Canon has released a 4K compact camera that supports a new version of its existing recording format Cinema RAW.
The EOS C200 houses a Super 35mm CMOS sensor and can record 4K at 50fps. It can also deliver 4K at 150Mbps, and 2K or Full HD at 35Mbps to SD cards in MP4 format.
The new format, Cinema RAW light, is said to provide the same flexibility in colour grading as Cinema RAW but does so in a smaller file size that can be recorded internally to a CFast 2.0 card.
Other vital statistics include 15-stops of dynamic range with Cinema RAW Light and fast motion recording up to 120fps. It is fitted for EF Mount lenses.
It weighs 1.4kg making it comfortable for hand-held shooting over long periods. The compact size also makes the camera suitable for mounting onto a drone or gimbal.
Built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity allows for browser remote control and the ability to transfer files via FTP. The Cinema RAW Light video format will be supported in Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve and in Avid Media Composer via a plugin.
The C200 will be available in July 2017 priced at around £7,750.
The EOS C200 will be on display at the Media Production Show on 13-14 June at Olympia, London
