The Canon EOS PL C700 Cinema Camera puts the mastery of image processing into a cinema-grade production-ready form factor. This version of the C700 an ARRI PL lens mount, opening up a wealth of compatible vintage and modern cinema lens options. The 12-o'clock position of the PL mount is home to the Cooke /i lens interface, which passes lens information, such as aperture, focal length, and focus distance in real-time from compatible lenses for electronic display as well as metadata useful in VFX workflows. Beyond the lens mount is the first stop in the C700's imaging pipeline, the 4.5K CMOS image sensor. With a physical resolution exceeding that of DCI 4K and a dynamic range of approximately 15 stops, the C700 is ready for today's 4K and HDR productions.


The Canon C700 is capable of 4K recording at 60p to CFast 2.0 cards using the XF-AVC format. Also available are Apple's well-regarded ProRes formats for direct-to-edit workflows. Raw recording is another possibility through Canon's separately available Codex Digital Recorder which simply clips onto the rear of the C700's modular design. The Canon C700 has a familiar user interface. Most basic functions can be accessed through the six buttons surrounding the screen. More advanced settings can be found using the simple selection dial and set buttons. I/O options for nearly any application can be found on the C700's side panel. Video, audio, control, and power inputs and outputs are available for implementations ranging from ENG-style run-and-gun to high-budget cinema productions.





High Frame-Rate Support


Slow down the action with high frame rates. Crop in on the sensor for 2K frame rates up to 240 fps. With the separately available Codex Digital raw recorder, frame rates of up to 120 fps can be captured using the entire sensor.


Internal ProRes Recording


The inclusion of Apple's ProRes codec inside the C700 enables shooters who require a quick turn-around to go direct-to-edit on many NLEs without any transcoding necessary. In 4K the 422 HQ flavor is implemented, and is supported up to 30 fps. In 2K mode, 10-bit 422, 10-bit 422HQ, and 12-bit 4444 can be used. High frame-rate recording is supported up to 180 fps using the 10-bit 422 flavor combined with the 2K center crop. All formats are conveniently recorded directly to the CFast 2.0 cards.


Multi-Format Recording


Using the SD card slot, low-data-rate proxy files can be recorded simultaneously with XF-AVC or ProRes on the CFast 2.0 cards. Proxy files are useful for easy editing, either on-the-go, or with a less powerful computer to be linked up with the master files later on. Alternatively, the proxy files can be given to a client for review.


Raw Recording


By removing the battery mount on the rear of the camera, and using the included bracket, a Codex Digital raw recorder can be installed using the included bracket. 12-bit DCI 4K raw files will be recorded onto separately available Codex Digital Capture Drives and will be instantly compatible with the robust Codex Digital workflow.




If using monitors compatible with the SMPTE ST 2084 standard, you can connect to the monitor via SDI or HDMI outputs for vibrant images with enhanced dynamic range visibility over standard monitoring solutions. The separately available EVF-V70 OLED viewfinder has HDR simulation via a LUT that resembles the SMPTE ST 2084 standard for HDR preview monitoring in-camera.


Surrounding Area


The viewfinder and monitoring outputs will display a translucent area around the image that is being recorded. Having that area lets the operator see what's happening outside the recorded frame.


ACES Support


The C700 supports ACESproxy version 1.0. Connect it to an input device that supports ACESproxy to deliver a standardized color space in images at the shooting and editing locations, which improves workflow efficiency.


Anamorphic De-Squeeze


Anamorphic lenses enable one-of-a-kind visual expression and are supported on the C700. When outputted to EVF or monitor outputs, the image is stretched to 2.39:1 after de-squeezing. Magnification factor can be set to OFF/2x/1.33x to match the anamorphic optics in use.
