Philip Bloom is rather impressed by the features and specifications of the new Canon EOS C200 Cinema camera (press release). With internal raw as it’s main recording format, the EOS C200 aims high in the cinematographer market.

He writes:

Raw […] video recording as its main recording format is really, yes I will say it again, bold and rather impressive. They are calling it “Cinema Raw Light” and it is a variable bitrate compressed raw, this is good, as uncompressed raw video is totally unmanageable in data size.

The Canon EOS C200 has Dual Pixel Auto-Focus on board. Philip Bloom writes:

Canon dual pixel AF is SO good it changes the way you shoot for certain things. Interviews and gimbal work especially. Whilst Sony have incredible features on their video cameras their AF needs to be drastically improved. The best AF Sony have for video are on their A6500 and A9 stills cameras, both of which have touch screen autofocus using phase detection. The fact the C200 has their amazing autofocus via touch screen isn’t surprising but it does mean this camera trumps its bigger brother, the C300 MKII, in this and internal raw. Read the article.

Nice to see that a professional cinematographer like Philip Bloom is impressed by the Canon EOS C200. It appears Canon isn’t doing anything wrong.
