Who is the Canon 1D C for?

Why would anyone want a Canon EOS 1D C? After all, who is the Canon 1D C for anyway? It would be great if we had the ability to shoot video full time and be able to get really good still images.

Now you can!

Individual frame capture from video has been desired ever since the Canon 5D Mark II burst onto the scene. The Mark II got everyone's attention for its 1080 video and quality still image capture.

You can grab small stills from 1080 video. You could publish on the web, but they're not good enough for large prints.

If you want quality printable stills from video you really need to start with 4k (4096 horizontal pixels)

Biggest Benefit of 4k Video DSLRs

Squeezing 4k video into a DLSR body lets you boldly go where no one has gone before. You'll be able to capture certain scenes and compose in ways that you can't when using a dedicated video camera.

A second bonus is that the EOS 1D C take all of your Canon EF Lenses.

The Ultimate "Hybrid" Canon Camera

Who is the Canon 1D C for?  You, if you want to be able to shoot eye-catching stills, dazzling video, AND grab still images from your video.

The big downside: you may have to sell your car to get one. The 4k-capable 1D C will cost you about 8k.

Shoot more photos.

Watch less TV.
