Canon Announces New Camera. Shocks World With Arrogance And Greed.

Canon announced their new, 4K DSLR camera, the new EOS-1D-C. I won't go fully into why I now hate Canon, I've said so much already, but here's the gist of it.

This camera doesn't need to exist. It exists because Canon want to artificially differentiate their camera line-up, thus creating this new series of "pro" videographer cameras. All of the hardware in this camera could exist in the extant EOS-1DX for only a bit more money. Canon is charging an arm and a leg for it because they think that they can.

They left the 5D Mark III to rot, even though tons of pro -ya know, the people for whom Canon is supposedly making this system- videographers loved its predecessor. Canon is trying to purposely kill the DSLR video revolution because they can't milk as much money from it as they'd like.

Fuck you, Canon. I hope that Panasonic, Sony, and Nikon eat your lunch.
