As previously reported, Canon will be announcing a Cinema EOS camera with an RF mount, likely in late August ahead of when IBC is usually held.

Canon RF mount Cinema EOS camera rumored Specifications:

  • Same Super35 sensor as the Canon Cinema EOS C200
  • Internal ND filters (mechanical) up to 6 stops
  • 2x Mini XLR inputs
  • Full-size HDMI
  • 4K 4:2:2 10bit in ALL-I and IPB up to 120p
  • 1x CFexpress Type B Slot
  • 2x SD UHS-II slots
  • External RAW recording options up to 4K 120P
  • 2x LP-E6NH batteries
  • Camera size smaller than the EOS-1D X Mark III
  • Price: $4499 USD

Canon will also announce the previously rumored RF mount adapters.

  • PL to RF with Cooke/i
  • EF to RF focal length reducer
  • EF cinema lock to RF.

The first two adapters have a new design (rumored) and will not be compatible with current RF cameras. I'm not sure about the EF cinema lock to RF adapter and its compatibility.

I don't know the name of the camera at this time, and I'm not 100% sure on the form factor.

  1. This honestly sounds like a very workable, tangible camera. Surprised to hear it's smaller even than the 1DX, I'm guessing a similar build to the XC-15?
    I was thinking the same thing however the XC-15 isn't exactly smaller than a 1Dx and its not within the EOS Cine line. C100R maybe?
  2. I'm sure this camera will be really good, but the R5 whet my appetite, I was hoping for an 8k RF cinema cam.
    Can I ask what the use case was for 8K?
  3. YEAH BABY!!! YEAH!!!!

    i read the spec list again, and wet my pants again. I feel SO happy now that i spent the past 3 months selling all my E-Mount and M-mount cameras and lenses and switched fully to RF/EF.
  4. Love the camera, also makes more sense why R5 is programmed to be “overheating” when cool to the touch.

    Makes me feel more comfortable buying more RF glass, still not a huge fan of focus by wire though.
