Canon EOS C100

The EOS C100 sports the Super 35mm Canon CMOS Sensor and Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor of the C300 and records at 24Mbps using an AVCHD codec for easy integration in existing production workflows.

Pricing varies and is based upon the specific model and accessories ordered.


Leave No Story Untold. The Canon EOS C100 Digital Video Camera is the latest addition to the Cinema EOS family, bringing together the renowned technology of Canon CMOS sensors, DIGIC DV III Image Processor, and EF lens compatibility in a smaller, lighter body. Modular and compatible with a host of Canon and third-party accessories, the EOS C100 brings true cinema quality to independent event videographers and video production organizations.

  • 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 new 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.

     


    Wide DR Gamma is based on Rec. 709 and is optimized for monitor output or situations requiring less color grading in post-production. Wide DR Gamma exhibits high dynamic range, suppressing brightness while maintaining seamless gradations. A wide dynamic range of 800% preserves latitude for post-production work, but Wide DR Gamma is designed for perfect color "out-of-the-box."

    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.

     

    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.
    Compact and Ergonomic Designn
    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.
