Canon’s concept camera be the long-awaited EOS 5D Mark III?

Olivier Laurent writes in The BJP that Canon have plans for a DSLR type camera aimed at the cinema stream of photography, I suppose that means video. Interesting developments, Olivier descibes the ideas and where Canon might be going in this article

“When Canon announced that it was developing a new concept digital SLR with 4K video recording capabilities, photographers wondered whether the new model would be the long-awaited EOS 5D Mark III.

And while the new concept camera has so far remained unnamed, Mike Owen, Canon’s European professional communication manager, in an interview with BJP’s news and online editor Olivier Laurent at the Cinema EOS launch event in Berlin, confirmed that the camera [pictured above] will not be part of the firm’s EOS range of still cameras.

“The Cinema EOS system is a system,” he tells BJP. “It will have multiple products as the EOS product line has, and the thing that will tie all of this together will be the lens mount, because we feel that our lenses are one of our key assets. But when it comes to the concept camera, that will be part of the Cinema system, and the still EOS range will continue to develop as it has been over the past few years.”
