Canon USA announced an expansion to their Cinema EOS Line in a press release this morning, the EOS C200 and EOS C200B. We had a chance to get our hands on this camera before the announcement and made this video breaking down the major features and innovations:
The EOS C200 Digital Cinema Camera is a “ready-to- go” production camera that comes with a built-in electronic viewfinder and an array of accessories including a 4-inch touch screen LCD monitor, a versatile handle and ergonomic handgrip. The camera can record internal 4K RAW to a CFast™ 2.0 card in our new Cinema RAW Light format without compromising detail, as well as 4K UHD and Full HD in MP4 format to SD cards. The 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm CMOS sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, full compatibility with Canon EF-mount lenses, and HDR capability help make the EOS C200 ideal for film, documentary and television production, corporate and event videography, and newsgathering.
The EOS C200B version comes as a standalone camera body, excluding the built-in electronic viewfinder, LCD monitor, handle and handgrip. This will allow the user the flexibility to customize the camera with a wide range of accessories to fit their specific needs. The EOS C200B’s smaller form factor allows it to be used in tighter spaces, and more easily attached to a gimbal or drone.
Canon’s announcement included the pricelist of $7,499.00 for the C200 and $5,999.00 for the EOS C200B models. Though Canon’s popular 0% Financing Promotion for its Cinema EOS Line has not yet been extended to include the C200 or C200B, even with standard financing you should be able to own one for under $200/month (either model). You can join our waitlist on each individual product page, or check out the press release or on the Canon website. Below is a video shot on the C200: From Dock to Dish.
