Full-Frame adds the benefits of the new 5.9K FF sensor and the ability to record full frame oversampled, shallow focus & 4K directly to the internal Cfast Card or optional external Codex recorder.

Canon’s new EOS C700 FF PL 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 produce footage with shallower depth of field than Canon cameras with Super 35 sized sensors, giving filmmakers a variety of creative options.

The EOS C700 FF PL is capable of ProRes and XF-AVC internal recording up to 4K to CFast cards. With the optional Codex CDX-36150 recorder, the EOS C700 FF PL is capable of recording 5.9K RAW up to 60 frames per second. 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 PL also has a wide array of 2K/UHD/HD recording options, including recording up to 168 fps in 2K RAW in Super 16mm (crop) mode.

Other key features of the EOS C700 FF PL camera system include an impressive dynamic range of 15 stops., Canon Log 2 and 3, Slow/Fast Motion Recording, IP Streaming and support for ACES, SMPTE ITU-R BT.2100 (HDR) and User LUTs.

The rugged magnesium body was built with rounded edges and semi-circular sides behind the lens mount that hint at the Canon Cinema design legacy. The EOS C700 FF can be equally comfortable handheld, shoulder-mounted, on a tripod head, steadicam, gimbal rig, jib, crane or car mount. An optional professional grade OLED HD electronic viewfinder (EVF-V70) offers additional versatility. The camera is also compatible with a variety of lens configurations including anamorphic and B4 (with the optional MO-4P adapter).

The EOS C700 FF is also available in EF mount, which features Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DAF) technology.

New 5.9K Full Frame CMOS Sensor

The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera offers a new full frame 5.9K CMOS sensor (38.1 x 20.1mm) with a 17:9 aspect ratio. In addition to full frame lenses, the camera can also be used with conventional Super 35mm lenses, and supports both anamorphic and spherical lenses. The sensor is capable of capturing footage in a wide variety of aspect ratios.

The new sensor also offers exceptional low noise, as well as broad-ranging tonality that exceed 15 stops of dynamic range with a wide color gamut. This helps the EOS C700 FF achieve more natural skin tones and a greater freedom in grading, expanding the possibilities for visual expression and offering outstanding effectiveness in HDR video production.

The EF mount version of the camera also features Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology.

Modular Design for Versatile Shooting Configurations

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.

The EOS C700 FF has an optional 0.7-inch OLED Electronic Viewfinder (EVF-V70). Canon's first professional grade viewfinder features Full HD 1920x1080 viewing, view assist and false color. The EVF also has the ability to display an HDR simulated picture with a "stretched" dynamic range for increased shadow detail and highlight retention.

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.

The intuitive 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 EOS C700 FF can be used with an optional accessory Shoulder Support Unit SU-15 with industry-standard rosettes on each side and 15mm rods in front. The unit has a comfortable shoulder pad that consists of two sections that can adjust to fit the width of a camera operator's shoulder. Attaching the shoulder pad to the camera allows for easy handheld operation and still provides a quick release bottom to connect to a tripod.

The EOS C700 FF power management system helps facilitate connecting with various third party accessories. The camera comes standard with a V-mount plate to accept common professional battery systems. External power supplies of +10 – 34 VDC plug into the camera via an industry-standard 4-pin XLR Style power connector. Camera accessories can be powered via a 24V DC 3-pin and a 12V DC 2-pin connector located on the front of the camera to help with cable management.

Multiple Recording Formats

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.

  • RAW Recording

    With an optional Codex CDX-36150 Recorder 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

    Controlled directly through the cameras menu system, the Codex CDX-36150 is attached to the EOS C700 FF by removing the battery plate at the rear of the EOS C700 FF and replacing it with the recorder. This modularity of the EOS C700 FF allows the recorder to be connected securely without wires and act like an integrated part rather than an external accessory. The rear of the Codex recorder has a battery plate with onboard Gold Mount battery connector. External power (10-32 VDC) can also be supplied to the 2-pin connector on the recorder body.

    The Codex Recorder allows recording not only 5.9K RAW, but also ProRes at significantly higher frame rates than internal CFast Cards. When recording, RAW files are saved as a .RMF frame sequence in an uncompressed format with no "baked in settings." Clip development can then be easily adjusted in post using the downloadable Canon Raw Development (CRD) software.

    The CDX-36150 uses one Codex Capture Drive 2.0 (1 TB or 2 TB capacity), a familiar and commonly available professional recording media.
  • ProRes Recording

    The EOS C700 FF records Apple ProRes to CFast media and the optional Codex CDX-36150 Recorder. ProRes recording can help significantly reduce the time and cost of transcoding video files for delivery. Simultaneous dual CFast recording in ProRes is possible for creating an immediate backup.
  • Canon XF-AVC Recording

    The EOS C700 FF can record XF-AVC to two CFast 2.0 card slots on the camera right side of the camera. XF-AVC and ProRes formats (along with metadata) can be simultaneously recorded to either or both CFast cards. Simultaneous recording is helpful, for example, where one card might go to the post house and the other could be stored safely in the production company's archive.

    Relay recording is also possible for situations where changing cards and losing precious seconds is not an option, such as live events, nature and documentaries.
  • Canon XF-AVC (Proxy) Recording

    An 8-bit 4:2:0 Proxy XF-AVC file can be recorded to an SD card for immediate editing. The SD card can also capture JPEG still frames (2048x1080 or 1920x1080), metadata, menus and other information.

5.9K Oversampling for 4K

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

Canon Log 2 and 3

The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera 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. Canon Log 2 provides the largest dynamic range and image detail. 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.

SMPTE ITU-R BT.2100 Support for PQ/HLG Standard

The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera 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. This can further facilitate creative decisions on set where HDR reference equipment and output devices might not be available.

User LUT Support

The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera supports User LUTs. Users can customize their own LUTs and load them on the camera for viewing and recording.

ACES Support

The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera 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.

Additionally, 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.

Canon 17, 24 and 30-inch Reference Displays support ACES image display. The EOS C700 FF has four 3G-SDI outputs at the rear of the camera. So, while the Codex CDX-36150 records 5.9K RAW, the EOS C700 FF can simultaneously send the 5.9K image to a Canon Reference Display. The display debayers the RAW image and converts it to an ACES color space and apply an appropriate LUT. In addition to ACES, Canon's DP-2420 and DP-V2411 Reference Displays support HDR, Canon Log3 and Hybrid Log Gamma.

Triple DIGIC DV 5 Image Processors

"DiG!C" is Canon's acronym for Digital Imaging Integrated Circuit. The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera uses three DiG!C DV 5 processors to power the advanced features of the camera. DiG!C works in conjunction with other subsystems of the camera such as the lens and sensor, to support the various features and the image processing engine.

Additional Features:

The EOS C700 Digital Cinema Camera has a variety of other functions to support a wide range of production needs.

  • Internal ND Filters

    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 internal ND filters are selected with the ND FILTER + and - buttons on the left side of the camera. 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.
  • Anamorphic Lens Support

    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 5.9K resolution by using 1.3x squeeze anamorphic lenses that cover the full 16x9 area of the EOS C700 FF sensor. Popular 2x squeeze anamorphic lenses that cover a native 1.2:1 aspect ratio on the sensor can be used as well using a 4:3 cropped area of the sensor.
  • Intelligent Metadata / I

    Intelligent Metadata is Cooke Optics' open source technology of using encoders within the lens and contacts on the camera to display and record metadata with focus, iris, focal length, serial number and other helpful lens information. The EOS C700 FF PL is fitted with /i contacts. The metadata can be helpful on set to display lens information on monitors. Camera assistants can see an immediate graphic representation of depth of field. Script supervisors can get instant updates of lens, focal length, distance and aperture. /i Technology is used in VFX work for matching moves and determining lens parameters.
  • B4 Lenses

    Two B4 mount adapters are available for the EOS C700 FF, B4 to EF adapter (MO-4E) and B4 to PL adapter (MO-4P). Canon's B4 mount adapter blows up the image slightly, resizing the 2/3” image circle to approximately 1” to correspond with native HD resolution on the EOS C700 FF sensor. This design helps minimize light loss through the adapter, while maintaining depth of field and range of the 2/3” lens. For power and control with B4 servo lenses the C700 FF features a 12-pin lens connector on the front of the camera body.
  • Slow and Fast Motion Recording

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

    IP Streaming enables users to send their video online, in real time, as they shoot. It works with compatible IP decoders, IP streaming software and other devices for live streaming to video websites, news shows, video productions, post production facilities, editing rooms and broadcast stations. The EOS C700 FF supports MPEG2-TS with UDP, RTP, RTSP+RTP protocols. 

    *IP streaming is not supported during 5.9K shooting. IP streaming is enabled only when camera mode is set to system frequency 59.94 / 50.00 (Hz), YCC, 16:9 (UHD / FHD (HD)).
  • Wireless Remote Capabilities

    The EOS C700 FF can connect to a wireless network using a Canon wireless file transmitter (WFT-E6/WFT-E8). Using the WFT Transmitter, users can operate the camera and view live images using a Wi-Fi® connected device with a compatible web browser.
  • GPS

    When an optional Canon GP-E1 GPS receiver is connected to the EOS C700 FF, GPS information can be added to the metadata. This is selected using the menu. GPS position (altitude, latitude, longitude) and time can be recorded where GPS service is available.
  • RC-V100 Support

    Canon's RC-V100 Remote Controller plugs into the EOS C700 FF via an RS422 connector on the rear panel. This optional accessory allows image quality adjustments and camera operations to be set from a distance.
