Canon Announces EOS C100 Upgrade

News Image
Canon has announced an upgrade that brings Dual Pixel CMOS AF functionality (DAF) to its professional EOS C100 camcorder.
First launched with the EOS 70D DSLR, Dual Pixel CMOS AF expands shooting possibilities by providing continuous autofocus in large sensor video cameras.
The EOS C100 is the first-ever camcorder to feature this technology.
DAF provides accuracy and control of focus when shooting – a crucial factor given the shallow depth of field made possible by the combination of fast glass and a large image sensor.
Continuous autofocus is supported by all Canon EF lenses, while the existing One-shot AF function becomes approximately twice as fast with any of the 104 supported lenses.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a sensor-based, phase detection Auto Focus (AF) technology designed to support video shooting.
A compatible CMOS sensor was included in the original design of the EOS C100. Following further technical development since launch, the camera can now be upgraded.
While the underlying Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor technology in the EOS C100 is similar to that found in the Canon EOS 70D digital SLR, it has been adapted to fit the capabilities of the EOS C100.
Kieran Magee, Director of Professional Marketing, Canon Europe, comments: "We're dedicated to developing innovative imaging products that also deliver great value to our customers. We're very proud of our existing Cinema EOS system range, and we're continuously listening to our customers to identify ways that we can enhance our products to allow them to push their own creative boundaries. This upgrade, which brings Dual Pixel CMOS AF sensor technology to the EOS C100, is further evidence of this commitment."
