NEW from Canon: the EOS C100 digital video camera

Canon announced today, the latest addition to the Cinema EOS family, the EOS C100 digital video camera. Offering the same core components as the C300, the C100 is a smaller package designed for the indie videographer or filmmaker on a budget.

The compact, affordable entry-level model delivers full 1920×1080 HD video and integrates the AVCHD codec for universal compatibility with laptop and desktop editing systems. The C100 will be available with an EF mount and, therefore, compatible with the more than 70 zoom and prime lenses in Canon’s EF, EF-S and EF Cinema lens lineups.

The C100 also includes a push auto iris function, one-shot auto focus (or full manual focus and exposure control), a multi-angle 3.5″ LCD control panel, a high-resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF), built-in ND filters, dual XLR inputs, and a locking HDMI output. These features combine with such advanced technologies as reduced rolling shutter artifacts in 60i mode, enhanced gamma modes (including Wide Dynamic Range (DR) Gamma and Canon Log Gamma), cinematic depth of field characteristics, and excellent low-light performance.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Canon Super 35mm CMOS sensor
  • Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor
  • Exceptional low-light sensitivity and wide dynamic range
  • Canon log gamma and wide DR gamma
  • Multiple recording modes and frame rates
