Firmware: Canon Cinema EOS C200/C200B v1.0.5.1.00

Canon has released new firmware for the Cinema EOS C200/C200B camera.

Firmware Version 1.0.5.1.00 incorporates the following enhancements and fixes:

  • A Continuous Recording function has been added allowing for nonstop recording.*1
  • Peripheral illumination / chromatic aberration correction has been added for the following lenses:
    • EF Cinema Lens: CN-E20mm T1.5 L F
    • EF Lens: EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM
  • For LUTs that can be applied to output footage, official support for the ITU-R BT.2100 standard and ITU-R BT.2408 report have been added for the following terminals:.
    • SDI terminal
    • HDMI OUT terminal
  • Changes have been made so that the [HDR: PQ] and [HDR: HLG] base luminance corresponds to Diffuse White (100%) being 203nits*2.
  • Support for the [Reset] function that resets the clip number when the reel number is set, has been added.
  • When using an assignable button, the White Balance setting will be maintained after the power has been turned off.
  • Fixes a phenomenon that occurs on cameras with firmware versions 1.0.3.1.00 to 1.0.4.1.00 in which resolution appears to be reduced in SD card recordings and in external outputs when shooting with specific menu settings*3.

*1 When using the continuous recording function, only MP4 format / 1920×1080 resolution is possible.

*2 The HLG output is the brightness in the case of displaying on a 1000nits monitor.

*3 Specific menu settings:

– When [Resolution/Color Sampling] is set to [3840×2160 YCC420 8 bit].

– When [Resolution/Color Sampling] is set to [1920×1080 YCC420 8 bit], and [Slow Motion Recording] is activated.

– When [Resolution/Color Sampling] is set to [1920×1080 YCC420 8 bit], and the digital tele-converter and EF-S lens correction are activated.

Canon firmware updates are always so unexciting. Rarely do they ever add new features that expand the capabilities of the system. They just fix some random bugs and maybe add support for a new lens.

About to download and install....but I don't see the important fixes that so many of us have been complaining about for a year now:
  • Frame rate always resets to 59 when changing recording format (instead of remembering last one)
  • No way to turn off the display to save battery
  • Sub record (proxy) and dual record settings aren't remembered when you navigate back to raw or mp4.
This is basic.

I would kill for any of those fixes.

But Canon doesn't listen to ANYONE.

I can only hope that the EF 20mm F1,5 lens means that we'll soon get a replacement for the 20mm F 2,8 !
It's about time (Nikon's excellent 20mm F1,8 !) to introduce a 20mm F1,4.
