The Canon EOS C100 Mark II Cinema EOS Camera with EF-S 18-135mm IS STM Lens combines the compact 1080p EOS C100 Mark II camera with a versatile zoom lens that covers wide to telephoto focal lengths on the camera's Super 35mm-sized CMOS image sensor. The EOS C100 Mark II is an updated version of the C100 that incorporates Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology that enables continuous auto focusing with compatible Canon lenses. This provides faster and more accurate autofocusing to assist users when operating with small crews. The Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera offers all of the advantages of its predecessor while adding advanced new imaging and operational features by popular demand. Optimized for one-person use and compatible with the full range of Canon EF, EF-S, and EF-mount CN-E Cinema lenses, this greatly evolved camera integrates the same Emmy-Award winning Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor used in all of Canon's Cinema EOS cameras, but now replaces the Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor with the more sophisticated Canon DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor. In addition to improved RGB video processing, the camera's dual codec capability supports simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 recording, including 59.94P capture along with slow and fast motion recording. Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Face AF, wireless FTP video transfer, a built-in Canon Log LUT, GPS support and support for an extensive range of workflows, are additional operational features that have been added. A re-designed 270-degree rotating 3.5-inch OLED panel, and a tiltable large-size EVF with large-size eyecup, further empower the camera operator.

The compact, redesigned, lightweight body of the Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera has also evolved, and now includes a built-in microphone, START/STOP buttons clearly labeled in red, transparent covers on its twin SD card slots, improved battery insertion and removal, and an increased number of assignable buttons. Add to this its built-in ND filters, removable rotating pistol grip, removable top handle with twin XLR inputs, built-in stereo mic, and audio controls, and the Canon EOS C100 Mark II emerges as a powerfully evolved Super 35mm Digital HD camera designed to serve your quest for greater freedom of creative expression in HD video production.

The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera employs the same single Super 35mm Canon CMOS image sensor as the rest of the Cinema EOS camera family and includes the same innovative strategies that have established the outstanding image performance of these cameras. This 8.3 megapixel sensor maximizes the size of the individual photosite ? each of which deploys two photodiodes to ensure high speed removal of accumulated charge, which in turn helps elevate the effective sensor dynamic range.  Allied with innovative Canon signal extraction strategies that enhance the sensor signal to noise performance allows unprecedented elevation of the ISO setting in this professional Super 35mm camera, while always protecting its dynamic range.

The four 1920 x 1080 HD R Gr Gb B video components from the image sensor are pre-processed and then sent to the DIGIC DV 4 processor for advanced video processing. This includes separate interpolation of the sparsely sampled R and B HD components to form full frame 4K for each. The two green HD components are also interpolated to form a single full frame 4K Green component. These three 4K RGB components are then down-sampled to create a set of  YCC 422 HD components that have high MTF, improved edge transitions, low false color moiré, and enhanced overall color reproduction. These components are further processed preparatory to sending them to the AVCHD and MP4 codecs.

The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera enables users to record in both the AVCHD and the MP4 recording formats in a variety of bit rates (up to 28 Mbps and 35 Mbps, respectively), resolutions, and frame rates, including 59.94p, to address practically any production need. Both formats have their own particular advantages. AVCHD is a professional standard that enables long-duration recording of full HD using moderate total data capacities. MP4 has advantages for Web and smartphone sharing. Both formats are easily accepted by most nonlinear editing applications. The EOS C100 Mark II camera's dual SD card slots can record in either or both formats simultaneously and can convert AVCHD and MP4 files into smaller MP4 files for web upload.

The EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera can provide slow and fast-motion video effects when recording in the MP4 format. Sound is not recorded, and the feature is not available during double-slot recording. Slow and fast-motion playback speeds can range from x0.4 slow up to x2.5 fast. This feature allows for converting an AVCHD or MP4 recording on the SD card in the EOS C100 Mark II camera's main slot into a 3 Mbps (640 x 360) MP4 file on the SD card in the alternate slot. This gives users a smaller file that is easier to transmit. MP4 conversion is not possible for MP4 files at 35 Mbps and AVCHD files at 28 Mbps. OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) is a newer display technology that provides vivid colors, high contrast, and dramatically improved responsiveness compared to traditional LCD screens. The 3.5-inch 1.23 megapixel OLED display on the EOS C100 Mark II delivers virtually 100 percent field of view coverage, wide and faithful color range support, and improved viewing even in bright sunshine. The EOS C100 Mark II camera's OLED screen has a new hinge design to help maximize monitoring versatility. The design allows the panel to fold shut when stowed and protect the OLED surface. It can then open 180 degrees to reveal function keys and a joystick, or open further to 270 degrees to deploy against the side of the camera and provide monitoring for directors, producers, or other production personnel.

Larger and totally redesigned from what was featured on its predecessor model, the EOS C100 Mark II camera's EVF (Electronic ViewFinder) uses a 0.45 inch 1.23 megapixel color panel surrounded by a large professional-style eyecup like the one used on the Canon EOS C300 and EOS C500 Cinema cameras. In addition, the new EVF has a 68 degree tilt angle, allowing it to be used more effectively in a variety of shooting situations. A standard feature of the EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera, Dual Pixel CMOS AF (AutoFocus) ingeniously deploys the two photodiodes within each sensor Photosite to facilitate a powerful phase difference detection that provides measurement data that ultimately controls the EF lens focusing system helps ensure that proper focus is always maintained, even in unpredictable "run and gun" news or documentary-type shooting situations. Dual Pixel CMOS AF operates within the center portion of the frame and is compatible with more than 100 Canon EF lenses.

Face AF mode detects and focuses on human faces. Both the Dual Pixel CMOS AF and Face AF capabilities give camera operators more freedom to concentrate on composing their shots and paying attention to potentially unpredictable shooting environments. By popular demand, the EOS C100 Mark II HD Digital Camera can capture 1920 x 1080 HD video at a 59.94p frame rate (59.94p is available in MP4 mode at 35 Mbps and in AVCHD at 28 Mbps). This frame rate can provide captured video with a very "smooth" look that is useful for sports and news applications. MP4 and AVCHD video files (and still images) can be wirelessly transferred to a selected FTP server. This feature is particularly useful for transferring time-critical video for news and for backing-up files. The feature uses the 5GHz band for quick, reliable file transfers. Up to 100 files can be selected to transfer at one time.

A monaural "mono" microphone is built into the body of the EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera for the capture of reference audio, for spoken notes, or as an aid to synching sound in post. This microphone works only when the removable top handle with twin XLR inputs is not attached. Many filmmakers prefer to shoot in Canon Log to protect the integrity of the total dynamic range of which the image sensor is capable, which, in turn, can provide greater latitude in post-production grading processes. As the picture is being monitored during Canon Log-enabled shooting, however, the image seen will not accurately represent its final "look". A built-in LUT (Look-Up Table) in the EOS C100 Mark II can be applied to facilitate viewing the video live on a monitor connected to the camera's HDMI® output in a more visually appealing Wide DR (Dynamic Range) or BT.709 (television standard) color space. The Canon Log LUT feature can be turned on or off in the camera's menu.

The combined performance of the camera's Canon Super 35mm CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor achieve a very high signal-to-noise ratio that enables recordings with great detail and dynamic range even in minimal light. This advanced performance yields a maximum ISO speed of 102,400 and a wide dynamic range with up to 12 stops. Digital filmmakers preferring complete manual control have that ability with the Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera. Shooters can also create, save, and recall custom picture settings, camera functions, and display options. Highly effective built-in Focus Aids to confirm critical focus can be displayed on both the tilting EVF and folding OLED monitor, including Peaking (white, red, blue, yellow) and a magnification function that can be shifted to 25 locations across the image. Also included is an Edge Monitor feature, which shows red and green displays at the bottom of the OLED panel with three red focus-check areas shown. The green waveform shows overall focus of the image while the red waveform shows the focus status of the focus-check boxes. Through this dynamic focus feedback technology shooters can intuitively tune focus or quickly change the zone of focus.

The removable top handle on the Canon EOS C100 Mark II Digital HD Camera integrates a built-in tally light, stereo microphone, dual XLR audio inputs for stereo recording, and a mic mount. Audio is captured in16-bit 48 kHz linear PCM format or Dolby Digital. A compact array of audio-level dials and channel/input switches built into the handle (under a hinged clear plastic protective cover) enables shooters to select signals from the built-in stereo mic or mics attached to the XLR inputs and adjust the gain independently on a channel-by-channel basis. Users can also power a wide range of audio-capture devices with the XLR inputs phantom power supply. An optional Canon RC-V100 Multi-Function Remote Controller can be connected to the camera via its remote control cable to adjust image quality and other settings from a distance. This can also be a handy feature when shooting from a crane, jib arm, or mounted remotely in some other inaccessible location. An optional Canon EOS GP-E2 GPS Receiver can be connected to the camera using a USB cable to provide precise location and time information during shooting. This capability can support editing and archiving functions.

Designed to exceed expectations and ideal for video and still images alike, the new EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM marks a new standard for EF-S lenses. It features a refined Image Stabilization system that delivers up to four equivalent stops of shake correction throughout the zoom range; and offers a maximum magnification of 0.28x at the telephoto end, while remaining even more compact in size. This EF-S lens supports the Canon EOS Rebel T4i DSLR's Movie Servo AF feature for smooth and quiet continuous AF during movie shooting by utilizing a new six-group zoom system and the adoption of a stepping motor and focus mechanism. High-speed autofocus is achieved thanks to an Inner focusing system, high-speed CPU, and optimized AF algorithm. Appearing for the first time in a Canon lens is Dynamic IS (Movie Shooting Mode only) that uses a wide image stabilization correction range to help ensure steady video while shooting when walking. Whether shooting movies or stills, image quality is phenomenal, with one UD and one PMo aspheric lens providing high resolution and high contrast images with reduced chromatic aberration throughout the zoom range. A 7 blade, circular aperture ensures beautiful, soft backgrounds and optimized lens coatings ensure excellent color with minimized ghosting and flare. A zoom ring lock even prevents the lens from accidently extending.

Features:
  • Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology: The Continuous AF (Autofocus) function for all autofocus lenses, using Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. A new AF Lock setting also lets you change the image framing while holding the desired focus. This feature is ideal for users who regularly shoot with smaller crews, who shoot moving subjects, or who want smoother, more natural-looking autofocus. Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology features a CMOS sensor that consists of an array of pixels that each feature two separate photodiodes. By continuously comparing their outputs during AF mode, phase-difference autofocus helps ensure non-blurred images and smooth focus transitions even when the talent and/or camera are moving. The new feature places a high priority on maintaining sharp focus while providing a natural, smooth autofocus movement with select Canon EF lenses - including newer-generation STM lenses - which offer even smoother and quieter operation.
  • Continuous Recording: The continuous, nonstop recording function allows you to create In and Out points in the footage every time the START/STOP button is pressed. At this time, the continuous recording function is compatible with Grass Valley's EDIUS Pro 7 software.
  • 320 to 102,400 ISO Range: With an extended ISO range from 320 to 102,400, the EOS C100 Mark II is even more sensitive to light than its predecessor. This lets you shoot usable footage during low-light and night shoots, even when using available or ambient lighting as your main light source. Being able to operate under lower light levels means you can work quickly with smaller crews and resources, ideal for low-budget and independent filmmakers.
  • Menu Navigation via Camera Buttons: Internal camera menus are now controllable from buttons on the camera body. While previously a removable joystick was the only way to control the internal menus, now buttons on the rear of the camera under the built-in monitor can be used. This lets you access the menus when the side grip is removed.
  • Viewfinder Magnification Location Shift: Manually move the center of the camera's magnification viewing area to one of 25 different locations throughout the image frame using the joystick. Now camera operators can easily check focus even on subjects that are located away from the center of the image frame.
  • Record Button Lock: The Key Lock setting now makes it possible to lock all operations, including the record button. This helps to prevent accidental operation during a critical shoot by the operator inadvertently pressing a wrong button
  • Super 35mm 8.3MP CMOS Sensor: The Super 35mm-sized sensor provides an angle-of-view and depth of field that equivalent to that of traditional Super 35mm film. With a native resolution of 8.3MP and a wider pixel pitch than conventional professional camcorders, the sensor offers enhanced sensitivity and reduced noise in low light environments.
  • DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor: Designed and built by Canon for the highest HD RGB processing, the DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor uses proprietary circuits and architecture to deliver the highest image quality at the highest speeds, with low power consumption and minimal heat output. It processes the RGB representations that originate in the single CMOS sensor of the camera into three channels (Red, Blue, and Green) to maintain the rich resolution and clean color fidelity formerly possible only in three-chip sensor designs.
  • Low Light Sensitivity: Working together, the Super 35mm sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor achieve a high signal-to-noise ratio that enables recordings with great detail and dynamic range even in minimal light.
  • Canon Log Gamma and Wide DR Gamma: Canon Log records an image with subdued contrast and sharpness, which preserves a high dynamic range and presupposes color grading in post production. Canon Log Gamma emphasizes rich gradients from mid-range to highlights, resulting in 12-stops of dynamic range. At ISO 850 and above, Canon Log Gamma enables 5.3 stops of latitude above optimal exposure (and 6.7 stops below), broadening the available dynamic range in color grading. Wide DR Gamma yields wide dynamic range by suppressing brightness while maintaining gradations, but is designed to produce finished-looking images without requiring any color grading in post-production.
  • EF Lens Mount with EF Contacts: The camera is fully compatible with Canon's renowned EF mount lenses. Even specialty lenses, such as Canon's 24mm f/3.5L II tilt shift lens or the 8-15mm f/4L Ultra-Wide Zoom fisheye lens. When shooting with EF lenses, the camera features peripheral illumination correction, which automatically compensates for light fall-off in the corners of the image.
  • Multiple Recording Modes and Frame Rates in AVCHD: The camera supports AVCHD bit rates up to 24 Mbps (LPCM) at a maximum resolution of 1920x1080. Frame rates of 59.94p, 50p, 59.94i, 50i, 24p, 25p, PF30, and PF24 are all available to meet the needs of your production workflow. It supports relay recording of long takes between dual SD cards or can write video to both cards for redundancy in the event of SD card failure. Pre REC mode buffers approximately three seconds before the tally light activates.
  • Multiple Recording Modes and Frame Rates in MP4: The C100 Mark II supports recording in 1920 x 1080p recording to MP4, at multiple frame rates, and also supports 720p and 640 x 360 frame sizes.
  • Uncompressed HDMI Out with Timecode & Canon Log LUT Support: Outputting an uncompressed signal via HDMI. This signal can superimpose timecode and the 2:3 pulldown marker, which means an external recorder and converter can process the HDMI output as an SDI signal. External recorders provide an instant back-up and help to streamline post-production workflows. The HDMI output also supports Canon Log LUT output.
  • Compact and Ergonomic Design: Designed with the solo shooter in mind it is 85% the size of the Canon C300, and it is based on a mobile core design that allows additional accessories to be attached depending on the situation. Strip the camera down for a "run-and-gun" style, or complement the camera with the full range of camera-mounted accessories. With a compact body, you can even shoot dual-camera 3D without an over-sized and cumbersome rig. Its light weight reduces user fatigue and allows even elaborate rigging systems to remain mobile enough for a single operator. The removable accessory hand grip rotates 360 degrees for comfortable shooting positions, while customizable hardware buttons allow the camera to fit your own personal shooting preferences.
  • Removable Top Handle with XLR Inputs and Stereo Microphone: Including a top mounted handle unit, which features two XLR connectors and a microphone shock mount. XLR connections offer a high quality audio input for professional grade microphones and facilitate 2 channel 48kHz linear PCM (24 Mbps) audio recordings.
  • High Resolution EVF and Integrated OLED Display: Accurately check focus, composition, and exposure with the 1.23 million dot-equivalent 0.45" electronic viewfinder with 100% coverage. The built-in 3.5" 1.23MP equivalent OLED panel tilts 100 degrees for flexibility when composing tough perspective shots and rotates 180 degrees to protect the screen when not in use. Use the LCD display to review footage or to view the camera's waveform monitor.
  • AVCHD or MP4 File Based Recording to SD Cards: The camera records video to SDHC/SDXC cards using AVCHD, a high-efficiency codec that has quickly become a standard in both the professional and consumer video markets. Maximum bit-rate is 24 Mbps. Video files greater than 2GB are split into multiple files while recording, which are automatically joined together upon import using Canon Data Import. AVCHD video is widely supported across NLE systems and is the standard codec for Blu-Ray. The camera records using the MP4 codec, and can record in fast motion (25% faster) or slow motion (40% slower) in MP4 recording mode.
  • Full Manual Control and Focusing Aids: The camera offers complete manual control of each aspect of the recording process. Create and recall custom picture settings, camera functions, and display options. The camera also features several powerful and intuitive focusing aids in both the EVF and LCD monitor that make it easy to confirm critical focus distance; Peaking Modes and Magnify Focus Modes are available while in standby or while recording. Additionally, the LCD features Edge Monitor Display; green waveform display the overall focus of the scene and red waveform provide focus feedback of the three focus check boxes visible on the LCD monitor.
  • One Shot AF and Push Auto Iris: One-Shot AF executes focus adjustments with a dedicated button, and the Push Auto Iris button automatically adjusts the aperture of the lens to quickly and easily maintain proper exposure. Both of these functions can be accessed even when operating in manual mode.
  • Built-In ND Filters: In excessively bright environments neutral density filters are often required to avoid over exposure, without compromising desirable shutter and aperture settings. It features built-in ND filters in three densities, which make for four ND configurations (OFF, 2 stops, 4 stops, 6 stops). The built-in ND filters are deployed via a manual dial.
  • Remote Terminal: Remotely control the camera via its LANC-compatible remote terminal. Remote operation allows for single-person operation even in creative rigging situations.
  • Wide Focal Range: With 74.2° to 11.3° angle-of-view, the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens offers excellent wide angle to telephoto focal lengths with Canon APS-C EOS Digital SLRs. In 35mm format its focal range is equivalent to 29-216mm.
  • Image Stabilization: Canon's Optical Image Stabilization system reduces the effects of camera movement and allows you to shoot sharp images with a 4-stop advantage in low-light conditions.
  • Compact Design: Measuring less than 4" in length and weighing about a pound, the lens boasts excellent portability without compromising optical quality.
  • High Speed Autofocus: An Inner Focusing system, optimized AF algorithm and high-speed CPU connections provide this lens with fast and accurate autofocus.
  • Ideal for Video: The stepping motor (STM) and focus mechanism and a new six-group zoom system offer quiet and smooth autofocus when used with the Movie Servo AF feature on select Canon DSLRs. This is ideal when shooting video so noise and jerky movements do not disrupt your action. The Dynamic Image Stabilization feature in Movie Shooting Mode reduces the effect of camera movement when shooting video while moving.
