Canon C200 Cinema overview

  • 1Description

Canon's EOS C200 EF Cinema Camera features a built-in EVF, 4" LCD screen, top handle, Super 35mm CMOS sensor, and Dual Pixel Autofocus. The EF lens mount on the EOS C200 offers compatibility not only with Canon's existing broad range of DSLR lenses but also with their line of EF-mount CN-E cinema prime and zoom lenses. The Super 35mm sensor is paired with Canon's Dual DIGIC DV 6 image processor, allowing it to capture and record up to 4K DCI resolution.

The C200 can also record Canon's Cinema RAW Light internally via its single CFast card slot. The camera also incorporates two SD card slots for recording 4K UHD/HD MP4 video. A built-in EVF enables the camera to maintain a small footprint when you shoot. However, the included removable 4" LCD screen as well as the included top handle and camera grip make this camera versatile for larger shoots. You can output video via the camera's SDI output, and the built-in XLR connectors provide two channels of audio at line, mic, and mic+48V level. A built-in Ethernet connector provides input/output control.

Main Features

Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor
Modeled on the Super 35mm motion picture film standard, the Canon CMOS sensor has an active image size of 24.4 x 13.5mm. It features 4096 x 2160 resolution to deliver Cine 4K images, as well as supporting Ultra HD (3840 x 2160), and Full HD (1920 x 1080).
Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology
Provides 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.
Dynamic Range, ISO Range
The C200 features a dynamic range of approximately 13 stops, and an ISO range of 160 to 25,600. You can also select an expanded ISO range of 100 to 102,400. It supports Wide DR Gamma, Canon Log and Canon Log 3.
Dual Canon DIGIC DV 6 Image Processor
The camera features Dual DIGIC DV 6 processors to handle the internal data processing.
Ultra-High-Resolution EVF
The EOS C200 features a built-in 0.46", 1.23 MP color EVF and 100% field of view coverage for comfortable viewing and accurate judgment of composition, focus, and color. The angle of the viewfinder is adjustable for additional user comfort.
4" LCD Touch Screen Camera Grip and Top Handle
Included with the C200 is a removable 4" Touch Screen LCD viewfinder. Also included with the C200 is a camera control handgrip as well as a removable top handle.
Rich Audio Controls
Built directly into the C200 are two XLR audio inputs with +48V phantom power, and a 3.5mm microphone terminal is also built into the camera. Audio is recorded uncompressed in 16-bit PCM format at 48 kHz for high fidelity sound. Both XLR inputs as well as the mic terminal have the option for automatic as well as manual gain control.
Canon Cinema RAW Light
This codec allows you to record raw data internally to a CFast 2.0 card via the camera's single CFast card slot. The CFast card slot enables capturing 4K DCI in Canon's Cinema RAW Light format.
MP4 Recording

    Canon C200 Cinema reviews

    EOS C200 EF Cinema Camera is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Possibilities, depends on the firmware update So much about this camera is right. The color science, the auto focus and Canon build quality. However, what we need is a 4.2..2 10 bit codec and the ability to output both this codec and the 4k 60 raw output to an external recorder. A single cFast slot is not a practical or affordable workflow. If the firmware gives us a 4.2.2 10bit and the ability to output 4k 60p raw to an external recorder, I believe this will be one the great selling cameras of all time. Without these it is just another example of why so many loyal canon shooters have had to go with other companies cameras.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome upgrade to existing Cinema EOS line I own the first generation C300, as well as 1st and 2nd gen C100s - this camera blows them all out of the water. The picture quality is amazing, and the latitude during post is awesome. The camera is extremely forgiving and outputs great images. There are a few downsides - The weight... this thing is noticeably heavier than the C100, but on-par with the C300. Startup time - It's around 7-10 seconds, which is not ideal for run and gun-type situations. LCD screen / top handle - it takes too much time to piece the camera together.� Overall, this is a great camera and a welcomed step up from the C300 / C100.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use and an excellent raw codec This camera is really for someone comfortable with a raw workflow. The lack of other codecs to avoid transcode are a pain if that is what you need for the work you do. But. �The raw will soon be editable directly in Premiere and for now is useable right into DaVinci either for CC and conversion to PR444 or just get straight to cutting. �Image is excellent. DR excellent. Camera is lightweight. Battery life good and Auto Focus features top of the class. �So if you travel light, solo or minimal crew this camera produces an end result that looks way above it's price point. CFast cards are not cheap (yet) but 256GB give you 34 minutes each. �And for this type of image and workflow you are comparing more to something like Red which is pricier for the media and way bulkier a camera in use.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A near perfect camera... After seeing the early reviews of the C200 and its beautiful raw image, I decided to sell my C300 Mark II. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned.� While the C200 has nice ergonomics, amazing autofocus and a great raw image, its 8 bit 4:2:0 codec is unacceptable for a modern $7500 cinema camera. In my experience the 8 bit image was surprisingly soft and produced heavy aliasing on numerous occasions.�I didn't think it would be an issue but it was. With the Raw workflow being very cumbersome, it's just not feasible for a lot of the paid work I do.� After trying the Panasonic EVA1 and C200 side by side it became apparent just how inferior Canon's 8 bit image is. The EVA1 blew it away and also held its own against the Canon Raw image. While I much prefer the ergonomics, menu system and autofocus of the C200, the image quality was ultimately what won.� Sadly I am one of many who has decided to move on from Canon for the time being. They make some great products but their ethics and self crippling of their own line finally became too frustrating to support. I'm sure the C300 MKIII/C400 will fulfill the potential this camera had but at at least double the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No 4k raw output Camera specs look great, but 4k workflow is greatly compromised with only single card cfast recording for 4k. Card will need to be changed every few minutes and storage will get quite expensive. Also, no 4.2.2 10 bit codec? The camera has great capabilities, but omitted these 2 features that are standard on the competition.
    Date published: 2017-10-14
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but 8 bit! Camera is good it self, except 4k 8 bit limit. Many people talking about go with URSA mini because of 8 bit limitation. I bought it but all friends are saying disappointed with Canon C200.
    Date published: 2017-11-09
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Amazing I have been using Canon pro equipment for almost 25 years. This is an amazing camera, so why only two stars? The 4k 60p raw (c lite) ability of the C200 is exactly what I need. However, without the ability to output the data to an external SSD I have no opportunity to make use of the camera's feature. C fast 2.0 cards to feed the internal recording are extremely expensive ($350 for 128g). 4k C lite burns through 128 g in 15 minutes, which presents three huge problems. One, I would need to buy 12 cards ($4,200) to get through an average shooting day (3 hrs). Two, the 15mins of record time considers perfect card management with no waste, which never happens. And three, with only one c fast slot, interviews would have to be paused every 12-15 minutes to change cards. Pausing an interview as the subject gets to the emotion of the story. missing the best moment while shooting a sporting event, or breaking an actor's concentration to cut and change cards every few minutes are items that yield this great camera almost useless. This camera has amazing features and Canon build quality, but won't be a usable tool without allowing the best features to output to an external SSD.
    Date published: 2017-10-07
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from nope... This dog won't hunt - color data is weak, and the RAW is not usable unless you've got a key to Lucasfilms rendering farm.� The touchscreen is great - put it on the C100 and be done with this.� Wedding guys will love it (for half the price)...� I guess we're still stuck with FS7 menu wheel troubles.� (and the new Panasonic is even worse than this thing)� Good luck INDIES!
