Canon 1454C003AA (145/4C003AA, 145-4C003AA, 145/4C00/3AA, 145 4C00/3AA) (EOS/C700/EF , EOS/C700EF EOS-C700-EF) EOS C700EF 4K Camera
A brand new addition to the Canon Cinema Camera family, the Canon EOS C700 is a flexible, robust and highly capable primary 4K camera. An ideal solution for dramas, independent film and documentary that is configurable for various production workflows, so no matter how you do things, the Canon EOS C700 is the camera for you. It even includes support for HDR monitoring.
The Canon EOS C700 offers two sensor design options; Canon's Super 35mm 4.5K CMOS sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range, offered in both the PL and EF mount versions, with the EF mount featuring Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology. Canon EOS C700 GS PL benefits from global shutter technology, which is ideal for sports, quick action, live concerts and events; where the 'wobble' effect is eradicated. Each pixel on the sensor captures the image concurrently, whereas typical CMOS sensors scan the image from top to bottom; dependent on the shutter speed, the delay between capture of the first line and last can result in a 'wobble' or 'jello' effect, where straight lines appear wavy. By capturing the image at once, the occurrence of this happening is greatly reduced. The EOS C700 GS PL features 14 stops of dynamic range and does not offer Dual Pixel CMOS AF.With a highly flexible workflow, the Canon EOS C700 supports ACES 1.0 and SMPTE ST.2084 for HDR on-set monitoring. The colour space options range from Cinema Gamut and BT.2020 to DCI-P3. Additionally, this camera offers internal recording to ProRes/XF-AVC, or external RAW recording via optional RAW recorders. The EOS C700 supports MPEG2-TS with UDP, RTP, RTSP+RTP protocols.
The EOS C700 features a new full size design allowing for both traditional studio style and handheld configurations. The camera body has built in cheese plates with various 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 threaded holes on the top and bottom to easily attach vital accessories. The top handle attaches in multiple positions for assisting in achieving optimum balance.
The EOS C700 has an optional 0.7-inch OLED Electronic Viewfinder (EVF-V70). Which is Canon's first professional grade viewfinder; featuring Full HD 1920x1080 viewing, surround view, view assist and false colour. The EVF also has the ability to display an HDR simulated picture with a "stretched" dynamic range for increased shadow detail and highlight retention.
Both sides of the camera can have redundant main displays with menus and controls. A built in control panel on the camera operator side allows quick access to the camera controls. Canon's optional new Remote Operation Unit OU-700 attaches to the camera's right side and mimics the functions of the built-in Main Display. It conveniently flips up for access to the CFast and SD card slots. This allows for camera operation from both sides of the camera making camera adjustment easy for both operator and assistant.
The intuitive six button layout of the menu system allows quick access to frequently used camera functions such as ISO, shutter, slow and fast motion, etc. and may instantly feel very familiar and comfortable to camera operators. Within each quick access function is the ability to access deeper menu options so complete camera control and customization is always accessible while the menu remains clean and easily usable.
The EOS C700 can be used with an optional accessory Shoulder Support Unit SU-15 with industry-standard rosettes on each side and 15mm rods in front. The unit has a comfortable shoulder pad that consists of two sections that can adjust to fit the width of a camera operator's shoulder. Attaching the shoulder pad to the camera allows for easy handheld operation and still provides a quick release bottom to connect to a tripod.
The EOS C700 has a significantly upgraded power management system to help facilitate connecting with various third party accessories. The camera comes standard with a V-mount plate to accept common professional battery systems. External power supplies of +10 - 34 VDC plug into the camera via an industry-standard 4-pin XLR Style power connector. Camera accessories can be powered via a 24V DC 3-pin and a 12V DC 2-pin connector located on the front of the camera to help with cable management.
With an optional Codex CDX-36150 attached, the EOS C700 can record uncompressed 10-bit or 12-bit 4K RAW up to 120 fps, 2K RAW up to 240 fps, or ProRes 4K up to 60 fps. The Codex CDX-36150 is made specifically for the EOS C700 and attaches to the rear of the camera and is controlled directly through the cameras menu system.
The Codex CDX-36150 RAW Recorder is attached to the EOS C700 by removing the battery plate at the rear of the EOS C700 and replacing it with the recorder. This modularity of the EOS C700 allows the recorder to be connected securely without wires and act like an integrated part rather than an external accessory. The rear of the Codex recorder has a battery plate with onboard Gold Mount battery connector. External power (10-32 VDC) can also be supplied to the 2-pin connector on the recorder body.
Codex CDX-36150 is an integrated system when attached to the EOS C700. The Codex Recorder allows recording not only 4K RAW, but also ProRes at significantly higher frame rates than internal CFast Cards. When recording RAW files are saved as a .RMF frame sequence in an uncompressed format with no "baked in setting." Clip development can then be easily adjusted in post using the included Canon Raw Development (CRD) software.
The CDX-36150 uses one Codex Capture Drive 2.0 (1 TB or 2 TB capacity), a familiar and commonly available professional recording media. The EOS C700 has two modes of internal recording: Canon XF-AVC and Apple ProRes. Both record to internal CFast Media. XF-AVC records up to 59.94p in 4K onto the CFast media. The EOS C700 has the fastest frames rates available of any Canon Cinema EOS Camera to date. In addition to the 4K 60P, EOS C700 also features 2K recording up to 120 frame per second and a crop 2K mode featuring up to 240 frames per second.
The camera also records Apple ProRes to CFast media. This is the first time a Canon Cinema EOS camera records ProRes internally. This can help significantly reduce the time and cost of transcoding video files for productions using ProRes as an intermediate and delivery format. Simultaneous dual CFast recording is available for creating an immediate backup.
The EOS C700 features two CFast 2.0 card slots on the camera right side and one SD card slot. The EOS C700 can record XF-AVC and ProRes (along with metadata) simultaneously to either or both CFast cards. Simultaneous recording is helpful, for example, where one card might go to the post house and the other could be stored safely in the production company's archive. Relay recording is also possible for situations where changing cards and losing precious seconds is not an option (sporting events, speeches, nature documentaries). At the same time, an 8-bit 4:2:0 Proxy XF-AVC file can be recorded to the SD card for immediate editing. The SD card can also capture JPEG still frames (2048x1080 or 1920x1080), metadata, menus and other information.
The EOS C700 supports Canon Log 2 and Canon Log 3 Gamma. Canon Log is designed to reproduce, in post production, the entire tonal range that the CMOS image sensor is capable of. Log workflow provides the user with higher dynamic range, more highlight and shadow retention, and more flexibility in grading. Canon Log 2 provides the largest dynamic range and image detail. While Canon Log 2 provides the most post-production flexibility and the full 15 stops of dynamic range of the sensor, it requires more post time. For users looking for most of the benefits of 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 C700 features the option to output ST 2084 over the monitor port to assist in HDR production. ST 2084 allows compatible monitors to simulate the HDR look of the final piece allowing for easier lighting and other technical decisions on set during the acquisition process.
The optional Canon Electronic Viewfinder (EVF-V70) also allows for a ST 2084 simulation mode to allow the camera operator to see HDR visuals close to what is supplied on the monitor signal. This can further facilitate creative decisions on set where HDR reference equipment and output devices might not be available.
The colour space options range from Cinema Gamut and BT.2020 to DCI-P3. Additionally, this camera offers internal recording to ProRes/XF-AVC, or external RAW recording via optional RAW recorders. The EOS C700 supports Rec. 2020, which is the UHDTV display colour space. Rec. 2020 support means that production looking to go straight to the UHD format can start in that expanded colour space without the need to do conversions. The EOS C700 supports ACES 1.0 of the Academy Colour Encoding System. Using Canon supplied IDTs, images captured on the EOS C700 can be imported directly into the ACES compatible systems.
Additionally, video output from the camera can be monitored by selecting the ACES Proxy. Aces Proxy allows the camera to send a monitor output that simulates ACES space to a compatible monitor or device. Modifications made using the proxy output can be saved and later brought into the editing or grading suite to help insure changes and colour choices made on set are accurately reproduced in post.
Canon 17, 24 and 30-inch Reference Displays support ACES image display. The C700 has four 3G-SDI outputs at the rear of the camera. So, while the Codex CDX-36150 records 4K RAW, the EOS C700 can simultaneously send the 4K image to a Canon Reference Display. The Canon Monitor debayers the RAW image and converts it to an ACES colour space. In addition to ACES, Canon's new DP-2420 Reference Display nicely supports HDR, Canon Log3 and Hybrid Log Gamma.
The EOS C700 Digital Cinema Camera features next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology. Each pixel in the camera's CMOS sensor is configured with two photodiodes. Two independent image signals can then be detected at each photosite. By implementing phase-difference AF, smooth focusing is accomplished using Canon EF lenses with much higher speed and accuracy than was possible with previous technologies.
The EOS C700 has rapid one-touch AF (with a push-button) and continuous AF within approximately 80% of the overall image area. Face detection AF is another autofocus mode that can track a person's face in the frame and maintain focus on them. To further fine tune AF performance, the EOS C700 offers the ability to set the AF tracking speed and response.
DAF also makes possible the Dual Pixel Focus Guide. Dual Pixel Focus Guide presents the user with a rectangle in the center of the EVF or monitor. The rectangle turns green when the subject is in focus. If the subject is out of focus the box will turn gray and the arrows will indicate which way to adjust the lens to regain focus. New in the EOS C700 is a focus pre-set feature. Separate predetermined focus points can be selected and when the SET button is pushed, the lens will move focus from one mark to the other.
"DIGIC" is Canon's acronym for Digital Imaging Integrated Circuit. The EOS C700 uses three DIGIC DV 5 processors to power the advanced features of the camera. DIGIC works in conjunction with other subsystems of the camera such as the lens and sensor to support the various features and the image processing engine.
The EOS C700 features in-camera ND filters to help save production time and help increase shooting versatility without the need to change filters. The internal ND filters are selected with the ND FILTER + and - buttons on the left side of the camera.
The EOS C700 uses an internal, motorized ND assembly consisting of two rotating disks with glass ND filters between the rear of the lens and the front of the sensor. This combination of ND filters allows 2, 4 and 6 stops of ND in normal mode and 8 and 10 stops in extended mode.
The EOS C700 supports anamorphic format lenses by electronically desqueezing the image in the viewfinder and on connected monitors for viewing. On the sensor users can take advantage of the camera's full 4K resolution by using 1.3x squeeze anamorphic lenses that cover the full 16x9 area of the EOS C700 sensor. Popular 2x squeeze anamorphic lenses that cover a native 1.2:1 aspect ratio on the sensor can be used as well using a cropped area of the sensor.
Two B4 mount adapters are available for the EOS C700, B4 to EF adapter (MO-4E) and B4 to PL adapter (MO-4P). Canon's B4 mount adapter blows up the image slightly, resizing the 2/3" image circle to approximately 1" to correspond with native HD resolution on the EOS C700 sensor. This design helps minimize light loss through the adapter, while maintaining depth of field and range of the 2/3" lens. For power and control with B4 servo lenses the C700 features a 12-pin lens connector on the front of the camera body.
IP Streaming enables users to send their video online, in real time, as they shoot. It works with compatible IP decoders, IP streaming software and other devices for live streaming to video websites, news shows, video productions, post production facilities, editing rooms and broadcast stations.
The EOS C700 can connect to a wireless network using a Canon wireless file transmitter (WFT-E6A / WFT-E8A). Using the WFT Transmitter, users can operate the camera and view live images using a Wi-Fi® connected device with a compatible web browser.
When an optional Canon GP-E1 GPS receiver is connected to the EOS C700, GPS information can be added to the metadata. This is selected using the menu. GPS position (altitude, latitude, longitude) and time can be recorded where GPS service is available. Canon's RC-V100 Remote Controller plugs into the EOS C700 via an RS422 connector on the rear panel. This optional accessory allows image quality adjustments and camera operations to be set from a distance.
