Patent: Cooling a modular Cinema Camera

Canon News has uncovered a patent that discusses cooling modular cinema cameras. As we’ve previously reported, we expect a lot more modular Cinema EOS cameras in the future. The drawings in this patent look closer to the ME20F-SH than any current Cinema camera.

Heat is the enemy of progress in a lot of things, and cinema cameras are no different. When bitrates and resolution increase, and you want to shrink the form factor of the camera, heat becomes a big issue.

The images for this patent seem to show an EF mount camera.

We can cram more into smaller spaces, but the heat still has to be dissapated. A warm sensor has more noise than a cold one, heat affects IQ.
