Canon EOS-1D C Firmware Update Delivers 25fps At 4K (But Is Not Available For Download)

EOS-1D C Firmware Update

 

The EOS-1D C is sold for $11,999 at the following shops: B&H and Adorama, and you can rent it here.

Canon Europe announced a new firmware (ver. 1.2.0) for the Canon EOS-1D C. The firmware will not be made available via download but will be installed by authorized service centers (click here to learn more).

Firmware version 1.2.0 incorporates the following improvements and fixes:

  1. Provides support for 25.00p (fps) video recording frame rate (PAL settings) at the camera’s maximum 4K resolution.
  2. A function to disable the image size selection button has been added.
  3. Fixes a phenomenon in which a difference in exposure appears on every other shot when shooting continuously and the auto-lighting optimizer is turned on (on weak, standard or strong).
  4. Fixes a phenomenon in which video recorded onto an external recorder sometimes becomes two-layered if it has been recorded through HDMI output.
  5. The video frame rate now displays two additional decimal places, e.g. 24p -> 23.98p (fps).
  6. Fixes a phenomenon in which the on-screen guidance cannot be fully displayed when setting the maximum limit value for the “Auto ISO Range” option.
  7. Corrects errors in the Portuguese language menu.

Canon Patent: Two Superzooms For APS-C And Full-Frame Cameras (next kit lenses?)

Canon Patent

Egami (translated) spotted another Canon patent. Two superzoom lenses, one for APS-C cameras (18-200mm f/3.5-5.6), the other for full-frame (28-200mm f/3.5-5.6). Given all the patents I published in the last months, it appears that Canon is intensively working n new technology. Both lenses are image stabilized and both are most probably future kit lenses.

  • Patent Publication No. 2013-97184
    • Publication date 2013.5.20
    • Filing date 2011.11.1
  • Example 1
    • Zoom ratio 10.39
    • Focal length f = 18.60-60.40-193.27mm
    • Fno. 3.48-4.98-5.88
    • Half angle ω = 36.27-12.74-4.04 °
    • Image height 13.65mm
    • 144.58-176.50-208.42mm overall length of the lens
    • BF 38.09-63.96-77.06mm
    • 16 pieces of 13-group lens configuration
    • Four four-sided aspherical
    • The effective diameter of the front lens 55.82mm
    • MOD 0.5m
  • Example 3
    • Zoom ratio 6.69
    • Focal length f = 28.90-76.87-193.28mm
    • Fno. 3.60-5.27-5.88
    • Half angle ω = 36.82-15.72-6.39 °
    • Image height 21.64mm
    • 144.56-176.58-208.59mm overall length of the lens
    • BF 38.00-66.95-76.98mm
    • 15 pieces of 11-group lens configuration
    • Four four-sided aspherical
    • The effective diameter of the front lens 62.81mm
    • MOD 0.5m
  • Canon patent
    • 5-group zoom positive and negative negative positive positive
    • Inner Focus (third group)
      • Because it is possible to reduce the beam effective diameter of the first group, can be miniaturized optical system
    • Image stabilization
