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.
With an optional Codex CDX-36150 attached, the EOS C700 can record uncompressed 10-bit or 12-bit 4K RAW up to 120 fps, 2K RAW up to 240 fps, or ProRes 4K up to 60 fps. Currently there is no other option beside the Codex. The future? We will have to wait and see. Here is the Codex: Canon CDX-36150 Codex Digital Raw Recorder for EOS C700 (Gold Mount) B&H # CACDX36150AB. Be aware that the drive it needs can cost as much as the recorder. Canon CDX-37020 Codex Capture Drive 2.0 for CDX-36150 Digital Raw Recorder (2TB) B&H # CACDX37020.
