Canon set to announce a new Cine camera for NAB 2018?

Canon EOS C300 Mark III

Ahead of NAB 2018 the rumors mill has new bits.

As CR reports:

We’ve confirmed that at least one Cinema EOS camera will be announced ahead of NAB 2018 in April in Las Vegas […]

We can confirm that it will not be called the C900 and will be an update to a current camera. If we had to guess, we’re probably going to finally see the Cinema EOS C500 Mark II. We can’t imagine the C700 getting a new version this soon after launch, and we know that the C300 Mark II will remain current through 2018.

A new Canon Cine camera is rumored since a while. This rumor has a good chance to become real.

Stay tuned.

Canon EOS C200 product description:

Offering exceptional creativity and flexibility, the new 4K compact digital cinema camera is perfect for a broad range of imaging professionals.

As the first Cinema EOS camera to support the new RAW recording format – Cinema RAW Light – the EOS C200 provides the same flexibility in colour grading as Cinema RAW in a smaller file size, enabling filmmakers to record internally to a CFast 2.0™ card.
Newly developed Canon Dual DIGIC DV6 processors provide the ability to record internally 4K UHD/50P MP4, 4K DCI RAW and continuous 120fps High Frame Rate (HFR) in Full HD without crop. At the same time, advances in Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus (AF) technology and a new touch screen LCD monitor provide smooth AF operation and effective tracking.

Capability drives creativity

The EOS C200 features Canon’s 4K Super 35mm CMOS sensor with an effective pixel count of 8.85MP, along with the newly developed Dual DIGIC DV6 image processors. As a result, it candeliver Cinema RAW Light recording at 4K DCI 50P internally to a CFast 2.0™ card. It can also deliver 4K UHD recording at 150Mbps, and 2K or Full HD at 35Mbps to SD cards in MP4 format.

Supporting up to 15-stops of dynamic range with Cinema RAW Light and up to 13-stops of dynamic range in MP4 (Canon Log / Log 3), the camera is perfect for capturing highlight and shadow details.
The EOS C200 is also capable of delivering both slow and fast motion recording at up to 120fps with no crop in Full HD/MP4, ideal for those wanting creative slow motion capture.

An ISO range of 100 to 102,400 guarantees excellent performance, even in difficult lighting conditions, such as when quickly switching between locations. The built-in optical ND filters of up to 10 stops provide further flexibility and convenience, allowing filmmakers to shoot in bright light and expand the depth of field control.

Advanced operability and ergonomic design

Built for professionals and ideal for single shooters, the EOS C200 features an advanced AF system that provides reliability and accuracy when shooting 4K, as well as a touch screen LCD panel for filmmakers to easily select their subject. For those who need to switch effortlessly between several subjects in a single shot, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables smooth AF operation whilst the Manual Focus Assist Function, Face Detection with Face Priority and Face-Only options provide greater creative focus control.

Canon Cinema EOS C200 to be announced next month, featuring 4K? [CW2]

EOS C100 Mark II

Is Canon going to announce the Canon Cinema EOS C200 next month? That’s what a new rumor suggests.

The Canon Cinema EOS C200 may also feature 4K video. No specifications so far. It’s not clear if the EOS C200 will replace the EOS C100, or not. We heard about an EOS C100 replacement last year, and it was suggested it may have 4K.

I’m a bit puzzled by this rumor. First. I wonder why the EOS C200 wasn’t announced at NAB, which would have been the right stage for this camera announcement. Second, the EOS 6D Mark II may be announced in JulyI’m not sure Canon is going to announce to major camera upgrades one after the other in such a short time frame.

Stay tuned.
