The simple and intuitive user interface provides the ability to remotely operate an extensive range of camera functions such as optical zoom, exposure control, touch auto focus, picture profiles and more. In addition, up to four camera live view feeds can be monitored simultaneously in high quality and with minimal latency. Users can now control a multi-camera studio at their fingertips, with the ability to adjust critical settings and remotely trigger multiple cameras at once.
Canon is also announcing a host of free-of-charge firmware updates for the XF605 camcorder and Cinema EOS cameras. The XF605 professional camcorder now benefits from advanced SRT IP streaming support, enabling high quality and reliable video streaming over Wi-Fi or Ethernet networks.
A new Chunk Transfer Function allows bitesize uploads of long duration recordings via FTP using Canon’s Content Transfer Mobile app to enable more efficient workflows for breaking news. Further enhancements to the XF605 include the addition of Canon 709 picture profile, previously seen in Cinema EOS cameras, enhancing footage straight out of the camera with a subtle increase in contrast and colour, as well as further customisation options to the waveform monitor and vectorscope size and opacity.
The EOS R5 C, EOS C70, ESO C300 Mark III and EOS C500 Mark II cinema cameras now benefit from extended lens compatibility with the latest Super 35mm Flex Zooms, RF Mount Cinema Primes and cutting-edge RF 24-105mm F2.8L IS USM Z. A digital teleconverter function also enabes lenses to reach even further with in-camera digital magnification.
Both the Multi-Camera Control application and XF605/ Cinema EOS firmware updates will be available to download from December 2023.
