New firmware adds XF-AVC format to C200, enhances other CEOS cams

Quote:
"Footage shot on Canon EOS C200, EOS C700, EOS C700 GS and EOS C300 Mark II cameras will now automatically have lens metadata (MXF) embedded, including actual focal length data, not just the full frame 35mm equivalent.

Enhancements to touchscreen sensitivity will enable EOS C200 and EOS C300 Mark II users to enjoy easier focus position selection."
There's more to this... full details here:

Canon releases professional video firmware upgrade to drive workflow efficiency at DV Info Net

This is a UK press release; I imagine there will be a USA press release as well.

Been waiting for this firmware as I had no metadata control over the MP4s. This will give me a similar naming convention as my C300 Mark II files (i.e. B001C001 and so on), which will be great.

Unfortunately, this firmware update still isn't available for download yet.

Canon USA press releases usually hit within hours after Canon UK. If they haven't announced this by Monday, then I'll ask them about it during our press meeting with them Monday morning at NAB.

Thanks, Chris. Just refreshed the page again, still no firmware.
