After months of rumours, which have grown far stronger with the approach of the NAB show, Canon has announced a 4K Cinema EOS camera, the EOS C300 Mark II.

It joins the the DP-V2410, a 24-inch 4K reference display, and another new 4K model, the XC10, a compact video and digital stills camera for aspiring filmmakers.

The EOS C300 Mark II is, available from September 2015 with an RSP of £11,299 excluding VAT.

Canon said it would enable filmmakers and broadcasters to record 4K video with 15-stops of dynamic range at high bitrates to internal CFast 2.0 cards.

Created for aspiring filmmakers, or ideal for use as a B camera in professional productions, the XC10 is a compact digital camcorder which Canon said offers the versatility to capture both high bit rate 4K video and 12MP stills, in one single device.

It will be available from June 2015 with an RSP of £1599.99.

The new DP-V2410 has been engineered for use on-set or on-location in both broadcast and cinema productions, to provide accurate and reliable output of 4K content. 

Thanks to a new HDR Mode, the display makes it easy to see both extreme highlights and shadow detail simultaneously, providing a more natural and realistic image.   

The DP-V2410 is expected to be available in Europe in Q4 2015.
