Canon’s first RF-mount cinema camera is getting an update that adds functionality and improves performance.
HDMI View Assist
Adds the View Assist feature, which allows for a WideDR/BT.709 LUT to be displayed over HDMI when shooting in a Canon Log gamma.
Improved AF Feature
This update adds a “Whole area” option to the AF Frame size, increasing the AF area to 80% of the frame. When “Whole Area” is selected, the AF switches to “Tracking” by a single touch operation and switches to “Face Detection” when a face is touched.
When Using the EF-EOS R 0.71x adapter, the Possible AF Range Frame is now only momentarily displayed when selecting the AF Frame position.
Expanded EF Lens Support When Using the EF-EOS R 0.71x Adapter
adds the following lenses, fully compatible with DPAF, optical corrections, and metadata transmission:
- EF16-35mm F2.8L II USM
- EF16-35mm F4L IS USM
- EF24-105mm F4L IS USM
- EF70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM
- EF70-200mm F2.8L IS III USM
- EF70-200mm F4L IS USM
- EF70-200mm F4L IS II USM
Firmware for the C70 is expected to be available for download on June 30, 2021.
