Things have been relatively quiet in the Cinema EOS space from Canon, as they marketed the heck out of the Canon EOS R3 for the last many months.

There was an expectation that Canon would make a big splash at NAB 2021, but that show has been cancelled and won’t return until April 23-27, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This change may have an impact on when Canon announces new Cinema EOS gear.

C300S and C700DR would be class leading.

C500S would hold up pretty well against the V-Raptor

It is going to get interesting if these specs are accurate

Will there be a corresponding stills lens?

Wasn't there supposed to be some thing that slotted in below the C-70 coming that wasn't the R5C? It's good to see more BSI sensors. What does the S at the end of the name stand for?


Addicted to lenses.

Wonder if they will make a wide-angle cine lens for the C300S, given the crop sensor.
Do you mean anamorphic? If so, that would be a dream come true to have anamorphic Cine lenses from Canon, but to my knowledge they have never manufactured an anamorphic lens. Not sure why.

I would dearly love ProRes RAW for my C70, but those specs on the new models look amazing. Any idea on estimated release dates?

I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the C50, especially if it comes in a box camera format.

Canon Cinema EOS C700DR has my interest. But only if the body is right. The old body was big and ugly. The c300/500 body isn't pro in my mind. I want a Box like Alexa Mini or red. I want Raw + Prores + DNX in ALL frame rates unlike the c700. Canon I know you can do it!!​
