Interview With Canon Cinema EOS Global Product Manager (and EOS C100 Dual Pixel AF Test Video)

The interview was taken at Inter BEE 2013 by newsshooter’s site editor Dan Chung. The video above is a 25 minutes interview with Mr. Yoshinari Onda, Canon Cinema EOS global product manager. Mr. Onda is in charge of the Canon Cinema EOS line since the beginning, in the video he gives some insights about the development of the EOS C100, EOS C300, EOS C500, and EOS-1D C cameras.

The video below shows how the Dual Pixel CMOS AF works on the EOS C100. As you most probably know, Canon is going to offer a paid upgrade for the EOS C100 in order to have the ground-breaking Dual Pixel AF on board. The video below shows how the Dual Pixel AF performs on the C100. It’s the first I have seen so far. If you want the Dual Pixel AF but can’t afford a C100, there is always the Canon EOS 70D, the DSLR where Canon introduced their innovative auto-focus technology.

First ISO 80000 Tests on Canon EOS C100 and C300 (new firmware)

Italian film maker Aldo Ricci made the little video above to test the new firmware updates for the Canon EOS C100 and EOS C300. Among other things the firmware pushes max ISO up to 80000, and that’s what tested in the video. A Canon EOS 5D Mark III with an EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS lens were used. Settings: k4400, C LOG, no colour grade.

Unfortunately the firmware for the EOS C300 has been temporarily put offline because of a bug they found.

The firmware update has yet to be released for the EOS C500. However, the guys over at cinema5d could test a pre-release version of the firmware during IBC in September.
