Product Description:

Canon's new EOS C700 FF top-end digital cinema camera features a full-frame CMOS sensor designed to meet an extensive range of production needs. The camera's full-frame sensor provides higher resolution and produces footage with shallower depth of field than Canon cameras with Super 35mm sized sensors, giving filmmakers a variety of creative options. Capable of 5.9K RAW recording up to 60 frames per second with the optional Codex CDX-36150 Recorder, the camera can also record ProRes and XF-AVC up to 4K to internal CFast™ cards. When oversampling 5.9K in 4K/UHD recording, moiré is suppressed and noise graininess improved, resulting in higher quality video compared to native 4K image capture.

The EOS C700 FF brings high-resolution, full-frame power that can unlock new creative possibilities for your productions with its 5.9K CMOS sensor, oversampling 4K processing and shallow depth of field. The sensor on EOS C700 Super 35mm models can be replaced by Canon's Factory Service Center to create a full-frame camera, providing flexibility to match your specific recording needs.


The EOS C700 FF offers a new full-frame 5.9K CMOS sensor (38.1 x 20.1mm), developed especially for this top-end cinema camera for use with a variety of lenses including full-frame. The sensor can record footage in a wide variety of aspect ratios including the standardized DCI 17:9. It also offers exceptionally low noise, broad-ranging tonality that exceed 15 stops of dynamic range and a wide color gamut supporting the ITU-R BT.2100 standard for outstanding effectiveness in HDR video production.


The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera uses a high-quality debayering algorithm when over sampling 5.9K in 4K, UHD, 2K and FHD recording to help suppress moiré and improve noise graininess, resulting in high-quality video.


When shooting with the EOS C700 FF, the full-frame sensor allows for a shallower depth of field compared to cameras with smaller sensors. This larger range gives filmmakers a greater variety of creative options.


“DIGIC” is Canon's acronym for Digital Imaging Integrated Circuit. The EOS C700 FF uses three DIGIC DV 5 Image Processors to power the advanced features of the camera. DIGIC works in conjunction with other subsystems of the camera such as the lens and sensor to support various features and the image processing engine.


The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera features next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DAF) Technology, allowing smooth focusing to be accomplished using Canon EF lenses with much higher speed and accuracy than was possible with previous technologies. Combined with phase-difference AF, smooth focusing is accomplished using Canon EF lenses with much higher speed and accuracy than previously possible. Autofocus modes include rapid One-touch AF, continuous AF within approximately 80% of the overall image area and Face Detection AF. The EOS C700 FF also offers the ability to set the AF tracking speed and response.


DAF also makes possible the Dual Pixel Focus Guide, which presents the user with a rectangle in the center of the EVF or monitor. The rectangle turns green when the subject is in focus, and gray when the subject is out of focus with arrows indicating which way to adjust the lens to regain focus. A focus pre-set feature allows separate predetermined focus points to be selected, and when the SET button is pushed, the lens will move focus from one mark to the other.


The EOS C700 FF features in-camera ND filters to help save production time and help increase shooting versatility without the need to change filters. The camera uses an internal, all glass motorized ND unit. This combination of ND filters allows 2, 4 and 6 stops of ND in normal mode and 8 and 10 stops in extended mode.


In addition to the 5.9K RAW 60P, the EOS C700 FFalso features 4K (crop) recording up to 72 frames per second and a 2K (crop) mode featuring up to 168 frames per second.


The EOS C700 FF features a wide range of options to fit your particular workflow. With an optional Codex Recorder CDX-36150 attached, the EOS C700 FF can record 5.9K RGB Bayer RAW up to 60 fps, 4K RAW (Super 35mm crop) up to 72fps and 2K RAW (Super 16mm crop) up to 168 fps. ProRes and XF-AVC recording to CFast™ cards is also available, as is XF-AVC (Proxy) recording.

The EOS C700 FF supports Canon Log 2 and Canon Log 3 Gamma. Canon Log is designed to reproduce, in post-production, the entire tonal range that the CMOS image sensor is capable of. Log workflows provide the user with higher dynamic range, more highlight and shadow retention and more flexibility in grading.

While Canon Log 2 provides the most post-production flexibility and the full 15 stops of dynamic range of the sensor, it requires more post time. For users looking for most of the benefits of log workflow, but with shorter turnaround times, Canon Log 3 provides an alternative with only a slightly reduced dynamic range of 14 stops.


The EOS C700 FF features the option to output HDR formats conforming to ITU-R BT.2100 over the monitor input to assist in HDR production. ITU-R BT.2100 allows compatible monitors to simulate the HDR look of the final piece allowing for easier lighting and other technical decisions on set during the acquisition process.

The optional Canon Electronic Viewfinder EVF-V70 also allows for an ITU-R BT.2100 simulation mode to allow the camera operator to see HDR visuals close to what is supplied on the monitor signal.


The EOS C700 FF supports User LUTs. This enables confirmation of output converted at pre-registered User LUTs as well as proxy recording.


The EOS C700 FF supports ACES 1.0 of the Academy Color Encoding System. Using Canon supplied IDTs, images captured on the EOS C700 FF can be imported directly into the ACES compatible systems.

Video output from the camera can be monitored by selecting the ACES Proxy. ACES Proxy allows the camera to send a monitor output that simulates ACES space to a compatible monitor or device. Modifications made using the proxy output can be saved and later brought into the editing or grading suite to help insure changes and color choices made on set are accurately reproduced in post.


The EOS C700 FF supports anamorphic format lenses by electronically desqueezing the image in the viewfinder and on connected monitors for viewing. On the sensor users can take advantage of the camera's full 4K resolution by using 1.3x squeeze anamorphic lenses that cover the full 16x9 area of the EOS C700 FF sensor, while popular 2x squeeze anamorphic lenses can also be used via a cropped area of the sensor.


The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera features a modular design which allows for a wide range of shooting applications, supporting a variety of workflows. The EOS C700 FF is a full-size cinema camera allowing for both traditional studio style and handheld configurations.

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 in order to achieve optimum balance.


Canon's line-up of EF lenses is bolstered by a long history of excellence and innovation that has earned the trust of professional videographers. Constructed with performance and reliability in mind, they deliver superb 4K quality with minimal distortion for virtually any production. With a wide variety of focal lengths available in both prime and zoom lens options, Canon's line-up can provide a brilliant choice to meet specific recording scenarios.


Two B4 mount adapters are available for the EOS C700 FF: a B4 to EF adapter (MO-4E) and a B4 to PL adapter (MO-4P). Canon's B4 mount adapter blows up the image slightly, helping minimize light loss while maintaining the depth of field and range of the 2/3” lens. A 12-pin lens connector preserves power and control with B4 servo lenses.
