AF upgrade for Canon C100

Canon has announced an optional feature upgrade for the EOS C100 Digital Video camera - Dual Pixel CMOS AF autofocus technology, enabling continuous autofocusing with Canon's entire EF lens lineup.

First employed in the EOS 70D SLR camera launched in August 2013, the innovative new AF technology helps facilitate greater shooting efficiency across a variety of shooting situations. For users that work with moving subjects, this optional Dual Pixel CMOS AF upgrade for the EOS C100 camera will allow for a smoother, more natural autofocus that can be particularly useful for video markets like documentary, sports, event and wildlife.

Canon's Dual Pixel CMOS AF makes use of the company's proprietary CMOS sensor technology with a new structure that both captures light and performs phase-difference detection autofocus. While focusing on the EOS C100 camera is primarily performed manually, the feature upgrade will enable smooth continuous AF, a capability that can be particularly beneficial when operating with a small production crew, electronic news gathering, or run-and-gun documentary-style shoots. 

This optional upgrade is expected to be available in February 2014 for a cost of $500.00. It will require the EOS C100 camera body to be shipped to a Canon service center.
