Canon announces its first full-frame cinema camera - say hello to the new C700 FF

Canon has officially announced their first Full Frame cinema camera - the C700 FF .  The camera , which sits at the top of Canon's cinema lineup ,  offers a 35mm (38.1 x 20.1mm) which can be used in either 35mm , Super 35 (APS-H) or Super 16 modes,making the camera more adaptable than the "Older" C700 model which comes with a Super35 sensor .

Set to capture 5.9K at 60fps in RAW , the camera is quite capable as it can even shoot 4K at 72fps with a slight crop in either ProRES or XF AVC , other recording options include 2K at 168fps .The sensor also features Canon's industry leading Dual Pixel AF if you plan to use the camera on autofocus or subject tracking. The sensor boasts 15 stops of dynamic range and it also supports Anamorphic de-squeezing.

The camera body , which comes with 2x CFast cards for recording , is also capable of directly recording to an external recorder such as the Canon CDX 36150 recorder as well . The EF lens mount , which can be changed to a PL mount if required , adds another layer of adaptability to the platform . Other features include IP live streaming, built in carousel ND filters (2,4,6 stop with 8,10 stop acquired with a combination of the carousel)and support for B4 broadcasting lenses for run and gun situations.

Pricing for the C700 starts at $33000 for the body and will ship in August 2018.
