The Canon 4K Cinema Cameras will not only support 4K video but also outputs this as a 10-bit uncompressed RAW data stream with no de-Bayering. The Canon 4K Cameras offer the additional versatility of being able to output quad full-HD (3840x2160), 2K (2048x1080), full HD (1920x1080), and other imaging options. All of these digital image source formats fully conform to established SMPTE production standards. All 4K video formats can be selected to operate from one to 60fps.
