Introducing Canon’s New Cinema EOS C700 Camera

With intensive research, user feedback and time investment, Canon have created a masterpiece - the next generation EOS C700 Cinema Camera. It is designed to be a flexible “A” camera for various types of shooting scenarios. With all its upgraded and brand new features, it is invariably the camera – one that cinematographers, production houses, rental companies, and producers has ever wanted.

The Canon’s flagship cinema camera - EOS C700, boasts of numerous spectacular features. To shortlist some:

• It offers the option of two different sensor designs. The Cinema EOS C700 offers a 4.5K CMOS sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. The standard sensor will be offered in both PL and EF mounts. The EF mount version of the camera features Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology.
• With an optional Codex CDX-36150 attached, the Cinema EOS C700 can record uncompressed 10-bit or 12-bit 4K RAW up to 120 fps, 2K RAW up to 240 fps, or ProRes 4K up to 60 fps.The Codex CDX-36150 is made specifically for the Cinema EOS C700 and attaches to the rear of the camera and is controlled directly through the camera’s menu system.
• The Cinema EOS C700 has two modes of internal recording: Canon XF-AVC and Apple ProRes. Both record to internal CFast Media. XF-AVC records up to 59.94p in 4K onto the CFast media. The camera also records Apple ProRes to CFast media. This is the first time a Canon Cinema EOS camera records ProRes internally.
• The Cinema EOS C700 has a separate 0.7-inch OLED Electronic Viewfinder (EVF-V70). Canon’s first professional grade viewfinder features Full HD 1920x1080 viewing, surround view, view assist and false color. The EVF also has the ability to display an HDR simulated picture with a “stretched” dynamic range for increased shadow detail and highlight retention.
• Anamorphic Lens Support – first of its kind: The Cinema EOS C700 supports anamorphic format lenses by electronically desqueezing the image in the viewfinder and on connected monitors for viewing. On the sensor, users can take advantage of the camera’s full 4K resolution by using 1.3x squeeze anamorphic lenses that cover the full 16x9 area of the Cinema EOS C700 sensor. Popular 2x squeeze anamorphic lenses that cover a native 1.2:1 aspect ratio on the sensor can be used as well using a cropped area of the sensor.

Designs reformed

The Cinema EOS C700 features a new design when compared to previous Cinema EOS products. The Cinema EOS C700 is a full-size cinema camera allowing for both traditional studio style and handheld configurations.

Both sides of the camera can have redundant main displays with menus and controls. A built-in control panel on the camera operator side allows quick access to the camera controls. Canon’s optional new Remote Operation Unit OU-700 attaches to the camera’s right side and mimics all the functions of the built-in Main Display.

The camera body includes built-in cheese plates with numerous 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 threaded holes on the top and bottom to easily attach accessories. The top handle attaches in a variety of positions for assisting in achieving optimum balance.

The Cinema EOS C700 can be used with an optional accessory Shoulder Support Unit SU-15 with industry-standard rosettes on each side and 15mm rods in front. The unit has a comfortable shoulder pad that consists of two sections that can adjust to fit the width of a camera operator’s shoulder. Attaching the shoulder pad to the camera allows for easy handheld operation and still provides a quick release bottom to connect to a tripod.

With features making it suitable for every shooting requirements, this revolutionary cinema camera is everything you have ever wished for.
