At the heart of the camera is a Canon-developed CMOS image sensor having a total of 5952 (H) x 3140 (V) photosites with a digital cinema 17:9 aspect ratio.
Canon U.S.A. Inc., has launched EOS C700 FF, the company’s first full-frame cinema camera. The camera is being shown publicly for the first time at the Canon booth – C4325 at the NAB Show 2018 in Las Vegas from April 9-12.
At the heart of the camera is a Canon-developed CMOS image sensor having a total of 5952 (H) x 3140 (V) photosites with a digital cinema 17:9 aspect ratio, which gives it the same image circle size as the full frame EOS 5D camera series.
Available in both PL and EF Mount, the EOS C700 FF reportedly provides users with the same performance, operation and modular design as the EOS C700 (that was released in December 2016).
“Since the launch of Canon’s Cinema EOS line of products in November 2011, the goal was to one day develop a cinema camera worthy of being the ‘A’ camera on major Hollywood productions, and Canon met that goal with the introduction of the EOS C700,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, President and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “After listening to our customers and closely monitoring market trends, Canon set forth a new goal: to launch a full-frame cinema camera. With this introduction, we are very excited to see the C700 FF in the hands of industry professionals as they shoot their latest projects.”
Existing owners of Canon’s original EOS C700 cinema camera can have their Super 35mm sensor upgraded to the new Full-Frame sensor for a fee.
