|Canon EOS-1D C 4K DSLR camera|
When the Canon EOS-1D C camera was announced back in April, 2012 and made available for sale in March 2013, the list price was $15,000. Now you can buy a new one for $3,899.
Nowadays, every camera manufacturer offers cameras with 4K video. Some are selling for just a few hundred dollars. Of course, not all cameras with 4K video or high Megapixels are created equal. To causal observers, they may not know the difference and wonder why one should pay thousands of dollars for a camera like the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II when a Point-n-Shoot model has more megapixels and cost a fraction of the price.
Canon announced their 8K camera development during the Canon EXPO in September 2015. This is their next big product announcement to differentiate itself from the competition. The EOS-1D C Mark II or something equivalent may be the camera to take up that mantle.
The upcoming movie, Guardian of the Galaxy, Volume 2 was shot with 8K cameras. Canon is bent on being the first company to offer state-of-the-art equipment to filmmakers and videographers to enter this new universe.
