The Canon C200 EF-Mount Cinema Camera - is a professional 4K/UHD/50P digital video camera that complements Canon's Cinema EOS line of cameras. It is a powerful video editing tool that can be easily operated by a single user without an assistant. The camera supports a new recording format called "Cinema RAW Light", which provides the same flexibility in color grading as Cinema Raw, but with a smaller file size, allowing 4K video to be recorded in-camera to an internal CFast 2.0 card. The Canon EOS C200 is equipped with dual DIGIC DV6 processors and can record 4K video at up to 50 fps or Full HD movies without cropping at a maximum image refresh rate of 120 fps. The camera is equipped with an 8.85-megapixel Super-35mm CMOS sensor that can record 4K video (DCI) with a maximum resolution of 4096x2160 pixels. The camera also supports shooting with 15 stops of dynamic range in Cinema RAW Light format and 13 stops in MP4. This CMOS image sensor maximizes light per pixel, increasing camera sensitivity up to ISO 102400 while also minimizing noise in extremely low-light environments. This sensor also reduces data readout time resulting in reduced artifacts.
The camera has two SD slots for recording 4K UHD / HD MP4 video on cards. For Cinema RAW Light recording, use the Cfast card slot. The file size of this format is several times smaller than the usual RAW format, which speeds up the recording and transfer of video data. There is also an SDI connector for recording MP4 in 4:2:2 to an external recorder. One of the important aspects of the shooting potential of the Canon EOS C200 is its compatibility with Canon EF, EF-S autofocus lenses, as well as Canon Cinema Prime optics. Advanced autofocus capabilities are provided by Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus (AF) technology and a new touchscreen LCD monitor that allow users to select the subject of focus on the touchscreen and ensure smooth operation and AF tracking. Face Detection is also supported with Face Priority and Face-Only options to assist users with focus control.
An array of ND filters housed in a motorized assembly is positioned between the lens and the sensor, combining filter options with each other can achieve a minimum depth of field in strong light conditions. This combination of ND filters allows you to achieve up to 5 stops of neutral density. The camera's built-in 0.46-inch (1,770,000 dots) electronic viewfinder is capable of 100% field of view for easy viewing and precise exposure and color gamut. For convenience, the viewfinder angle is adjusted to the needs of the operator. The viewfinder has a full set of menu options for controlling camera settings and also supports HDR viewing.
The camera has two built-in XLR audio inputs with +48V phantom power and a 3.5mm microphone jack (mini-jack). Audio is recorded in uncompressed 16-bit PCM format at 48 kHz. Audio via XLR, as well as the microphone jack, is adjusted automatically or in manual gain control mode. Built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet modules allow you to remotely control the camera through a browser and transfer finished material via FTP.
The Canon EOS C200 comes with a camera grip that connects via a standard Arri mount. This makes it easy to change its position and allows you to connect a compatible accessory from another manufacturer. Removable top handle for carrying. The camcorder is ergonomic and suitable for long-term handheld shooting, thanks to the convenient shape of the body and low weight (1.4 kg). Since the camera has a compact size, it can be easily used on a drone or steadicam.
