Announced August 1st, 2017; this C100 Mark II Cinema Camera Kit includes the newer F/4L IS II USM version of the Canon EF 24-105mm lens.
The Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera offers all of the advantages of its predecessor while adding advanced new imaging and operational features by popular demand. Optimized for one-person use and compatible with the full range of Canon EF, EF-S, and EF-mount CN-E Cinema lenses, this greatly evolved camera integrates the same Emmy®-Award winning Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor used in all of Canon''s Cinema EOS cameras, but now replaces the Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor with the more sophisticated Canon DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor. In addition to improved RGB video processing, the camera''s dual codec capability supports simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 recording, including 59.94P capture along with slow and fast motion recording. Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Face AF, wireless FTP video transfer, a built-in Canon Log LUT, GPS support and support for an extensive range of workflows, are additional operational features that have been added. A re-designed 270-degree rotating 3.5-inch OLED panel, and a tiltable large-size EVF with large-size eyecup, further empower the camera operator.

The compact, redesigned, lightweight body of the Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera has also evolved, and now includes a built-in microphone, START/STOP buttons clearly labeled in red, transparent covers on its twin SD card slots, improved battery insertion and removal, and an increased number of assignable buttons. Add to this its built-in ND filters, removable rotating pistol grip, removable top handle with twin XLR inputs, built-in stereo mic, and audio controls, and the Canon EOS C100 Mark II emerges as a powerfully evolved Super 35mm Digital HD camera designed to serve your quest for greater freedom of creative expression in HD video production.
Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor. The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera employs the same single Super 35mm Canon CMOS image sensor as the rest of the Cinema EOS camera family and includes the same innovative strategies that have established the outstanding image performance of these cameras. This 8.3 megapixel sensor maximizes the size of the individual photosite – each of which deploys two photodiodes to ensure high speed removal of accumulated charge, which in turn helps elevate the effective sensor dynamic range. Allied with innovative Canon signal extraction strategies that enhance the sensor signal to noise performance allows unprecedented elevation of the ISO setting in this professional Super 35mm camera, while always protecting its dynamic range.
Canon DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor. The four 1920 x 1080 HD R Gr Gb B video components from the image sensor are pre-processed and then sent to the DIGIC DV 4 processor for advanced video processing. This includes separate interpolation of the sparsely sampled R and B HD components to form full frame 4K for each. The two green HD components are also interpolated to form a single full frame 4K Green component. These three 4K RGB components are then down-sampled to create a set of YCC 422 HD components that have high MTF, improved edge transitions, low false color moiré, and enhanced overall color reproduction. These components are further processed preparatory to sending them to the AVCHD and MP4 codecs.
Simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 Recording. The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera enables users to record in both the AVCHD and the MP4 recording formats in a variety of bit rates (up to 28 Mbps and 35 Mbps, respectively), resolutions, and frame rates, including 59.94p, to address practically any production need. Both formats have their own particular advantages. AVCHD is a professional standard that enables long-duration recording of full HD using moderate total data capacities. MP4 has advantages for Web and smartphone sharing. Both formats are easily accepted by most nonlinear editing applications. The EOS C100 Mark II camera's dual SD card slots can record in either or both formats simultaneously and can convert AVCHD and MP4 files into smaller MP4 files for web upload.
