The EOS C100 has the advanced 16:9 Super 35mm Canon CMOS image sensor, our DiGiC DV III Image Processor and offers exceptional low light performance and wide dynamic range. It features a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and a tiltable, integrated LCD display.
The EOS C100 makes shooting a pleasure thanks to its small footprint, modular design, one-shot AF, push auto iris and features such as a removable handgrip with XLR inputs and built-in stereo microphone as well as broad support for accessories. It 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.
Post-ProductionWith the EOS C100 you can output video with timecode via HDMI or record video to SD cards using a high-efficiency AVCHD codec. 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 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.
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. Operability and customization make the EOS C100 an ideal camera for one-person operation while providing expanded professional capabilities such as HDMI output with embedded Time Code, support for external recorders, remote operation, and complete manual control over both video and audio recording.
Pair the powerful and portable EOS C100 with the full range of Canon EF, EF-S and EF Cinema lenses, from fish-eye to macro to super telephoto, and make this expanded vista your new starting point on your cinematic adventure.
Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor
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
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."
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 Designn
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
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.
Remotely control the EOS C100 via its LANC-compatible remote terminal. Remote operation allows for single-person operation even in creative rigging situations.
