Canon released a new firmware update for the C70 camera, adding Cinema RAW light internal recording in 4K and 1080p. You can download the firmware update at Canon USA. The update unlocks the 12-bit Cinema RAW light 4K recording capability and the 10-Bit XF-AVC proxy recording. 

This update helps users record high-quality footage without any need for in-camera processing while also giving you easier files to handle that you can quickly edit and get into your client's hands.
