Firmware - Canon EOS C100
« on: June 30, 2013, 09:25:22 AM »

Canon EOS C100

Canon has released new firmware for the entry level Canon EOS C100 camera.

The firmware adds some continuous autofocus features to the the entry level Cinema EOS camera when using STM lenses from Canon. Early reports are very positive about the implementation.

  • A function has been added which allows automatic continuous focusing and iris setting on a subject in the center of the screen when using the EF-S18-135mm f3.5-5.6 IS STM lens.

  • The polarity of the XLR terminal has been modified to improve compatibility with external audio devices. The pin configuration has been modified to be consistent with the Instruction Manual.

Download the firmware | Canon EOS C100 at B&H $5499 (Save $1000)

In fact it's purely the 18-135 STM...the 40mm pancake does not autofocus or auto-iris (yet).

This strictly was a way for Canon to tell ENG they had a solution in the C100, for everything but power zoom. It's apparently a good solution. Maybe I will even pick up one of those lenses with the 70D kit on a Xmas special. But it's not a parfocal lens sadly and it will be October before the firmware offering movable mag assist appears, which is our next chance to have e.g. the 40mm pancake supported. The 'cake would be good for steadicam AF use, nice & light.
