Canon has announced the launch of the EOS C70 camera, the newest addition to the Cinema EOS System. Utilising Canon’s RF lens mount, the new camera achieves a compact and lightweight design and supports 4K/120P high frame rate recording. Alongside the camera, Canon also announced the launch of the mount adapter for EOS C70. The Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x (sold separately) will enable the camera to support an extensive line-up of EF lens series.
Featuring a 4K Super 35 mm CMOS DGO (Dual Gain Output) sensor, the C70 can capture 4K video in 4:2:2 (10-bit) colour. Moreover, the camera is equipped with the DIGIC DV7 image-processing platform, enabling users to record high-frame rate 4K/120P video to UHS-II standard SD cards. Employing a miniaturised optical system, the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x allows for video recording with an angle of view close to that of the mounted full-frame lens. The camera inherits many features found in the existing Cinema EOS lines, including two mini XLRs, audio control dials, Timecode IN/OUT, full HDMI terminal and the newly designed “Direct Touch Control” function, that allows users to change recording settings quickly and directly from the camera’s touchscreen panel.
The EOS C70 and the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x sales will start in November 2020. As of now, no price related information has been shared by the company.
