Canon ME200S-SH Overview

The Canon ME200S-SH Multi-Purpose Camera features a locking EF mount and captures video at up to 1920 x 1080p 60 (59.94p), while supporting both NTSC and PAL broadcast frame rates. The camera incorporates a Super 35mm-sized sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range and an ISO of up to 204,800. It supports EOS Standard, Wide DR, Canon Log, and allows you to set up to six custom picture settings to protect highlight and shadow detail.

The camera body is small in size, perfect for getting the shot from a hard-to-reach space. It features a digital teleconverter that can be set to provide 2x, 4x, or 8x zoom effect. With two HD/3G-SDI outputs and a single HDMI output, the camera incorporates a genlock-in for integrating this camera into a multi-camera shoot, as well as 2.5mm stereo mini jack and a RS-422 port for control. You can power the camera using 12 VDC by either the 2-pin Phoenix connector or the built-in 4-pin XLR connector.

This small-box-sized camera is versatile and can fit into smaller spaces. You can use optional accessories to configure the camera for a variety of applications.
This is an HD camera body capable of capturing 1920 x 1080 footage at 59.94P/59.94i/50.00P/50.00i/29.97P/25.00P/23.98P.
Professional connectivity includes the HD/3G-SDI connectors and genlock input, allowing the camera to be easily integrated into a multi-camera workflow. The OSD is available on both the HDMI and the first SDI output.
The camera features a built-in filter stack including a clear filter, an ND 1/8, and an ND 1/64, as well as an IR cut filter, this allows you to choose to use the IR cut filter much as you would choose from the built-in ND filters.
The camera features built-in One-Shot AF, and Push Auto Iris. The One-Shot AF assists in focusing adjustment with a dedicated button. Focus status can be confirmed on an external monitor. Push Auto Iris automatically adjusts the aperture of the lens to quickly and easily maintain proper exposure, even in situations where lighting changes frequently.
The locking cinema EF mount is compatible with EF mount lenses and provides a stronger attachment to the camera than a standard EF mount. The front of the camera features a 12-pin lens terminal enabling lens connectivity with EF mount CINE-SERVO lenses or 2/3" broadcast lenses with an optional third party adapter.
Other calibration functions include auto black balance, color bar, test tone, assign buttons, peripheral illumination correction, focus limit, crop for EF-S Lens, scan reverse, flicker reduction, noise reduction, time display, hour meter.
The camera supports custom picture settings for highlight and shadow detail protection. These settings include selections for EOS Standard, Wide DR, and Canon Log gamma. The camera also supports up to six custom scene settings.

With the ability to shoot at ISO Settings Up to 204,800 this camera should compare well with the A7SII. However we are not aware of any side-by-side analysis of these two cameras to truly compare them.

question

Does the 3.5mm audio input jack allow for a 3.5mm to dual XLR male adapter for 2 channels of audio?
Asked by: Anonymous
^What Dennis said. And I will add that if you are doing post production there are tools in some LNE programs where you can fill the right channel with the left channel, to make the L & R audio output balanced.

question

is it same image quality as c100 m2?same af performance?what is the battery life per charge?
Asked by: Serdar
The basic specs for the sensor of this camera and the C100 Mark II are Super35 and 9.84 MP. The ME200S-SH does have twice the high ISO performance at 204,800. The image quality should be comparable. The ME200S-SH does have Dual Pixel focus and we assume that it has the same outstanding AF performance as other Canon Dual Pixel Auto Focus equipped AF camera. You also focus using the one shot button on the camera or with the Canon RC-V100 Remote Controller. Lastly, this camera is meant really for permanent installations and thus does not have a battery internally or directly attached. It takes power from an external battery or an AC power adapter.

Will the 3.5mm audio input power an xlr ...

Will the 3.5mm audio input power an xlr microphone with the correct adaptor? I would be interested in using a Rode NTG3 with this camera
Asked by: Greg
It will not. While it is possible to adapt a Microphone with an XLR connection to a camera with a 3.5mm audio input, that microphone will need to be battery powered. If the battery requires phantom power, such as the NTG3, it will not be able to power the microphone. Phantom Power is not carried through 3.5mm connections.
