  • HD Digital Video Camera
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • DIGIC DV III Image Processor
  • 24 Mbps AVCHD Codec Recording
  • Enhanced Autofocusing Capability:
  • Autofocus mode to help ensure sharp focus and smooth focus transitions
  • Provides a Continuous AF (Autofocus) Function for all autofocus Lenses, using Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology
  • AF Lock setting also lets you change the image framing while holding the desired focus
  • These critical focusing capabilities are designed to help reduce out of focus video while providing for smooth focus transitions and assist users when operating with small crews
  • Targeted at users who regularly shoot with smaller crews, who shoot moving subjects, or who want smoother, more natural-looking autofocus. Specific markets include documentary filmmakers, electronic newsgathering, sports productions, weddings and similar special events, nature and wildlife, and many others
  • Dual Pixel CMOS:
  • EOS C100 camera with 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
  • 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
  • After this modification, the EOS C100 camera's Continuous AF function active area represents 20% of the image vertically and 25% horizontally, yielding a very large, centrally located autofocus zone
  • The AF lock mode allows you to set focus and hold it, allowing you to change framing while maintaining the original point of focus
  • Fast, Smooth AF during Video Capture:
  • Set-up menu offers two options for "AF Mode" - One-Shot AF and Continuous Autofocus
  • The AF Lock function can optionally be set to one of the camera's assignable buttons
  • During shooting, you simply press this button to lock the focus preventing the camera from refocusing, and then press it again to re-enable continuous AF
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology helps provide smooth and consistent autofocus, so that focus transitions are natural looking and that subjects can remain focused even as they move
  • The compatibility of Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Canon EF autofocus lenses combines outstanding optical tools with a wide range of creative options
  • By using the Contrast AF system to supplement the EOS C100 camera's new Dual Pixel CMOS AF the camera can determine which direction to initially drive the lens helping to result in reduced focused hunting
  • Faster One-Shot AF Mode:
  • Combination of Contrast AF and Dual Pixel CMOS AF helps ensure that the EOS C100 camera's autofocus system initially drives the lens in the correct direction resulting in faster focus up acquisition
  • Upgraded EOS C100 camera will focus twice as fast as an unmodified camera, with a more natural look with no focus overshooting
  • Because the current One-Shot AF mode uses only Contrast AF, movements can sometimes be jerky with overshoot errors
  • Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor:
  • The EOS C100 is equipped with the advanced 16:9 Super 35mm Canon CMOS sensor. The large sensor format opens up cinematic vistas and permits a shallow depth-of-field for arresting images. The 8.3 megapixel sensor and its fine pixel pitch permit greater sensitivity in low light while minimizing noise. The EOS C100 captures Red, Green, and Blue channels independently for Full HD 1920x1080 video. The resulting picture features the color and image quality of a three-chip camera with a single sensor. The optimized pixel count allows the camera to avoid additive processing as a result of skipping lines during capture; sensor sensitivity is maintained and aliasing or other degradation of the image is prevented.
  • Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor:
  • Designed and built by Canon for the highest quality HD RGB processing, the DIGIC DV III Image Processor uses proprietary circuits and architecture to deliver exceptional image quality at the highest speeds, with low power consumption and minimal heat output. It processes the RGB image data?originating from 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.
  • Exceptional Low Light Sensitivity and Wide Dynamic Range:
  • The EOS C100 incorporates the first Canon CMOS sensor designed specifically for high frame rate motion pictures, offering not only high resolution and shallow depth-of-field but also high sensitivity with low noise. Working together, Canon's Super 35mm sensor and DIGIC DV III Image Processor achieve a remarkably high signal-to-noise ratio that enables recordings with great detail and dynamic range even in minimal light. Users will appreciate the camera's 12 stops of dynamic range at all ISO speed settings from 320 to 20,000.
  • Canon Log Gamma and Wide DR Gamma:
  • Canon Log Gamma preserves shadow and highlight detail for maximum editing and grading in post-production without degrading image quality; contrast and sharpness are subdued with characteristics similar to negative film. Canon Log Gamma emphasizes rich gradients from mid-range to highlights and realizes 12-stops of Dynamic Range (DR). At ISO850, 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.
  • Multiple Recording Modes and Frame Rates:
  • The EOS C100 supports shooting AVCHD bit rates up to 24Mbps (LPCM) at a maximum resolution of Full HD, 1920x1080. Frame rates of 60i, PF30, PF24, 24p, 50i, and 25p are all available for any number of production workflows. In addition, the 60i frame rate offers reduced rolling shutter artifacts for cleaner, more realistic images. 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 3 seconds before the tally light activates, instilling confidence that you have captured your take as you planned it.
  • 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. Built-in ND filters expand control over exposure, depth-of-field, and motion capture. Manual control of video and audio capture gives you the power to fully control what you capture.
  • The EOS C100 is equipped with 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. The EOS C100 also features the Edge Monitor Display on the LCD Monitor; 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.
  • Compact and Ergonomic Design:
  • The EOS C100 is designed with the single user in mind. It is 85% smaller than the Canon C300, 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 shoot dual-camera 3D without an outsized and cumbersome rig. Its light weight reduces user fatigue and allows even elaborate rigging systems to be mobile enough for a "crew of one." 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.
  • One-Shot AF and Push Auto Iris:
  • One-Shot AF assists in focusing adjustment with a dedicated button. Focus status is confirmed on the viewfinder and 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. Run-and-Gun videographers and documentary filmmakers will appreciate the ability to start rolling without a protracted routine to establish optimum exposure values.
  • High Resolution EVF and Integrated LCD Display:
  • Accurately assess focus, composition, and exposure with the 1.56 million dot-equivalent .24" Electronic Viewfinder with 100% coverage. The built-in 3.5-inch 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.
  • Removable Hand Grip with XLR Inputs and Built-in Stereo Microphone:
  • The EOS C100 accepts a removable hand grip unit with built-in tally lights, stereo microphone, and dual XLR audio inputs for stereo recording. Audio is captured in 16-bit 48 kHz linear PCM format and each channel allows for independent gain adjustment. Attach a second microphone in the integrated mount, or power a wide range of audio capture devices with the dual XLR inputs with phantom power supply.
  • AVCHD File Based Recording to SD Cards:
  • EOS C100 records video to SD cards using AVCHD, a high-efficiency codec that has quickly become the 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. The EOS C100 supports a variety of output media.
  • HDMI Out With Time Code:
  • In addition to recording to SD cards, the EOS C100 can output video via HDMI to an external display for monitoring purposes or to a separate, dedicated recorder. Time Code is superimposed on data output via HDMI, making it easy to sync additional video or audio to your footage in post-production.
