Can we agree to ban the first person that says "No IBIS?" "It's DOA", "Canon cripple hammer" ? Or any combination of those, please? Before commenting please remember that no C-Line cameras have IBIS (that I know of).

Lol. I think what the desire for is a bridge between R and Cinema — a non-weather-sealed, video-first hybrid camera versus the weather-sealed, stills-first hybrid R5/6.

No IBIS - no overheating. I salute that!
While I would agree IBIS in its current implementation has no place on a cinema camera, both Sony and Panasonic seemed to have figured out how to add it in mirrorless bodies without overheating.

IBIS is not the culprit for overheating in the R5. It's the body design. They prioritized weather sealing and user protection from long term low temperature burns as well as compact design. The C70 looks like it has vents and space to deal with heat regardless if it had IBIS or not.

Where is the monitor?!

You can’t pull focus on a flippy screen...
Regardless if it has a fixed or a flip out monitor, you’re probably going to need an external monitor for good focus pulling. I’m still not a fan of the form factor but I’m going to be putting it on a handheld/shoulder rig most of the time. Looks like there’s a hinge by the fan, hopefully that’s for audio controls.

Isnt lens based stabilization far superior to IBIS... I dont see an issue because the RF lenses have it. What am I missing?

If this camera is below 3,000$ it is an insta buy for me. If it is 4,000$ I gotta sell a few things, more than that? Well, that would be a different story.

Seriously waiting on the release of this as I will be making some serious changes if that is the case. Who wants to buy a camera? LOL!

Place your bets now on what EOSHD will find has been crippled on this camera..... Why no 24bit? Why no 3600 fps? Why only 4K and not 24K? Why does it have big vents in it that spiders can crawl in to?

I'm really looking forward to the lunacy that comes streaking from that outhouse fire.

Okay, this looks pretty great, and may keep me from buying a Sony A7SIII. I'm seriously considering the Sony because its specs are fantastic, but migrating away from Canon to an entirely different lens mount is keeping me from pulling the trigger.
I pulled the trigger on the A7S3 launch day. But I’m not migrating away. I’ll simply add the Sony. I also plan on getting the Canon... unless there is something stupid that ruins the C70? I had the R5 and shoot enough video that the overheating problems made the shooting experience worrisome. And this was after I ungraded to version 1.1.1. Hopefully this C70 is the baby C300Mk3 that we all hope for. I have a substantial collection of RF glass so this would be a no brainer for me.

Early rumors where $6k... of course the less the better. But this is Canon, so don’t be surprised if the initial rumors are closer to the actual price.

I still do not understand why Canon cannot take the R5 and put the internals inside a body like this which is larger to give better cooling options and audio inputs. I would pay the same like a 1 series body for it. Hell, I would go as high as $10k!

We all know the answer. "Reasons!" and most have to do with protecting the cinema line.

I just hate that this is the slow introduction of APS-C to the RF mount (okay... super 35 but you get my point).

I just hope that the C70 will have at least eye detect. I may not be shooting "cinema" but I shoot video and it would be worth it.

Sony is shriking down the FX9 to the FX6 while Canon is doing pretty much the same with C300 Mark III compared to the EOS C70 (plus catching up with the mirrorless lens mount)
These two will be very closely priced as well.

Interesting. As someone who owns the C300 MIII, a smaller 2nd body with that sensor is of interest for 2nd cam/gimbal shots. That DGO sensor is really fantastic and this will hopeful open it to the masses with a lower price point.

There is no legitimate excuse for not having IAF in all the cinema cameras. No disrespect to CR guy but budgets out side of Holywood aren't what they used to be and crews are getting smaller. ( Covid will decimate Holywood budgets ass well) If IBIS allows you to skip futzing with the gimbal then you can shoot a lot more in a day. For certain kinds of shooting IAF is even better than a dedicated focus puller. I didn't say all I said certain kinds.

So with the C50 and C70 are we going to see a C30 or C90? The Cinema EF Series is the C100, C200, C300, C500, and C700. Are we assuming with the C50 and C70 that these are the RF equivalents of the EF cameras? Meaning that the C70 will be the top of the line and C50? Very confusing what the naming of the scheme of the cinema line RF series would be.

I’m telling you, this camera is going to be a massive home-run if, and only if, it doesn’t use H.265 as it’s main codec. I know the R5 does, but the C300 Mark III uses the wonderful, broadcast friendly, easily editable codec. Here’s hoping!!!
