Exciting Features of Cannon EOS C100 Mark II

Cannon's new c100 is not only superb for its quality but also for it's film based features. The Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera offers all of the advantages of its predecessor while adding advanced new imaging and operational features by popular demand. Optimized for one-person use and compatible with the full range of Canon EF, EF-S, and EF-mount CN-E Cinema lenses, this greatly evolved camera integrates the same Emmy®-Award winning Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor used in all of Canon's Cinema EOS cameras, but now replaces the Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor with the more sophisticated Canon DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor. Here are the more exiting features..

Super 35mm CMOS Sensor

Super 35mm CMOS Sensor

The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera employs the same single Super 35mm Canon CMOS image sensor as the rest of the Cinema EOS camera family and includes the same innovative strategies that have established the outstanding image performance of these cameras. This 8.3 megapixel sensor maximizes the size of the individual photosite ? each of which deploys two photodiodes to ensure high speed removal of accumulated charge, which in turn helps elevate the effective sensor dynamic range.

DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor

DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor

The four 1920 x 1080 HD R Gr Gb B video components from the image sensor are pre-processed and then sent to the DIGIC DV 4 processor for advanced video processing. This includes separate interpolation of the sparsely sampled R and B HD components to form full frame 4K for each. The two green HD components are also interpolated to form a single full frame 4K Green component. These three 4K RGB components are then down-sampled to create a set of YCC 422 HD components that have high MTF, improved edge transitions, low false color moiré, and enhanced overall color reproduction.

Simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 Recording

Simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 Recording

The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera enables users to record in both the AVCHD and the MP4 recording formats in a variety of bit rates (up to 28 Mbps and 35 Mbps, respectively), resolutions, and frame rates, including 59.94p, to address practically any production need. Both formats have their own particular advantages. AVCHD is a professional standard that enables long-duration recording of full HD using moderate total data capacities.

Slow and Fast Motion Recording

Slow and Fast Motion Recording

The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera can provide slow and fast-motion video effects when recording in the MP4 format. Sound is not recorded, and the feature is not available during double-slot recording. Slow and fast-motion playback speeds can range from x0.4 slow up to x2.5 fast.

MP4 Conversion

MP4 Conversion

This feature allows for converting an AVCHD or MP4 recording on the SD card in the EOS C100 Mark II camera's main slot into a 3 Mbps (640 x 360) MP4 file on the SD card in the alternate slot. This gives users a smaller file that is easier to transmit. MP4 conversion is not possible for MP4 files at 35 Mbps and AVCHD files at 28 Mbps.

Redesigned 3.5-Inch OLED Panel

Redesigned 3.5-Inch OLED Panel

OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) is a newer display technology that provides vivid colors, high contrast, and dramatically improved responsiveness compared to traditional LCD screens. The 3.5-inch 1.23 megapixel OLED display on the EOS C100 Mark II delivers virtually 100 percent field of view coverage, wide and faithful color range support, and improved viewing even in bright sunshine. The EOS C100 Mark II camera's OLED screen has a new hinge design to help maximize monitoring versatility

1.23 Megapixel Tilting Color EV

1.23 Megapixel Tilting Color EV

Larger and totally redesigned from what was featured on its predecessor model, the EOS C100 Mark II camera's EVF (Electronic ViewFinder) uses a 0.45 inch 1.23 megapixel color panel surrounded by a large professional-style eyecup like the one used on the Canon EOS C300 and EOS C500 Cinema cameras. In addition, the new EVF has a 68 degree tilt angle, allowing it to be used more effectively in a variety of shooting situations.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

Dual Pixel CMOS AF

A standard feature of the EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera, Dual Pixel CMOS AF (AutoFocus) ingeniously deploys the two photodiodes within each sensor Photosite to facilitate a powerful phase difference detection that provides measurement data that ultimately controls the EF lens focusing system helps ensure that proper focus is always maintained, even in unpredictable "run and gun" news or documentary-type shooting situations. Dual Pixel CMOS AF operates within the center portion of the frame and is compatible with more than 100 Canon EF lenses.

Face AF Mode

Face AF Mode

Face AF mode detects and focuses on human faces. Both the Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Face AF capabilities give camera operators more freedom to concentrate on composing their shots and paying attention to potentially unpredictable shooting environments.

Wireless FTP Video Transfer

Wireless FTP Video Transfer

MP4 and AVCHD video files (and still images) can be wirelessly transferred to a selected FTP server. This feature is particularly useful for transferring time-critical video for news and for backing-up files. The feature uses the 5GHz band for quick, reliable file transfers. Up to 100 files can be selected to transfer at one time.
