C700 title v3a

Finally Canon have brought out a cinema camera to match or better Sonys F55 in specs alone but at £28K. Glad to see they have moved away from the squat dumpy look to a more aesthetic “ARRI” look.

Canon badly need sales and a price and spec. contender with the Sony FS7… in my opinion the new C700 is for rental houses only at this price.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
