Canon EOS C100 Mark II Cinema EOS Camera with Dual Pixel CMOS AF (Body Only)

The Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera offers all of the advantages of its predecessor while adding advanced new imaging and operational features by popular demand. Optimized for one-person use and compatible with the full range of Canon EF, EF-S, and EF-mount CN-E Cinema lenses, this greatly evolved camera integrates the same Emmy-Award winning Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor used in all of Canon's Cinema EOS cameras, but now replaces the Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor with the more sophisticated Canon DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor. In addition to improved RGB video processing, the camera's dual codec capability supports simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 recording, including 59.94P capture along with slow and fast motion recording. Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Face AF, wireless FTP video transfer, a built-in Canon Log LUT, GPS support and support for an extensive range of workflows, are additional operational features that have been added. A re-designed 270-degree rotating 3.5-inch OLED panel, and a tiltable large-size EVF with large-size eyecup, further empower the camera operator.

Improved Features

The compact, redesigned, lightweight body of the Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera has also evolved, and now includes a built-in microphone, START/STOP buttons clearly labeled in red, transparent covers on its twin SD card slots, improved battery insertion and removal, and an increased number of assignable buttons. Add to this its built-in ND filters, removable rotating pistol grip, removable top handle with twin XLR inputs, built-in stereo mic, and audio controls, and the Canon EOS C100 Mark II emerges as a powerfully evolved Super 35mm Digital HD camera designed to serve your quest for greater freedom of creative expression in HD video production.

Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor

The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera employs the Canon Super 35mm CMOS image sensor as the rest of the Cinema EOS camera family. This 8.3MP sensor maximizes the size of the individual photosite to help elevate the effective sensor dynamic range. Canon’s signal extraction strategies enhance the sensor’s signal-to-noise performance allows unprecedented elevation of the ISO setting in this professional Super 35mm camera, while always protecting its dynamic range.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

A standard feature of the EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera, Dual Pixel CMOS AF (AutoFocus) ingeniously deploys the two photodiodes within each sensor Photosite to facilitate a powerful phase difference detection that provides measurement data that ultimately controls the EF lens focusing system helps ensure that proper focus is always maintained, even in unpredictable -inchrun and gun-inch news or documentary-type shooting situations. Dual Pixel CMOS AF operates within the center portion of the frame and is compatible with more than 100 Canon EF lenses.

Redesigned 3.5-inch OLED Panel and EVF

The 3.5-inch 1.23MP OLED display on the EOS C100 Mark II delivers virtually 100 percent field of view coverage, wide and faithful color range support, and improved viewing even in bright sunshine. The new hinge design helps maximize monitoring versatility and allows the panel to fold shut when stowed and protect the OLED surface. It can then open 180 degrees to reveal function keys and a joystick, or open further to 270 degrees to deploy against the side of the camera and provide monitoring for directors, producers, or other production personnel. The camera's EVF uses a 0.45-inch 1.23MP color panel surrounded by a large professional-style eyecup

Slow and Fast Motion Recording

The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera can provide slow and fast-motion video effects when recording in the MP4 format. Sound is not recorded, and the feature is not available during double-slot recording. Slow and fast-motion playback speeds can range from x0.4 slow up to x2.5 fast.
