OMG! Canon Create The Ultimate 'Multi-purpose' Concept Camera

This is a full working model albiet in concept form but I so want Canon to make it for real. The 4K as it is currently known shoots at 60 frames per second at 4k resolution using a single 8 megapixel 2/30inch CMOS sensor and it weighs in at only 5.5 pounds. Let's just go over that sentence, 4K resolution video is approximately quadruple the resolution of 1080p - wow.


The hardware is essentially a huge DSLR body packing a fixed video-style lens complete with zoom and focus controls and a high-def flip-out LCD viewfinder, the same LCD found in Canon's new XF-300 and XF-305 video cameras.



Multi-Purpose Image Capture


Unlike competing camera-maker RED's offerings, apparently the 4K concept is not specifically designed for digital cinema. It's actually intended to offer "multipurpose image capture" . Despite Canon admitting that the 4K will never come to market we can't help but admire Canon's brave step from the norm, wouldn't you want one?
