European Broadcast Approval – Canon 1DC

The EBU (European Broadcast Union) found that the Canon 1D-C offered “exceptional HD resolution from a full 4K source with very low aliasing, and good colour performance and motion portrayal.”  This means that Canon’s 12,000€ Cinema DSLR can offer high definition broadcast quality and can be used as an a camera on any european television production.

(I had no idea that shooters actually needed to have their cameras approved for use).

This is largely due to the fact that the 1D-C is 4K primarily giving it plenty of  room in post to output to 1080p.  And it will also future proof productions once the 4K broadcast spec is adopted by the EU.
