Panasonic Replaces EVA1 Grip With Stronger One

EVA1 Grip Improvement

Panasonic announced today in a press release1 that they are replacing the Grip Units of AU-EVA1s that shipped in the first wave of cameras with a new, redesigned grip.

The removable grip of the EVA1 has had its rotation mechanism redesigned to increase the torque-stress limit after customers addressed concerns with slippage. By adding accessories to the EVA1, extra stress was causing the rotation latch on the grip to spin on its own. The new grip is capable of holding 9 lbs of camera/lens/accessories. Panasonic warns, however, that the grip was designed for normal operating conditions. Positioning accessories further from the center axis of the camera, as well as fast movements, increase torque forces on the grip unit. When adding a large number of camera accessories it is advised to support the camera on the shoulder or with an additional grip. Continue reading “Panasonic Replaces EVA1 Grip With Stronger One”




Canon announces a EF to PL mount swap service for ALL C200/C200B camera owners.

The service will cost $1500.

The camera will have to be sent to Canon to have this service done.

Contact the Canon Service Center at 855 CINE EOS (855 246 3367).


After the service, Canon will ship back the camera along with the EF mount parts.

If you choose to switch back to the EF mount, simply send the camera back to Canon

and the customer will only pay the labor cost.

Canon EOS C700 / EOS C700 PL / EOS C700 GS PL Firmware Update Notice

Canon C700 Firmware Update

Users of the Canon EOS C700 series cameras may have noticed an issue regarding a phenomenon that occurs during ProRes recording in which the final media clip cannot be played back. Note this issue only occurs while using ProRes as your main recording format and the output recording command is set to the “On” position.

If your recording media fills up (either a CFast card or Codex Capture Drive*1) and your recording stops, you may receive a series of messages. First the “Media Full” message, followed by the “Some clips require data recovery” message. After attempting to recover any data, a final message saying “Unable to recover data” may appear. If this happens, the last clip recorded may become corrupt and recovery is not possible. Again, this issue only occurs if your media source becomes full and your clip has not completely recorded.

Listed below are the cameras affected, along with the correct firmware updates:

EOS C700 / EOS C700 PL Digital Cinema Cameras equipped with Firmware Version to
Firmware Version (or later) resolves this phenomenon.

EOS C700 GS PL Digital Cinema Cameras equipped with Firmware Version

Firmware Version (or later) resolves this phenomenon.

Canon Announces C200 & C200B Cinema EOS Cameras

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.
