Canon announced another tremendous camera for its arsenal - Canon EOS C100 Mark II. This camera is a successor of the popular Canon EOS C100 and it is equipped with an 8.3MP Super 35mm CMOS sensor. Bearing in mind that this camera brings numerous improvements regarding design and performances, it is perfect for film and video production, such as documentaries, weddings and event coverage.
The EOS C100 Mark II records Full HD videos at 60 fps in AVCHD or MP4 format. Moreover, it can be paired with more than 103 Canon EF lenses, including even those with a stepper motor (STM).
As far as the design is concerned, the C100 Mark II sports a new eyecup, which can be combined with the camera's 1.23MP electronic viewfinder (EVF). Clearly marked red trigger buttons and a built-in mono microphone have been placed on the camera’s surface so that basic sound can be recorded even when the top handle is not attached. When it comes to viewing what is being recorded, this camera offers a 3.5" 1.23MP OLED display (which is new in comparison to the previous model), which delivers a 100% field-of-view coverage, even in direct sunlight.
As for advanced functions, the C100 Mark II also boasts a new DIGIC DV4 processor, Dual Pixel CMOS and Face-Detection autofocus, dual SD card slots, a built-in LUT (Look-up Table), which enables users to view what is being recorded in Wide DR (dynamic range) or the BT.709 (TV standard) color space on the OLED display of the camera or any external monitor connected to the camera. In addition, the camera can be operated remotely via a smart phone, tablet or computer, and above all, thanks to integrated 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz transceivers, the recorded material can be sent via FTP directly to a corresponding smart device.
The Canon EOS C100 Mark II will be in stock at the end of December, priced at $5,499.
