Canon announced today their new flagship cinema camera: the EOS C700. This shoulder-mounted cinema camera features a Super 35mm 4.5K sensor and 15 stops of dynamic range with rolling shutter. There is also a global shutter option for the C700 with 14 stops of dynamic range (global shutter available for PL Mount only). Canon’s famous Dual Pixel AF is present in the C700, along with built-in ND Filters.
The Canon EOS C700 is capable of internal 10-bit 4K recording up to 59.94 in XF-AVC. For the first time in a Canon camera ProRes is a recording option, giving users 10-bit 422HQ in 4K at 30fps and ProRes 4444 at 12-bit in 2K. The C700 internally records to CFast 2.0 Cards, and an SD card slot for recording XF-AVC proxies, photos (JPEG), custom pictures, metadata, menus and more. There is also an optional Codex CDX-36150 external recorder that attaches to the back of the C700 via the V-Mount plate. Recording to the CDX-36150 enables 4.5K RAW up to 100fps and 4K RAW up to 120fps. Users can also record 4K ProRes at 60fps and 2K/HD ProRes up to 120fps in 10-bit, along with 12-bit ProRes 444 XQ at 60fps.
