The C700 is a versatile shoulder-mounted camera with full 4K capability and choice of PL or EF mount.  It records 4K images to internal CFAST 2 cards and will capture up to 15 stops of dynamic range with Canon 2 log internally as well for full HDR support.  (It is also compatible with original Canon log, Canon Log 2 or Canon Log 3 if preferred).

This version incorporates a Full Frame Sensor.

It has some really nice features, such as 10 stops of built-in ND, up to 240fps record capability and separate 3″ LCD control display.

The CODEX Recorder offering full RAW and Prores XQ record capability is planned to be available soon.

We are also including the ARRI Pro Set to allow for standard film accessories to be fitted. The ergonomic grip design for easy handling and operability, making it ideal for single shooter operation.
