Cinema EOS C200 Overview

The new EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema production cameras bring the performance of the Cinema EOS system to a wide range of shooters looking for high quality digital imaging at an affordable price.

The cameras are able to record internal 4K RAW to a CFast™ 2.0 card in our new Cinema RAW Light format without compromising detail, as well as 4K UHD and Full HD in MP4 format to SD cards. The 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm CMOS sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, full compatibility with Canon EF-mount lenses, and HDR capability help make both cameras ideal for film, documentary and television production, corporate and event videography, and newsgathering. The EOS C200 includes a built-in electronic viewfinder, a 4-inch touch screen LCD monitor, a versatile handle and ergonomic handgrip. The EOS C200B comes as a standalone camera body, excluding the built-in electronic viewfinder, LCD monitor, handle and handgrip. This allows the user the flexibility to customize the camera with a wide range of accessories to fit their specific needs. The EOS C200B's small form factor allows it to be used in tighter spaces, and more easily attached to a gimbal or drone. The EOS C200 and EOS C200B cameras provide a multitude of features helping to deliver outstanding image quality, performance and versatility.

The EOS C200 Digital Cinema Camera is a “ready-to-go” production camera, right out of the box. The camera comes with a built-in electronic viewfinder, along with a 4-inch Touch Screen LCD Monitor (LM-V1), Camera Grip (GR-V1), Handle Unit (HDU-2) and Battery Charger (CG-A20)- all helping make the EOS C200 ideal for single operator shooting applications including film, documentary and television production, as well as corporate video and event videography work and newsgathering.

Full HD 120P/100P Slow Motion Recording Support

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.

Canon 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm CMOS Sensor

The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera integrates an 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor that supports 4K (DCI) recording with a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. The camera fully utilizes the image data delivered by this 4K CMOS sensor to also enable Over Sampling HD Processing for 2K (DCI) and Full HD1080/60p recording.

Each pixel in this CMOS imaging sensor also maintains a wide pixel pitch that maximizes the amount of light that falls on to each photo site, thus enhancing the EOS C200B camera’s sensitivity while also minimizing noise and supporting ISO speeds of up to 102,400 for extreme low-light imaging. This sensor also reduces data-readout resulting in a reduction in rolling-shutter artifacts.

Dual DiG!C DV 6 Image Processors

The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera features our newly developed dual DiG!C DV 6 image processors, which powerfully process high-resolution image data.

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 with Touch Focus+

Achieve faster focus with the optional 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 Dual Pixel Focus Guide presents the user with a rectangle in which to focus the subject. The rectangle turns green when the subject is in focus. If the subject is out of focus the box will turn gray and the arrows will indicate which way to adjust the lens to regain focus.

Internal 4K RAW Recording with New Cinema RAW Light

The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera features Canon's newly developed Cinema RAW Light, a 4K RAW recording file format offering a smaller file size compared to our standard RAW*1 files, while maintaining the same high resolution, high color reproducibility, and wide dynamic range data to provide dramatically greater freedom in grading and compositing.

Cinema Raw Light

Cinema RAW Light files are about 1/3 to 1/5 the size of our standard RAW files. The smaller file size and reduced bit rate speeds up data transfer and allows internal recording to CFast™ cards.

The reduced file size also helps users extend storage capacity and transfer files on a network more easily. The high bit depth of Cinema RAW Light (10bit/12bit*2) maximizes retention of color and dynamic range information, which is especially critical in HDR production.
*2 12bit for 4K/30p and under, 10bit for 4K/60p and 50p. Each bit is efficiency optimized in consideration of visual properties.

Cinema RAW Light files can be transcoded to other commonly used file formats, such as DPX or ProRes for later editing and online delivery using Canon's CRD software.

Simultaneous Recording

4K video can be recorded to a CFast™ 2.0 card, while recording 2K proxy video to an SD card. The smaller file size of the 2K proxy file allows for easier editing.
