The Canon EOS C100 just recently got the Dual Pixel CMOS Auto-Focus, a milestone technology that only Canon could deliver. Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology is featured also on the amazing EOS 70D, so you don’t have to break your bank to use this amazing technology.

Canon recently announced the possibility to unlock the innovative Dual Pixel CMOS Auto-Focus technology on the Canon EOS C100 (and C300) via a firmware update. We had a first impression about how Canon’s new AF technology works on the C100. Now it is Philip Bloom who tested Dual Pixel CMOS AF on the C100, and he shares his impressions in the video above (posted by Vimeo user Canon Pro).
A custom eyecup that fits perfectly to the Canon C100, transforming the EVF from “unusable” into ideal.
The C-Cup is a traditionally shaped eyecup designed to fit perfectly to the Canon C100, improving the camera’s electronic viewfinder and overall ergonomics. Anyone who has picked up the camera knows that the C100’s EVF is not what it could be. In the C-Cup, we’ve designed a simple and inexpensive solution that makes the C100’s viewfinder what it should have been in the first place.
The AF speed is so quick it puts the Panasonic GH2 and GH3 to shame.
I expected single-shot AF to work well. What I didn’t expect was that tracking focus is now quite possible and reliable. When subjects move past the camera you can maintain focus. Focus can also be held while zooming with lenses that are not Parfocal. This makes the whole experience of using stills zooms more similar to an ENG lens – all through the wonders of DUAL Pixel CMOS AF. DSLR lenses were never designed to work like this but it works because the Dual Pixel CMOS AF is just so fast.
Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF is fantastic and works for me. It’s not 100% perfect but compared to what else is around it is amazing. It turns the C100 into a powerful real world shooting work horse. As an operator it adds a level of security and speed that’s very reassuring.
The Canon Professional Network Europe published a short yet comprehensive article about the Dual Pixel CMOS Auto-Focus update now available for the Canon Cinema EOS C100 (price & specs). The upgrade is now available via Canon Regional Competence Centres in Europe. If you read the press release it sounds as if the Dual Picel AF is already on board on the C100, since Canon states that the upgrade “utilises the existing Super35mm sensor in the EOS C100“. So are you paying €400/£340 just to unlock the Dual Pixel AF feature?
Canon has announced that a major feature upgrade – the addition of Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus – is now available for its EOS C100 Digital Cinema Camera via Canon Regional Competence Centres in Europe.
The EOS C100 is a large sensor video camera that’s designed with the single shooter in mind – it already offers functions such as One-Shot AF, Push Auto Iris, auto white balance and a built-in microphone to aid individual camerawork. The Dual Pixel CMOS AF upgrade for the EOS C100 will expand the shooting possibilities by providing smooth, accurate autofocus with a huge range of lenses. For cameramen requiring more precise control the responsiveness of the One-Shot AF function has been greatly enhanced with increased focus speed.
The upgrade, an extra-cost option, utilises the existing Super35mm sensor in the EOS C100 and can be booked in at the Canon Regional Competence Centres* in France, Germany, Italy, Sweden or the UK – see later on in this article for more details of how to book in your upgrade. * Please note: if your country is not mentioned below please contact your local Canon Video Service Centre to book in your EOS C100 upgrade.
