Canon C100 Mark II overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EOS C100 Cinema EOS Camera with Dual Pixel CMOS AF and 24-105mm f/4L Lens combines the compact Full HD 1080p EOS C100 camera with a versatile zoom lens that covers medium-wide to telephoto focal lengths on the camera's Super 35mm-sized CMOS image sensor. This EOS C100 has a hardware and firmware update that adds a new continuous autofocus function. The continuous AF mode uses Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology for faster, smoother, and more accurate autofocusing for all Canon autofocus lenses.

The EOS C100 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. 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.

The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens offers an extensive focal range with a constant maximum aperture of f/4. The lens is autofocus enabled and is fully compatible with the EOS C100's Dual Pixel CMOS AF for continuous autofocusing. The lens also provides optical image stabilization to help reduce the effects of camera shake. Used together, the EOS C100 and 24-105mm lens is ideal for event videographers, documentarians, and independent filmmakers working with small crews or run-and-gun shooting situations.

  • EOS C100 Cinema EOS Camera with Dual Pixel CMOS AF (Body Only)

    The Canon EOS C100 Cinema EOS Camera with Dual Pixel CMOS AF is an updated version of Canon's compact Cinema EOS camera designed for event videographers, documentarians, and independent filmmakers. This updated version provides a new continuous autofocus function for 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 EOS C100 uses the same Super 35mm Canon CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV III image processor as its big brother, the C300. 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 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.


    Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology
    This hardware upgrade provides an autofocus mode to help ensure sharp focus and smooth focus transitions. It provides a new Continuous AF (Autofocus) function for all autofocus lenses, using Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. A new AF Lock setting also lets you change the image framing while holding the desired focus. This feature is ideal for users who regularly shoot with smaller crews, who shoot moving subjects, or who want smoother, more natural-looking autofocus.

    Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology features a CMOS sensor that consists of an array of pixels that each feature two separate photodiodes. By continuously comparing their outputs during AF mode, phase-difference autofocus helps ensure non-blurred images and smooth focus transitions even when the talent and/or camera are moving. The new feature places a high priority on maintaining sharp focus while providing a natural, smooth autofocus movement with select Canon EF lenses — including newer-generation STM lenses — which offer even smoother and quieter operation.


    Continuous Recording
    The continuous, nonstop recording function allows you to create In and Out points in the footage every time the START/STOP button is pressed. At this time, the continuous recording function is compatible with Grass Valley's EDIUS Pro 7 software.
    320 to 80,000 ISO Range
    With an extended ISO range from 320 to 80,000, the EOS C100 is even more sensitive to light than it was before. This lets you shoot usable footage during low-light and night shoots, even when using available or ambient lighting as your main light source. Being able to operate under lower light levels means you can work quickly with smaller crews and resources, ideal for low-budget and independent filmmakers.
    Menu Navigation via Camera Buttons
    Internal camera menus are now controllable from buttons on the camera body. While previously a removable joystick was the only way to control the internal menus, now buttons on the rear of the camera under the built-in monitor can be used. This lets you access the menus when the side grip is removed.
    Viewfinder Magnification Location Shift
    Manually move the center of the camera's magnification viewing area to one of 25 different locations throughout the image frame using the joystick. Now camera operators can easily check focus even on subjects that are located away from the center of the image frame.
    Record Button Lock
    The Key Lock setting now makes it possible to lock all operations, including the record button. This helps to prevent accidental operation during a critical shoot by the operator inadvertently pressing a wrong button.
    Support for New Remote Controller
    Scheduled to be available around June 2014, the new versatile RC-V100 Remote Controller will provide full access to all important user functions such as start-stop, shutter/gain adjustments, zoom/focus/iris control, custom picture values, while balance, black gamma, and more. The remote can also be used to adjust various menu settings. A SETUP mode lets you customize a number of key rotary controls, as well as user procedures and operating models. The RC-V100 is powered from the connected camcorder via a 15' (5m) cable. A USB port enables the unit's firmware to be updated to support future remote-control functions.
    Enhanced Peripheral Lens Correction Support
    The firmware update adds Peripheral Illumination Correction Data for several Canon EF and Canon Cinema lenses. By maintaining even illumination from corner to corner of each image frame, Peripheral Lens Correction helps eliminate vignetting and other unevenness of light across the sensor, using specific lens characteristics such as focal length, aperture, and distance settings. Visit Canon's website for a complete listing of supported lenses.


    Super 35mm 8.3MP CMOS Sensor
    The C100's Super 35mm-sized sensor provides an angle-of-view and depth of field that equivalent to that of traditional Super 35mm film. With a native resolution of 8.3MP and a wider pixel pitch than conventional professional camcorders, the C100's sensor offers enhanced sensitivity and reduced noise in low light environments.
    DIGIC DV III Image Processor
    Designed and built by Canon for the highest HD RGB processing, the DIGIC DV III Image Processor uses proprietary circuits and architecture to deliver the highest image quality at the highest speeds, with low power consumption and minimal heat output. It processes the RGB representations that originate in the single CMOS sensor of the camera into three channels (Red, Blue, and Green) to maintain the rich resolution and clean color fidelity formerly possible only in three-chip sensor designs.
    Low Light Sensitivity
    Working together, the Super 35mm sensor and DIGIC DV III Image Processor achieve a high signal-to-noise ratio that enables recordings with great detail and dynamic range even in minimal light.
    Canon Log Gamma and Wide DR Gamma
    Canon Log records an image with subdued contrast and sharpness, which preserves a high dynamic range and presupposes color grading in post production. Canon Log Gamma emphasizes rich gradients from mid-range to highlights, resulting in 12-stops of dynamic range. At ISO 850 and above, Canon Log Gamma enables 5.3 stops of latitude above optimal exposure (and 6.7 stops below), broadening the available dynamic range in color grading.

    Wide DR Gamma yields wide dynamic range by suppressing brightness while maintaining gradations, but is designed to produce finished-looking images without requiring any color grading in post-production.
    EF Lens Mount with EF Contacts
    The C100 is fully compatible with Canon's renowned EF mount lenses. Even specialty lenses, such as Canon's 24mm f/3.5L II tilt shift lens or the 8-15mm f/4L Ultra-Wide Zoom fisheye lens, are available on the C100. When shooting with EF lenses, C100 features peripheral illumination correction, which automatically compensates for light fall-off in the corners of the image.
    Multiple Recording Modes and Frame Rates
    The EOS C100 supports AVCHD bit rates up to 24Mbps (LPCM) at a maximum resolution of 1920x1080. Frame rates of 60i, 50i, 24p, 25p, PF30, and PF24 are all available to meet the needs of your production workflow. In addition, the 60i frame rate offers reduced rolling shutter artifacts. The EOS C100 supports relay recording of long takes between dual SD cards or can write video to both cards for redundancy in the event of SD card failure. Pre REC mode buffers approximately three seconds before the tally light activates.
    Uncompress HDMI Out with Timecode
    The C100 outputs an uncompressed signal via HDMI. This signal superimposes timecode and the 2:3 pulldown marker, which means an external recorder and converter can process the HDMI output as an SDI signal. External recorders provide an instant back-up and help to streamline post-production workflows.
    Compact and Ergonomic Design
    The EOS C100 is designed with the solo shooter in mind. It is 85% smaller than the Canon C300, 14.5 ounces (410 grams) lighter, and it is based on a mobile core design that allows additional accessories to be attached depending on the situation. Strip the EOS C100 down for a "run-and-gun" style, or complement the camera with the full range of camera-mounted accessories. With a compact body, you can even shoot dual-camera 3D without an over-sized and cumbersome rig. Its light weight reduces user fatigue and allows even elaborate rigging systems to remain mobile enough for a single operator. The removable accessory hand grip rotates 360 degrees for comfortable shooting positions, while customizable hardware buttons allow the EOS C100 to fit your own personal shooting preferences.
    Removable Top Handle with XLR Inputs and Stereo Microphone
    The C100 includes a top mounted handle unit, which features two XLR connectors and a microphone shock mount. XLR connections offer a high quality audio input for professional grade microphones and facilitate 2 channel 48kHz linear PCM (24Mbps) audio recordings.
    High Resolution EVF and Integrated LCD Display
    Accurately check focus, composition, and exposure with the 1.56 million dot-equivalent 0.24" electronic viewfinder with 100% coverage. The built-in 3.5" 920k dot LCD tilts 100 degrees for flexibility when composing tough perspective shots and rotates 180 degrees to protect the screen when not in use. Use the LCD display to review footage or to view the EOS C100's waveform monitor.
    AVCHD File Based Recording to SD Cards
    The EOS C100 records video to SDHC/SDXC cards using AVCHD, a high-efficiency codec that has quickly become a standard in both the professional and consumer video markets. Maximum bit-rate is 24Mbps. Video files greater than 2GB are split into multiple files while recording, which are automatically joined together upon import using Canon Data Import. AVCHD video is widely supported across NLE systems and is the standard codec for Blu-Ray.
    Full Manual Control and Focusing Aids
    The EOS C100 offers complete manual control of each aspect of the recording process. Create and recall custom picture settings, camera functions, and display options. The camera also features several powerful and intuitive focusing aids in both the EVF and LCD monitor that make it easy to confirm critical focus distance; Peaking Modes and Magnify Focus Modes are available while in standby or while recording. Additionally, the LCD features Edge Monitor Display; green waveforms display the overall focus of the scene and red waveforms provide focus feedback of the three focus check boxes visible on the LCD monitor.
    One Shot AF and Push Auto Iris
    One-Shot AF executes focus adjustments with a dedicated button, and the Push Auto Iris button automatically adjusts the aperture of the lens to quickly and easily maintain proper exposure. Both of these functions can be accessed even when operating in manual mode.
    Built-in ND Filters
    In excessively bright environments neutral density filters are often required to avoid over exposure, without compromising desirable shutter and aperture settings. The C100 features built-in ND filters in three densities, which make for four ND configurations (OFF, 2 stops, 4 stops, 6 stops). The built-in ND filters are deployed via a manual dial.
    Remote Terminal
    Remotely control the EOS C100 via its LANC-compatible remote terminal. Remote operation allows for single-person operation even in creative rigging situations.

  • EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens

    A versatile one-lens solution for many shooting situations, the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens is a Canon L-series zoom spanning a useful wide-angle to short-telephoto range and featuring a constant f/4 maximum aperture. Complementing the flexible design is an advanced optical layout that includes one Super UD element, which reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to realize a high degree of color accuracy and clarity. Three aspherical elements are also featured, and minimize distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness. Additionally, a Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to control flare and ghosting for high contrast and neutral color fidelity.

    Balancing the refined optics, this 24-105mm f/4 also sports a ring-type USM and internal focusing mechanism to enable quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, as well as full-time manual focus override. A four-stop-effective Image Stabilizer is also used to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. Additionally, this lens is weather-sealed and has a protective fluorine coating on the exposed elements for use in trying environmental conditions.

    Standard zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 38.4-168mm equivalent focal length range.
    Constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range.
    One Super Ultra-Low Dispersion element reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color fidelity.
    Three aspherical elements minimize spherical aberrations and distortions for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
    Super Spectra coating has been applied to individual elements to minimize ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions.
    An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
    A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing design, optimized focusing algorithms, and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
    Rounded eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
    As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens is sealed against dust and moisture for working in inclement environmental conditions.

Canon C100 Mark II reviews

EOS C100 Cinema EOS Camera with Dual Pixel CMOS AF and 24-105mm f/4L Lens is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck Shooting with the C300 often, I wanted the next step up from DSLR with the ability to use the Canon lenses I was using already. I really have no complaints except I find the audio to the headphones a bit low. Image quality is amazing, LONG record times, battery life is unreal. Just a great purchase and worth every cent. If you want the next level of image, use the atomos. Frankly, using both the C100 and C300, I like the C100 ergonomics better. The autofocus works MUCH better than I expected, and is a savior in the run and gun situations I find myself in often. Viewfinder is tiny, but clear. I do wish it had a larger viewfinder, but it works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from c100 is a joy to work with Absolutely an amazing camera. It gets a lot of complaints for not having slowmo but all you have to do is set it to 60i and deinterlace the footage and bam there you go slowmo. Honestly i can't tell the difference from atomos and internal codec, unless i blow up the image. Dual pixel is great I'm glad I waited for it to be in stock instead of buying a c100 and sending it to canon. dual pixel is good but struggles to focus in low light. i thought this camera and the 24-105l lens was going to be light enough to operate with a glidecam4000. it was too heavy for me. but all in all this was an amazing camera

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love I've been in the business for 25 years -- and have used a lot of cameras, ranging from Bolex's and Arri BL's to Aatons, to Betacams, dvx1000s' etc... A couple years ago I nearly bought an fs100 but ended up hating the ergonomics. I've used the c300 several times... And this is the camera I've fallen in love with! I prefer the c100 to the c300 because of it's reduced size, and actually the placement of the monitor too. Oh -- camera mics! On the 300, I always felt like the monitor could get broken off pretty easily sitting so high. The c100 is an absolutely great camera for gun-and-run situations and produces an amazing image. The 4K sensor is the same as the c300 and c500. I also have noticed that most people think I'm shooting photos, not motion picture, so it doesn't raise eye-balls as much. A sweet bonus to the size. The codec is fine for most real-world applications and try as I might, I can't (at the moment) see a reason to buy an outboard 4:2:2 recorder. The difference just isn't there. It's an absolutely pro camera in most regards, though one thing does bug me - the inability to have timecode info easily attached to files. The included export utility works well in renaming and concatenating files (it's the way to go, vs simply copy/pasting the mts files to a hard drive which is what I initially did) but TC doesn't come along. I'm hoping to find a simple solution for that soon. I like the fact that one of the display guides is a 2:35 marker -- this camera is absolutely capable for cinema. Continuous or moementary Auto focus - is very useful in a documentary, one man situation. Camera mic sound is good, though it will pick up handling and lens noise. Lowlight capability is insane. A nice bonus is that the 'kit' lens is a top-notch lens, (not like the piece of junk that Sony included with the fs100) Battery life is great and batteries aren't enormous. Price of SD cards is essentially a non-issue. All in all -- this is the camera I've been waiting for for 25 years. Now, if someone could come up with a hack to ouput 4k... that'd be sweet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Camera Ever I have been using a canon C100 for 1 year now and I love it more every shoot. I have recently shot a full season of a web series with 2 of these cameras and they hold up extremely well. They are easy to use and very solid. I would recommend this camera to just about anyone. It's a fast camera too, so its great for more run and gun shoots as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Versatile Setup The first thing that I love about this camera is how easy and quick it is to adjust almost everything that you will need to create the perfect picture. It was very easy to create a full system around this lens and body because of the variable audio inputs along with the media that it records to. I was looking at getting the Blackmagic 4K Cinema camera but it didn't have the quick adjustments and the little amount of peripheral equipment needed to use the camera. With the Blackmagic camera, I would have had to purchase a solid state drive along with the computer equipment to read the media and also the fact that it did not come with a lens also pushed me away. So if you are looking to record live events or are filming on site that does not allow for hours of preparation to create the perfect shot, this is the camera for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best reasonably priced work camera. To start things off, I use this camera mostly for filming weddings, events, interviews, documentaries, etc. Real stuff that gets me a paycheck. It is for those purposes, that this camera excels.I work with a few other camera hounds who are absolute blackmagic fanatics, and while those camera's are great as well, they are insanely specific. You either need to be on a set or a pre-scouted and supplied location, or you need a couple grand worth of accessories to even remotely make them viable. Not with the C100, the most I slap onto it is a shotgun mic, which low and behold, it has a holder for.Major Pro's of the C100:Battery life - I run one of the larger extended batteries, and have yet to run out of energy in a single work day.Recording Codec (Data space) - While some might consider this a weakness, 9 out of 10 times, it's not. Sure, you can't get raw, or even 422 colour space out of it, but get a ninja 2 or ninja star, and you're made in the shade. However, even without those extra's the quality of the recording for the insanely small amount of space it takes, is amazing. Plus they extend it's flexibility even further with the cannon log (c-log in camera) colour profile, that means the picture comes out flat, but with the right LUT, it's gorgeous. (Head over the Abelcine, they have a few awesome home made 3D LUTs that are meant especially for the c100 and c-log, and they are superb.) But with this super compression, with 2 32GB cards in the camera, I can record all day. Something like 10 hours, they quote, but I've never needed to actually record that much in a single sitting, but I've gotten close and had no problems.Built in ND's - If you are familiar at all with videography, you know why this is awesome.Dual Pixel Autofocus - Sounds like a gimmick, and certainly has limits, but well worth the price if you do anything unscripted.Buttons - Buttons buttons buttons, a button for every feature and a feature for every button, very little you need to dig through a menu for, and certainly nothing that needs to be adjusted on the fly while shooting.Ergonomics - Very comfortable to handle and everything is in a pretty solid places. I might nitpick a couple things, but that's really just being persnickety.ConsLimited Codec - Yes, I put it here too, as great as it is, even letting us pay for an upgrade to record 422 natively would be super cool, but a deal breaker, no.Viewfinder - The viewfinder that comes built in ..... sucks ... like seriously ... sucks. But despair no more! There is a fix! Just google C-Cup C100 and thank me later.Pricey - While certainly better than a lot of other camera's for the quality, with the advent of the blackmagics and all they are capable of, I would think if they are not going to give us native 422 recording, canon should drop the price a little bit.All in all, a great camera. If you do any kind of freelance videography I highly recommend this camera. Worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic ! Having moved from shooting video with Canon's 5D Mark 2 and Mark 3, the C100 has amazing image quality from its sensor, and other features that were sorely missed on the 5D's (XLR's, built in ND filters, continuous auto focus, peaking, zebras, C-Log and other picture profiles, etc.) Unless you are doing heavy color grading, the AVCHD codec holds up really well. You can always put a Ninja on it for 4:2:2 ProRes, just 8-bit though. It feels good hand held, and easy to load it up with audio, monitor, follow focus, etc. The only reasons I did not give five stars is because the LCD screen could be better, the viewfinder is not good, and there should be some way to give some form of continuous auto exposure or at least auto-iso.
