Canon C200 Camera

  • I think only camera company with direct SSD drive memory is currently Kinefinity.

    Otherwise also Atomos.

  • @alcomposer

    M2 in good custom casing is that they should use for small and medium guys. For larger cameras it must be approach like Atomos use.

    And SD is the sad horrible format.

    It is good reason why things go to standardized PCI-E abolishing all this custom things. As design and such become more and more social, more and more complex, you can not have 4 similar things doing same thing.

    So it is bad fate ahead of SD, HDMI and such.

  • So you think PCI-E in future of cameras?

  • @alcomposer

    I think socialism is future of humanity :-) And cameras will follow :-) Including standardized interfaces.

  • Standardised interfaces? Never going to happen. Never has, never will. Socialism is an unlikely future but I hope you are correct in your prediction.

    Not only happened, but worked normally :-) Inability to establish standards in the common interest rise exactly due to private property on means of production and resulting behavior.

    And socialism is not more unlikely than tomorrow morning.

  • Pure socialism only works for utilities. Standards are another issue. If we had them, the standard would probably be Canon EF, which would be much better than nothing. Back when we had standards, the government usually picked the market leader's system. Back in the 50's, there was a major standards war between RCA/NBC and CBS over color TV. The FCC picked CBS's system, which was superior for color, but incompatible with existing black and white sets. RCA/NBC went to court, won their case, and we ended up with NTSC.

    Have no idea that this means. Including that "pure socialism" is.

    And it absolutely does not matter that capitalist will win.

    Almost all present standards are made by conglomerate of capitalists and usually specially worsened to make applicable as many patents of parties involved as possible.

  • This camera really needs such modes:

    • HEVC 12bit lossless mode for storing so called raw data.
    • HEVC 12bit and 10bit intra modes
    • HEVC 8bit, 10bit and 12bit inter modes from 15mbit for 1080p to 300Mbit 4K.
  • Currently C200 is RAW or 8 bit... not really lots of choices...

  • That's pretty noisy for a RAW camera. Helium does really well and C300MK2 at 2k is really good too. Kind of disappointed.

  • Firmware Version 1.0.1.1.00:

    • Fixes a phenomenon in which the start time code is not correctly displayed when MP4 clips captured at 59.94P/50.00P frame rate are imported into NLE software.
