AbelCine First Look: Canon's IBC 2016 Announcements

Canon announced today their new C700 Cinema Camera, the XC15 4K video/still camera, and two new 4K production monitors. Recently, I had the opportunity to talk to Canon's Jesse Mineo about these exciting additions to the Canon line, as well as the DP-V1710 and DP-V2420 HDR reference monitors.

The C700 is an evolution of Canon's C-series cameras, taking many of the features found in the C300 Mark II to the next level. It is a full featured, shoulder mountable, cinema camera with a 4.5K resolution sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. Coming in PL or locking EF mounts, the camera is designed for studio work, as well as EFP/ENG style production. It features a familiar side interface, optional remote operation control panel, 12v and 24v power outputs, and all the professional inputs and outputs that you would expect. An optional OLED electronic viewfinder is available for it with full 1920x1080 resolution, and this same viewfinder will be compatible with the C300 Mark II. The C700 records internally on CFast cards in XF-AVC and ProRes formats at resolutions up to 4K. Codex will also have an optional recorder for the C700, which will add full 4.5K recording at frame rates up to 120p. External RAW recording is also possible with the Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q+ or Atomos devices.

C700-LCanon has also announced two new production and reference monitors, both with 4K resolution, the DP-V1710 and DP-V2420. The V1710 is a 17" full HDR capable, full 4K monitor - the first of its kind for a monitor of this size. The DP-V2420 is an upgrade to the V2410, giving a much wider dynamic range, for an even better HDR experience, with 1000 NIT max output and a minimum luminance of 0.005 NITs. This is really amazing for an LCD screen, with black levels that are near that of an OLED. Both of these monitors are built for production, but also perfect for a post finishing suite.


Lastly the XC15 is a great update to the XC10 camera. The XC15 features a new XLR input module, which is also compatible with the C300 Mark II. It also has Canon Log II and new color modes designed to match the C300 Mark II and other C-series cameras. This makes it a perfect companion to those cameras. We are really excited about all of these new Canon products, watch the video above to learn more, and look for future events featuring them at our AbelCine locations.

Recently, AbelCine organized a focus group with select cinematographers and specialists from Canon to review the new Dual Pixel Auto Focus (DAF) upgrade for the C300 camera. The consensus was that for $500, this is a feature worth many times its cost, as it expands the universe of the types of shots that can be achieved.
