The Canon EOS C70 Cinema Camera (RF) is a cinema-quality camera with a new Super 35 Dual Gain Output sensor that is capable of recording 4:2:2 10-bit video to UHS-I media slots. Key features include:
- Super 35mm dual gain output CMOS sensor
- Internal, 10-bit 4:2:2 recording to dual UHS-I SD slots
- Powered by Canon BP-A batteries
- RF-mount lens compatibility; DIG!C DV7 processor
Canon S35 Dual Gain Output Sensor. The next-gen CMOS sensor in the Canon EOS C70 Cinema Camera (RF) provides DCI 4K/120p capture to two UHS-I SD card slots and improves on many of its predecessor’s already great specs. It generates 16+ stops of dynamic range by combining images using pixels shot with a saturation-prioritizing amplifier for bright regions while using a lower-noise amplifier for darker areas.
DIGIC DV7 Image Processor. The speedy DIGIC DV7 processor works in tandem with the imaging sensor to guarantee high frame-rate recording. This processor also powers the autofocus system, 4:2:2 10-bit recording, HDR output, and lens stabilization.
Dual-Pixel CMOS Autofocus. This autofocus system has phase-detection autofocus with two photodiodes at each pixel, offering greatly improved speed and accuracy. DAF can detect whether your subject is in focus, to which degree it’s in focus, and in which direction. You also get Touch AF and head and face detection modes.
Canon Log 2 and 3 Gammas. Designed to take advantage of the camera’s 10-bit recording capability, the files produced using Log format enables a large degree of color correction/grading in post-production with minimal image degradation. Canon Log 2 gives you the largest dynamic range and image details and is most flexible in postproduction, but it requires more time in color correction. Canon touts that it offers a dynamic range of up to 16 stops. Canon Log 3 is an alternative that gives you a shorter turnaround time with an only marginally reduced, 14-stop dynamic range.
Canon RF Mount. The Canon C70 supports Canon’s line of RF-mount lenses. The RF mount boasts a wide 54mm diameter and a short 20mm flange-back distance, which gives manufacturers the power to design lenses that are smaller and faster than equivalent SLR lenses. The RF mount’s 12-pin electronic contact system also makes for more advanced autofocus and image stabilization. You can use the Canon EF-EOS R 0.71x Mount Adapter to mount EF lenses using the full full frame lens image circle.
