The entry-level Canon EOS C100 Mark II Super 35mm camera has been upgraded to deliver improved image quality, better in-camera recording quality and greater creative flexibility, plus easier operation and wireless sharing. There is also an improved, tiltable electronic viewfinder and a new flip-out OLED display (just one of many improvements that recognise that the C100 is often used by lone shooters).
It is the first Cinema EOS camera to get integrated Wi-Fi, for file transfer via FTP, and can record HD at up to 50/60p in both MP4 (at up to 35Mbps) and AVCHD (up to 28Mbps), or HD and SD, simultaneously to the two SD cards (and upload the lower bitrate version). There is also browser-based camera control via Wi-Fi.
It also has an extended ISO range of 320 to 102,400, for low-light use, and a new image processing system (based on the more powerful DIGIC DV 4 processor) to reduce moiré and aliasing. Its Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology simplifies finding focus and switching between multiple subjects – it also has Face Detection AF for automatic recognition and focus tracking. A built-in microphone has been added to the camera body, enabling sound recording for continuity in the smallest possible camera configuration.
