Remember, just last year this company dived headfirst into making their FIRST camera ever: an affordable cinema camera that could shoot RAW and have high dynamic range images.

It has been widely reported (and we think incorrectly so) that the Canon EOS-1D X and the Canon EOS 1D C are physically the same camera and only separated by a difference in firmware – implying that Canon is charging about $7000 for the additional 4k in the firmware. We haven’t reported it as we [...]
