Say hello to Canon’s two new incoming cinema cameras, the compact EOS C100 and the incredible 4K-capable EOS C500.

Canon recently revealed the EOS C100 and EOS C500 compact cinema cameras, along with four new CN-E lenses. The announcement brings the total number of Cinema EOS cameras up to four now, joining the EOS C300,which has seen a price-drop,  and the EOS 1D-C.

The C500 expands on the innovative modular concepts introduced last year with the C300 by adding 4K support – that’s right, the C500 can record video at resolutions up to 4,096 x 2,160 pixels. In addition to Raw 4K output, it also captures compressed 4K at up to 120 frames per second, and 2K at 12-bit 4:4:4 for high colour resolution.

Like the C300, the C500 will be available in both PL and EF-mount bodies, with the EF-mount now offering Cinema Lock, meaning the lens does not rotate during lens changes.

Whereas the C500 expanded on the C300’s top-end specifications, the C100 takes the core of the C300, it’s 8.3 megapixel Super 35mm CMOS sensor, and squeezes it into a more compact and more affordable body.

The C100 is capable of recording Full HD 1920x1080p video to SD cards at a bit-rate of 24mbps and 4:2:0 colour sampling. Uncompressed video can be recorded using the HDMI port.
