Canon C100 Mark II overview

  • 1Description

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.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology
The 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 102,400 ISO Range
With an extended ISO range from 320 to 102,400, the EOS C100 Mark II is even more sensitive to light than its predecessor. 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
Super 35mm 8.3MP CMOS Sensor
The 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 sensor offers enhanced sensitivity and reduced noise in low light environments.
DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor
Designed and built by Canon for the highest HD RGB processing, the DIGIC DV 4 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 4 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 camera 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. When shooting with EF lenses, the camera features peripheral illumination correction, which automatically compensates for light fall-off in the corners of the image.
Multiple Recording Modes and Frame Rates in AVCHD
The camera supports AVCHD bit rates up to 24 Mbps (LPCM) at a maximum resolution of 1920x1080. Frame rates of 59.94p, 50p, 59.94i, 50i, 24p, 25p, PF30, and PF24 are all available to meet the needs of your production workflow. It 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.
Multiple Recording Modes and Frame Rates in MP4
The C100 Mark II supports recording in 1920 x 1080p recording to MP4, at multiple frame rates, and also supports 720p and 640 x 360 frame sizes.
Uncompressed HDMI Out with Timecode & Canon Log LUT Support
Outputting an uncompressed signal via HDMI. This signal can superimpose 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. The HDMI output also supports Canon Log LUT output.
Compact and Ergonomic Design
Designed with the solo shooter in mind it is 85% the size of the Canon C300, and it is based on a mobile core design that allows additional accessories to be attached depending on the situation. Strip the camera 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 camera to fit your own personal shooting preferences.
Removable Top Handle with XLR Inputs and Stereo Microphone
Including 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 (24 Mbps) audio recordings.
High Resolution EVF and Integrated OLED Display
Accurately check focus, composition, and exposure with the 1.23 million dot-equivalent 0.45" electronic viewfinder with 100% coverage. The built-in 3.5" 1.23MP equivalent OLED panel 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 camera's waveform monitor.
AVCHD or MP4 File Based Recording to SD Cards
The camera 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 24 Mbps. 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.

The camera records using the MP4 codec, and can record in fast motion (25% faster) or slow motion (40% slower) in MP4 recording mode.
Full Manual Control and Focusing Aids
The camera 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 waveform display the overall focus of the scene and red waveform 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. It 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 camera via its LANC-compatible remote terminal. Remote operation allows for single-person operation even in creative rigging situations.

    Canon C100 Mark II reviews

    EOS C100 Mark II Cinema EOS Camera with Dual Pixel CMOS AF (Body Only) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5D User? Do not delay in buying this! Okay, so, no, there is no 4K. Not even 4.2.2. No SDI outs. No this or that. But, if you use 5D's and you are ready to step up but and are hesitating, don't delay any longer. If you can't quite afford the C300, and don't like the Sony Color Space, buy this camera. When you have more cash this C100 can become your B Cam, and believe me, once you see how nice this looks vs your 5D's you want to ditch them as quickly as you can. If I had the money I'd replace all my 5D's with Cinema Cameras. I LOVE the look of it. I also love how compact it becomes. Do it! Do it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't know why I would ever shoot on a DSLR again We got into filmmaking when DSLR's were hitting the market with video. Everyone said these little cameras would be great to use. Fast forward a few years, and the market is saturated with them and camera prices all around are dropping. We stuck it out with a GH4 which took great quailty video for some time. Then we had an opportunity to rent one these bad boys. HOLY COW. There is something to be said for using a proper camera out in the field. This thing is in all in one beast. Now when I see wedding filmmakers using sony a7s' or dlsrs that are not a proper camera, I feel for them. So we bought one of these and never looked back. The joy of using this camera is unmatched. 10/10 would buy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industry Standard for Amfessional Video I've been using either consumer equipment or DSLRs to record my videos and so finally stepping up to the EOS C100 Mark II is a pleasure. So much nicer to use a video camera that takes photos also instead of a photo camera that records video also. The compromises are on the photography side. I've only recorded one video with it so far, but I know this is where I want to be. I can't wait for an event in a lower light environment to test out its capabilities. The Mark II is supposed to be better at low light than the Mark I, and I bought a low light, f2.8, lens as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Camera Coming from the DSLR world I was a bit hesitant on buying the C100 Mark II. That all changed the first time I used the camera. I'm in love with it. From the built in ND filters, XLR audio inputs and ease of use, this has transformed my shooting style. I shoot mostly for the web, I don't need 4K right now and the picture this camera puts out is fantastic. I love the ability to change the picture profiles and I mostly shoot a flat image and do a bit of color grading. This is a workhorse of a camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ditch the DSLR and Embrace Cinema Style If you're someone who was been using DSLRs, I would recommend making the move up to the Cinema series. The ergonomics and form factor are a huge plus. Everything from the rotatable OLED screen, to grip handle, viewfinder, XLR inputs, and AUTO FOCUS! It's fantastic that we can now regain the traditional features we lost when we switched to DSLR for cinematic image quality. Plus 1080 60p now! The two biggest improvements from my 5d Mark III are lowlight and the auto focus. For documentary or wedding type shooting this features will change your life. My only regret is that I couldn't afford the C300! Happy shooting. Only cons so far are a somewhat cheaper build feel than and a sluggish clip review process.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great versatile camera As a professional filmmaker, I really enjoy working with the Canon C100 Mark ii. Having physical buttons on the camera is very convenient, especially the 3 ND filters. You can quickly make adjustments using one of two joysticks near either hand. The stereo LCD screen is a major bonus from the Mark i. The image is great, however my one critique of the camera is that it doesn't shoot 4K. It has a 4K sensor, but doesn't shoot 4K. For the majority of us, who's work will appear only online, this is not the end of the world. Would also be nice to have more pre set coluor profiles as there are only 2 or 3. Otherwise, it's a great - easy to use camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why I went with the C100 mk2 rather than the A7sii Ergonomics. WOW. The grip is legitimate. The three record buttons will surely come in handy, especially when in situations where the rig is on a Glidecam and I don't have both hands free. The top handle has been awesome as well, and really helps for low shots. Dual Pixel AF: CLUTCH. Being able to constantly track my subject while using a stabilizer while my lens is wide open is great. I often don't have my subject in the middle of my compositions, so I will use the AF to get them in focus, turn AF off, frame them how I want them, and keep that distance. Works everytime. LCD Screen: While it is good, I found myself using the Small HD 502 much more due to the fact it's a lot bigger than the camera's LCD. Much easier to pull focus and frame with the Small HD. Assignable Buttons: GAME CHANGER. I have slow motion assigned to a single button so I don't have to go into the menus to enable it. Auto Focus, peaking, zebras, Wave Forms are all set to help during shoots. Audio Inputs: XLR Inputs are huge. Being able to have a lavaliere on my talent and capture/monitor the audio directly from the camera is beyond appreciated. I now have more field recorders I can use since I can plug mics directly into my camera. Viewfinder: Though I haven't used it much, I definitely see it being handy in environments where the sun may be an issue. Battery Life: One of the main reasons why I decided to go with this camera over the A7S ii. I get AT LEAST 3 and 1/2 hours from and 1/2 hours from EACH battery. I'm typically filming weddings for at least 12 hour days and can get through the day with two batteries. Lovely. Dual Card Slot: Being able to record, with no time limits, is foreign to me coming from 12 minute limit DSLRs. I love it. Also having the ability to record to both cards at the same time for a back up situation. Low Light Performance: Has been great, I've even recorded up to 10,000 ISO at 60p and had usable footage! ND FILTERS: 2,4 and 6 stops of ND Filters.Awesome

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not the best thing on the market but still a good deal. I just bought a C100 Mark 2 and an Atomos Ninja 2 package about 2 months ago and I absolutely love it. I primarily use it to shoot with my 5DMK3 and A7S2 for shooting weddings and other run and gun events. I think it's a great purchase even now in late 2017 especially at the current price point. Its ease of use make it so well suited for fast paced shooting. I'm able to get nice looking images even in testing conditions at outdoor locations using C-Log and 4.2.2. recording on the Ninja, just have to be careful of exposure. Not the best thing on the market but still a good deal.
