Canon 4507C006 (EOS-C70, EOS/C70, EOS_C70, EOSC70, eos c70) EOS C70 Compact Cinema Camera
The EOS C70 is a new generation RF Mount Cinema EOS System camera featuring Canon’s 4K Super 35mm DGO sensor. With 4K 120P Slow Motion, High Dynamic Range and Dual Pixel CMOS AF in a compact body, it takes the RF System into a brand new era.
Compact, Lightweight and Reliable
The EOS C70 features a new design, including a multi-function grip with 3 customisable dials and multi-directional joystick. The camera is built to be a tough and lightweight workhorse, thanks to the carbon fibre polycarbonate body. The compact design also enables it to be comfortably rigged to drones, gimbals, hand-held or shoulder rigs, as well as FPV helmets and vehicles.
A dual gain sensor that delivers more
On the DGO sensor, each pixel will read out the image with two different amplification levels, one high and one low, which will then be combined to make a single image. The higher amplification read-out is optimized to capture clean details in darker areas, while the lower amplification read-out is optimized to capture the details in brighter areas. Hence, when combined together at pixel-level accuracy, the details and the qualities on both the highlight, as well as the low light areas will be maintained and enhanced which enables the camera to achieve an impressive higher dynamic range of up to 16+ stops.
The RF Mount. The future of imaging.
The large diameter RF mount with its short back focus and 12-pin communication delivers a balance of optical and electronic innovation plus scintillating AF speed from Canon’s range of RF lenses.
Versatile. Flexible. Reliable. Your new workhorse.
The EOS C70 uses design cues from other RF mount cameras from Canon, with additional controls, environmental protection and a convenient size to fit your production rig.
Dynamically different: the 4K Super 35mm sensor
Equipped with a newly developed 4K Super 35mm sensor and DIGIC DV7 image processor, the EOS C70 delivers a high-resolution image with 16+ stops of Dynamic Range.
Multiple recording formats
Dual UHS-II SD card slots enable simultaneous or relay recording. XF-AVC supports ALL-I and Long-GOP, while MP4 recording offers further flexibility.
Pioneering autofocus technology
The EOS C70 features the renowned Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DPAF). Filmmakers can now benefit from accurate and reliable autofocus with subject tracking and face detection.
Professional and practical support functions
Keep your workflow smooth when shooting with the EOS C70 thanks to useful features such as Direct Touch Control, Auto ISO, Vertical shooting, as well as electronic Image Stabilizer.
Professional I/O Interface
Stay in control with customisable buttons, pro terminals, plus sophisticated audio controls and recording.
