Canon launches the EOS C100 Mark II

Canon expands its Cinema EOS System with the launch of the EOS C100 Mark II – a large sensor professional video camera for single operators. Building on the EOS C100, the new model offers a comprehensively upgraded package.

A Canon Super 35mm 8.3MP CMOS sensor combines with a DIGIC DV 4 processor to deliver rich colour and a wide dynamic range. The ISO range is 320 to 102,400. The camera also features a new image processing system which reduces moiré and aliasing.

The EOS C100 Mark II includes Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology as standard. This enables you to find focus and switch between multiple subjects in a single shot. Canon’s Face Detection AF technology is also supported and provides the automatic recognition and focus tracking of faces.

The EOS C100 Mark II features two recording formats. 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 record HD and SD footage to separate SD memory cards for maximum workflow flexibility and easy sharing. This range of options 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.

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 creative control even in the most awkward or obstructive situations.

The EOS C100 Mark II 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. 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.

The EOS C100 Mark II is expected to be available in Europe in January 2015 with a suggested retail price (including VAT) of around £4280.
