EOS C700 FF EF Cinema Camera

The Canon EOS C700 is a primary production camera with versatile 5.9K Full Frame CMOS Sensor. Canon’s newly developed Full Frame CMOS sensor offers low noise, wide colour gamut, and a wide dynamic range of 15-stops for a natural look and greater freedom when grading.This cinema camera can produce exceptional image quality in difficult lighting, with a shallow depth of field and excellent bokeh, while supporting both anamorphic and spherical lenses.

  • Canon’s newly developed 38.1 x 20.1mm Full Frame sensor creates a new visual look, shallower depth of field and wide field of view with 15-stops dynamic range and Canon’s outstanding image quality. Versatility when shooting is assured, thanks to sensor modes that support Full Frame, Super 35mm and Super 16mm.
  • Use Canon’s Full Frame EF mount lenses to benefit from Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus. PL mount and B4 options (requiring a EF/PL to B4 adapter) additionally provide a huge range of lens options with Canon’s exceptional image quality.
  • Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF system allows users to reliably and easily maintain sharp focus on subjects as they move throughout the frame, and includes a function to aid manual focusing.
  • Record 5.9K RAW files or 4K ProRes file with an optional CODEX CDX-36150 recorder, or record 4K internally to ProRes or XF-AVC formats for a faster workflow.
  • The C700 FF supports various Log curves, colour spaces and industry standards, maximising the quality of image and natural look.
  • Built-in ND filters, IP streaming capability and optional accessories for camera control allow for flexible camera operation.
