4. Mirrorless technology allowing more with less
Gone are the days of delivering a single file to be broadcast on a channel in an hour-long time slot. Today's broadcasting environment demands more from every piece of programming: each must work across TV, online streaming services and a range of diverse social platforms.
As technology develops, it has become possible to do more with less. Cameras such as the Canon EOS R5
now pack a full-frame 45MP CMOS sensor into a compact form factor, while Canon's smallest Cinema EOS camera, the EOS C70
, has the same revolutionary 4K Super 35mm DGO sensor as its much larger stablemate, the EOS C300 Mark III
, which offers 16+ stops of dynamic range.
"Canon's RF mirrorless cameras are a great way to capture image detail, because RF lenses are full-frame," says Jack. "The amount of information you can capture with a full-frame sensor is huge, which allows you to capture a lot more dynamic range with less noise. We wanted to bring RF technology to a video camera. The Canon EOS C70
gives people the freedom to work with the new RF glass, while the Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x
means you can continue to use EF glass with the camera. It also works as a speed booster, so you get an extra stop of light when using EF lenses."
