We might only be a few days into 2021, but it looks like Canon is already gearing up to release a brand new camera – and not just any camera either. Canon Japan has released an interesting teaser video for an 8K Canon cinema camera, showcasing stunning footage (presumably from the upcoming cine camera) and interviews with industry professionals. 

While the video doesn't feature an English translation, it's still worth viewing to take a peek at the body of the new Canon cine camera. Take a look at the video below to see what you think.

According to Canon Rumors, Canon made a marketing presentation at Inter BEE 2020 Online a few days ago. This presentation apparently revolved specifically around what Canon is planning for its 8K cameras. 

"As a leading company in imaging technology, Canon is working to develop 8K solutions in anticipation of further advances in image expression. A compact, lightweight 8K camera that can be used in a variety of shooting styles. EF cinema lenses boast an extensive line-up of wide angle and telephoto lenses. 8K display with high brightness, high contrast and high color gamut. The blending of four real 4K projectors enables a large screen projection of real 8K images. From input to output, the Canon 8K solution provides an unparalleled viewing experience."

Canon Rumors reports that Canon displayed a modular 8K cinema camera and an 8K conversion box, which YMCinema posits is for 8K output, as the camera will apparently record 8K internally.
