Canon EOS C100 Mark II

Canon has expanded its Cinema EOS System with the launch of the EOS C100 Mark II, its latest large sensor professional video camera. The Canon EOS C100 Mark II is priced at £3,569 excluding VAT and will be available from January 2015.

EOS C100 Mark II key features:

  • 8.3MP Super 35mm CMOS sensor, ISO 102,400
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Face Detection AF
  • Dual Format AVCHD/MP4 recording up to 1080/60p
  • OLED display; improved EVF
  • Built in Wi-Fi and remote control options

The EOS C100 Mark II features a  35mm 8.3MP CMOS sensor, DIGIC DV 4 processor and an extended ISO range of 320 to 102,400. The camera also features a new image processing system which reduces moiré and aliasing, plus Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF is also featured in this upgrade to the acclaimed EOS C100 along with Face Detection AF technologyi.

Dual Format recording allows operators to simultaneously capture Full HD footage in both MP4 (up to 35Mbps) and AVCHD (up to 28Mbps) variants, using frame rates of up to 60P. Alternatively users can choose to record HD and SD footage to separate SD memory cards. Dual Format recording allows operators to quickly share low resolution SD files directly from the camera whilst the security of an HD copy is maintained, plus files can now be shared via FTP.

Browser-based camera control is available via built-in Wi-Fi and Canon's RC-V100 remote control can also be used to operate the EOS C100 Mark II. 


The EOS C100 Mark II's new OLED screen flips out to the side for ease of use and an improved tiltable Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) and a larger eyecup also feature on this model. 

A new built-in microphone has been added to the camera body and the EOS C100 Mark II is immediately compatible with Canon's interchangeable EF lenses and 4K EF cinema lenses.

Canon EOS C100 Mark II

From Canon UK:

 

Canon today expands its Cinema EOS System with the launch of the EOS C100 Mark II, its latest large sensor professional video camera for single operators. Building on the success of the acclaimed EOS C100, the EOS C100 Mark II offers a comprehensively upgraded package, delivering improved image quality and greater creative flexibility alongside easier operation and wireless sharing capabilities.

 

First-class results in all conditions

Harnessing technology found in the flagship EOS C500, the EOS C100 Mark II boasts a powerful imaging engine which delivers outstanding performance. A Canon Super 35mm 8.3MP CMOS sensor combines with a DIGIC DV 4 processor to deliver the rich colour and wide dynamic range synonymous with Cinema EOS cameras, while a new extended ISO range of 320 to 102,400 ensures superb performance, even in extreme low light conditions. The camera also features a new image processing system which enhances performance further by reducing moiré and aliasing, resulting in sharper, clearer images.

The EOS C100 Mark II includes Canon’s pioneering Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology as standard, which enables anyone to find focus and switch easily between multiple subjects in a single shot. Canon’s Face Detection AF technology is also supported and provides further creative control through the automatic recognition and focus tracking of faces.[i]

 

Greater creative opportunities

The EOS C100 Mark II features two recording formats to suit the needs of different productions.  Dual Format recording allows operators to simultaneously capture Full HD footage in both MP4 (up to 35Mbps) and AVCHD (up to 28Mbps) variants, using frame rates of up to 60P. Alternatively users can chose to record HD and SD footage to separate SD memory cards for maximum workflow flexibility and easy sharing. This range of options further expands the world of creative opportunities offered by the EOS C100 Mark II and also makes the capture of slow and fast motion action possible.

Integrated Wi-Fi connectivity – a first for the Cinema EOS series – ensures that sharing footage from the camera is now easier than ever thanks to the ability to transfer files via FTP.  In situations that demand a fast turn-around, such as news or events reporting, Dual Format recording allows operators to quickly share low resolution SD files directly from the camera whilst the security of an HD copy is maintained.

Uncompromising operation, wherever you are

Thanks to its robust, compact design, the EOS C100 Mark II is ideal for shooting in a wide range of applications, especially those involving a single shooter. Browser-based camera control via built-in Wi-Fi and support for Canon’s multi-functional RC-V100 remote control allow the camera to be positioned in locations that previously could not have been considered, enabling crews to maintain creative control even in the most awkward or obstructive situations.

The EOS C100 Mark II’s screen has been redesigned and now flips out to the side to provide greater monitoring possibilities, including allowing users to frame the shot whilst in front of the camera. A new OLED display delivers higher contrast, more vivid colours and faster response times, even in bright conditions. The camera also features an improved tiltable Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) and a larger eyecup to provide greater flexibility and accuracy during shooting. Additionally, a range of professional audio features accompany a microphone in the handle unit, while a new built-in microphone has been added to the camera body, enabling sound recording for continuity in the smallest possible camera configuration.

 

EF lenses – unlimited possibilities

As part of the EOS system, the EOS C100 Mark II is immediately compatible with – and optimised for - Canon’s world-renowned range of interchangeable EF lenses and 4K EF cinema lenses, providing both the power and versatility to meet virtually any creative challenge.
