I’ve been totalling up how much money I’ve spent on Canon gear since starting EOSHD.
Canon today issued an unusual development announcement for two upcoming cameras.
The first is a Cinema EOS C500 successor with 8K recording. The second is a 5DS style full frame DSLR featuring 120 megapixel resolution.
In this illuminating interview with Canon’s Masaya Maeda by Neil Matsumoto, stuff happens.
Looking at the Oscar nominations recently at EOSHD, with not a Red camera in sight, it’s clear Arri are a run-away success in the filmmaking industry. Now Arri are gunning for the Canon C300 and C500 with a camera which could seriously erode the market for Cinema EOS cameras at the high end of the broadcast and single-operator videographer market. The Amira’s pricing starts at 25,980 euros which puts it in the Sony F55 and Canon C500 range.
What’s the secret to Arri’s success?
SetLife Magazine (a recommended follow on Facebook) has compiled technical specification slates showing us who shot on what when it comes to the big 2014 Oscar nominees.
Interestingly Arri cameras still sweep the board. There are also nods to the Cinema EOS cameras and even the GoPro, but the really surprising thing is not a single one of the films were shot on RED.
