Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II Might Be Close To Release (April 2021)

Cinema EOS C200

Canon might soon release the Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II. April 2021 is the suggested date.

Canon Rumors reports that the Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II has these specifications:

  • Same sensor as the Cinema EOS C300 Mark III
  • RAW Recording
  • 4:2:2 10-bit
  • 4K 60P
  • 2K 120P
  • More a unibody design than the modular design of the C300 Mark III

NAB 2021 happens in April 2021, so it seems a good date to release the replacement for the Canon EOS C200.

A Canon 8K Super 35mm Camera Undergoing Field Testing

Canon EOS R300 Canon 8k

We got an interesting tip (thanks) about a Canon 8K camera with a Super 35mm imaging sensor.

Not sure if the specifications we have been suggested apply to the rumored 8K Cinema cameras, or to another camera, maybe the Canon R300.

A Canon 8K camera with a Super 35mm imaging sensor is “in beta version” (we interpret this as undergoing field testing). These are the specifications:

  • 8K 3.2μm Super 35mm imaging sensor
  • High-Speed 3D
  • Dual Gain Output
  • Dual Pixel AF II
  • Dual Native ISO
  • DIGIC DV X (Faster AF, Faster I/O, Faster UI)
  • DCI 8K 60fps 12b RAW
  • 4K RGB (2-Green-pixel binning on sensor) 90fps 12b RAW Output

The source added that the camera has a “crazy image quality, higher IQ than HELIUM 8K S35 and VENICE 4K S35 mode in dark scenes“.

Ideas and comments welcome.

Were These The Specifications For The Canon EOS C50?

Canon Eos C70 Canon Eos C50

A few weeks ago we got a tip about two upcoming Canon EOS R cameras, one of these was a video-oriented camera. It might have been the Canon EOS C50.

The source gave us some specifications for this video/cinema oriented camera, which was named to us as EOS R5c (or R3c):

  • Same sensor technology as the EOS R5 but with 11.25MP resolution
  • Records 4K/120P with no crop
  • Does 2.8K supersampling in super-35 mode
  • Has newly developed heat sink
  • Dual Pixel AF performance in low light better than EOS R5 and EOS R6

Now, another source contacted us and told us that the camera specifications listed above refer to the EOS C50, an upcoming Canon Cinema camera with RF mount. We already expected the C50 to get announced with the Canon EOS C70.

As usual, I am thankful for more insights and constructive comments.
