Canon launches flagship full frame Cinema EOS camera
Canon today releases its flagship full frame Cinema EOS camera, the C700 FF. Thanks to a newly developed, next generation Canon full frame 38.1 mm x 20.1mm CMOS sensor, the camera is capable of recording up to 5.9K, delivering ultimate creative freedom and quality. The EOS C700 FF also supports multi-format recording, shooting with EF, PL and anamorphic lenses. When using EF lenses, the C700 FF supports Canon’s innovative autofocus (AF) system, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which is ideal for full frame format shooting.

New sensor technology, sensor modes & recording formats
The newly developed full frame 38.1mm x 20.1mm CMOS sensor, designed for high-end production, enables filmmakers to capture filmic images with unprecedented low noise, natural skin tones, shallow depth-of-field, and a broad ranging tonality that exceeds 15-stops of dynamic range. This provides freedom and flexibility in grading and post production, as well as in the capture of HDR images. The newly designed sensor also allows the user to explore different sensor modes including full frame, Super 35mm and Super 16mm, whilst recording in a wide range of versatile recording formats including ProRes, XF-AVC (internally to CFast cards) and Canon’s uncompressed Cinema RAW.
Using the dedicated CODEX CDX-36150, the EOS C700 FF can record 5.9k 12/10-bit RAW, with 4K and 2K RAW 12-bit options available, as well as shooting ProRes 4K. For high frame rate shooting, the EOS C700 FF can shoot up to 60fps (5.9K), 72fps (4K crop) and at up to 168fps (2K crop). Using the 5.9K oversampling processing, the camera is also able to deliver a higher quality 4K and 2K image with reduced moiré and noise.
