While the Canon EOS C70
is the first camera to incorporate the Look File function, both the Canon EOS C500 Mark II
and Canon EOS C300 Mark III
now support the functionality as well, via a firmware update.
Additional performance enhancements and creative options have been added to all three cameras as part of the same Cinema EOS firmware release. For example, the updated EOS C500 Mark II is now able to record in 4:3 and 6:5 aspect ratios in Cinema RAW Light. Both the EOS C500 Mark II and EOS C300 Mark III also now feature a 1.8x de-squeeze option, enabling access to a wider range of anamorphic lenses, and the two cameras can even be controlled remotely by the Canon RC-IP100 remote camera controller
via Canon's original IP-based XC Protocol.
EOS C70 users will benefit from the improved autofocus capabilities, thanks to the addition of 'Whole Area' to the existing 'Small' and 'Large' frame size options. Touch Tracking and Face Detection can now be initiated by touching the LCD screen when you're using this new mode.
The latest firmware also adds support for a further seven zoom lenses to the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x
. These supported lenses allow for full optical correction, autofocus and metadata compatibility with the EOS C70, with even further lenses planned to be supported in future updates.
