EOS C70 - Cinema EOS
Developed with an idea of combining the Cinema EOS series with the EOS R series, the new EOS C70 offers exceptional image quality and professional video features in a compact and mobile form factor, perfect for documentary, newsgathering, and corporate videos.
The EOS C70 is the first Cinema EOS camera with a built-in RF-lens mount, which was previously a feature that was only used for the EOS R series of mirrorless cameras. The RF-mount offers users access to Canon's superb line of
Canon Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor, 16+ stops of Total Dynamic Range
The EOS C70 features Canon's next generation Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor. This new sensor is capable of a total dynamic range in excess of 16 stops and includes Canon's exclusive Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus technology.
The DGO Sensor is a newly developed imaging system that generates high dynamic range and maintains low noise levels by reading out each photodiode with two different gains. It combines the two with a saturation prioritizing gain for bright areas, and a lower noise prioritizing gain for darker areas.
DIG!C DV7 Image Processor
The EOS C70 features Canon's DIG!C DV7 image processor that takes the extensive RAW information captured from the imaging sensor and processes it for output. DiG!C is also the engine behind features such as high frame rate recording, Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor, Dual Pixel Autofocus, HDR (PQ) output, Electronic Image Stabilization, and proxy recording.
Canon Log 2 and 3, PQ, and HLG Recording
The EOS C70 supports both Canon Log 2 and Canon Log 3 Gamma. In post-production, Canon Log is designed to reproduce the entire tonal range that the CMOS image sensor is capable of. Log workflows provide the user with higher dynamic range, more highlight and shadow retention, and more flexibility in color grading.
Canon Log 2 provides the largest dynamic range and image detail. However, while Canon Log 2 provides the most post-production flexibility and full dynamic range of the sensor, it typically requires more time in post and color correction.
For users looking for most of the benefits of a log workflow, but with shorter turnaround times, Canon Log 3 provides an alternative with only a slightly reduced dynamic range of 14 stops.
The EOS C70 also features HLG and PQ compliance with ITU-BT.2100 in Custom Picture (CP) presets, allowing users to record HDR footage instantly without grading.
The EOS C70 is the first Cinema EOS camera engineered with a built-in RF mount making it compatible with Canon's expanding line of high-performance RF lenses. The short flange distance helps to dramatically reduce body depth, resulting in a more compact design.
EF Lens Compatibility with Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x
In addition to RF lenses, the EOS C70 offers tremendous flexibility by also being compatible with Canon's broad line of award-winning EF lenses thanks to the new EF - RF optical adapter, Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x. This adapter converts light transmission from full-frame to Super 35mm image format. It extends the angle of view and optical sensitivity, while seamlessly integrating with the camera's optical corrections. mount adapter.
In addition to the flanges of the RF mount, four screws securely attach the adapter to the camera. Once mounted, the adapter maintains a similar angle of view of your full frame lenses on the Super 35mm sensor, while boosting the speed of the attached lens by an average of 1-stop. The adapter also carries all EF information through to the RF contacts, so on certain lenses, full DPAF and metadata will be available, working much as they do on a native EF mount.
Direct Touch Control
The EOS C70 is equipped with Direct Touch Control which allows easy access to commonly used menu settings on the fully-rotatable LCD screen. Users will be able to simply touch the screen to start/stop recording, access file format and resolution, set ISO/Gain, color temperature and iris, and display important settings. Shooting settings that were once in various places of the menu can now be accessed with one hand, allowing for on-the-spot changes while holding the camera.
9x16 Vertical Shooting
The EOS C70 supports vertical shooting, which is crucial for creators looking to capture content for smart devices and digital signage. The user interface can be switched to support vertical shooting with the same feel as horizontal shooting. A 1/4/20 tripod hole is built into the side of the camera grip, allowing users to easily attach a tripod without special accessories.
New Compact, Uni-Body Design
The EOS C70 features a new uni-body design that exhibits a compact form factor and an ergonomic built-in grip making handheld shooting easy and comfortable.
The EOS C70 is equipped with two mini-XLR audio input terminals for professional audio recording. Additionally, manual audio control dials let users intuitively and quickly adjust the audio control.
Built-in Neutral Density Filter System
The newly-developed thin, motorized ND filter unit has been specifically designed for the RF mount's short flange back. It offers up to 10 stops of ND, allowing users to shoot in various lighting conditions.
Time Code Terminal
The EOS C70 includes a time code input/output terminal in the lower front of the body that makes synchronizing easier in multi-camera productions.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF, EOS iTR AF X, Dual Pixel Focus Guide
Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology uses every pixel on the imaging sensor to detect focus and to capture actual image information, offering users high precision focusing and exceptional image quality.
The EOS C70 is the first Cinema EOS camera to feature EOS iTR AF X, which includes a head detection algorithm developed with deep learning technology. In Face Detection mode, the AF works with this advanced algorithm to dramatically improve distance measuring and tracking reliability.
The EOS C70 also features Dual Pixel Focus Guide, which is an innovative UI that gives users both front- and back-focus information telling users if the focus position is in the back or the front, aiding in smooth pulls during manual focus.
