The EOS C100 Mark II provides videographers and independent filmmakers with an advanced creative tool that’s fully capable of capturing high quality footage, even at very low light levels. With Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus, a new video processing system and the same Super35mm CMOS sensor as used across the award-winning Cinema EOS range, the C100 Mark II provides a cost effective solution for high-quality video across a wide range of applications.

The EOS C100 Mark II further evolves the Canon range of Digital Cinema Cameras and offers a potent combination of a small, lightweight body with features such as Dual Pixel CMOS AF, ISO up to 102,400 and an 8.3MP Super35mm CMOS sensor for stunning Full HD (1920x1080) footage with reduced moiré and aliasing.

The camera offers an expanded set of recording options, with the AVCHD codec allowing recording at up to 28Mbps and a new MP4 mode offering data rates of up to 35Mbps for outstanding quality – plus the option to record the two formats simultaneously to separate SD cards. 1080p recording modes provide new creative possibilities.

The camera will appeal to a wide variety of single-operators and filmmakers in fields such as electronic news gathering (ENG), documentary making, independent movie productions, educational content production, events and weddings.

DIGIC DV4 PROCESSOR

New to the Cinema EOS range of Digital Cinema Cameras is the DIGIC DV4 processor, which provides enhanced image reproduction, supplementing the strengths of the DIGIC DV family – such as smooth gradation and faithful colour reproduction – with support for recording at higher data rates. The sensor and processor work together with the same 2K RGB processing system as found on the larger EOS C500 Digital Cinema Camera. This ensures reduction in both moiré and aliasing, resulting in cleaner, sharper images.

DUAL PIXEL CMOS AF

Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology is a groundbreaking innovation from Canon. The sensor in the EOS C100 Mark II is composed of two separate photodiodes for each pixel in order to achieve high-speed readout. With full rein given to these characteristics the sensor is capable of detecting two image signals from each pixel. The pioneering Dual Pixel CMOS AF function offers fast, smooth and accurate focusing when used with a huge range of EF lenses.

SUPER35MM CMOS SENSOR

Canon develops and manufactures its own sensors and has incorporated an 8.3MP Super35mm CMOS sensor in the EOS C100 Mark II. This sensor has a pixel size that is larger than that for conventional professional camcorders, enabling greater light-gathering capabilities for enhanced sensitivity and reduced noise. The camera uses a system developed for Canon’s flagship EOS C500 Digital Cinema Camera, which processes the native 8.3MP readout to produce the very best HD image quality.

Supported by a heightened signal read-out speed, the CMOS sensor reduces rolling shutter skews, a phenomenon prevalent with CMOS sensors in which fast-moving subjects may appear diagonally distorted.
