Canon introduces C400 camera & RF Cine-Servo lens

MELVILLE, NY — Canon USA Inc. ( has introduced the EOS C400 cinema camera, with a native RF-mount and full-frame, back-illuminated stacked CMOS sensor. The 6K camera is designed for the film and live production markets, and will be priced at $7,999 when it ships in the fall.

The C400 can shoot 6K at up to 60p, and 4K at up to 120p for slow-motion effects. It’s equipped with a 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD, as well as slots for CFexpress and SD cards. At 3.5 pounds, the camera body is 10 percent lighter and smaller than Canon’s C500 Mark II.

The back-illuminated CMOS sensor, with triple-base ISO, allows the camera to capture high-quality imagery in a wide range of lighting conditions. Base ISOs of 800, 3200 and 12,800 maximize the full dynamic range of the C400.

Canon also introduced an RF-mount version of the company’s popular Cine-Servo 17mm-120mm cinema lens. This new native RF mount lens features additional pins to increase communication with RF-mount cameras, such as the EOS C400, enabling auto focus, distortion correction and metadata output for virtual productions. It will be priced at $23,850 when it ships in October.
Also from Canon is the newly-developed Mount Adapter PL-RF, which opens up a broad range of PL mount lenses to the EOS C400 camera. The adapter maintains compatibility for Cooke i/Technology metadata communication between camera and lens, and includes locking plates to help achieve maximum mount strength. It will be priced at $1,599 when it ships in September.
