EOS C200 / EOS C200B: Image Quality

CINEMA EOS SYSTEM

IMAGE QUALITY

High Resolution imaging for 4K and HDR video shooting

The new EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras incorporate advanced imaging features to help ensure outstanding image quality for a wide range of productions.

8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm CMOS Sensor

The EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras integrate 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 cameras fully utilize the image data delivered by this 4K CMOS sensor to also enable Over Sampling HD Processing for 2K (DCI) and Full HD 1080/60p 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 C200 and 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 time, resulting in a reduction in rolling-shutter artifacts.

DUAL DiG!C DV 6 IMAGE PROCESSORS

The EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras feature 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 DIGIC 6 is Canon’s sixth-generation Image processor that uses proprietary technology, allowing users to achieve high performance and creative freedom when acquiring images.

Iso Range of 100 to 102,400 Supported

The EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras support 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. The 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

The EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera features our newly developed dual DiG!C DV 6 image processors, which powerfully process high-resolution image data.

Continuous AF+ and Face Detection AF+ with all Canon EF Lenses*

The EOS C200 and EOS C200B have 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 C200 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 optional Touch Screen LCD Monitor (LM-V1), a new accessory (included with the C200) 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 even more 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.

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.

AF Tuning+

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.

In-Camera ND Filter

The EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras feature in-camera ND filters to help save production time and help increase shooting versatility without the need to change filters. The internal ND filters are selected with the ND FILTER + and - buttons on the left side of the camera.

The camera uses an internal, motorized ND assembly consisting of two rotating disks with glass ND filters between the rear of the lens and the front of the sensor. This combination of ND filters allows 5 steps of neutral density. In normal mode 2, 4 and 6 stops are available. In extended mode, 8 and 10 stops are also available. Neutral density filters allow the operator more control of exposure in bright scenes, especially where shallow depth of field is desired.

+These features are built-in to both the EOS C200 and EOS C200B, but require the optional LCD Monitor (LM-V1) accessory to be accessed. The EOS C200 comes with the LM-V1, and the EOS C200B does not.
