Fulldome video shooting with new DSLR Camera under development

Canon Inc. announced that the company is developing a new-concept EOS-series digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. Incorporating an enhanced version of the video-capture capability offered in the current EOS-series lineup, the new camera will be a big step for fulldome and other digital high-resolution production applications.

The model will be equipped with a 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor enabling 4K video recording at a frame rate of 24P, with Motion-JPEG compression. Expected resolution is 4096 x 2160 pixels which - corresponding to a fisheye circle of 2160 pixels - is twice the size currently reached by DSLR cameras.

Further details regarding the new EOS digital SLR camera currently under development, including the product name, specifications and scheduled launch date, have yet to be decided.
