A few things about this camera release have been VERY surprising in my opinion...

The release date was listed as "late November," but all the sites like BH said that it would ship "in December." There's been very little info about specifics of the release.

Secondly, lots of Canon ambassadors in Europe and Australia have had hands on with it and have posted videos. There hasn't been one video from a USA ambassador yet. Peter McKinnon showed it in one of his videos so he's been using it, but no trailer/teaser video has been posted.

I've already pre-ordered mine and would love to have an exact idea of when it ships.

There has been an embargo but that seems to only be true in certain countries.
That kind of makes sense because Canon Canada, Conon UK, Canon USA, etc. are the ones eho give the cameras to the ambassadors.

I wish Canon had made this camera with better materials. From the feedback I’m hearing, there seems to be a consensus that the C70 is made from subpar materials when compared to other Canon cameras in this price range. I’m hearing words like “cheap”, “plasticky” and “flimsy” used to describe it. Not exactly confidence inspiring at this price point.

The Sony FX6 will likely be constructed from magnesium alloy if history repeats itself. I really hate spending good money on cheaply made products. I just prefer the feel of a well constructed, quality product. I prefer it when I don’t need to baby a product... especially a professional product.

That the user manual has been posted is a good sign that the camera can't be far behind. I'll be visiting my local camera store later this week to place my order!

Now if I read the lens compatibility correctly (pages 203 and 204), the Canon EF600mm f/4L IS III with a Canon EF-EOS R Mount Adapter provides:
(1) Manual and Push Auto Iris control
(2) One-Shot AF, Continuous AF, Face AF, and Tracking

As long as the AF functions work with the lens, I am going to be very happy.

And...how can you (Canon Rumors) throw this in at the end of the article with no further info: "*Update* The Cinema EOS C70 has begun shipping." The link takes you to Adorama. Don't care for the click-bait.
