Put Canon's mastery of image processing into a cinema-grade production-ready form factor and you get the EOS C700 GS PL Cinema Camera. This version of the C700 comes stocked with an ARRI PL lens mount, opening up a wealth of compatible vintage and modern cinema lens options. Furthermore, the 12-o'clock position of the PL mount is home to the Cooke /i lens interface, which passes lens information, such as aperture, focal length, and focus distance in real-time from compatible lenses for electronic display as well as metadata useful in VFX workflows. Beyond the lens mount is the first stop in the C700's imaging pipeline, the 4.2K global-shutter CMOS image sensor. The global shutter exposes every pixel on the sensor simultaneously. As opposed to rolling shutters found in most cinema cameras, this global shutter will be free of distortion that can be caused by fast moving objects passing through the scene or intense camera movements.
As Canon's flagship cinema camera, the EOS C700 features the choice of one of two new Super 35mm CMOS sensors. With three models to choose from, users can choose the best tool for their shooting requirements. The EOS C700 GS PL features 14 stops of dynamic range, up to 4K resolution and a Global Shutter.
The EOS C700 also includes a variety of 2K/HD recording options featuring frame rates up to 120 fps using the full frame of the sensor, and up to 240 fps in 2K crop mode.
The rugged magnesium body features rounded edges and semi-circular sides behind the lens mount that hint at the Canon Cinema design legacy. The EOS C700 can be equally comfortable handheld, shoulder-mounted, on a tripod head, gimbal rig or rigged to a car mount.
