Fully Compatible with New & Existing Canon EF-Mount Lenses.
A major aspect of the creative filmmaking potential of the EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera is its compatibility with the full range of more than 100 Canon EF and EF-S photographic lenses (including specialty tilt-shift and fisheye models) and Canon’s 4K CN-E Cinema prime and zoom lenses, including the “ENG-style” Canon CINE-SERVO and COMPACT-SERVO zooms. Improved EF lens communication capabilities of the EOS C200B camera provide the display of CN-E Cinema lens T-values, compatibility with Dual-Pixel CMOS AF, lens metadata acquisition, and chromatic aberration correction.
T-Value Displayed When Using EF Lenses.
For those users who are accustomed to seeing the T-value displayed when using EF lenses for digital cinema, it is possible to switch the camera to display either the F-value or the T-value. This is important for those that shoot on movie sets and prefer to know how much light is passing through the opening of the lens and actually making it to the sensor. T-values are the traditional measure of light reaching the sensor in video production, while F-stop is the measure of light in still photography. The ability to see the F-stop helps those transitioning from still to video shooting.
Flexibility For Custom Shooting Situations.
The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera comes as a standalone camera body, excluding the built-in electronic viewfinder, LCD monitor, handle and handgrip accessories that come with the EOS C200. This allows the user the flexibility to customize the camera with a wide range of accessories to fit their specific needs.The camera’s small form factor allows it to be used in tighter spaces and mounted into a variety of gyro-stabilized housings, robotic camera pedestals, on a crane or drone, remotely operated for surveillance activities, hidden inside a racecar or helicopter, or other hard-to-reach locations where the camera is not immediately accessible.
Dual DIGIC DV 6 Image Processors.
The two on-board DiG!C DV 6 image processors allow for the recording of 1,800 horizontal TV lines in 4K. The DiG!C 6 is Canon’s sixth-generation Image processor that uses proprietary technology, allowing users to achieve high performance and creative freedom when acquiring images.
Over Sampling HD Processing.
The EOS C200B features Over Sampling HD Processing*, a high-image-quality signal processing system that satisfies a broad spectrum of video production needs by effectively utilizing the abundant powers of 4K image expression in 2K (2048 x 1080) / Full HD (1920 x 1080) recording.
ISO Range Of 100 To 102,400 Supported.
The EOS C200B supports an ISO range of between 160 and 25,600. That range expands to between 100 to 102,400 when the “Extended Sensitivity” is set on the camera. This range of ISO settings provide the user with more creative freedom. Low ISO values allow the user to use large iris settings and shallow depth of field, even in scenes of bright light. The higher ISO values provide the user with more flexibility in dimly lit situations. A 54db gain setting can also be set to achieve high sensitivity in dimly lit scenes.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology.
Each pixel in the camera’s CMOS sensor is configured with two photodiodes. Two independent image signals can then be detected at each photosite. By implementing phase-difference AF, smooth focusing is accomplished using Canon EF lenses with much higher speed and accuracy than was possible with previous technologies- a major advantage during single-operator shooting.
Continuous AF & Face Detection AF With All Canon EF Lenses.
The EOS C200B has one-touch AF (with a push-button) and continuous AF within approximately 80% of the overall image area. Face Detection AF is another autofocus mode that can track a person’s face in the frame and maintain focus on them. To further fine tune AF performance, the EOS C200B offers the ability to set the AF tracking speed (up to 10 steps) and sensitivity (up to 7 steps) to match the user’s preference.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF With Touch Focus.
Achieve faster focus with the included Touch Screen LCD Monitor (LM-V1), a new accessory with touch screen support. Tapping the area of the frame quickly brings the image into focus. This ability to choose the subject for focusing with the tap of the screen helps to make focusing intuitive.
Dual Pixel Focus Guide.
The camera’s Dual Pixel Focus Guide takes advantage of Dual Pixel CMOS AF data to display focus assist information on the screen. The innovative user interface applies Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology to provide the user focus feedback. This lowers the barrier for focusing, especially when shooting in 4K, which requires strict focus accuracy.
The camera also has a focus pre-set feature. Separate predetermined focus points can be selected and when the SET button is pushed, the lens will move focus from one mark to the other. This is especially useful when focusing in scenes with multiple subjects.
A newly developed menu function has been added for Auto-Focus tuning, allowing easy access to camera and lens settings. The AF Speed Tuning function allows users to set the lens drive speed to any of 10 steps. AF subject tracking characteristics can also be varied and set to any of 7 steps, allowing the user to select the appropriate responsiveness when changes have occurred in the subject.
Full HD 120P / 100P Slow Motion Recording.
The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera supports high-speed recording in Full HD at 120p/100p fps to enable additional creative freedom for slow motion replays and other special effects. It’s capable of a maximum 120fps, realizing even greater emotion in visual expression.
Only CFast 2.0™ with VPG130 is Supported.
CFast 2.0 Cards with a VPG130 rating must be used when recording with the Cinema RAW Light format. Designed for high-end video recording, the VPG130 specification enables a sustained capture of video streams up to 130 MB/s.
Canon Log and Canon Log 3.
The EOS C200B supports both Canon Log and Canon Log 3 Gamma. Canon Log is designed to reproduce, in post production, the entire tonal range that the CMOS image sensor is capable of. Log workflow provides the user with higher dynamic range, more highlight and shadow retention, and more flexibility in grading.
RC-V100 Remote Control Support.
Camera settings can be accessed and controlled from a distance using Canon’s RC-V100 Remote Controller. The RC-V100 plugs into the EOS C200B through the remote terminal on the rear panel. This optional accessory allows image quality adjustments and camera operations to be set from a distance.
Live Feed From The Camera Can Be Displayed.
A live feed from the camera can be displayed simultaneously from multiple connected devices accessing the Browser Remote. One device can be used to check focus, while the client or director can monitor the live action from another compatible device.
