More on the Canon announcement...maybe

Either things are firming up in the rumor department, or the same rumor is coming around again, but a week or so ago CanonRumors reported that Canon was working on two large-sensor video cameras; one with an EF mount, and the other a PL mount. Now Wide Open Camera is reporting the same thing, with almost identical details (mounts, pricing of around $15,000) though it also adds the possibility of 4K resolution, which, if true, could be very, very interesting. A 4K, PL mount camera that costs $15,000 would definitely give Sony problems, and may hurt ARRI and even RED.

And Canon has already shown a prototype 4K camera last year at the New York Canon Expo, so it's not like that's completely out of left field. It looks like it's going to be another interesting few months...
