The Canon EOS C100 Mark II Cinema EOS Camera with Dual Pixel CMOS AF is Canon’s updated version of the C100 designed for event videographers, documentarians, and independent filmmakers. It incorporates the continuous autofocus function compatible with all Canon autofocus lenses, using Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. This new feature provides faster and more accurate autofocusing to assist users when operating with small crews.
The Mark II also adds a variety of upgraded features including face detection AF, MP4 recording, additional frame rates when recording in AVCHD and slow & fast motion options when recording in MP4. The Mark II also has an additional microphone on the camera body for recording sound when the top handle is removed. It incorporates a 3.5″ OLED display with increased resolution, and the EVF is now almost twice as large as on the original C100 and tilts as well. The Mark II supports GPS, and features built-in wireless functionality. The HDMI output supports timecode, as does the original C100, but it also supports Canon Log LUT.
The EOS C100 Mark II uses the same Super 35mm Canon CMOS sensor as its big brother, the C300, but uses a Digic DV 4 processor. With an EF lens mount, the camera is compatible with the full range of Canon EF, EF-S, and EF Cinema lenses. This is particularly useful for DSLR shooters who have already invested in Canon lenses. The camera uses the AVCHD codec to record 1080p video up to 24 Mbps. It supports dual SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards which, thanks to the efficient AVCHD codec, allows you to record nearly three hours of HD video on a single 32GB card. For professional applications, you can also record clean, uncompressed 4:2:2 video with embedded timecode via the HDMI output.
The ergonomic design of the EOS C100 Mark II is streamlined to support one-person shoots. Weighing only 2.2 pounds in its basic configuration, the camera’s flexible modular design supports a variety of shooting styles. Additional features such as One-Shot AF and Push Auto Iris allow operators to spend less time checking camera settings and more time capturing cinematic footage.
Experience the quality to realise your vision
An 8.3MP Super 35mm CMOS sensor, designed and manufactured by Canon specifically for video capture, provides stunning Full HD images. Combined with a new video processing system – utilising technology designed for the flagship EOS C500 Digital Cinema camera – it delivers superb high-resolution images with enhanced sensitivity (up to ISO 102,400), low noise, reduced rolling shutter artefacts and beautifully shallow depth of field. Canon Log Gamma provides 12 stops of latitude (800% dynamic range) for maximum post-production flexibility, whilst the Wide DR option supports faster turnaround by delivering footage with wide dynamic range without necessitating colour grading.
Cutting-edge autofocus for added control
The EOS C100 Mark II incorporates Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF offering incredible control with minimal effort. Continuous AF automatically tracks and focuses subjects at the centre of the screen, making action shots easier to capture. One-shot AF with enhanced accuracy makes focussing similarly effortless.
Face Detection AF – which responds to the face of a subject – is also available, making interviews and pieces to camera simple for individual filmmakers.
Select the parameters to suit your production
Shoot without limitations to meet every production goal. Record either AVCHD or MP4 files to two SD memory cards at up to 1080/60P, with relay and simultaneous recording, plus slow and fast motion capture using MP4 for added creative impact. You can even capture AVCHD footage in HD whilst recording MP4 files in SD resolution, for maximum workflow flexibility and quick turnaround.
Easy to carry, effortless to use
The EOS C100 Mark II complements your versatility as an ambitious filmmaker. It’s lightweight and easy to pack and carry, with a splash-resistant durable body built to stand up to the elements. In use, it’s equally filmmaker-friendly. A 3.5” 1.23 million pixel OLED display panel, plus a large, tiltable EVF put you firmly in control of every shoot. Additional automatic functions include Push Auto Iris and Auto White Balance, whilst full manual control is available for expert users. Powerful Focus Assist functions make manual focusing effortless.
Easier sharing, greater control
Built-in Wi-Fi enables FTP file transfer for easy sharing of files, and browser-based remote control. Control options are expanded further using the optional Canon Remote Control RC-V100, giving you the freedom to shoot from previously inaccessible locations.
External recording possibilities
HDMI output allows the EOS C100 Mark II to address the quality demands of the most exacting productions, enabling high bit rate recording to external devices. Embedded time code can be output along with video and audio files.
Added creativity with interchangeable EF lense
Expand your creative options with a huge range of interchangeable lenses. The EF mount is compatible with Canon 4K EF Cinema lenses plus over 80 EF lenses including specialist options such as Macro and Fish Eye. 3 built-in ND filters with manual control increase shooting versatility.
Capture the audio to complement your footage
Never miss a sound with audio capabilities designed to give your footage a professional edge. Recording options include LPCM or Dolby AC3. The top handle includes two XLR inputs and stereo microphone. The camera body features a built-in mic for continuity recording when using the smallest possible configuration.
