(Edited: CW1, fake) Canon EOS C700x Image and Specification Leaked (coming with global shutter and 4k?)

700x

Hard to say if this is a reliable rumor, or not. Image and specs of an unseen Canon EOS C700x leaked over the web. There is more. According to the rumours, Canon may planing the introduction of global shutter and 4K video in the EOS Cinema lineup. It would also mean Canon is going to introduce a new model in their Cinema line-up. I prefer to rate this rumor CW3 for the time being.

The supposed specs are:

  • Effective Pixels: 4096 x 2160 Pixels; Approx: 8.85-megapixel
  • Sensor Type: CMOS; Global Shutter
  • Sensor Size 34.2 x 18.0; Cell Pitch: 8.2µm
  • Compression: 10-bit MPEG-2 Long GOP
  • Color Space: 4:4:4
  • Imaging Processor: DIGIC DV IIIa
  • GPS Location Sensor
  • MEMS Orientation Sensor
  • Extended Metadata Stream:*
  • All Frames Recorded with Following Data
  • GPS: Lat; Long; (degrees decimal) Elevation (meters)
  • Compass/Heading: (magnetic and degrees from true north)
  • MEMS Orientation: Roll; Yaw; Pitch (degrees decimal)
  • Date
  • Clock Time (HH:MM:SS.MILLISECONDS)
  • Elapsed Time (HH:MM:SS.MILLISECONDS)
  • SMPTE Timecode
  • Scene-Based and Continuous-Run Frame Numbers (set from menu or app)
  • Shot Number/Scene Number/Text Description (set from menu or app)
  • Focus/Zoom/Iris/ISO

About our rumor rating:

  • CW1 – probably fake rumor, not reliable
  • CW2 – rumor from an unknown/new source, but otherwise at least a plausible rumor
  • CW3 – a 50% chance to be real, coming from a known source, or from new source with good insight in Canon’s business
  • CW4 – rumor from a known source that was right in the past
  • CW5 – as good as certain to be true

Humor: Watch HSN Selling a Canon Rebel T3i, and Have a Good Laugh

The Phoblographer spotted this cute little video. Watch HSN selling a Canon Rebel T3i/EOS 600D on TV back in 2012. This must be the camera all Canon fans missed, since it is Canon’s “flagship camera”, ready for “professional use”. There are more comical highlights. Watch the video and have a good laugh.

Btw, the Rebel T3i isn’t bad at all. It’s among Flickr’s most popular DSLRs and still holds up well.
