    Seems like a great camera to me as a Gimbal/B cam to my C200. Maybe a bit expensive, but very capable. I think keeping the C200 for it's RAW option and full size XLR and using this as a B-cam would be awesome. I look forward to colors matching on 2-camera interview setups (current B cam is Panny S1)

    Interested in hearing the DVX community's take!

    I love it. The only thing I wish it had was a SDI port but otherwise it checks all my boxes!

    It's the camera to upgrade to if you're looking for this kind of camera in a similar price range.

    $3900 and $5500 isn't a worrisome difference (if you're working) and the overall value of the C70 is worth more than the R5.

    With that said, if I had to do it over again and overheating did not exist, I'd buy the R6.

    Yep I'd have bought an R6 already as well if the overheating wasn't a thing.

    I'm glad I waited, because this C70 seems to be almost everything I need in my next cameras. I'll wait for reviews to come out, but right now I'm assuming this will be my upgrade from the C100 cameras I have.

    Anyone know if it does external RAW over HDMI? Not a deal breaker at all, but it would be nice if it could.

    I hope someone sells a R5 now. I need a second one for an upcoming assignment soon

    the codec specs are nice but only one HDMI port and the missing EVF might become a bigger
    issue than you might consider now.

    Well considering I have a C200 with both those things, I'd probably use that anytime I needed it. Looking at the C70 as a complement to the C200 on gimbal and with 2-camera setups.

    It definitely has kind of a video look. Very similar to the C300 Mk3.

    I do love the look of the BTS camera though! I'm assuming a C500 or C700?
