Canon’s EOS-1D C is an absolute beast of a digital SLR, capable of recording 4K footage. Said footage has leaked out, and you can take a look for yourself right now. And it’s stunning.

4K has a resolution of around 4,000 pixels horizontally, which is around double that of HD. So click through if you’re curious how that’ll look.

The Canon EOS-1D C isn’t out yet, which means that the footage is from an early prototype. The clip shows a quick tour around what looks like a mudbank, so the scenery isn’t too exciting, but it is amazingly detailed. If you’re thinking of upgrading to a (ridiculously expensive) pro-grade camera, you should check it out.

The footage has been scaled down to 1,920×1080 to be viewable on Vimeo, but you can snaffle a short clip of raw 4k footage from the link here., who got their hands on the footage, claim it’s “not near what true 4K should look like,” but it is a massive step up from what other DSLRs are capable of.

It is from a prototype camera as well, so the quality will no doubt improve for the models that go on sale:

The Canon EOS-1D C is expected to cost around $12-15,000 (£7,600-9,600) when it goes on sale, so it’s one for the pros only. Would you like to get your hands on one? Let us know.
