Canon announces EOS C70 camera
Cannon announced the launch of the EOS C70 camera, the newest addition to the Cinema EOS System. Utilizing Canon’s RF lens mount, the new camera achieves a compact and lightweight design and supports 4K/120P high frame rate recording, enabling rich visual expression.
Canon has also announced the launch of the mount adapter for EOS C70. The Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x (sold separately) will enable the camera to support an extensive lineup of EF lens series, opening a myriad of possibilities for creative cinematography. The EOS C70 is the first Cinema EOS System camera to be equipped with an RF mount, which makes it compatible with any of the RF lenses from Canon’s EOS R System.
The camera features, 4K Super 35mm CMOS DGO (Dual Gain Output) sensor, the EOS C70 can capture high-image-quality 4K video in 4:2:2 (10-bit) colours that delivers rich gradation, even in environments which demand high dynamic range.
Moreover, the camera is equipped with the DIGIC DV7 image-processing platform capable of high-speed processing, enabling users to record high-frame rate 4K/120P video to UHS-II standard SD cards. Employing a miniaturized optical system, the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x allows for video recording with an angle of view close to that of the mounted full-frame lens. This allows users to take full advantage of the wide selection of EF series lenses as well as expands the possibilities and flexibility of video production.
The optical system of the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x reduces focal length by 0.71x, thus allowing the EOS C70-equipped with a Super-35mm DGO sensor-to record video using EF lenses originally designed for full-frame sensors with an angle of view similar to the original angle of the full-frame lenses. In addition, reducing the size of the optical system gains approximately one extra stop (one lens aperture “f-number”) of brightness, thus requiring lower ISO sensitivity. This enables high-image-quality recording with less noise, even in low-light environments such as indoors or at night.
When equipped with EF lenses via the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x, the EOS C70 digital cinema camera can achieve the same Dual Pixel CMOS AF autofocus functionality across the entire image, just like digital cinema cameras with an EF mount. In addition, the camera can also record and display data such as peripheral illumination correction, effectiveness of lateral chromatic aberration correction, F-number and focal length.
Further, the camera provides excellent versatility that can handle a variety of recording scenarios and inherits many professional features found in the existing Cinema EOS lines, including two mini XLRs, audio control dials, Timecode IN/OUT, full HDMI terminal and the newly designed “Direct Touch Control” function that allows users to change recording settings quickly and directly from the camera’s touch screen panel.
The Canon Cinema EOS C70 and the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x sales will start in November 2020.
“At Canon, our focus has always been to provide our consumers with the latest technology that enhances their photography and videography experience. In the recent times, we have witnessed a significant increase in the creation and consumption of video-based content and the current scenario has further fuelled the same. Understanding the need for high-end innovative products and the industry’s ever-growing potential, we are extremely delighted to announce the launch of our EOS C70 camera for cinematographers and videographers, to have an ingenious filming experience. With this launch, we are certain that this product is aptly armed to cater to the evolving needs of the cinema & broadcasting professionals in the country with an absolutely new design and form factor,” said Kazutada Kobayashi, President & CEO, Canon India.
He further added, “We are also launching the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x, which is the lens adaptor for EOS C70 and the perfect companion to this camera as it decreases the focal length and further allows to record videos using EF lenses.
