Canon adds to Cinema EOS System of professional cinematography products

Canon announced a new addition to the Cinema EOS System of professional cinematography products: the EOS C200 digital cinema camera, which makes possible the on-camera recording of 4K video in MP4, and the new Cinema RAW Light.

The camera is ideal for video productions such as movies, TV dramas and commercials, as well as news, documentaries and milestones events like weddings.

“We see today a lot of Filipinos who are getting into the business of cinematography. We see how hobbies of shooting moving images are turning into purposeful expression of creativity in the movie, TV, advertising, and event videography industries. That is why our newest EOS C200 comes in at a perfect time as it brings in great features that will help cinematographers deliver powerful materials with much more efficiency,” said Benny Yu, consumer group head of Canon Marketing Philippines.

The EOS C200 features the Dual DIGIC DV 6 image processing platform that makes possible the recording of 4K video1 to CFast cards using the new Cinema RAW Light video format, which retains the same amount of information and degree of freedom when color grading a Cinema RAW while achieving between one-third and one-fifth the file size, in addition to 4K MP4-format video2 recording to SD cards.

Both of these 4K video formats are recorded on camera, thereby enabling more efficient 4K video content creation. Using the LM-V1 touch-panel LCD monitor, users can select the subject they wish to focus on with touch operation. With Dual Pixel CMOS AF, which enables tracking and autofocus ideal for video capture, users can employ touch operations for adjustments, even during 4K shooting.

The EOS C200 delivers a maximum 15-stop equivalent wide dynamic range for 4K HDR video recording in Cinema RAW Light format, and a maximum 13-stop equivalent in MP4 format that employs Canon’s proprietary Log gammas—Canon Log 3 and Canon Log.

Through the use of Canon’s 4K displays, users can confirm ITU-R BT.2100 (PQ)2 – compliant HDR video on location while shooting.

From the first half of 2018, a free firmware update will be available, to include support for the XF-AVC (YCbCr 4:2:0 8bit) video format used by such digital cinema cameras as the EOS C700 /EOS C700 GS PL and EOS C300 Mark II.

Coinciding with the release of the EOS C200, DaVinci Resolve, Blackmagic Design’s editing and grading software, will commence support for Cinema RAW Light. In addition, users can perform editing using Avid Technology, Media Composer with the official Canon plugin “Canon RAW Plugin for Avid Media Access” and processing using Canon’s Cinema RAW Development.

Additionally, a future version of Final Cut Pro X from Apple will support Canon Cinema RAW Light, using Canon RAW Plugin for Final Cut Pro X5. Optional Accessories LM-V1 LCD monitor (included with the EOS C200). The LM-V1 LCD monitor employs a 4-inch LCD panel for touch-screen operations, making possible the easy selection of focus points for convenient adjustment, even during single-operator shooting.

The LA-V1 LCD attachment unit connects the camera body to the LM-V1 LCD monitor, enabling the monitor to be rotated during shooting while keeping it securely attached to the camera body.

Compared with the EOS C300 Mark II, the distance between the grip and the optical axis has been reduced by approximately 9 mm, improving weight balance for handheld use. The grip can also be attached and detached with ease.

The HDU-2 handle unit can be attached to the camera body without tools, and features a newly-designed handle screw that enables fast and easy attachment.

CL-V2 clamp base (sold separately) The CL-V2 clamp base enables the attachment of the optional high-image-quality EVF-V70 OLED electronic viewfinder (sold separately) to the EOS C200, which does not come packaged with the LM-V1 LCD monitor, to make possible comfortable EVF shooting.

EOS C200, LM-V1, LA-V1, GR-V1, HDU-2, CL-V2 and CG-A20 will be released in August.
