Codex has developed a fully integrated recording and workflow system for Canon’s new Cinema EOS C700 camera. The combination of Codex with the EOS C700 camera allows for high-speed 4.5K Raw recording at up to 100fps, 4K Raw at up to 120fps, 4K Apple ProRes at up to 60fps, 2K Apple ProRes at up to 240fps.

Codex continues to provide one workflow for digital cinematography, no matter which camera is used.

Codex’s successful partnership with Canon goes back to the EOS C500 camera, and the combination reached amazing heights, going into space on the ISS for the IMAX/Disney movie A Beautiful Planet, lensed by cinematographer James Neihouse ASC.

Cinematographer Steven Poster ASC, president of the International Cinematographers Guild said, “I’m excited to shoot with the next generation Canon Cinema EOS camera. The combination of Codex and Canon technology has worked well for me in the past – I used the C500 and Codex Onboard Recorder on Amityville – but this takes things to a whole new level. And it integrates into Codex’s production-proven workflow, which is another huge benefit for me.”

Codex senior vice president of business development, Brian Gaffney, said, “Canon has brought some amazing technology to the table. Our teams have worked together to fully-integrate Codex technology into the EOS C700 camera. Our technology partnership with Canon underscores Codex’s reputation as the clear leader for no-nonsense, fast, convenient Raw recording technologies and streamlined workflows. Canon is continuing to expand the creative and technical choices available to cinematographers with the EOS C700, and we are excited to show the pictures it can produce.”
