NAB 2018 has a hint of a large sensor love affair perfume filling the air. Its beautiful aroma is intoxicating to the NAB attendees. From booth to booth these little Romeos and Juliets rush around the NAB floor trying to find the camera they love the most. Star-crossed lovers they may be considering the depth of wallet or purse it will take to love one’s own full frame camera. At $33,000 the Canon C700 Full Frame, or FF, appears to be one of the most reasonably priced high-resolution full frame cameras at NAB 2018 for camera owner/operator lovebirds. For almost the same amount as the base price of a Tesla Model 3 an owner/operator gets the camera. No EVF. No Codex Recorder. No Accessories except for the power cable one can plug into the wall. Add in a much needed CAnon EVF and you have a camera more accurately priced around $40,000. Yet, the Canon C700 Full Frame, and its image might just be worth every penny to those who love the full frame look. We had a chance to talk to Canon at NAB 2018 and learn more about the C700 FF.

Focus Guide Available; displays focus status or unfocused status using the AF signal. It is useful while MF or One-Shot AF is not being performed. When the AF frame is set to movable, the guide display can be moved to any position by operating the joystick. If the AF frame is fixed to the center of the display, the guide can be moved independently of the fixed AF frame. The guide can be displayed in the main frame or sub frame. When displaying, the main and sub frames will be swapped with every SET operation.
