The 4K DSLR Monster Canon EOS-1D C Gets a Huge Price Drop!

Well, it didn’t take long for that to happen ““ 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 it’s sure still capable of producing some lovely images ““ 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 ““ 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 ““ hey wait a minute ““ aren’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).
