Canon’s rival to the GH5 leaks

By Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

Comment on this article at the EOSHD Forum

Comment on the forum The drawing above shows what Canon’s rival to the GH5 will look like. It is based on the form factor they introduced with the XC10 but features several ergonomic improvements and an interchangeable lens mount. The lens mount appears to support EF lenses and has a locking mechanism. However there seems to be even more going on with the lens mount than meets the eye. The patent document is not an easy read, but it describes a new mirrorless camera from Canon aimed at video users. The camera has a mount which takes a special lens …

Canon announces C700 FF cinema camera: now with full frame

Canon has announced the newest member of its Cinema EOS camera family, the EOS C700 FF. As the name implies, it’s an updated version of Canon’s C700 cinema camera that includes a full frame sensor in place of a Super 35 sensor.

On most cameras we generally think of ‘full frame’ as representing a 24x36mm frame with a 3:2 aspect ratio, but the C700 FF defines this a bit differently. The Canon-developed sensor used in the camera has a native resolution of 5952 x 3140 pixels, providing a 17:9 cinema-friendly aspect ratio, and has an imaging area of 38.1×20.1mm in size.

While that’s a bit wider and shorter than a standard full frame sensor, it requires the same image circle size as a full frame DSLR,* meaning the C700 FF can use Canon’s entire line of EF-mount lenses at their standard focal lengths. For maximum flexibility, the C700 FF can be ordered with either EF or PL-mount.

Canon claims the new sensor exceeds 15 stops of dynamic range when shooting with either the Canon Log2 gamma curve or in Raw

With 5.9K resolution, the camera is able to record oversampled 4K video internally, which should provide superior results to a native 4K sensor. Users can choose between two codecs to capture footage internally: Canon’s own XF-AVC or Apple ProRes. Additionally, the C700 FF can record Raw video when using an optional Codex recorder mounted to the back of the camera, recording at up to 5.9K/60p in Raw.

In addition to impressive video resolution, Canon claims the new sensor exceeds 15 stops of dynamic range when shooting with either the Canon Log2 gamma curve or in Raw, which should make it an effective tool for producing HDR video content.

The EOS C700 FF has an estimated retail price of $33,000, and will be available in both EF → continue…
