Despite their strikingly different designs, the Canon EOS C70 and Canon EOS C300 Mark III share many similar features and specifications. Both cameras use an identical Canon-developed 4K Super 35mm DGO sensor, and both are compact enough to be used by single-camera operators. But there are some distinct differences between them.
The EOS C70 is Canon's first RF mount Cinema EOS camera, with DSLR-like handling, advanced image stabilisation and dual SD cards, which unlock multiple recording options. The EOS C300 Mark III is heavier, and its more modular design allows it to be rigged to suit varied production requirements. Unlike the EOS C70, it uses the established EF or PL lens mount, and it has the capability to record in Cinema RAW Light for maximum post-shoot flexibility.
