Canon recently announced a new addition to the Cinema EOS System of professional cinematography products: the EOS C200 digital cinema camera, which makes possible the on-camera recording of 4K video in MP4 and the new Cinema RAW Light. The camera is ideal for wide-ranging video productions such as movies, TV dramas and commercials, as well as news, documentaries and milestones events, for example, weddings.
“We see today a lot of Filipinos who are getting into the business of cinematography. We see how hobbies of shooting moving images are turning into purposeful expression of creativity in the movie, TV, advertising, and event videography industries. That is why our newest EOS C200 comes in at a perfect time as it brings in great features that will help cinematographers deliver powerful materials with much more efficiency,” said Benny Yu, Consumer Group Head of Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc.
The EOS C200 features the newly-developed Dual DIGIC DV 6 image processing platform that makes possible the recording of 4K video1 to CFast cards using the new Cinema RAW Light video format, which retains the same amount of information and degree of freedom when color grading a Cinema RAW while achieving between one-third and one-fifth the file size, in addition to 4K MP4-format video recording to SD cards. Both of these 4K video formats are recorded on camera, thereby enabling more efficient 4K video content creation.
