Canon Cinema EOS Camera Lines Gets New Feature Upgrades
Few months back Sony released a firmware update for its fs700, which upgraded the ISO to 64,000. Canon seems to follow Sony’s path as it announced a firmware update for all its cameras in the cinema EOS range, which includes C500, C300, C100 and 1D C. Canon’s website shows:
Developed in response to market feedback, the feature upgrades will offer greater creative flexibility and enhanced operability, and clearly demonstrate Canon’s continued commitment to supporting the ever-evolving needs of the professional video community.
Owners of the Canon EOS C500, C300, C100 and 1D C 4K models will all see a huge increase in light gathering, with the maximum ISO going up from 20,000 to 80,000. That is one of the highest ISO settings on a pro camcorder.
Meanwhile, the C500 model will get new DCI-P3+ and Cinema Gamut color options, along with a new high-speed, 120fps shooting mode at a resolution of 4,096 x 1,080. The C300 will also get a new Wide DR color gamut and all the models will get various feature upgrades and bug fixes.
