    Ho Chi Minh City, 25 September 2020 - Canon announced today the launch of the EOS C70, the newest addition to the Cinema EOS System. Utilizing Canon’s RF lens mount, the new camera achieves a compact and lightweight design[1] and supports 4K/120P high frame rate recording, enabling rich visual expression.[1] The EOS C70 measures approximately 160.0 mm (W) x 130.2 mm (H) x 115.9 mm (D) and weighs approximately 1,170 g.

    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. When equipped with the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x (sold separately), the camera can also support the extensive lineup of lenses from the EF lens series[1], opening up a myriad of possibilities for creative cinematography.[1] Includes CN-E (EF cinema) lenses. Excludes RF lenses, EF-M lenses, EF-S lenses and some manual focus lenses.

    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 with significantly high contrast which demands 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.             

    The EOS C70 is equipped with two SD card slots and supports a variety of recording modes such as simultaneous recording, relay recording and 4K/2K recording.  The camera also inherits many professional features found in the existing Cinema EOS lines, including two mini XLRs, audio control dials, Timecode IN/OUT ,full HDMI terminal and the newly designed “Direct Touch Control” function that allows users to change recording settings quickly and directly from the camera’s touchscreen panel. 

    In addition, the camera also incorporates Canon’s proprietary Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which offers even greater performance with the addition of our Intelligent Tracking and Recognition System. This advanced algorithm developed under deep learning technology works in conjunction with our Face Detection AF and further improves focus tracking, even when a subject is looking away from the camera. Combined with our new highly responsive touch screen, image focusing is now faster and even more intuitive.
