An Introduction to the Canon EOS C700 Cinema Camera

canon-c700-broadcast

The Canon EOS C700 was announced last month and raised a lot of interest, but also criticism among our readers. The new flagship model for Canon’s Cinema line was on display at IBC 2016 and we took the chance to take a closer look at the new camera.

A Closer Look at the Canon C700

With the C700, Canon moved on to a different form factor for the first time in quite a while. The Canon EOS C700 is reminiscent of competitor cameras such as the Panasonic Varicam, Arri Amira or the Sony F55/F5, and its features and pricing clearly target it at the higher end of filmmaking.

Like with their C300 and C500 line, there will be separate EF and PL versions of the camera. Both are already available for pre-order at retailers:

US:
EF Version
PL Version
Global Shutter Version

EU:
EF Version
PL Version
Global Shutter Version

The Canon EOS C700 camera offers internal 4K recording to CFast 2.0 cards at up to 59.94p in XF-AVC (10-bit 4K) and also in ProRes (even in 4K 10-bit 422HQ, or 2K in ProRes 4444 at 12 bit).

Sampling from a 4.5K sensor and using the optional, specifically-developed Codex CDX-36150 recorder, the Canon EOS C700 provides 120fps 4K RAW recording, which is probably its most mind-blowing feature. 4.5K RAW recording at up to 100fps is said to be coming at a later stage via a firmware upgrade.
