The Canon EOS C100 Digital Video Camera brings together the renowned technology of Canon CMOS sensors, DIGIC DV III Image Processor, and EF lens compatibility in a smaller, lighter body. Modular and compatible with a host of Canon and third-party accessories, the EOS C100 brings true cinema quality to independent event videographers and video production organizations.
The EOS C100 sports the Super 35mm Canon CMOS Sensor and Canon DIGIC DV III Image Processor of the C300 and records at 24Mbps using an AVCHD codec for easy integration in existing production workflows. Operability and customization make the EOS C100 an ideal camera for one-person operation while providing expanded professional capabilities such as HDMI output with embedded Time Code, support for external recorders, remote operation, and complete manual control over both video and audio recording.
Pair the powerful and portable EOS C100 with the full range of Canon EF, EF-S and EF Cinema lenses, from fish-eye to macro to super telephoto, and make this expanded vista your new starting point on your cinematic adventure.

Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor
The EOS C100 is equipped with the advanced 16:9 Super 35mm Canon CMOS Image Sensor. The large sensor format allows for cinematic image capture by providing depth of field control and dynamic range characteristics reminiscent of film for truly arresting images. The 8.3 megapixel sensor maximizes pixel pitch to permit greater sensitivity in low light while minimizing noise. The unique sensor design allows the EOS C100 to captures independent Red, Green, and Blue channels for Full HD 1920x1080 video. The resulting picture features the color and image quality similar to that of a three-chip camera with a single sensor.
DiG!C DV III Image Processor
Designed and built by Canon for the highest quality HD RGB processing, the DIGIC DV III Image Processor uses proprietary circuits and architecture to deliver exceptional image quality at the highest speeds, with low power consumption and minimal heat output. It processes the RGB image data—originating from the single CMOS sensor of the camera—into three channels (Red, Blue and Green) to maintain the rich resolution and clean color fidelity formerly possible only in three-chip sensor designs.
Exceptional Low Light Sensitivity and Wide Dynamic Range
Working together, Canon's Super 35mm sensor and DIGIC DV III Image Processor achieve a remarkably high signal-to-noise ratio that enables recordings with great detail and dynamic range even in minimal light. Users will appreciate the new camera's 12 stops of dynamic range at all ISO speed settings from 320 to 20,000.
ISO range now up to 80,000 with firmware update now available.
Canon Log Gamma and Wide DR Gamma
Canon Log Gamma preserves shadow and highlight detail for maximum editing and grading in post-production without degrading image quality; contrast and sharpness are subdued with characteristics similar to negative film. Canon Log Gamma emphasizes rich gradients from mid-range to highlights and realizes 12-stops of Dynamic Range (DR). At ISO 850 and above, Canon Log Gamma enables 5.3 stops of latitude above optimal exposure (and 6.7 stops below), broadening the available dynamic range in color grading.
Wide DR Gamma exhibits high dynamic range, suppressing brightness while maintaining seamless gradations. A wide dynamic range of 800% preserves latitude for post-production work, but Wide DR Gamma is designed for perfect color "out-of-the-box."
Multiple Recording Modes and Frame Rates
The EOS C100 supports shooting AVCHD bit rates up to 24Mbps (LPCM) at a maximum resolution of 1920x1080. Frame rates of 60i, PF30, PF24, 24p, 50i, and 25p are all available for any number of production workflows. In addition, the 60i frame rate offers reduced rolling shutter artifacts for cleaner, more realistic images. The EOS C100 supports relay recording of long takes between dual SD cards or can write video to both cards for redundancy in the event of SD card failure. Pre REC mode buffers approximately 3 seconds before the tally light activates, instilling confidence that you have captured your take as you planned it.
