Canon’s new EOS C700 FF top-end digital cinema camera features a full-frame CMOS sensor designed to meet an extensive range of production needs. The camera’s full-frame sensor provides higher resolution and produces footage with shallower depth of field than Canon cameras with Super 35mm sized sensors, giving filmmakers a variety of creative options. Capable of 5.9K RAW recording up to 60 frames per second with the optional Codex CDX-36150 Recorder, the camera can also record ProRes and XF-AVC up to 4K to internal CFast™ cards. When oversampling 5.9K in 4K/UHD recording, moiré is suppressed and noise graininess improved, resulting in higher quality video compared to native 4K image capture. Both EF and PL mount models are available, with the EF mount option including Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology for precision focusing that can be crucial when recording in high resolution.

The EOS C700 is available in the following models:

  • EOS C700FF - EF mount
  • EOS C700FF - PL mount

5.9K Full-Frame CMOS Sensor

The EOS C700 FF offers a new full-frame 5.9K CMOS sensor (38.1 x 20.1mm), developed especially for this top-end cinema camera for use with a variety of lenses including full-frame. The sensor can record footage in a wide variety of aspect ratios including the standardized DCI 17:9. It also offers exceptionally low noise, broad-ranging tonality that exceed 15 stops of dynamic range and a wide color gamut supporting the ITU-R BT.2100 standard for outstanding effectiveness in HDR video production.

Oversampling 4K Processing

The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera uses a high-quality debayering algorithm when over sampling 5.9K in 4K, UHD, 2K and FHD recording to help suppress moiré and improve noise graininess, resulting in high-quality video.

Shallow Depth of Field

When shooting with the EOS C700 FF, the full-frame sensor allows for a shallower depth of field compared to cameras with smaller sensors. This larger range gives filmmakers a greater variety of creative options.

Feature Upgrade

The sensor on EOS C700 Super 35mm models can be replaced for a fee by Canon’s Factory Service Center to create a full-frame camera. The EOS C700 FF will also be offered in both EF and PL mount versions, and these lens mounts can also be swapped between EF Cinema Lock and PL. Whatever your needs, you’ll have the entire EOS C700 camera system and its proven reliability at your disposal.

User LUT Support

The EOS C700 FF supports User LUTs. This enables confirmation of output converted at pre-registered User LUTs as well as proxy recording.

ACES Support

The EOS C700 FF supports ACES 1.0 of the Academy Color Encoding System. Using Canon supplied IDTs, images captured on the EOS C700 FF can be imported directly into the ACES compatible systems.

Video output from the camera can be monitored by selecting the ACES Proxy. ACES Proxy allows the camera to send a monitor output that simulates ACES space to a compatible monitor or device. Modifications made using the proxy output can be saved and later brought into the editing or grading suite to help insure changes and color choices made on set are accurately reproduced in post.

Modular Design

The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera features a modular design which allows for a wide range of shooting applications, supporting a variety of workflows. The EOS C700 FF is a full-size cinema camera allowing for both traditional studio style and handheld configurations.

The camera body includes built-in cheese plates with numerous 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 threaded holes on the top and bottom to easily attach accessories. The top handle attaches in a variety of positions in order to achieve optimum balance.

Canon LOG 2 and 3

The EOS C700 FF supports Canon Log 2 and Canon Log 3 Gamma. Canon Log is designed to reproduce, in post-production, the entire tonal range that the CMOS image sensor is capable of. Log workflows provide the user with higher dynamic range, more highlight and shadow retention and more flexibility in grading.

While Canon Log 2 provides the most post-production flexibility and the full 15 stops of dynamic range of the sensor, it requires more post time. For users looking for most of the benefits of log workflow, but with shorter turnaround times, Canon Log 3 provides an alternative with only a slightly reduced dynamic range of 14 stops.


The EOS C700 FF Digital Cinema Camera features next generation Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DAF) Technology, allowing smooth focusing to be accomplished using Canon EF lenses with much higher speed and accuracy than was possible with previous technologies. Combined with phase-difference AF, smooth focusing is accomplished using Canon EF lenses with much higher speed and accuracy than previously possible. Autofocus modes include rapid One-touch AF, continuous AF within approximately 80% of the overall image area and Face Detection AF. The EOS C700 FF also offers the ability to set the AF tracking speed and response.

DAF also makes possible the Dual Pixel Focus Guide, which presents the user with a rectangle in the center of the EVF or monitor. The rectangle turns green when the subject is in focus, and gray when the subject is out of focus with arrows indicating which way to adjust the lens to regain focus. A focus pre-set feature allows separate predetermined focus points to be selected, and when the SET button is pushed, the lens will move focus from one mark to the other.

Triple DIGIC DV 5 Image Processors

“DIGIC” is Canon’s acronym for Digital Imaging Integrated Circuit. The EOS C700 FF uses three DIGIC DV 5 Image Processors to power the advanced features of the camera. DIGIC works in conjunction with other subsystems of the camera such as the lens and sensor to support various features and the image processing engine.

Internal ND Filters

The EOS C700 FF features in-camera ND filters to help save production time and help increase shooting versatility without the need to change filters. The camera uses an internal, all glass motorized ND unit. This combination of ND filters allows 2, 4 and 6 stops of ND in normal mode and 8 and 10 stops in extended mode.

Slow and Fast Motion Recording

In addition to the 5.9K RAW 60P, the EOS C700 FF also features 4K (crop) recording up to 72 frames per second and a 2K (crop) mode featuring up to 168 frames per second.

Anamorphic Lens Support

The EOS C700 FF supports anamorphic format lenses by electronically desqueezing the image in the viewfinder and on connected monitors for viewing. On the sensor users can take advantage of the camera’s full 4K resolution by using 1.3x squeeze anamorphic lenses that cover the full 16x9 area of the EOS C700 FF sensor, while popular 2x squeeze anamorphic lenses can also be used via a cropped area of the sensor.
