Filmtools have been kind enough to run through the Canon C100 camera’s features and let you know about some of its key features.
Unlike the C300 and C500, the Canon Cinema EOS C100 is only available with the EF mount, which makes it directly compatible with over 70 zoom and prime lenses of Canon’s EF, EFS, & EF Cinema lines. It’s 15% smaller than the C300, but it still packs the same sensor that is in the C300 & C500, capturing individual R, G, and B channels for each full HD 1920 x 1080 frame. Its new One Shot AF button enables users to instantly check focus, with the central image area automatically checked prior to recording. It features a locking HDMI connector for outputting uncompressed digital HD to an external recording device. At 24mbps and 4:2:0 color space, the C100’s AVCHD codec utilizes MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression. The Auto White Balance feature uses the power of Canon’s DIGIC DV III image processor to detect and balance color information. Its new graphical user interface enables adjustment of standard camera settings using the LCD screen.
