25 Sep 2020 — Canon announces the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x that enables use of EF lenses on the RF mount EOS C70 Canon announced today the launch in Japan of the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x, a lens adapter for the EOS C70, the Cinema EOS system’s first RF mount camera model, which enables the camera to use EF series lenses. Employing a miniaturized optical system, the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x allows for video recording using the EOS C70 and EF series lenses  with an angle of view close to that of the mounted full-frame lens. This allows users to take full advantage of the wide selection of EF series lenses as well as expands the possibilities and flexibility of video production. The optical system of the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x reduces focal length by 0.71x, thus allowing the EOS C70—equipped with a Super-35mm DGO sensor—to record video using EF lenses originally designed for full-frame sensors with an angle of view similar to the original angle of the full-frame lenses. In addition, reducing the size of the optical system gains approximately one extra stop (one lens aperture “f-number”) of brightness, thus requiring lower ISO sensitivity. This enables high-image-quality recording with less noise, even in low-light environments such as indoors or at night. When equipped with EF lenses  via the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x, the EOS C70 digital cinema camera can achieve the same Dual Pixel CMOS AF autofocus functionality across the entire image, just like digital cinema cameras with an EF mount. In addition, the camera can also record and display data such as peripheral illumination correction, effectiveness of lateral chromatic aberration correction, F-number and focal length. More information is available at https://th.canon/en/business Excluding RF lenses, EF-M lenses and EF-S lenses. As of September 25, 2020, the following lenses are compatible: the EF16-35mm f/2.8L III USM (released in October 2016), the EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM (released in September 2012), the EF24-105mm f/4L IS II USM (released in November 2016). Canon plans to gradually expand the list of compatible lenses by providing free-of-charge firmware updates. EF lenses are still compatible with the camera, but Canon recommends that firmware updates be installed in order to effectively utilize functions which link the camera and lens.Read More
25 Sep 2020 — Canon announces EOS C70, the first Cinema EOS camera equipped with an RF mount Canon announced today the launch in Japan of the EOS C70, the newest addition to the Cinema EOS System. Utilizing Canon’s RF lens mount, the new camera achieves a compact and lightweight design  and supports 4K/120P high frame rate recording, enabling rich visual expression. The EOS C70 is the first Cinema EOS System camera to be equipped with an RF mount, which makes it compatible with any of the RF lenses from Canon’s EOS R System. When equipped with the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x (sold separately), the camera can also support the extensive lineup of lenses from the EF lens series  , opening up a myriad of possibilities for creative cinematography. Featuring a 4K Super 35mm CMOS DGO (Dual Gain Output) sensor, the EOS C70 can capture high-image-quality 4K video in 4:2:2 (10-bit) color that delivers rich gradation, even in environments with significantly high contrast which demands high dynamic range. Moreover, the camera is equipped with the DIGIC DV7 image-processing platform capable of high-speed processing, enabling users to record high-frame rate 4K/120P video to UHS-II standard SD cards. The EOS C70 is equipped with two SD card slots and supports a variety of recording modes such as simultaneous recording, relay recording and 4K/2K recording. The camera also inherits many professional features found in the existing Cinema EOS lines, including two mini XLRs, audio control dials, Timecode IN/OUT ,full HDMI terminal and the newly designed “Direct Touch Control” function that allows users to change recording settings quickly and directly from the camera’s touchscreen panel. In addition, the camera also incorporates Canon’s proprietary Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which offers even greater performance with the addition of our Intelligent Tracking and Recognition System. This advanced algorithm developed under deep learning technology works in conjunction with our Face Detection AF and further improves focus tracking, even when a subject is looking away from the camera. Combined with our new highly responsive touch screen, image focusing is now faster and even more intuitive. More information is available at https://th.canon/en/business The EOS C70 measures approximately 160.0 mm (W) x 130.2 mm (H) x 115.9 mm (D) and weighs approximately 1,170 g. Includes CN-E (EF cinema) lenses. Excludes RF lenses, EF-M lenses, EF-S lenses and some manual focus lenses.
