For such a compact Cinema EOS camera, the Canon EOS C70 packs in a surprising amount of sophisticated technology. With its revolutionary RF lens mount, Electronic Image Stabilisation, advanced touchscreen control and 4K Super 35mm DGO sensor – the EOS C70 makes it easy to get the high-end look with a low-profile camera.
The EOS C70's compact and lightweight design provides solo shooters or small teams a fresh perspective to achieving cinematic results. When faced with low budgets and tight turnaround times, it's a camera that enables you to maintain a high level of production without compromise.
"The EOS C70 is a great response to the market conditions that we're now facing," says filmmaker and photographer Simeon Quarrie, who shoots a range of immersive storytelling across genres. "We need to deliver to clients, but to do so with smaller camera packages that need to be more flexible, and that in turn creates a number of opportunities."
Simeon was one of the first creatives to get hands-on with the EOS C70. He used the compact Cinema EOS camera alongside the equally compact Canon EOS R5 to shoot a short film about young British artist, Bryony Benge-Abbott. Here, he shares the top technical features that he thinks can make a real difference to small crews shooting on lower budgets.
