Streamlined Professional Workflow
The EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras offer a broad range image acquisition options, allowing great flexibility in post production workflows.
The EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras offer a variety of professional workflows. The cameras new Cinema RAW Light format provides professional shooters with the widest dynamic range and highest color fidelity for post production work. Using Canon's CRD software and Canon RAW Light codec with up to 15 stops of dynamic range is achievable.
MP4 recording is also possible on the camera for situations such as news gathering where capturing the image and speed through post are priority.
The EOS C200 supports both ACES 1.0 and HDR imaging through support for emerging HDR standards. Canon is working closely with 3rd party developers to help ensure maximum compatibility for these new formats with NLE and grading systems.
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.
The following is a list of verified CFast cards.
Canon Log and Canon Log 3
The EOS C200 and EOS C200B support 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.
Canon Log 3 is ideal for professional end users that want to get the most out of the camera system, and provides the most versatility for post production when recording in camera.
When using Canon RAW Light and Canon's RAW development software it is possible to additionally use Canon Log 2 allowing for a total of 15 stops of dynamic range out of the camera. Using this method requires additional post production time over other options, but gives the highest quality and flexibility for post.
Wide DR Gamma
The EOS C200 and EOS C200B provide the Canon Wide Dynamic Range Gamma function that allows users to get many of the benefits of Canon Log Gamma while maintaining an 18% gray point similar to Rec. 709. By using this setting, users can maintain the full dynamic range of the sensor without the need for extensive post processing. Use of Wide DR Gamma can greatly reduce post production time while maintaining very high image quality.
Overexposure is likely to occur in high-contrast scenes.
Achieves smooth gradation and reduces overexposure by seamlessly compressing high-brightness areas.
Enables color corrections with high flexibility because a sufficient margin is provided for high-brightness areas.
Canon Cinema RAW Development 2.0
Canon has developed a mature workflow for the EOS C200, Cinema RAW Development 2.0, which supports the new Cinema RAW Light format and is provided as a free download. In addition to new development process support, it also brings features from the previous release including support for HDR monitoring, Canon Log gammas, ACES 1.0 and more.
Certain images and effects are simulated.
Canon RAW Plugin 2.0 for Avid® Media Access
Canon RAW Plugin 2.0 for Avid® Media Access is provided as a free download, which allows users to directly import Canon Cinema RAW data into an Avid Media Composer® system. This helps streamlines the workflow, while enabling stress-free real-time playback and reducing file ingest wait time.
ACES 1.0 SUPPORT*
The EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras support the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES 1.0). Using Canon supplied IDTs, images captured on the EOS C200 can be imported directly into the ACES compatible systems. In addition, video output from the camera can be monitored by selecting the ACESproxy.
ACESproxy allows the camera to send a monitor output that simulates ACES space to a compatible monitor or device. Modifications made using the proxy output can be saved and later brought into the editing or grading suite to help insure changes and color choices made on set are accurately reproduced in post.
ACES image display is supported in Canon’s full line of 4K UHD Reference Displays.
* 0.7 is not supported
