Canon EOS-1D C vs Nikon D5 4K Video Comparison

Canon EOS-1D C 4K video and still camera

Nikon announced their long awaited D5 and D500 cameras last week. They both shoot 4K videos but are they any good in producing super high quality videos?

Canon announced the EOS-1D C camera back in 2012. It is a dedicated 4K video camera packed into a EOS-1D body. It is designed for videographers who want a professional body that can also shoot still photos. EOSHD did a review comparing the EOS-1D C and Nikon D5 4K video performance and concluded the Canon is the superior camera for shooting cinematic videos.

In addition, the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II camera will be announced some time in Q1, 2016. You can see the comparison of the two top-of-the-line DSLR cameras from Nikon and Canon by clicking on the link above.

Could never understand why 4K video belongs on a top-of-the-line DSLR camera anyway. Would a 50MP still photo capability belong on the Canon C300 Mark II camcorder? Now every camera manufacturer feels pressured by these point-n-shoot jobs all claiming to shoot at 4K. Blame Sony. Monkey see, Monkey do. Pity.

Sadly, it seems de rigueur now for almost every new camera to come with 4K video, however rudimentary, just so they can boast on the marketing brochure and web page about this feature.
