash cards for media, and you get some smoking good 4K DCI in a 4:2:2 codec.
It is a sure tell sign that Canon are making way for their new 4K cameras to be announced in the next 6 weeks â€“ which include the 2 mystery 4K cameras at IBC and the 5D Mark IV of course. So with this juicy price drop, the EOS-1D C falls nicely below the newer 1DX mark II. Now some of you may be thinking â€“ hey wait a minute â€“ arenâ€™t we supposed to get a 5D Mark IV announcement pretty soon? I mean after all, 2016 is a Photokina year, which is just around the corner in less than 60 days. Plus we already have the 1D X Mark II, which does 4K and is a newer camera with a few more tricks up its sleeve (4K/60p, 1080p 120fps and all that jazz).
