Filmmaking Reimagined

Reimagine filmmaking with the Canon EOS C70 – the smallest, lightest of any Canon pro cine camera to date. Combining the Cinema EOS System’s brilliant quality and performance with the EOS R series’ innovations and portability, the Canon EOS C70 is perfect for a wide range of filmmakers and projects. The camera’s portable size and weight make it ideal for single operators, providing freedom to shoot candid footage handheld or with a gimbal or drone. 

Professional Functionality 

Despite its compactness, the Canon EOS C70 is uncompromising in its functionality and performance. Along with 13 assignable buttons, the camera features a multifunctional hand grip and an independent ventilation system. A slimmer ND filter system providing up to 10 stops of neutral density offers superior creative control over exposure and depth of field, even when using fast lenses. Professional interfaces, ports and terminals (including HDMI and 2x mini XLR) provide fantastic versatility for applications ranging from news and documentaries to events, web content, and productions of any size. 

Breathtaking 4K Movies

Capture overwhelming 4K, UHD, 2K, and Full HD content with more than 16 stops of dynamic range. Combining a powerful DIGIC DV 7 processor with the highly acclaimed Canon EOS C300 Mark III’s Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) sensor, the EOS C70 from Canon delivers beautifully realistic colour reproduction, rich tonal gradation, clean shadow detail, and HDR – even in dramatically varied lighting conditions. Record next-level 4K 120p slow motion footage with the benefits of Dual Pixel CMOS AF and audio recording. For even faster frame rates switch to Super16 (2K crop) mode, which lets you shoot at 180p. Thanks to Dual UHS-II card slots, you can simultaneously record different formats, resolutions and bit depths (including 4K up to 120 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit in XF-AVC (All-I or Long-GOP), and MP4 in HEVC (H.265) or H.264).

Game-Changing Additions

The Canon EOS C70 introduces an array of valuable features, such as Auto ISO, to the Cinema EOS System. Along with Canon’s remarkable Dual Pixel AF, the Canon EOS C70 also boasts the Canon EOS R5’s groundbreaking EOS iTR AF X (Intelligent Tracking and Recognition) system that significantly enhances subject detection and tracking performance. With Focus Touch Control, precisely setting the focus area is as simple as touching the LCD screen. Vertical shooting mode makes it easy to capture high-production content for social media and digital signage.

Enhanced RF Lens Image Stabilisation & Functionality 

With the ever-growing range of compatible RF lenses comes not only stunning image quality, but also superior benefits for video production. Optical IS (image stabilisation) in RF lenses syncs with electronic ISO in the Canon EOS C70 body to deliver the incredible stabilising effects of Combination IS – even during handheld shooting. The RF mount also enables enhanced communication between camera and lens, making more features – like the option to display the object distance on the camera’s monitor – possible.

Exceptional Image Quality

Canon Super35 Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor

Canon's next-generation Super35 Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor offers a dynamic range of up to 16+ stops and includes Canon's exclusive Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus technology. The DGO Sensor generates high dynamic range and maintains low-noise levels by reading out each pixel with different gains. It combines images using pixels shot with a saturation-prioritizing amplifier for bright areas, and a lower-noise, noise-prioritizing amplifier for darker areas.

DIG!C DV7 Image Processor

Canon's DIG!C DV7 image processor takes the extensive raw information captured from the imaging sensor and processes it for output. The DiG!C engine is also the driving force behind features such as high frame rate recording, Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor, Dual Pixel Autofocus, HDR (PQ) output, Electronic Image Stabilization, and proxy recording.

Canon Log 2 and 3; PQ and HLG Recording

The EOS C70 supports both the full dynamic range Canon Log 2 and the more workflow-friendly Canon Log 3 gamma. Canon Log formats are designed to reproduce the entire tonal range of its CMOS image sensor. Turn to a log post-production workflow when you're seeking a higher dynamic range, improved highlights and shadow retention, and increased grading flexibility. Note that while Canon Log 2 offers the largest dynamic range and image detail, the most post-production flexibility, and the full dynamic range of the sensor, it typically will require more time spent in color correction.

For users seeking most of the benefits of a log workflow but with reduced turnaround times, choose the Canon Log 3 alternative with only a slightly reduced dynamic range of 14 stops.

Highly Adaptable Shooting Style

RF Lens Mount

A built-in RF lens mount lends the EOS C70 compatibility with Canon's expanding line of high-performance RF-mount lenses. With a short flange distance, the RF mount helps to noticeably reduce the camera body's depth, resulting in a more compact design.

EF Lens Compatibility with Optional Adapter

The optional EF-EOS R 0.71X EF to RF lens adapter converts a full-frame lens to Super35 format while boosting the aperture speed by an average of one stop. The EF adapter passes EF lens data through the RF mount, providing full Dual-Pixel Autofocus and metadata information for select lenses.

Additional compatible adapters include the EF-EOS R Canon Mount, Canon Control Ring Mount, Drop-In Circular Polarizer Filter Mount, and Drop-In Variable ND Filter Mount adapters.

Direct Touch Control

The EOS C70 features Direct Touch Control, enabling you to quickly and easily access your favorite menu settings through the fully rotatable LCD screen. Simply touch the 3.5" screen to start/stop recording, set ISO/Gain, color temperature, and iris, and to access other critical settings. Recording settings that are used to located in different menus can now be controlled with one hand, enabling on-the-spot changes even while operating the camera with one hand.

9 x 16 Vertical Capture

Use the 1/4"-20 tripod thread built into the grip to position the EOS C70 for vertical use when capturing images for digital signage or mobile device use. For easier viewing, the user interface can also be switched for vertical use.

Professional Design Features

Compact Design

The compact EOS C70 features a lightweight design with a built-in ergonomic grip. This smallest of the EOS bodies has two top shoe mounts and comes with a detachable handle and a mic holder.

Mini-XLR Audio Inputs

Two mini-XLR inputs with phantom power and manual control dials provide professional audio recording options for the EOS C70.

Built-In ND Filters

Designed specifically for the EOS C70's short flange distance, a thin motorized ND filter unit enables users to quickly select up to 10 stops of neutral density - an especially handy feature for ENG shooters or when shooting in quickly changing lighting conditions.

Timecode Input/Output

A BNC connector on the front of the EOS C70 enables users to input and output timecode, making synching on multicamera shoots easier.

Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus with Touch AF and Face Detection

Another innovative EOS C70 feature is the Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology, which uses each pixel on the CMOS sensor for both focus detection and image information, resulting in precision focusing and optimal image quality. The EOS C70 is also the first Cinema EOS camera to feature the EOS iTR AF X autofocus function featuring a head-detection algorithm developed using deep-learning technology. In Face Detection mode, this algorithm helps to improve distance measuring and tracking reliability, even when a subject turns their head to the side or back.

The EOS C70 also features the innovative Dual Pixel Focus Guide, which provides both front- and back-focus information to let users know where to set the focus during manual pulls.

EIS with Coordinated Control

To smooth out handheld shots, EOS C70 is the first Cinema EOS camera to offer enhanced image stabilization with coordinated control. When used with an RF-mount lens and the EOS C70's electronic IS, coordinated control optimizes hand-shake correction for even greater vibration reduction than that obtained with an EF-mount lens and electronic IS.

When working in the 2K format, the EOS C70's Super16 Digital IS improves performance by using the peripheral area around the center of the 4K sensor to stabilize the image.

Auto ISO/Gain Control

In another first for the Cinema EOS line, the EOS C70 can automatically adjust ISO and Gain Control using the DGO (dual gain output) to change gain smoothly, enabling users to concentrate on their framing instead of their aperture control when moving between locations with notable changes in light levels.

RC-V100 Support and LANC Compatible

The EOS C70 body's remote LANC terminal enables remote control using the optional Canon RC-V100 unit. The RC-V100 provides full access to key functions like start/stop, shutter/gain adjustments, focus/iris/zoom settings, display settings, white balance, black gamma, and more.

Advanced Workflow Optimization

Dual SD Card Slots / Multiple Recording Options

Dual SD card slots on the EOS C70 enable simultaneous recording in different formats including 4K/HD and XF-AVC/MP4 options.

High Frame Rate; 4K 120p and 2K Crop 180p

With its new chip design and DIG!C DV7 processor, the EOS C70 is capable of ultra-high frame rates. Capture video at frame rates up to 120 fps in 4K and up to 180 fps in the 2K crop mode. Dual Pixel AF is supported by the EOS C70 even at high frame rates, keeping your focus even when used on a gimbal or drone.
