New Canon EOS C70 Firmware Update Answers The Top Demands of Professional End-Users

New Canon EOS C70 Firmware Update Answers The Top Demands of Professional End-Users

By Canon Rumors | January 19, 2022 | Cinema EOS News

MELVILLE, NY, January 19, 2022 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced a firmware update for the EOS C70 4K Digital Cinema Camera that implements sought after features such as Cinema RAW Light internal recording as well as Frame and Interval recording modes. The added features allow the EOS C70 to be better paired with the EOS C500 Mark II and EOS C300 Mark III workflows, and come as a direct result of end-user feedback from professionals.

Cinema RAW Light Internal Recording
The addition of Cinema RAW Light internal recording to the EOS C70 camera further enhances the recording capabilities of what’s already a powerful digital imaging machine. This compact cinema camera can now capture 12-bit Cinema RAW Light internally to compatible SD cards. Cinema RAW Light captures the widest dynamic range from the Dual Gain Output sensor (16+ stops total) and allows the most flexibility to grade captured content. Three quality settings of Cinema RAW Light will make their way into the EOS C70 via the firmware update. The settings are: RAW HQ (high quality), RAW ST (standard quality), and RAW LT (light recording). All three modes are 12-bit regardless of frame rate. Lastly, Cinema RAW Light is compatible with Proxy and Double-Slot recording.

Frame and Interval Recording Modes
The addition of Frame and Interval Recording modes is a direct result of user feedback, and adds even more recording flexibility to the EOS C70 camera by allowing easy creation of stop motion and time-lapse sequences when recording in the XF-AVC and MP4 formats. Frame recording is for stop motion capture, and every press of the record button captures a user-determined number of frames. Interval Recording sets the interval and number of frames to be captured for time-lapse sequences. Both recording modes help operators further tell their story in a more creative and inspiring form and are easy to use.

The firmware update will be available for download in March 2022*. For more information, please visit,

Coming firmware for Canon Cinema EOS C70 to have internal 12-bit Cinema RAW Light

Coming firmware for Canon Cinema EOS C70 to have internal 12-bit Cinema RAW Light

By Canon Rumors | January 14, 2022 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

Canon will be officially announcing new firmware for the Canon Cinema EOS C70 next week. The new firmware will be available in March of 2022.

I do not have all of the information about this new firmware, but this should make a lot of C70 shooters quite happy.

About the coming firmware for the Canon Cinema EOS C70


862981BE FA13 45D1 9496 3404FD37B88C 473x1024 - Coming firmware for Canon Cinema EOS C70 to have internal 12-bit Cinema RAW Light

The EOS C70 now offers users the ability to capture Cinema RAW Light internally to SD cards. RAW provides you with greater image quality and flexibility in post-production.

On top of the existing 10-bit XF-AVC currently found in the EOS C70, 12-bit Cinema RAW Light LT features data rates up to 645Mbps, offering much more manageable/efficient file sizes to streamline your workflow while retaining the same benefits of RAW. Simultaneous recording of Cinema RAW Light and XF-AVC Proxies is also supported.

More than just the Canon EOS R5C will be announced on January 19, 2022

More than just the Canon EOS R5C will be announced on January 19, 2022

By Canon Rumors | January 13, 2022 | Canon Cinema EOS Rumors

*Update* I have had conflicting information about the announcements next week. While all of this information below is correct, it may not all happen on January 19, 2022. More to come…

I love announcement week! I have now confirmed more Cinema EOS goodies that we can look forward to.

Canon EOS R5C

The Canon EOS R5C! Canon’s active cooling video-focused version of the EOS R5. You can check the rumored specifications here.

Canon Cinema EOS C70 Firmware

Canon will announce new firmware for the Canon Cinema EOS C70. The new firmware will add RAW. I don’t know if it’s external or internal.

New Cinema Lenses!

Canon will announce new compact cinema zoom lenses. I think it’s safe to assume that the RF mount will be offered.

New 8K Options?

The Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark III and Canon Cinema EOS C500 Mark II will get new modules. It’s been rumored for quite some time that we’d see 8K versions of these cameras. I haven’t confirmed what the “modules” are, but I think Canon is about to go all-in on 8K.

The official announcements are scheduled for January 19, 2022, at 7 AM EST.

This is how you downgrade the firmware on a Canon camera

By Canon Rumors | January 12, 2022 | Canon EOS R

There are rumors going around that people are having autofocus issues with firmware 1.5.0 and the Canon EOS R5. This isn’t something that I have experienced, nor I have received any communication about issues. Sometimes I’m the first line of tech support for whatever reason.

KH Cams on YouTube has posted a video showing you how to downgrade the firmware on the Canon EOS R6. This will also work with the Canon EOS R5. It’s claimed that it’ll work on any Canon dual card slot camera, but I have not and likely never will test this out.

Canon firmware downgrade instructions:

  1. Put firmware v1.5.0 on one SD card and v1.4.0 on another.
  2. Insert the SD card with 1.5.0 into the camera
  3. Go to the firmware update in the menu
  4. Press okay on the update, and as quickly as possible open the battery door on the camera or battery grip
  5. Insert the SD (Or CFExpress) card with firmware 1.4.0
  6. Close the battery door to turn the camera back on
  7. The camera will automatically start ‘updating’ from 1.5.0 to 1.4.0″
Canon UK confirms that the Canon EOS R5C will be announced next week

Canon UK confirms that the Canon EOS R5C will be announced next week

By Canon Rumors | January 12, 2022 | Canon EOS Rumors

The Canon EOS R5C has been long-rumored around these parts, and it will finally be officially announced on January 19, 2022.

Yesterday, Canon began teasing next week’s announcement. Canon News reports that the internet did what the internet does and discovered that Canon UK confirmed the Canon EOS R5C announcement when the promo image they used was named “EOS_R5C_Teaser-01-ProNews“, it has since been changed.

Canon EOS R5C Specifications (Rumored)

  • 45mp full-frame sensor (Same as the EOS R5)
  • IBIS
  • Canon Log 3
  • Canon Log 2 is still being discussed
  • No Internal NDs
  • Unlimited 8K30P recording in Cinema RAW Light. XF-AVC and MP4
  • Timecode in/out
  • The same multipurpose hot shoe as the EOS R3. Which will work with accessories such as the Tascam XLR module.
  • Active cooling
  • 3/8″ or 1/4″ mounting point on the EVF for a top handle that won’t interfere with the hot shoe.
  • Full-size HDMI Port
  • The LCD has been moved further back to accommodate the cooling fan. So this likely means that it won’t recess into the body like the Canon EOS R5.
