Canon also announced two different kits for the EOS C700: the EOS C700 MultiDyne 4K Kit and the EOS C700 MultiDyne HD kit. These kits expand the current C700 EF 19mm ARRI Pro Kit with either a 4K or 3G camera back and base station from MultiDyne. We’ll be posting more information on those kits as it becomes available.
Users of the Canon EOS C700 series cameras may have noticed an issue regarding a phenomenon that occurs during ProRes recording in which the final media clip cannot be played back. Note this issue only occurs while using ProRes as your main recording format and the output recording command is set to the “On” position.
If your recording media fills up (either a CFast card or Codex Capture Drive*1) and your recording stops, you may receive a series of messages. First the “Media Full” message, followed by the “Some clips require data recovery” message. After attempting to recover any data, a final message saying “Unable to recover data” may appear. If this happens, the last clip recorded may become corrupt and recovery is not possible. Again, this issue only occurs if your media source becomes full and your clip has not completely recorded.
Listed below are the cameras affected, along with the correct firmware updates:
EOS C700 / EOS C700 PL Digital Cinema Cameras equipped with Firmware Version 184.108.40.206.00 to 220.127.116.11.00
Firmware Version 18.104.22.168.00 (or later) resolves this phenomenon.
EOS C700 GS PL Digital Cinema Cameras equipped with Firmware Version 22.214.171.124.00
Firmware Version 126.96.36.199.00 (or later) resolves this phenomenon.

The new firmware update for the EOS C100 Mark II comprises a shutter angle priority mode which maintains the shutter angle when the frame rate is changed. The update also enables peripheral illumination correction data for the new EF-24 -105 f/4 L IS USM II lens.
The new firmware for the Canon ME20F-SH and ME200S-SH includes new auto exposure modes including Shutter Priority (Tv), Aperture Priority (Av) and Automatic Gain Control (AGC). Users will now also be able to select Auto or Manual ND filter operation. Cinema Servo Lens Support is upgraded on the ME20F-SH to cover the CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S, and the EF100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II USM, EF35mm F1.4L II USM and EF24-105mm F/4L IS II USM are now also supported by the ME20F-SH and ME200S-SH. A new setting has been added to CP Fine Tuning menu to assist with improved image quality when using Chroma key system. Finally, the ME20F-SH and ME200S-SH can now enjoy enhanced WB settings when the camera is set to Auto and a 25PsF option has been added to support monitor connection and viewing when shooting in 25P.
In the standing Cinema EOS tradition, Canon has released a new film to showcase its camera; check out its new C700 4K film, The Calling. Be sure to change the quality settings on the embedded video to 4K (2160p) to really see the Canon Cinema difference. The new camera’s low light capabilities really shine in the film.
“Chris Clarke was the DoP on the shoot and he was using the EOS C700, which was a pre-production version and I think the only one in the world at that time. In a project of this size I have to distance myself from the kit and concentrate on directing. It’s all about finding the right people for the job and Chris and I had worked on an RNLI project before and got on really well. Plus I liked his approach. If you have got an ambitious shot list, actors and a performance you don’t want to be bogged down with the technical. That’s really important and that’s why Chris was brought in.” – Clive Booth
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.
