    Offering exceptional creativity and flexibility, the new 4K compact digital cinema camera is perfect for a broad range of imaging professionals.

    As the first Cinema EOS camera to support the new RAW recording format – Cinema RAW Light – the EOS C200 provides the same flexibility in colour grading as Cinema RAW in a smaller file size, enabling filmmakers to record internally to a CFast 2.0™ card.

    Newly developed Canon Dual DIGIC DV6 processors provide the ability to record internally 4K UHD/50P MP4, 4K DCI RAW and continuous 120fps High Frame Rate (HFR) in Full HD without crop. At the same time, advances in Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus (AF) technology and a new touch screen LCD monitor provide smooth AF operation and effective tracking.

    Capability drives creativity

    The EOS C200 features Canon’s 4K Super 35mm CMOS sensor with an effective pixel count of 8.85MP, along with the newly developed Dual DIGIC DV6 image processors. As a result, it can deliver Cinema RAW Light recording at 4K DCI 50P internally to a CFast 2.0™ card. It can also deliver 4K UHD recording at 150Mbps, and 2K or Full HD at 35Mbps to SD cards in MP4 format.

    Supporting up to 15-stops of dynamic range with Cinema RAW Light and up to 13-stops of dynamic range in MP4 (Canon Log / Log 3), the camera is perfect for capturing highlight and shadow details.

    The EOS C200 is also capable of delivering both slow and fast motion recording at up to 120fps with no crop in Full HD/MP4, ideal for those wanting creative slow motion capture.

    An ISO range of 100 to 102,400 guarantees excellent performance, even in difficult lighting conditions, such as when quickly switching between locations. The built-in optical ND filters of up to 10 stops provide further flexibility and convenience, allowing filmmakers to shoot in bright light and expand the depth of field control.

    Advanced operability and ergonomic design

    Built for professionals and ideal for single shooters, the EOS C200 features an advanced AF system that provides reliability and accuracy when shooting 4K, as well as a touch screen LCD panel for filmmakers to easily select their subject. For those who need to switch effortlessly between several subjects in a single shot, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables smooth AF operation whilst the Manual Focus Assist Function, Face Detection with Face Priority and Face-Only options provide greater creative focus control.

    The EOS C200’s lightweight body of just 1.4kg is designed for comfortable hand-held shooting and will benefit those who are filming for long periods. The compact size also makes the camera suitable for mounting onto a drone or gimbal.

    Built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity allows for browser remote control and the ability to transfer files via FTP, whilst the camera’s compatibility options mean new and existing accessories can be used, including Canon’s electronic viewfinder - the EVF-V70.

    Cinema RAW Light for next generation workflows

    Canon has worked with several partners to ensure Cinema RAW Light is integrated with various software programs[i]. As a result, editing and grading of the Cinema RAW Light video format will be supported in DaVinci Resolve of Blackmagic Design. Editing will be possible in Media Composer from Avid Technology, using Canon RAW Plugin for Avid Media Access[ii]. This format can also be processed using a Canon application, Cinema RAW Development[iii].

    Support for Cinema RAW Light is also scheduled for EDIUS Pro, Grass Valley’s editing software, during 2017. Additionally, a future version of Final Cut Pro X from Apple Inc. will support Canon’s Cinema RAW Light, using Canon RAW Plugin for Final Cut Pro X[iv].

    MELVILLE, N.Y., May 31, 2017 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras, the latest additions to its acclaimed Cinema EOS line of professional cinema cameras. Designed to meet the demanding needs of filmmakers and TV production users, the new Canon cinema offerings will combine the ease of use of entry level cinema cameras with exciting new, high-end features that are ideal for cinema, documentary, wildlife, wedding and events productions.

    Representing the third generation of the Cinema EOS system, the Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras feature the latest in Canon technologies and offer two 4K video formats, Canon’s new Cinema RAW Light and MP4, optimized for those interested in recording beautiful HDR video. Alongside a newly developed dual DIGIC DV6 image processing system, Canon’s celebrated Dual Pixel CMOS AF system and improved operability for professionals, these new products C200B are capable of capturing stunning 4K video across a variety of production applications.

    “Building upon the success of our Cinema EOS system and taking into account feedback from users in the field, the new Canon EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras provide powerful and versatile solutions for production users eager to expand their creativity and explore the possibilities of HDR cinematography,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With an innovative new file formats available, alongside improved operability that professionals need, the new generation of Cinema EOS cameras are poised to become the camera of choice for many in the filmmaker community.”

    Based on feedback from Cinema EOS users, this new offering will be available in two configurations, while retaining the same core technologies within. The Canon EOS C200 Digital Cinema Camera is a production-ready solution that can be used right out of the box, accompanied by an LCD Monitor, LCD Attachment, Camera Grip and Handle Unit. The camera also features a 1.77 million dot OLED Electronic View Finder (EVF). For users who crave more versatility and the ability to craft custom setups tailored to their subject or environment, the Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera offers cinematographers the same camera without these accessories and the EVF to optimize shooting using a gimbal, drone or a variety of other configurations.

    New Features and Benefits

    The Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras sport the same 8.85MP CMOS sensor, that combines with a newly developed dual DIGIC DV6 image processing system to help process high-resolution image data and record video from Full HD (1920x1080) and 2K (2048x1080) to 4K UHD (3840x2160) and 4K DCI (4096x2160). A core staple of the third generation Cinema EOS System, this new processing platform offers wide-ranging expressive capabilities and improved operation when capturing high-quality HDR video.

    The combination of sensor and newly developed processing system also allows for the support for two new 4K file formats designed to help optimize workflow and make 4K and HDR recording more accessible to filmmakers. Cinema RAW Light, available in 4K 60p/50p at 10 bit and 30p/25p/24p at 12 bit, allows users to record data internally to a CFastTM card by cutting data size to about one-third to one-fifth of a Cinema RAW file, without losing grading flexibility. Due to the reduced file size, users will appreciate rich dynamic range and easier post processing without sacrificing true 4K quality. Alongside recording to a CFastTM card, proxy data (MP4) can also be simultaneously recorded to an SD card for use in offline editing.

    Additionally, filmmakers will also be able to export 4K in MP4 format on versatile SD media cards at 60/50/30/25/24P at 8 bit. Support for UHD recording allows for use in cinema and broadcasting applications or scenarios where long recording times are needed while still maintaining top image quality. The digital cinema cameras also offer slow motion Full HD recording support at up to 120fps to help ensure every frame is captured in exquisite detail.

    The Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras feature Innovative Focus Control that helps assist with 4K shooting that demands precise focusing, whether from single or remote operation. Canon’s acclaimed Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology helps to expand the distance of the subject area to enable faster focus during 4K video recording. This also allows for highly accurate continuous AF and face detection AF when using EF lenses. For 4K video opportunities that call for precise focus accuracy that can’t be checked on an HD monitor, users can also take advantage of the LCD Monitor LM-V1 (supplied with the EOS C200 camera), which provides intuitive touch focusing support to help filmmakers achieve sophisticated focusing even as a single operator.

    In addition to these features, the Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras offer:

    • Over Sampling HD Processing: enhances sensitivity and helps minimize noise
    • Wide DR Gamma: helps reduce overexposure by retaining continuity with a gamma curve
    • ISO 100-102400 and 54db gain: high quality in both low sensitivity and low-light environments
    • In-Camera ND Filter: Internal ND unit allows cleaning of glass for easier maintenance
    • ACESproxy Support: Delivers standardized color space in images, helping to improve efficiency
    • Two SD card and one CFast™ card slots for internal recording
    • Improved grip and Cinema EOS System compatible attachment method
    • Support for Canon CINE-SERVO and EF Cinema Lenses
    • Cinema RAW Light Compatibility
    • Editing and grading of Cinema RAW Light video format will be supported in DaVinci Resolve of Blackmagic Design. Editing will also be possible in Media Composer® from Avid Technology®, using Canon RAW Plugin for Avid Media Access®1 This format can also be processed using a Canon application, Cinema RAW Development. Demonstrations using these software programs will be given at the 2017 Cine Gear Expo June 1st-4th in Hollywood, CA.
    • Furthermore, Premiere Pro CC of Adobe® Systems will support this format until the end of a 2017. Editing will also be possible in Final Cut Pro® X from Apple®, using Canon RAW Plugin for Final Cut Pro X®.*3 after second half of this year.

  • The new COMPACT-SERVO 70-200mm Zoom Lens looks interesting. However at T4.4 I think the price factor may be a bit high: $5800 USD.

  • Our Cine Gear Interview

  • Some old article - http://blog.abelcine.com/2012/11/05/what-exactly-is-canon-raw/

    Canon RAW Light can be not entirely raw. So it can have applied channel gains (for WB) and ISO. As far as I understand Canon guys from our interview it is 12bit compressed thing, out of 14-16bit ADC original signal.

  • I also have issue with capitalists greed

    I know. But it looks nasty and not suitable for many occasions.

  • CFast has always been expensive. Possibly because it's not a mainstream product? SD cards are much better form factor, (not too small- not too large) and are used in basically all small cameras, apart from really small cameras that use microSD.

    If however the landscape changes and all these small point & shoot cameras disappear then possibly SD card cost will rise?

    We already see that UHSii is very expensive, question is will these also come down in price? If the consumer cameras disappear then a very different situation will happen.

    Aside from PCB and plastic case it is zero investments, as they use same controllers and NAND chips as mass products. So it is greed only.

    We already see that UHSii is very expensive, question is will these also come down in price? If the consumer cameras disappear then a very different situation will happen.

    Very similar here. Companies reach cartel agreement usually to milk users and get big profits for owners.
