Canon Announces EOS C70, the first Cinema EOS camera


Canon has announced the EOS C70 camera, the newest addition to the Cinema EOS System. Utilizing Canon’s RF lens mount, the new camera achieves a compact and lightweight design and supports 4K/120P high frame rate recording, enabling rich visual expression. Alongside the camera, Canon also announced the launch of the mount adapter for EOS C70. The Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x (sold separately) will enable the camera to support an extensive lineup of EF lens series, opening a myriad of possibilities for creative cinematography. 

The EOS C70 is the first Cinema EOS System camera to be equipped with an RF mount, which makes it compatible with any of the RF lenses from Canon’s EOS R System.

Featuring a 4K Super 35mm CMOS DGO (Dual Gain Output) sensor, the EOS C70 can capture high-image-quality 4K video in 4:2:2 (10-bit) color that delivers rich gradation, even in environments which demand high dynamic range. Moreover, the camera is equipped with the DIGIC DV7 image-processing platform capable of high-speed processing, enabling users to record high-frame rate 4K/120P video to UHS-II standard SD cards. Employing a miniaturized optical system, the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x allows for video recording with an angle of view close to that of the mounted full-frame lens. This allows users to take full advantage of the wide selection of EF series lenses as well as expands the possibilities and flexibility of video production.

Commenting on flagship launch, Kazutada Kobayashi, President & CEO, Canon India said, “We are extremely delighted to announce the launch of our EOS C70 camera for cinematographers and videographers and we are certain that this product is aptly armed to cater to the evolving needs of the cinema & broadcasting professionals in the country with an absolutely new design and form factor.”

Commenting on the product, C Sukumaran, Director, Consumer System Products & Imaging Communication Products said, “Keeping in mind the dynamic requirements of today’s filming professionals, we have launched the EOS C70 camera and its lens adaptor, the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x. Furthermore, its newly designed “Direct Touch Control” function with vertical shooting options will allow users to change recording settings swiftly and directly from the camera’s touchscreen panel, making filming a seamless experience.”
