From InterBEE: Interview With the Head of Cinema EOS

Newsshooter talks C100 Dual Pixel CMOS AF with Canon’s Mr Onda
Dan Cheung sits down with the head of Canon’s Cinema EOS product line to talk about the C100 dual pixel CMOS AF upgrade that was recently announced.

Mr Onda clarifies that the update to the Cinema EOS C100 is firmware and a “service adjustment”, as it and the EOS C300 already have Dual Pixel CMOS AF capabilities at the hardware level.

They also talk about lenses and RAW video and why they think the “lower range” cameras don’t need the RAW video capabilities that the C500 has. It’s also fun to watch Mr Onda discuss Magic Lantern and the actual hardware capabilities of their cameras like the EOS 5D Mark III.

An interesting point is Mr Onda says they plan to introduce STM technology into “L” lenses. Although he mentions that developing an L lens takes a lot longer to do than the current STM lenses.
