Canon’s new EOS C700 FF PL top-end digital cinema camera features a full frame CMOS sensor designed to meet an extensive range of production needs. The camera’s full frame sensor provides higher resolution and produce footage with shallower depth of field than Canon cameras with Super 35 sized sensors, giving filmmakers a variety of creative options.
The EOS C700 FF PL is capable of ProRes and XF-AVC internal recording up to 4K to CFast cards. With the optional Codex CDX-36150 recorder, the EOS C700 FF PL is capable of recording 5.9K RAW up to 60 frames per second. When oversampling 5.9K in 4K/UHD recording, moiré is suppressed and noise graininess improved, resulting in higher quality video compared to native 4K image capture. The EOS C700 FF PL also has a wide array of 2K/UHD/HD recording options, including recording up to 168 fps in 2K RAW in Super 16mm (crop) mode.
Other key features of the EOS C700 FF PL camera system include an impressive dynamic range of 15 stops., Canon Log 2 and 3, Slow/Fast Motion Recording, IP Streaming and support for ACES, SMPTE ITU-R BT.2100 (HDR) and User LUTs.
The rugged magnesium body was built with rounded edges and semi-circular sides behind the lens mount that hint at the Canon Cinema design legacy. The EOS C700 FF can be equally comfortable handheld, shoulder-mounted, on a tripod head, steadicam, gimbal rig, jib, crane or car mount. An optional professional grade OLED HD electronic viewfinder (EVF-V70) offers additional versatility. The camera is also compatible with a variety of lens configurations including anamorphic and B4 (with the optional MO-4P adapter).
The EOS C700 FF is also available in EF mount, which features Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DAF) technology.
