If you’ve been speculating just what kind of eye candy Canon’s EOS-1D C is capable of, you might be in luck. The team over at EOSHD have obviously snagged some 4K sample video footage from an early prototype of the unreleased, professional-grade DSLR. The clip looks slick to us, albeit lacking in the scenery division. Nevertheless, EOSHD comments that while a “large step up for image quality compared to all previous DSLRs” the video recording footage isn’t really as sharp as stills from the 1D X (the 1D C’s less-endowed sibling) and “not near exactly what real 4K must look like.” (Of course, anybody searching for real 4K is advised to step up to Sony’s $ 70k F65 CineAlta, so we guess you get exactly what you pay for). You can check into the minute-long clip, however scaled to a Vimeo-friendly 1,920 x 1,080, after the break. If your discerning eye requires the raw footage, however, why not grab the few seconds accessible at the source link and let us know your thoughts? That’s what the opinions are for, after all.
