Canon has released a full frame version of its flagship Cinema EOS camera.

The C700 FF comes with a newly developed Canon full frame 38.1 mm x 20.1mm CMOS sensor. The camera is capable of recording up to 5.9K and also supports multi-format recording, shooting with EF, PL and anamorphic lenses and also supports Canon’s autofocus system, Dual Pixel CMOS AF.

The new sensor can switch between full frame, Super 35mm and Super 16mm, whilst recording in a range of recording formats including ProRes, XF-AVC (internally to CFast cards) and Canon’s uncompressed Cinema RAW.

Using the CODEX CDX-36150, the EOS C700 FF can record 5.9k 12/10-bit RAW, with 4K and 2K RAW 12-bit options available, as well as shooting ProRes 4K. For high frame rate shooting, the EOS C700 FF can shoot up to 60fps (5.9K), 72fps (4K crop) and at up to 168fps (2K crop). Using the 5.9K oversampling processing, the camera is also able to deliver a higher quality 4K and 2K image with reduced moiré and noise.

The camera is available in both EF lock & PL mount, compatible with Canon’s range of EF series and Cinema lenses. With the vertical 20.1 mm sensor size, the C700 FF also enables users to shoot with anamorphic lenses. Using the Canon EF lens system, users can benefit from the full sensor size whilst shooting, as well as Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF which ensures focusing by locking onto and tracking a moving subject.

The full frame C700 is compatible with existing Canon EOS C700 accessories including the EVF-V70 viewfinder, the MO-4E/ MO-4P B4 mount adapter and the OU-700 remote operation unit.

It will cost around £24.5k (camera body only) and will be available in August.
