Canon Announces Cinema EOS C70 Body

Canon has announced the EOS C70 cinema camera, the first Canon RF mount cinema camera for video work:


From DPReview





Canon has announced the EOS C70, a digital cinema camera with a body that resembles a mirrorless stills camera. Notably, the C70 uses Canon's RF lens mount, making it the first Cinema EOS camera to adopt the company's newest lens system.


The EOS C70 features a Super35 sensor using Canon's next-generation Dual Gain Output (DGO) technology. The DGO sensor reads each pixel at two different gain levels, with one prioritizing saturation and highlight protection and the other suppressing noise in the shadows.


When combined, Canon claims the camera can deliver 16+ stops of dynamic range at up to DCI 4K/60p or 2K/120p (using a Super16 crop). It can also capture 4K/120p and 2K/180p without extended dynamic range. Recording choices include both All-I and intra-frame options using Canon's XF-AVC or MP4 (H.265) codecs.

Seems like a fairly compelling cinema camera; it's a very small body that can capture 4K at 60p with 16+ of dynamic range or 4K at 120p on a dual gain Super 35 sensor, has an internal motorized 10 stop ND filter, has Canon's excellent Dual Pixel AF, with all sorts of video-centric features for about $5499. It is also actively cooled, with the air intake system is separated from the electrical systems.


Also announced is a EF to RF mount adapter with a native speed booster.


In all, it's a package that seems like an excellent run and gun video camera, with the ability to take advantage of all of the new Canon RF mount lenses.

500$ lower would have been nice.
