New Canon Cinema EOS C200 and 200B

Note from Admin: Updated to include C200B (which was not mentioned in the earlier UK press release)

See full C200 and C200B details here: http://www.dvinfo.net/news/canon-usa...and-c200b.html


------------------------------

Canon just announced the launch of the Canon EOS C200, which marks not only a new addition to the famous Cinema EOS line of cameras, but also a bold step by Canon, introducing internal 4K RAW at a relatively affordable price. Check out all the details of the new camera below.
Canon EOS C200 – Internal RAW Recording & More

The Canon EOS C200 is here and it shoots RAW! In fact this is a camera for documentary style shooters that is laid out to record RAW as a main codec. To make shooting RAW feasible the camera supports a new RAW recording format called “Cinema RAW Light”, which according to Canon, provides the same flexibility in colour grading as Cinema RAW, but at a smaller file size, which makes it possible to record internally to CFast 2.0 media.
This is big news for many cinema camera enthusiasts, especially considering the low price point of around $9,000. RAW and a higher bitrate recordings have always been a format filmmakers of all niches craved, in order to achieve high quality results, but for many it has been out of reach. The fact that we now have a sub $10k Canon EOS camera with internal 4K RAW recording is very big news.

Recording Formats

But that’s not all. The newly developed Dual DIGIC DV6 processor of the C200 enables internal recordings in 4K UHD/50P MP4, 4K DCI RAW 50P (!) and continuous 120fps High Frame Rate (HFR) in Full HD without cropping the sensor.

As an alternative to the Cinema RAW Light format, the C200 can also record 4K UHD at 150Mbps and 2K or Full HD at 35Mbps, recorded to an SD card in the MP4 format.
•Internal 4K recording with Cinema RAW Light or MP4 format
•Continuous 120fps (maximum) High Frame Rate with no cropping at Full HD
•Up to 15-stops dynamic range (Cinema RAW Light)
•Professional High Quality image and audio
•Dual Pixel CMOS AF with touch control and extensive shooting functions
•Easy operation and flexible configuration

re: New Canon Cinema EOS C200 and 200B

I've been waiting to upgrade from my c100 mk1 and this is likely my next cam. I'll let the haters tear the specs apart first and see how the C200 holds up under the intense scrutiny.

re: New Canon Cinema EOS C200 and 200B

This is not a successor to the c100 as many had hoped but a higher end model that sits between the 100 and 300 hence the "200" modelnumber and higher price ofcourse, I wonder if Canon is still going to release a c100 markIII but without the RAW 4K 50p and most likely with 4K 25p mp4 incamera and maybe 4K 50p out to a recorder at a c100 pricelevel.

There's actually more to it than this, but... we'll have to wait for the USA version of the press release.

Sorry about that. Only a few hours to go.

Yes, they're changing over to American spelling and currency values as quickly as they can. :-P

Re: New Canon Cinema EOS C200 and 200B

Okay, actually it's two models, not one. Full info here:

Canon USA Announces Cinema EOS C200 and C200B at DV Info Net

Thread title edited to reflect the news that it's two separate camera configs.

Basically, the C200 has a rear EVF and ships as a full kit with top handle, hand grip, LCD mount, and touchscreen LCD. Price $7500.

The C200B is the *same* camera *without* the rear EVF and *without* the top handle, hand grip, LCD mount, and touchscreen LCD. Price $6000.

C200B pic attached. See press release linked above for more images.

Re: New Canon Cinema EOS C200 and 200B

Here's a link to Canon's video introduction on Youtube for the C200 and C200B. Official pricing details aren't available quite yet but I'm pretty excited to see the warm welcome this camera is getting. It looks like it's going to be an excellent tool for our customers and the only thing I'm bummed about is having to wait a week and a half to get my hands on a demo unit!

Re: New Canon Cinema EOS C200 and 200B

I've been hating on Canon for a while (as an ex Canon fanboy) but this looks really really good. I'll be pre-ordering it for sure.

Re: New Canon Cinema EOS C200 and 200B

I was curious about the 150Mbps bit rate for the internal 4K. It seemed a bit light. Upon further discovery I now understand why. Apart from the ability to do 12-bit RAW Light all the other recording modes internally are 4:2:0 8-bit. Also the 4K HDMI out is only 4:2:0 8-bit? The HD-SDI does deliver 10-bit 4:2:2 though for external 10-bit 4:2:2 recording.

I guess they couldn't offer internal 10-bit 4:2:2 at 50/60p otherwise that could really have compromised the C300 position in the line-up. The camera offers so much in the way of spec it's a shame they didn't go for 10-bit 4:2:2 internally.

For fast turn around broadcast work the RAW Light IGbps CFast 2.0 option is not very practical. Most broadcasters I deal with are looking for 10-bit 4:2:2 so sadly that kind of knocks this out of contention for me. I was thinking Canon color, 4:2:2 and 10-bit could have pulled me away from Sony's internal 4:2:2 10-bit 50/60p offering. Guess the FS7 doesn't go yet!

For non broadcast work I reckon Canon have jumped a big way forward as in every other regard this camera offers a lot. How it will sell at $7500 rear VF only without 10-bit internal recording in flavors other then 12-bit RAW remains to be seen I guess.

Hi Chris, I wasn't sure what you meant by "rear EVF only." The $7500 price on the C200 includes the rear EVF and the external LCD touch-screen.
