Canon EOS 1D C Mark II to Come in 2017 with 8K Video Capability
Canon brought the EOS 1D X Mark II early in 2016 and it offered many improvements over its predecessor viz. 4k recording. But videographers are still waiting for a 8K capable Mark II version of the Canon EOS 1D C. We have learnt that a Canon EOS 1D C Mark II is in development with 8K capability and might be launched sometime in 2017.
The Canon EOS 1D C was always meant primarily for videographers when it was launched in 2013 – almost a year after the EOS 1D X was launched. Launch price of the camera was $15,000, which dropped to $12,000 shortly after. But now the camera is selling for $5000 which indicates the discontinuation of the product as the company is trying to clear the existing stock.

This is exactly why strong rumors are doing rounds that Canon EOS 1D C Mark II will soon be launched to replace the EOS 1D C. There is a strong possibility that it could be announced during the NAB show in April since the event primarily is meant for videographers.
