About the Canon Cinema EOS C200
Offering exceptional creativity and flexibility, the new 4K compact digital cinema camera is perfect for a broad range of imaging professionals.
As the first Cinema EOS camera to support the new RAW recording format – Cinema RAW Light – the EOS C200 provides the same flexibility in colour grading as Cinema RAW in a smaller file size, enabling filmmakers to record internally to a CFast 2.0™ card.
Newly developed Canon Dual DIGIC DV6 processors provide the ability to record internally 4K UHD/50P MP4, 4K DCI RAW and continuous 120fps High Frame Rate (HFR) in Full HD without crop. At the same time, advances in Dual Pixel CMOS Auto Focus (AF) technology and a new touch screen LCD monitor provide smooth AF operation and effective tracking.
Capability Drives Creativity
Canon’s Super 35mm CMOS sensor along with newly developed Dual DIGIC DV6 image processors deliver Cinema RAW Light recording at 4K DCI 50P internally to a CFast 2.0 card. It can also deliver 4K UHD recording at 150Mbps, and 2K or Full HD at 35Mbps to SD cards in MP4 format.
Supporting up to 15-stops of dynamic range in MP4 (Canon Log/log 3), the camera is perfect for capturing highlight and shadow detail.
Innovative Focus Control
With Dual Pixel CMOS AF, superb tracking and smooth autofocus ideal for video capture is possible. Using the LM-V1 touch-panel LCD monitor, users can intuitively select the subject they wish to focus on with simple touch operation.
4K / UHD
The 8.85M sensor supports 4K recording up to 4096 x 2160 for high quality images. 2K/HD recording (Over Sampling HD Processing) that takes full advantage of data from the 4K sensor.
DIGIC DV 6
Dual DIGIC DV 6 image processors are the core technology of this 3rd generation CINEMA EOS SYSTEM that offers wide-ranging expressive capabilities and stress-free operation in an compact body.
Cinema RAW Light – DCI 4K 60P/50P
New Cinema RAW Light format retains a high degree of post production freedom when colour grading similar to Cinema RAW while achieving between a one-third to one-fifth file size.
MP4 – 4K UHD 60P/50P
Support for UHD (3840 x 2160) 60P/50P makes long recording time possible on versatile SD cards while maintaining high image quality.
120fps – FHD
The C200 supports high-speed recording with a maximum 120fps in Full HD without cropping, realising even greater emotion in visual expression.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF
Ground-breaking AF technology that uses a CMOS sensor with a construction that combines the functions of both imaging and phase difference AF.
- The C200’s lightweight body of just 1.4kg is designed for comfortable hand-held shooting.
- Offering exceptional creativity, the compact size makes the C200 suitable for mounting onto a drone or gimbal.
- Combine Dual Pixel CMOS AF with the LCD Monitor LM-V1, with touch panel support, focusing becomes even more intuitive, with the capability to choose the subject for focusing with a touch.
- The C200 offers high-speed One-Push AF and continuous AF within a horizontal and vertical range of the screen of approx. 80%.
- The C200 supports a variety of output signals via HD-SDI and HDMI. High quality on-board audio is delivered via 2 x XLR terminals.
- An EVF LUT with partial HDR simulation enables a view close to an HDR display. HDR View Assist (400%/1600%) checking is also possible on the LM-V1.

Capability drives creativity
The EOS C200 features Canon’s 4K Super 35mm CMOS sensor with an effective pixel count of 8.85MP, along with the newly developed Dual DIGIC DV6 image processors. As a result, it can deliver Cinema RAW Light recording at 4K DCI 50P internally to a CFast 2.0™ card. It can also deliver 4K UHD recording at 150Mbps, and 2K or Full HD at 35Mbps to SD cards in MP4 format.
Supporting up to 15-stops of dynamic range with Cinema RAW Light and up to 13-stops of dynamic range in MP4 (Canon Log / Log 3), the camera is perfect for capturing highlight and shadow details.
The EOS C200 is also capable of delivering both slow and fast motion recording at up to 120fps with no crop in Full HD/MP4, ideal for those wanting creative slow motion capture.
An ISO range of 100 to 102,400 guarantees excellent performance, even in difficult lighting conditions, such as when quickly switching between locations. The built-in optical ND filters of up to 10 stops provide further flexibility and convenience, allowing filmmakers to shoot in bright light and expand the depth of field control.
Advanced operability and ergonomic design
Built for professionals and ideal for single shooters, the EOS C200 features an advanced AF system that provides reliability and accuracy when shooting 4K, as well as a touch screen LCD panel for filmmakers to easily select their subject. For those who need to switch effortlessly between several subjects in a single shot, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables smooth AF operation whilst the Manual Focus Assist Function, Face Detection with Face Priority and Face-Only options provide greater creative focus control.
