Canon has announced the new EOS R5 C, a compact, hybrid camera that is ideal for journalists, event photographers, and drone users who routinely capture stills and video over the course of their workday. This RF-mount mirrorless camera combines the full-frame 45 MP resolution and speed of EOS R5 stills capture with up to 8K60, 12-bit Cinema RAW Light internal video capture, HDMI raw output, Canon Log 3, HLG and PQ HDR, unlimited recording length, and multiple video features of the EOS Cinema line. Canon C70 users will also be glad to explore some new firmware updates for that Cinema line camera. Canon EOS R5 C Ready for Anything: Melding Canon C70 and R5 Features The full-frame R5 C camera features discrete menu options for still and video capture that are selected with the twist of a dial, enabling you to access the abilities of both types of capture with the use (and weight) of just one body. In addition to providing a “ready for anything” melding of existing Canon C70 and Canon EOS R5 features, the R5 C adds features like raw output via HDMI, up to 8K60 Cinema RAW Light and 4K120 full-frame recording, support for Canon Log 3 and HLG/PQ HDR, a recording time that is limited only by your media and power, a timecode port, waveform monitors, Dual Pixel CMOS AF with eye detection, active cooling, a higher-power LP-E6NH battery, and a multi-function shoe for XLR audio adapters. The total of 13 user-assignable buttons allows for customizing the controls just the way you like. Functions carried over from the C70 and R5 include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, an electronic RF lens mount, both CFexpress and SD card slots, a familiar button layout, and DaVinci Resolve and Canon app compatibility for a smooth post-production workflow.

The R5 C works with R5 accessories such as the battery and WFT (wireless file transfer) grips, so, if you upgrade, you can continue to use those existing items, and it incorporates a multi-function shoe for compatible accessories. Use the R5 C’s dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for image file transfers while you work. Improved Autofocus Functions Autofocus options are available to suit just about any type of action and include Dual-Pixel CMOS AF II for freezing split-second movements, 1,053 AF zones used for Eye, Face, and Head Detection AF, Animal Detection AF for grabbing wildlife or furry friends, and Vehicle Detection for nailing those automobile product shots. You can select the size of the active AF area ranging from a single point to the whole AF area. You can even adjust the user-selected area using the 8-way controller located on the back of the camera. Basically, the R5 C offers the same still-image AF method choices as the EOS R5 model. ISO Range of 100-51200 An ISO range of 100-51200 that expands to 50-102400 ensures that you have the sensitivity to capture optimal still photos in any kind of lighting. High-Speed Continuous Capture Whether you’re documenting the latest fashions, wildlife movements, or emotional moments, you can capture the most detailed action with continuous photo shooting rates of up to 12 fps using the R5 C’s mechanical shutter and up to 20 fps with the silent electronic shutter. Compact, Lightweight Body Compact and lightweight like the EOS R5, the R5 C is designed for comfortable handheld use. It also sports an optically extended EVF for eye-level viewing, and it shares the R5’s ergonomic grip design. An articulated, 3.2" LCD touchscreen makes it easy to keep an eye on your frame whether you’re shooting stills or video. Freeze the fastest action Cinema Line Video Imaging Cine camera users will see the familiar Cinema EOS menu and overlays when using the R5 C in video mode, making it easier to switch between a Cinema EOS camera like the C70, C300 Mk II, or C700 and an R5 C being used as a “B” camera. Resolution and Frame Rates This is the first Cinema EOS camera with the ability to record 8K video internally at rates up to 8K60 using Canon‘s Cinema RAW Light codec or in 8K30 in MP4 for quicker uploading. The incredibly detailed 8K (8192 x 4320) resolution can be used natively or used for 4K cropping from within the frame. The R5 C’s ability to record two resolutions simultaneously means you can capture in Cinema RAW Light for your final version while capturing 4K, HD, or a proxy file for speedier, less storage-intensive editing. Note that one quirk of the R5 C is that some of the top frame rates require the use of a power supply and are not attainable under battery power. SENSOR MODE RECORDING FORMAT RESOLUTION TOP FPS POWER SUPPLY TOP FPS/BATTERY FULL FRAME Cinema RAW Light MP4 (HEVC) XF-AVC 8K 8K 4K/2K/HD 60p 30p 120p 30p 30p 120p SUPER 35 Cinema RAW Light XF-AVC/MP4 XF-AVC/MP4 5.9K 4K/2K/HD 2K/HD 60p 60p 120p 30p 60p 120p SUPER 16 Cinema RAW Light XF-AVC/MP4 3K 2K/HD 120p 120p 60p 120p Cinema RAW Standard is available in a variety of modes at rates of up to Full Frame 8K30, Super 35 6K60, and Super 16 at 3K60. Cinema RAW HQ is not available in Full Frame but can be captured at rates of up to Super 35 6K30 and Super 16 3K60. 8K Cinema RAW Light External Output Experienced video shooters will appreciate the R5 C’s ability to output lengthy recordings to pro monitor/recorders like the Atomos NINJA V+ at rates up to 8K Cinema RAW Light or in Apple ProRes RAW up to 8K 30p while simultaneously capturing proxy files via the camera’s SD card slots. HDR Imaging The R5 C offers HDR (High Dynamic Range) in HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) in PQ (Perceptual Quantization)―producing richly detailed, lifelike footage even in 8K. Canon Log 3 compatibility streamlines simple grading when pairing the R5 C with other Cinema EOS models on multicamera shoots. Sensor Modes Content is produced for a wide variety of cinema-style forms, and the R5 C has you covered with the ability to select from full-frame, Super35, and Super16 modes. High-frame-rate options include up to DCI 4K120 in 4:2:2 10-bit without sensor cropping and the ability to use autofocus and record audio files even at high frame rates. Enhanced Image Stabilization Run-and-gunners will want to take advantage of the R5 C’s Enhanced Image Stabilization, especially to control for hand shaking movement. Available when using Canon RF lenses with optical IS, this function enhances the R5’s electronic IS when shooting in XF-AVC or MP4 formats, offering better anti-vibration performance than that obtained with conventional IS-equipped EF lenses (using the optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS R) and electronic IS together. Design A fan system keeps the R5 C cool, enabling uninterrupted, internal video recording, and pro touches such as a timecode port, durable housing, and a built-in cable clamp make the R5 C easy to integrate into your all-day, multicamera events. Timecode Port Accessories The versatile R5 C comes with a shoulder strap, a USB Type-B to USB Type-C cable, a cable clamp, an LP-E6NH battery, and a battery charger. Besides the battery, it can also be powered using the existing CA-946 adapter, the omnicharge Omni Mobile 25600 mAh power bank, the new DR-E6C DC coupler, or the PD-E1 USB power adapter. Advanced Audio For advanced audio options, add the Tascam CA-XLR2d-C XLR Microphone Adapter with two XLR inputs, which connects to the R5 C’s multi-interface shoe and offers 4-channel, 24-bit audio. Canon C70 Firmware Updates Thanks to a new firmware update, the following features are now available for the popular Canon C70 Cinema Camera: 12-bit internal Cinema RAW Light recording at rates of up to 60 fps in DCI 4K Super 35 and in 2K Super 16. HQ, ST, and LT options are available, depending on the resolution and frame rate. A Frame Recording mode that enables you to capture a set number of frames with a touch of the Record button. Interval recording and time-lapse effects, with the ability to select interval lengths and the number of frames captured.

Once again, DZOFilm delivers new options for high-production-value cinematography, and we at B&H Photo are excited to announce the two new full-frame zoom lenses in the DZOFilm Catta series. Available in white and suitable for narrative, commercial, live, and documentary filmmaking, these cinema-style  interchangeable-mount zoom lenses are available in Canon RF, Leica L, Sony E, Fuji X, and Nikon Z mounts, allowing you to swap  mounts and mount them natively on most cameras that support full-frame sensors. The optical and mechanical advantages of the Catta lenses will please cinematographers, focus pullers, and producers alike, and they are available as a single 35 to 80mm lens, 70 to 135mm lens, or as a two-lens kit. The mounts will be available separately, allowing you to expand your kit as needed. DZOFilm Catta series 70 to 135mm lens DZOFilm Catta series 35 to 80mm lens With a 43.5mm image circle and covering 35 to 80mm and 70 to 150mm, the lenses provide a consistent look from wide to long for full-frame image capture, meaning less time worrying about finding matching primes, quickly covering the scene with minimal lens changes—and you can use these lenses on intimate interiors, as well as studio sets and exteriors without compromise. The T2.9 maximum aperture is consistent throughout the zoom range across both lenses, meaning no relights just to get proper exposure when punching in for close-ups, freeing you to make creative decisions. The optical and iris designs create smooth, natural bokeh that helps draw your audience into the story, and won’t distract from interview shots when making documentaries. The gradual focus shift will help your focus pulls go unnoticed, and the long focus throw will help your focus puller acquire and hit precise focus marks, while the flexible-mount system will appeal to anyone who has more than one camera on which they want to use these lenses. Have you used DZOFilm lenses? Once youv’e tried the new Catta series of zoom lenses, share your experiences and thoughts in the Comments section, below.

Go beyond the traditional action cam with the versatile new DJI Action 2 camera and accessories. Sporting a redesigned camera module that allows users to magnetically attach a trove of additional accessories—for example, a Front Touchscreen Module that’s great for vloggers—the versatile Action 2 can be configured for every type of action, from wave surfing to couch surfing, and everything in between. This camera, in its complete ecosystem, sports a 155° FOV and is waterproof down to 32' below the surface for shooting in almost any location and weather. Add a waterproof case to shoot down to 196' or take the camera out of the case and add a macro lens attachment.

You can add additional storage with a readily available UHS-1 microSD card up to 256GB, and the integrated LiPo provides about 70 minutes of run time. Built into the camera are image stabilization and an automatic horizon feature to keep your image level. DJI Action 2 Camera and accessories As impressive as the camera is on its own, what makes the Action 2 camera an exciting release are the magnetic accessories that are easy to attach and expand the camera’s functionality and features. The camera has built-in magnets and uses a surface-mounted expansion port for attaching accessories. These include the  Front Touchscreen Module, which with accessories is perfect for turning your camera into a Dual Screen Combo  vlogging system. A Power Module  can be purchased by itself, or pick up the Power Combo, which includes the camera, power module, and accessories to extend the camera run time to 180 minutes. More magnetic accessories include the 3-prong  Magnetic Adapter Mount, a lanyard system for hands-free carrying and filming, Ball-Joint Adapter Mount, Floating Handle, Headband Mount, and Remote Control Extension Rod that can also serve as a mini tripod. Not to be overlooked is the Action 2 Wireless Microphone, which leverages the camera’s wireless capabilities to free your mic from being tethered to the camera, enabling you to get the mic just where it needs to be (up to 660' feet away from the camera) for optimal sound without interfering with the camera’s movement. DJI Action 2 with Headband Mount So, if you are a pro who wants more control over the camera’s settings, or just want to grab and go, it’s worth taking note of the DJI Action 2 camera system. Please share your thoughts on how you would like to use the action 2 camera in the comments section below—we’d love to hear them.

DJI has just announced the Ronin 4D, the brand’s newest line of professional cameras for the next generation of cinema production, featuring two all-in-one 4-axis gimbal cameras: the Ronin 4D 8K Cinema Camera and the Ronin 4D 6K Cinema Camera. The Ronin 4D’s modular system is made up of a core processing unit and a gimbal camera featuring DJI’s flagship Zenmuse X9 sensor and the new DJI CineCore 3.0 image processing system with DCCS (DJI Cinema Color System). The core cameras can be built out with a variety of mix-and-match accessories, depending on your production needs in the studio or on location. DJI Ronin 4D The compact camera features a built-in gimbal that installs on the arm of the main unit, and it adds a fourth Z-axis to the traditional 3-axis configuration for additional stability in motion, particularly during dolly movement, to prevent vertical shake. The gimbal provides multiple visual sensors, an IMU (inertia/force sensor), and a barometer to keep the camera rock steady. Its AMF (Automated Manual Focus) technology provides accurate autofocus while also allowing the camera operator to control focus at any time during the automated process. Ronin 4D 6K Cinema Camera Ronin 4D 8K Cinema Camera On the inside, the Ronin 4D provides either the Zenmuse X9 8K sensor that can capture up to 8K75 video with 800/4000 dual native ISOs or the Zenmuse X9 6K sensor that can capture up to 6K60 or 4K120 video with 800/5000 dual native ISO. The CineCore 3.0 image processing system allows the camera to record ProRes RAW, 422 HQ, and H.264 formats internally; it utilizes ActiveTrack Pro for tracking shots, and both sensors feature an advertised 14+ stops of dynamic range. The full 8192 x 4320 resolution features crisp detail that can be cropped to 4K, re-centered, and stabilized in post, retaining the same high-quality imagery. Other features of the camera include built-in 9-stop ND filters, HDMI and SDI outputs, and a DL lens mount to support a variety of full-frame, carbon-fiber lenses, which will be available in the near future. The DL mount also allows for interchangeable lens mounts such as Leica M and Sony E-mount that provide zoom, macro, and anamorphic options for your production. The camera can record internally using a built-in CFexpress Type-B slot on the main body, and it also features a USB 3.1 Type-C port to record externally to a 1TB PROSSD. It records on-board audio using the 3.5mm and XLR input connectors on the main body. Since the design is modular, there are numerous accessory options available to add to the camera to complete your rig, including a top handle, X9 focus motor, high-bright monitor, and focus/pan/tilt handgrips. An expansion plate can be added to provide an SDI port, XLR input, and timecode. An optional wireless transmitter uses DJI’s O3 wireless video technology, allowing you to monitor up to 1080p60 video from the camera up to 20,000' away over 2.4 and 5.8 GHz DFS frequencies using secure AES-256 encryption. 1TB PROSSD High-Bright Monitor LiDAR Range Finder With the optional LiDAR Range Finder, you can focus accurately using an intuitive waveform, which can detect up to 43,200 points within a 33' range with varying surface textures and subtle light changes to provide autofocus and ActiveTrack Pro, working with an enormous amount of data. The camera is powered either from a DC power input or from a high-capacity TB50 battery, which can provide up to 2 hours of shoot time. Questions or comments? Post them in the Comments section, below.
