First Look: Canon EOS C70 Digital Cinema Camera

Today Canon announced the C70, the latest model in their line of Cinema EOS digital cinema cameras. It uses the same Super35-format sensor as the C300 Mk III, including Canon’s DGO (Dual Gain Output) technology for 16+ stops of dynamic range, their legendary Dual-Pixel Autofocus, and is the first Cinema EOS camera to use Canon’s RF lens mount (which first debuted on the EOS R full-frame mirrorless stills-oriented body). All this is packed into the smallest Cinema EOS body ever – yet with few compromises in terms of the features and functionality Canon users have come to rely on over the years.

I’ve produced two videos with more information on the new camera. Up first is a “First Look” using a camera that was final production hardware but with pre-production firmware. In it I show off some of the most significant features that jumped out at me during the time I had the camera.

In the second video, I sit down (virtually) with Paul Hawxhurst, Senior Professional Market Specialist with Canon USA to go over some of the new features in more detail and hear about the design philosophy behind the new C70.

That’s all for now, but stay tuned for more content and information on the latest Cinema EOS camera from Canon, the C70. The Canon Cinema EOS C70 is expected to be available in November with a price point of $5,499 USD.
