Canon is set to announce new firmware for the Canon EOS C70 on Wednesday, 19th January. The headline feature of the new firmware will be the introduction of 12-Bit Cinema RAW Light recording. While Canon hasn’t announced anything yet, it appears that Canon leaked themselves via their UK website stating that it was on the way and that it would become available in March. Beyond that, it reveals no other information.
That’s not all we’re expected to hear about on Wednesday, either. Canon is also expected to announce the Canon EOS R5C, an active-cooled version of the Canon EOS R5 designed specifically for 8K cinema. We might also see some new Cinema lenses as well as possibly 8K modules for the Canon EOS C300 Mark III and Cinema EOS C500 Mark II.
