C700, The New Generation of Cinema Camera
The C700 is designed to be a flexible “A” camera for episodic TV and Hollywood films, but it is also very suitable for use as a documentary camera.
“Working with the C700 though, this was the first time I felt with a Canon camera, ‘Wow, I could go out and feel really comfortable shooting a feature film with it.’ Not only because of what it is capable of sensor-wise, but also because of the design and ergonomics. I think the way the camera is laid out is perfect for not only the cinematographer but also for the camera operator and first assistant. The C700 is designed to really accommodate a feature film workflow.”
