Recording AVCHD format video to dual SD cards, the C100 is compatible with a wide range of workflows and can acquire content to suit a broad range of post production/color-grading preferences, including Canon Log Gamma and a new Canon Wide DR Gamma. Autofocus recording with supported AF lenses, a multi-angle control/LCD panel, a removable handle and rotating grip, and many other innovations provide compelling mass-market appeal.

Canon C100 EF with Upgrade Features

  • DUAL PIXEL CMOS AF: Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a sensor-based, phase detection autofocus (AF) technology designed to provide smooth, high-performance continuous focus in movies. Ideal for fast and accurate autofocus, helping filmmakers to create stunning footage which maximises the creative options offered by fast lenses and shallow depth-of-field.
  • Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor
  • AVCHD Codec
  • Push Auto Iris/One-Shot AF
  • Three Built-In ND Filters
  • Canon Log Gamma
  • Canon Wide Dynamic Range (DR) Gamma
  • Fully compatible with all Canon EF, EF-S and EF Cinema Lenses
  • Dual SD Card Slots
  • 29 Custom Picture Settings
  • Waveform Monitor/Edge Monitor Focus Assist
  • HDMI Output With Time Code
  • Built-In Microphone
  • Twin XLR Connectors in Handle
  • Compatibility with Third-Party Accessories
  • One-Shot AF: This function helps you to obtain precise focusing. Before recording starts, the camcorder focuses on a subject at the center of the screen when the ONE-SHOT AF button is pressed. The focusing status can be confirmed by the color of the frame.
  • Push Auto Iris: This function provides assistance in determining the exposure. It automatically adjusts the aperture in accordance with the brightness during recording. PUSH AUTO IRIS function is activated only while PUSH AUTO IRIS button is being pressed for manual aperture adjustment.
  • Wide Dynamic Range Gamma: The main feature of Wide DR Gamma is that it retains continuity of an image, unlike the knee function that compresses the signals in high brightness areas using linear gamma. Wide DR Gamma does not require post-production processing. Recorded data can be used as is. It also enables creative color grading opportunities.

Canon C100 EF with Upgrade Reviews

Beautiful image


from Cleveland, OH

No question, this is a great camera. My only two cents: be careful when plugging in the audio/handle. I had several pins bend on me and had to ship my unit back in for repairs, and of course, the extended warranty did not cover it. But otherwise, I foresee this camera lasting me a long time. It produces a beautiful image, the ergonomics are outstanding, and it has all the strengths of a DSLR and video camera.

Auto Focus stopped working after 3 days


from Pittsburgh, PA

I bought this camera from Adorama and have been pretty happy about the purchase until the Autofocus failed after 3 days of using the camera. I contacted Canon USA and they advised me to reset the camera to manufacture default which I did. Unfortunately it did not fix the issue. The Autofocus square was still active but the camera was not able to engage the focus. I wish I could return the C100 to Adorama but their customer service said it's non-returnable item. Got to deal with Canon repair center on my first week of owning this camera which is a big frustration. Hope the other buyers will be more lucky.
