The last piece of kit to complete the C70 is an Atomos Shinobi which arrived in from thomann.de
I’ve yet to discover whether the viewing position is more comfortable on the top handle or directly on the body. Time in the field will tell.
I’ve been reading about the Canon C70 since its launch last year and decided it’d be good for my workflow. I placed an order in January and four weeks later it arrived. I’m still learning how to maximise its potential, but overall I’m really pleased with how it films and feels in the hand.
There’s no denying it’s a strange looking’ yoke, but it’s predecessor- the C100ii – was never going to win any beauty pageants either. I’m just hoping from the world of ugly cameras comes great pictures.
The DGO sensor produces amazing results, but it’s a steep learning curve.
Here’s a camera test I shot recently on the South Wall with Sigma 18-35, Viltrox EF-RF shooting mostly 50fps.
