Canon Developing 8K Cinema EOS Camera

Canon has announced developments in the 8K imaging arena. Through the further enhancement of the Cinema EOS System 8K camera and professional-use 8K reference display under development, Canon aims to contribute to smooth production workflows, facilitating not only the input and output of 8K video content, but also such processes as 8K to 4K down-conversion and 4K cropping.

The Canon Cinema EOS System 8K camera being developed will be equipped with a super 35 mm-equivalent CMOS sensor that makes possible high-resolution 8,192 x 4,320 pixel imaging performance even at a frame rate of 60 fps with 13 stops of dynamic range and a wide colour gamut. The body has a similar footprint to the current Cinema EOS cameras and will feature the EF mount enabling the use of Canon’s EF lens lineup.

Reference Display

The ultra-high-resolution 8K reference display currently under development will achieve high brightness, high contrast (high dynamic range) and a wide colour gamut. Additionally, with a pixel density exceeding 300 ppi the display will make possible ultra-realistic imaging that enables the reproduction of subtle changes in light. Furthermore, when used in combination with the Cinema EOS System 8K camera, the display will be capable of conveying truly impressive levels of visual expression.
