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.
