After numerous weeks of rumors and leaks, Canon has formally uncovered its first RF-Mount Cinema EOS camera: the 4K EOS C70. Likewise, the company additionally appeared another EF-to-RF speedbooster, which permits clients to exploit full-outline EF focal points on the C70’s Super 35mm sensor.
The EOS C70 is the main Canon film camera with a RF mount, and as such Canon is considering it a “seamless bridge between EOS and Cinema EOS.” Thanks to its RF mount and unibody plan, the camera is the littlest Cinema EOS camera to date, making it ideal for run-and-gun shooting or more adaptable situations like narratives, news gathering, and corporate videos.
As it were: in case you’re a movie producer, Canon truly needs to push you towards this camera as opposed to the EOS R5.
In the event that you do choose to go Cinema EOS, Canon has incorporated some convenient highlights. At its center, the EOS C70 highlights a Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) sensor that professes to offer an astounding 16-stops of dynamic range by reading each photodiode at two distinct increases: one to organize immersion and securing point of interest in feature territories, and the other to stifles clamor in the shadows.
In this mode, the camera can shoot up to 4K/60p or 2K/120p (with a Super 16 yield), or you can deactivate the all-inclusive unique range and catch up to 4K/120p or 2K/180p.
Other striking highlights incorporate dual-pixel autofocus, “coordinated” electronic IS, uphold for Canon Log 2 and Canon Log 3 Gamma, two SD card openings that can record distinctive codecs and goals simultaneously, two scaled down XLR sound sources of info, a full-sized HDMI port, and an inherent ND channel framework that puts 2-, 4-, 6-, 8-, and 10-stop alternatives directly into the camera body.
Furthermore, in the event that you were thinking about what Canon considers appropriate cooling for a no-record-limits film camera with a RF mount—even one that maximums out at 4K goal—the EOS C70 is your answer. From the monstrous body, to the outer battery arrangement, to the gigantic fan behind the LCD screen that allegedly doesn’t affect climate fixing, Canon isn’t playing here.
Notwithstanding the camera, Canon has likewise appeared another optical adapter called the EF-EOS R 0.71x. As it were: Canon made an EF-to-RF mount 0.71x speedbooster.
The connector is made explicitly for the C70, joining through the standard spine and afterward making sure about to the camera utilizing two screw-in sections.
As you would anticipate from a central reducer, the EF-EOS R 0.71x optical adapter can squeeze the whole full-frame picture from EF lenses onto the 4K Super 35mm picture sensor of the C70, while at the same time expanding affectability by one stop as it assembles all the more light.
