Canon issues a service notice for the Canon XF605, Canon Cinema EOS C70 & Canon EOS R5C

Google Translated notice from Canon Japan

To customers using the continuous recording function for professional video cameras and digital cinema cameras

Thank you for using Canon products.

We have found that the following phenomenon rarely occurs in the professional video camera “XF605” under specific usage conditions. We have also confirmed the possibility of this phenomenon occurring in the EOS C70 and EOS R5C digital cinema cameras equipped with the same functions. There have been no reports of this phenomenon occurring with the EOS C70 and EOS R5C.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and concern caused to customers using this product. In the future, we will continue to implement thorough quality control so that our customers can use our products with peace of mind. Thank you for your understanding.

Phenomenon

Repeatedly starting and stopping normal recording while the constant recording function is set may occasionally cause the camera to become inoperable. In addition, it has been confirmed that phenomena such as “FAN error” display and media access lamp blinking may occur at the same time as the operation becomes impossible.

* This phenomenon does not occur if the constant recording function is not set.

The constant recording function is a function that can be set only when MP4 is selected as the main recording setting, and constantly records images on one SD card without interlocking the REC switch.

Products

Professional video camera “XF605”: Products whose serial number has a “2” or earlier in the seventh digit from the left

* The digital cinema cameras “EOS C70” and “EOS R5C” that may cause this phenomenon are as follows.

EOS C70”: Products with firmware version 1.0.3.1 or earlier (Download the fix)

EOS R5C”: Products with firmware version 1.0.1.1 or earlier

About correspondence

We apologize for the inconvenience, but please download the latest XF605 firmware and update it.

In addition, we are preparing to release firmware that corrects the above phenomenon for the two models of digital cinema cameras.

The Canon EOS R5 C has been rejected for Netflix Certification

The Canon EOS R5 C has been rejected for Netflix Certification

By Canon Rumors | September 13, 2022 | Cinema EOS News

Netflix has rejected the Canon EOS R5C for production certification, and we’re told that Canon doesn’t have any intention to address the issue like Sony did with the FX3.

Neither Netflix or Canon has spoken directly on why the camera was denied, but the only thing we and others can think of is that the camera lacks Canon Log-2. There may be some other image quality reason that we don’t know about. The Canon EOS R5C seems to have every other feature required by Netflix for certification.

The Canon EOS R5 C can still be used for productions, but footage from the camera cannot make up more than 10% of the total runtime of the production.

We’d love to hear more on this topic.
