The Canon EOS C70 Cinema Camera brings Cinema features to a mirrorless-style body. It features a Super35 Dual Gain Output sensor with up to 16+ stops of dynamic range. The DGO system combines two separate gain readings for each photodiode on the sensor. Emphasising saturation in bright areas of your image and lowering noise in darker areas.
Pro video functions include unlimited video recording, a motorised ND filter wheel. In addition, a BNC timecode input/output connector, and built-in dual mini-XLR audio inputs. The EOS C70 is also the first Cinema EOS camera with an RF mount. This enables you to use Canon’s line of RF lenses, or adapters to EF and PL mount.
Further pro video features include Dual Pixel CMOS AF autofocus. And up to 4K 120p or Super 16 2K crop 180 fps video capture. This lightweight cine camera also incorporates a 3.5″ LCD panel. This provides quick, easy setting changes. Also both auto-ISO and auto-gain functions for on-the-go adjustments to changing light levels.
The EOS C70 Cinema Camera fits into your C300 Mk III workflow as a B camera. Or as an upgrade for C200 or C100 users. Power the EOS C70 using a BPA-60 or BPA-30 battery or the included AC power adapter.
Additional C70 Features
The C70 is also compatible with the Canon EF-EOS R 0.71X speed booster adapter. This adapter converts your full-frame lenses to Super35 format while increasing aperture speed by around one stop. The EF adapter passes all the EF lens data through the RF mount. This enables full Dual-Pixel Auto Focus and metadata information for select lenses. The EOS C70 is also the first Canon EOS cinema camera to feature the EOS iTR AF X autofocus function. This uses a head-tracking algorithm for improved distance measuring and tracking reliability.
Canon’s C70 camera records up to DCI 4K resolution video to dual SD cards. High frame rates recorded in 4K up to 120 fps. Also up to 180 fps in a 2K cropped Super16 mode. Codec options include Canon’s XF-AVC, XF-AVC Intra, and XF-AVC Long GOP. This provides up to 10-bit, 4:2:2 DCI 4K images with reduced storage requirements. The EOS C70 supports both proxy recording rates and simultaneous recording in different formats. These include 4K/HD and XF-AVC/MP4 options. The EOS C70 can also capture still images to SD cart slot B in select video modes.
