Canon has developed a new sensor that supports 4K (DCI) recording with a maximum 4096 x 2160 resolution, producing footages with high image quality. Also, 2K/HD recording (Over Sampling HD processing) that utilizes the information yielded from the 4K sensor to the full more than satisfactorily supports multi-purpose production needs. When users have selected the Canon Log 2 gamma, the dynamic range changes from 200% to 1600% when ISO 100 to ISO 800 is selected, and a wide dynamic range of 1600% is achieved for ISO800 at the base sensitivity and higher. This enables the details of the highlights and shadows to be adjusted, and it extends the scope of color grading.
AF speed tuning has now been implemented. The focusing area has been expanded to approximately 80% (vertically) x 80% (horizontally) of the image display on the screen. The focusing area can also be moved using the 4-direction key for AF shooting using the framework of the user's choice. This truly innovative UI applies the phase difference AF technology of Dual Pixel CMOS AF to deliver information that includes even the pre-focus and post-focus states of the focusing position, greatly improves user friendliness and efficiency in operation. This removes some of the obstacles to focusing in 4K shooting which demands extreme focusing accuracy.
The new handle bracket has multiple threaded holes that are the same size as those on the accessories provided so that many different accessories can be mounted. This increases the degree of freedom in shooting as well as enhances user friendliness and rigging possibilities. A ND filter expansion mode of 8 and 10 stops, on top of the current 2, 4 and 6 stops is also supported. This enables the aperture to be opened even in bright outdoor environments to capture shots with a shallow depth of field.
