The first Cinema EOS camera with an RF mount
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 EF-EOS R 0.71X mount adapter
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. 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.
Canon Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor
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.
Unique, Compact 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.
High Frame Rate; 4K 120P and 2K CROP 180P
The EOS C70 is capable of ultra-high frame rates with its new chip design and powerful DiG!C DV7 processor. Frame rates up to 120 fps can be obtained in 4K, while 2K CROP mode provides even greater flexibility with speeds up to 180 fps. The EOS C70 supports Dual Pixel CMOS AF, even when shooting at high frame rates, keeping the camera in focus even when mounted on gimbals or drones.
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, colour 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.
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.
Electronic Image Stabilization with Coordinated Control
For the first time in a Cinema EOS camera, enhanced image stabilization is available with coordinated control. With an RF lens and the electronic IS in the EOS C70, coordinated control optimizes hand-shake correction, resulting in better anti-vibration performance than the conventional EF lens and electronic IS together. In addition, the EOS C70 adds Super 16 Digital IS, which stabilizes the 2K images by using the peripheral area around the center of the 4K sensor, to provide high performance stabilization.
Dual SD Card Slots with Various Recording Options
The EOS C70 has dual SD card slots for simultaneous recording in different formats, including 4K/HD and XF-AVC/MP4.
