Canon C700

This camera has it all, and a price to match. $30,000, so I've heard.

Re: Canon C700

At NAB, Geoff Boyle said he was going to shoot a film early 2017 that he was going to use the C300 Mark II on and rely heavily on the DPAF. If I were Canon, I would get this camera in his hands ASAP.

Re: Canon C700

No more NDA......this camera has got everything. It feels like an Alexa, built like one, but not as heavy...really good balance. Both myself and our rental manager Toby Fulp are soo happy that what we have been waiting for and knew Canon could build, was in our hands!

I am going to have to respectfully disagree, Jim. I have poured over all the released photos so far, and I have yet to see a toaster oven anywhere on this thing.

Re: Canon C700

Nice vid. I had previously missed that there are (at least) two versions, one with rolling shutter and the other global.

Re: Canon C700

In talking with Canon, they did say they were looking at this camera to be around for a while (3-5 years+). The C700 has a somewhat open architecture that will allow upgrades down the road. For example, if you have the PL version and you want to upgrade to the PL Global Shutter, you can do that (for a charge). Now, based on the fact that there is very little, if not, no rolling shutter in the C300 MK II because of 2 Digic 5 "engines" in the camera, I expect it will be even better with 3 Digic 5 "engines" in the C700. So, if down the road Canon decides to put in say, a 8K chip (or anamorphic, etc), the open architecture will allow it. Jon Fauer ASC mentions the same idea on Film & Digital Times:

Canon is now shooting the C700 demo piece with a big name DP (and a few others) and, knowing where they are shooting, I'm really looking forward to seeing the results.....maybe by the end of the month!...my guess.

Re: Canon C700

There are a couple of very (very) brief videos showing a tiny bit of Russell Carpenter ASC and Tyler Stableford working with the C700 somewhere out west....

I see it's 28000 now at b&h, seeing that the c500 had a similar launchprice and 4 years later still is sold "new" for 7000 I wonder if Canon will devaluate the c700 in the same way.
