Have Canon released the ultimate video camera?
Video cameras have always been an necessity upgrades amongst the pro’s, But are the camera manufacturers coping with the requirements of the film-makers? The fine line between photographers and videographers is getting blurrier by the day with photographers leaning towards motion picture. There are plenty of options for shooters to practice with.
Canon has launched what could be the ultimate video camera, The Canon C200.
The C200 is the first camera to support internal capture of 4K RAW footage at 50p. With its newly developed Dual DIGIC DV6 processors, It can shoot 4K DCI RAW and continuous 120fps High Frame Rate in full HD without crop.
It has a jaw-dropping 15-stops dynamic range with its new 8.85MP 4k 35mm CMOS sensor. We can choose to record to either SD or CF memory. ISO ranges from 100 and tops out at 102,400 to help shoot in low light. The C200 comes with built-in optical ND filter of upto to 10-stops, a very useful feature to use a large aperture in bright lighting conditions to create shallow depth of field.
The camera comes equipped with touch-screen LCD to help quickly focus and make the most of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF. Apart from this has the “Face detection” and “Face Only” focus options are also present. Surprisingly the body weighs only 1.4Kg thus making it suitable for mounting on a larger drone or gimbal.
We have the possibility of remote control of the settings and ability to transfer large files via FTP as the camera features built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity.
