At the Bench: A Look at the Canon C700 and DP-V2420 Monitor

Canon recently announced the new C700 camera, as well as the DP-V2420 4K reference display. We had our hands on an early prototype of the camera back in September, but the camera wasn't production ready just yet.

Now Canon has the camera ready to roll, and we had some more time with it for testing. The C700 is a fully featured cinema camera, with all the features of the C300 Mark II and beyond. Some of the most exciting feature include a 4.5K sensor with 14+ stops of dynamic range, raw output and Codex integration, a simplified cinema-style interface, ProRes and XF-AVC internal recording, plus a shoulder mounted design perfect for both cinema and run & gun work. Watch the video above to learn more about the C700. I give a tour of both the camera and the great new interface.

Canon also let us check out their DP-V2420, which is an impressive 4K HDR reference display. It features an LCD panel with 1000 nit max white output, and an incredible .005 nit black output. This is something I've never seen before in an LCD panel. It also supports DCI-P3 and REC2020 color gamuts. Watch the video below to learn more about the monitor, and how it works well both on set with Canon cameras (and others) and is also perfect for HDR finishing work.
