First image and specs of the Canon EOS C700x camera have been leaked online. From the image we can say the Cinema EOS camera will come with a global shutter and capable of recording videos at 4K resolution.
According to The New Camera website Canon is planing the “introduction of global shutter and 4K video in EOS Cinema lineup”.
The name of the camcorder could be different as the C700x may just be a codename for a new cinema camera. If true, this would also mean Canon is going to introduce a new model in their Cinema line-up.
