WATCH: Canon EOS C700 At Canon Hollywood – Dual Pixel Auto Focus, Internal 4K ProRes & More

We went to Canon’s latest open house at their Canon Hollywood facility to speak with Alex Sax about the flexible and versatile Super35 format C700 camera.

In this video, Sax takes us through all of the features and innovations of the C700 and also talks about the new short film produced by Cinematographer Russell Carpenter, ASC and Canon Explorer Of Light Tyler Stableford entitled The Calling shot on location in Colorado.

The EOS C700 features a new design when compared to previous Cinema EOS products. The EOS C700 is a full-size cinema camera allowing for both traditional studio style and handheld configurations.

The C700 is lightweight enough for handheld work

 

The camera body includes built-in cheese plates with numerous 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 threaded holes on the top and bottom to easily attach accessories. The top handle attaches in a variety of positions for assisting in achieving optimum balance.

C700 Main Control Panel

 

The 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 C700 Removable Control Panel

 

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 all 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.

Dual Pixel AutoFocus

The EOS C700 offers the option of two different sensor designs. The EOS C700 offers a 4.5K CMOS sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. The standard sensor will be offered in both PL and EF mounts. The EF mount version of the camera features Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology.

The EOS C700 GS PL features global shutter technology. Global shutter technology is helpful for sports, fast action, concerts and events where it eliminates “jello” and “flash band” artifacts.
