New Canon EOS C300 Mark III and EOS C500 Mark II Firmware Enables Frame.io Camera to Cloud Compatibility

MELVILLE, NY, April 21, 2022 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today a firmware update for the Canon EOS C300 Mark III and EOS C500 Mark II digital cinema cameras. The new firmware will enable these cameras to be Frame.io Camera to Cloud (C2C) compatible devices. This cutting edge workflow can save valuable time, allowing a collaborative cloud-based workflow in a variety of production environments from scripted motion picture and television production to reality TV, documentary, commercial, and more.

Transferring footage from camera, from on set or location, into the post-production workflow traditionally requires backing up files to a hard drive and carrying or shipping the drives to another location to be ingested for post. C2C workflow sends secure high-quality, low-bandwidth H.264 proxies, 4K 10bit 4:2:2 H.265 (HEVC) files and uncompressed audio files with matching timecode and filenames to the Frame.io cloud platform. Frame.io® is now an Adobe® company.

Using a third-party Wi-Fi, 5G or LTE streaming encoder connected to the camera output, Frame.io C2C workflow can automatically distribute clips to editors (or anyone else who needs them) the moment the Director calls “cut.” This enables immediate review of footage on an authorized user’s device on or off set, anywhere in the world, empowering all stakeholders to watch production and collaborate in real-time.

Availability

The firmware update that will enable Canon EOS C300 Mark III and Canon EOS C500 Mark II digital cinema cameras to leverage third-party encoders for Camera to Cloud is scheduled to be available end of May 2022.*

Order the Canon EOS C300 Mark III and Canon EOS C500 Mark II digital cinema cameras from B&H.

New Canon EOS C70 Firmware Update Answers The Top Demands of Professional End-Users

MELVILLE, NY, January 19, 2022 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced a firmware update for the EOS C70 4K Digital Cinema Camera that implements sought after features such as Cinema RAW Light internal recording as well as Frame and Interval recording modes. The added features allow the EOS C70 to be better paired with the EOS C500 Mark II and EOS C300 Mark III workflows, and come as a direct result of end-user feedback from professionals.

Cinema RAW Light Internal Recording

The addition of Cinema RAW Light internal recording to the EOS C70 camera further enhances the recording capabilities of what’s already a powerful digital imaging machine. This compact cinema camera can now capture 12-bit Cinema RAW Light internally to compatible SD cards. Cinema RAW Light captures the widest dynamic range from the Dual Gain Output sensor (16+ stops total) and allows the most flexibility to grade captured content. Three quality settings of Cinema RAW Light will make their way into the EOS C70 via the firmware update. The settings are: RAW HQ (high quality), RAW ST (standard quality), and RAW LT (light recording). All three modes are 12-bit regardless of frame rate. Lastly, Cinema RAW Light is compatible with Proxy and Double-Slot recording.

Frame and Interval Recording Modes

The addition of Frame and Interval Recording modes is a direct result of user feedback, and adds even more recording flexibility to the EOS C70 camera by allowing easy creation of stop motion and time-lapse sequences when recording in the XF-AVC and MP4 formats. Frame recording is for stop motion capture, and every press of the record button captures a user-determined number of frames. Interval Recording sets the interval and number of frames to be captured for time-lapse sequences. Both recording modes help operators further tell their story in a more creative and inspiring form and are easy to use.

The firmware update will be available for download in March 2022*.

The Canon EOS C70 is in stock at B&H.

From Canon USA:

Building on user feedback, Canon’s firmware unleashes new photographic and video possibilities for the EOS R5, EOS R6, and EOS-1D X Mark III cameras

Canon is introducing a firmware update for three of its EOS cameras in response to customer feedback. Users of the EOS R5 (firmware v1.3), EOS R6 (firmware v1.3), and EOS-1D X Mark III (firmware v1.4) cameras have access to several feature updates helping to streamline workflows and provide users with greater creative freedom.

Increased Image Quality and Usability

The EOS R5 camera will benefit from several upgrades offered with the firmware update, including Full HD 120p and support for greater customization of the camera. Users will now be able to save personalized and preferred camera settings to a memory card, which can be copied to a different camera or used when the settings are adjusted. There is also the option to turn the LCD monitor off during shooting and use it for playback only, providing a familiar DSLR-style operation. For both the EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras, the firmware achieves full-time manual support update for select* RF lenses, allowing photographers to override the focus of RF lenses manually when in One Shot and Servo AF mode.

*RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM and RF70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM

Streamlined Professional Workflows

For the EOS R5 camera, professional photographers can safeguard and quickly share photos with the new Protect Image Transfer function allowing protected images to be locked - preventing them from accidentally being deleted - and transferred via FTP. Users of the EOS-1D X Mark III and EOS R5 cameras can now see FTP Transfer status on the LCD screen, clearly displaying how long it will take to transfer pictures.

Enhanced Video Functionality

The firmware enables low-bit rate RAW movies, which reduces the size of RAW video files allowing for faster file transfer rates for users of the EOS R5 and EOS-1D X Mark III cameras. The update also provides enhanced video capabilities for the EOS R5 camera with the addition of Canon Log 3 – a log gamma curve enabling greater dynamic range, superb color editing capabilities, and easier file management. For even greater flexibility of video formats across all cameras, the firmware unlocks a lower bit rate IPB movie option creating small, easily shareable video files.

Several software updates have also been released today to complement the firmware upgrades and bring forth support for Apple M1 processors via Rosetta for Digital Photo Professional (DPP) with v4.14 and EOS Utility with v3.13.1.

Canon’s commitment to photographers and videographers will continue through further plans to bring new functionality to these three models based on user feedback, including bringing Canon Log 3 to the EOS-1D X Mark III camera in a future update.

The firmware and software updates are now available to download on each product page:

From Canon USA:

Supercharge Your Stop Motion Animation

Whether pre-installed on a new EOS R or manually installed on an existing EOS R the new Stop Motion Animation upgrade for EOS R cameras increases your Live View resolution to 1920x1280 from Canon's normal of 960x640 when connected to Dragonframe stop motion animation software. This makes it easier for animators to confirm focus and movement within every frame.

Larger Live View

Live view is critical to animators creating stop motion animation films. Animators use the remote live view of the camera to review critical details and make decisions within the Dragonframe software. Canon's Stop Motion Animation firmware increases the Live View to 1920x1280 - helping animators see subtle movement for refined animation.

Canon EOS R Firmware Update for Pro Stop Motion Animation - Resolution

This is a comparison of the new Live View resolution of 1920x1280 (full screen) versus the original size of 960x640 (small inset). The large preview image makes it easier for the animators to have confidence in the shot and can improve the overall quality of the scene.

USB Manual Focus Peaking

Canon has added Manual Focus Peaking over USB to interface with Dragonframe software.

Canon EOS R Firmware Update for Pro Stop Motion Animation - USB Manual Focus Peaking

Seeing Focus Peaking on the full screen allows the animator to precisely capture fine detail and adjust for desired depth of field.

Canon EOS R Firmware Update for Pro Stop Motion Animation - Critical Focus

Critical focus on a subject's eyes (red edge) gives the animator the confidence that the scene flows as directed.

Standard Firmware vs Stop Motion Animation Firmware Comparison Chart

Canon EOS R Firmware Update for Pro Stop Motion Animation - Comparison Chart

Important information about EOS R Stop Motion Animation Firmware

  • HDMI output is not available on the EOS R with this firmware installed

  • MF peaking will not show up even if [MF peaking settings] is set to [On] under the following conditions:
    • When an EF-S lens is used
    • When [Multiple exposure] is set
    • When [Cropping/aspect ratio] is set to an option other than [FULL]
    • When the shooting screen is magnified
    • When you keep holding down the shutter button after shooting

How to obtain the Stop Motion Animation Firmware

Anyone interested in utilizing these features with the Canon EOS R can do so in one of the following ways:

A new version of the EOS R camera with the Stop Motion Animation Firmware already installed is now available for purchase. Purchase EOS R with Firmware at the Canon USA Store.

From Canon USA:

New Updates Include XF-AVC 4K 30p Recording on XF705 Professional Camcorder, as well as Improved Full-screen Black Level to .001 Nits on Select 4K Reference Displays

MELVILLE, NY, April 20, 2020 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced upcoming firmware updates for several professional imaging products, such as XF-AVC 4K 30p recording on the popular XF705 Professional Camcorder. These firmware updates provide improved workflow, ease-of-use, file editing compatibility with popular NLE systems, and creative flexibility for products in the Cinema EOS, Professional Camcorder, and 4K Reference Display lines.

Firmware updates for the EOS C300 Mark III, EOS C500 Mark II, EOS C700, EOS C700 FF, EOS C700 GS, EOS C200, and EOS C200B Cinema Cameras will allow for support of the new CINE-SERVO 25-250mm T2.95-3.95 (CN10x25 IAS S) Cinema Lens. Additional free firmware updates are as follows:

  • The XF705 Professional Camcorder update will include the addition of several recording formats, such as XF-AVC 8-bit 4:2:0 up to 4K 30p and MP4 8-bit 4:2:0 up to FHD 60p. Other updates include pull-down 60p signal to 24p/30p recording, browser remote use for both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections, and HDR high-frame shooting support.
  • The EOS C300 Mark III Digital Cinema Camera update will now show the chosen resolution and color sampling settings on the onscreen display by default.
  • The EOS C500 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera update will allow for support of XF-AVC Long GOP and XF-AVC Proxy format, 3 or 5 seconds pre-recording ability, pull-down 60p signal to 24p/30p recording, “magnify” assignable button change, and user ability to give two files an identical name when recording from both card slots.
  • The EOS C700, C700 FF, and C700 GS Digital Cinema Cameras will update the Slow & Fast Motion display, including changing “REC” and “STBY” notification colors from white to red and green respectively.
  • The EOS C200 and C200B update will allow for support of pull-down 60p signal to 24p/30p recording and the simultaneous use of both HDMI and SDI ports.
  • The DP-V1710, DP-V1711, DP-V2410, DP-V2411, DP-V2420, DP-V2421, and DP-V3120 4K Reference Display updates include support for the reading of 3D-LUT/1D- LUT files in .cube LUT file format and tracking of errors to USB memory. Other updated support includes HDR monitoring assist functions such as the ability to check XY chromaticity value of pixels, area markers will be simultaneously displayed in two locations, expansion of the safety zone/grid markers, and the ability to highlight the areas above the desired luminance range. Also, the update will support enhanced ease-of-use and workflow with third party cameras.
  • The DP-V2411, DP-V1711 and DPV-1710 4K Reference Displays update will improve full-screen black level all the way down to .001 nits. This is a major upgrade over the previous specification of .005 nits.

Paid Firmware Updates Details Are as Follows:

  • The DP-V1711 and DP-V1710 4K Reference Displays paid firmware updates will offer an upgrade license and will raise full-screen peak luminance from 600 to 1000 nits. Also, full-screen peak luminance is now supported by a local dimming algorithm from 300 to 600 nits. The combined updates/upgrades listed here (both paid and free) for these reference displays would completely overhaul the image quality, which would be an impressive 1,000,000:1 full-screen contrast ratio.
