Apple Used An Unreleased Canon 8K Cinema Camera During WWDC 2019

Something Canon related happened yesterday at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2019, and it appears to be a Canon 8K Cinema camera.

YouTuber Jonathan Morrison live streamed from WWDC 2019 and at a certain point (around min 10:55 in the video below) he talks to an Apple rep who says “there is an unreleased 8K Canon camera over there”.

The unreleased 8K Canon camera was used to capture 8K resolution footage to showcase the performance of the new Pro Display XDR. In the video you can see the Canon 8K mounted on a robotic arm while sending 4:4:4 ProRes 8K raw video via an Atoms Shogun to the Apple display.

The Canon 8K camera in the video is most likely the upcoming Canon EOS C300 Mark III, expected to be announced in 2019.
