Canon has confirmed it is working on a new full-frame EOS DSLR that will incorporate improved video capability.

?The new camera will be ideally suited for cinematographic and other high-resolution production applications,? said Canon in a statement.

Equipped with a full-frame (35mm) sensor, the as-yet-unnamed camera will boast ?4K video? (using an APS-H equivalent frame size), according to Canon which has yet to release further details.

Canon last night entered the professional cinematography market with the unveiling of the Cinema EOS System, giving filmmakers access to Canon SLR lenses.

Canon has confirmed that it houses an 8.29-million-pixel CMOS sensor.

Canon has also unwrapped seven 4K EF Cinema lenses.
