We have been told that Canon will be bringing a Cinema EOS version of the Canon EOS R7. While this is pretty cool news, don't expect the Canon EOS R7 C to be announced in 2022.
The Canon EOS R7 C will record 7K60P in Cinema RAW Light and will reportedly have the same codec options as other Cinema EOS cameras, including the Canon EOS R5 C.
We suspect that such a camera will be announced later in 2023.
There will be more to come on this camera and other upcoming Cinema EOS products tomorrow.
The more the merrier I guess.
APS-C is close to Super35 and a preferred style/look for many. Should closer match a lot of the current cinema lineup. Some also want the added reach, but doubt that matters for most here.
This would be a pretty great plus for the R7C, too, to give flexibility.
Plenty of production companies once used the 7D and 7D Mark II for disposable cameras in action shots. Granted, the improvements to action cameras made those shots easier, but if you need a big sensor look, "cheap" 1.6x cameras are far more cost effective to risk destroying than an R5C or a C70.
However, I'm not a fan of the lens lineup for the APS-C line. If they start pushing out the 15-85mm and a 50mm f/1.4... then this camera seems far more interesting.
Do agree the RF APS-C lens lineup is a bit blah at the moment, but also think that somewhat trickles over to the entire RF "budget" lineup too. The F6.3, F7.1 & F8 lenses are just not great options with video. Great range with RF-S 18-150mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM, but most end up stopping down with variable aperture, so shooting at F6.3 max like this is not ideal. Cheapest RF native that really is useable for video is probably the $1300 RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM.
