New Firmware Update Brings Enhanced Efficiency to the Canon C70


Heads up, Canon EOS C70 Cinema Camera users! With the new C70 Winter Firmware Update, you’ll now be able to add the latest codec, eye and face detection, audio metering, and streaming, gamma, lens servo, and LUT support options to your cine-style capture.

Efficient intra-frame compression choices now include 4K60p XF-AVC capture and new 24p 240 Mb/s, 30p 300 Mb/s, and 60p 600 Mb/s bitrates. And with a 64GB card, you can now record up to 35 minutes at 24p and up to 14 minutes at 60p.

Lens control updates include full communications with the Cine-Servo 15-120mm EF lens, including DPAF (dual-pixel AF) and DP Focus Guide Support for the Flex Zoom 45-135mm EF Lens with DP Focus Guide.

Livestreamers haven’t been neglected—support for Canon’s XC Protocol enables IP-based remote control with the optional RC-IP100 controller.

Imaging tools have been updated with enhanced mid-range contrast and an emphasis on accurate skin tones using Canon 709 Custom Picture Profile, gamma and CMT 709 viewing LUT options. Off-speed shooters will appreciate tracking and eye and face detection in Slow/Fast motion modes at speeds from 24-120p, and last, but not least, 4-channel audio levels can now be viewed onscreen to help you obtain optimal sound quality.
