Advanced design technique and Canon know-how enable lenses with minimal focus-induced changes in the angle of view. 22 Canon image quality At the heart of each Cinema EOS camera is a remarkable Canon CMOS sensor. These sensors help ensure cinematic shallow depth-of-field imagery, excellent low-light sensitivity and high signal-to-noise ratio. The addition of Canon Log Gamma ensures that you capture a wide, filmic, high dynamic range without sacrificing broadcast workflow, while high-speed ≥ Image Processors help ensure excellent tonal and color reproduction across a wide ISO sensitivity range. Canon Super 35mm CMOS Image Sensor Canon CMOS Sensor Signal Processing Canon Large Format CMOS Sensors Canon ≥ Image Processing Canon Log Gamma Wide Dynamic Range with Low Signal-to-noise Designed from the ground up to specifically meet the cinema industry’s motion-imaging needs, the EOS C500, EOS C300 and EOS C100 digital cameras feature Super 35mm, 8.3 Megapixel CMOS sensors that offer the type of outstanding image-performance characteristics demanded by professional cinematographers. The EOS-1D C digital camera’s unique 18.1 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor provides excellent signal-to-noise ratios and ISO sensitivity, allowing great detail in deeply shadowed scenes while preserving finer detail in more exposed areas of the frame. The EOS C500, EOS C300 and EOS C100 digital cameras feature Canon’s specially developed ≥ DV III Image Processors for in-camera component video processing. These processors’ highly sophisticated and proprietary architecture support flexible control over a wide range of video-image parameters that empower creative choices on the set. The EOS C500 includes special, high-speed processing to prepare and structure the 4K RGB Bayer RAW and 2K RGB RAW video formats for delivery via 3G-SDI outputs to external recorders. Dual ≥5+ Image Processors within the EOS-1D C embody superb video-data handling, which includes refined algorithms to reduce noise at high ISO speeds. Canon Log Gamma lets Cinema EOS cameras record the maximum dynamic range delivered by their respective image sensors. The Log Gamma Curve is implemented at a high bit depth and then downconverted, recording the output data using Canon’s 8-bit 4:2:2 XF Codec. The curve facilitates post-production processes that seek to restore the image sensor’s linear light-transfer characteristics; the resultant data files are ideal for advanced post-production processes that require excellent tonal and color reproduction. Cinema EOS cameras offer outstanding low-light sensitivity. Noise is kept remarkably under control, possessing a subjective, pleasing, film-like texture pattern devoid of the fixed-pattern noise that traditionally has been the nemesis of digital cameras. Excellent signal-to-noise ratios help ensure that all of the ISO settings offered by each camera are eminently suitable for digital cinematography. Canon ≥ DV III Image Processor Canon Super 35mm CMOS Image Sensor Helps ensure tonal reproduction for both highlight and lowlight regions during postproduction. Signal processing superior to that in a 3-chip RGB system OUTPUT 2160 Normal 1 Canon Log 3840 1080 Shown at actual size: 24.6mm x 13.8mm INPUT 1920 Frame grab from the Sam Nicholson, A.S.C. film “XXIT,” shot in Canon Log mode 23 Frame grab after color grading 24 MULTIPLE RECORDING FORMATS For added flexibility both on the set and during post-production, Canon Cinema EOS cameras offer multiple recording options to both in-camera and external media. The EOS C500, EOS C300, and EOS C100 digital cameras all support 8-bit HD in-camera image acquisition. The EOS C500 extends this to a choice of 2K or HD external recording at either 12-bit or 10-bit RGB 4:4:4, with an additional powerful creative option of 4K capture at high frame rates. The EOS-1D C supports in-camera 4K at 24 fps capture, or HD capture at up to 60 fps. 4K Acquisition For both cinematic and HD-video productions, the 4K mode of operation offers significantly enhanced image quality. The EOS C500 offers a choice of 4096x2160 format for motion picture production or 3840x2160 format for television production. Uniquely, the EOS C500 structures its RAW file as a multiplex of four separate 2K components for external recording, with full retention of all 4K color-coded information. Format 2K Acquisition The EOS-1D C also offers 4K acquisition – as in-camera recording of 4:2:2 YUV video at 24 fps using a Motion-JPEG intra-frame codec. This unique camera further offers alternative high definition video capture – with a choice of a Super Crop 35mm mode (when using cine zoom lenses) at frame rates of 24/25/30P, or a Full Wide HD (when using cine prime lenses or standard EF lenses) at frame rates of 24/25/30/50/60P. All four Cinema EOS cameras support high-quality HD acquisition at all of the internationally standardized frame rates. The EOS C500, EOS C300, and EOS C100 cameras originate RGB video components by direct parallel readout from their Super 35mm CMOS image sensor – thus avoiding any debayering processes. All cameras record this HD signal in-camera while also offering external, uncompressed 4:2:2 HD via HD SDI ports (for the EOS C500 and EOS C300) and via HDMI for the EOS C100. The EOS C500 offers a choice between HD (1920x1080) and 2K (2048x1080) RGB 4:4:4 at 12- or 10-bit, at frame rates up to 60P for external recording. Switching to 10-bit YUV 4:2:2 allows the HD or 2K components to operate as high as 120 fps.

The unique, four-component Canon RGB Bayer RAW and Half RAW signals (at half the vertical resolution) carry the 4K-coded color information via SMPTE-standardized 3G-SDI recorder interfaces for ready ingest to data servers and media management workstations. Canon’s Cinema RAW Development (CRD) software debayers 4K files and converts Production-to-post workflows vary with choices of 2K/HD or 4K acquisition, in-camera versus external recording, as well as the production application – such as moviemaking or TV production. Workflows can also be dependent upon a number of creative choices and delivery requirements. Since flexibility is the key to successful cinema and television production, Canon collaborated closely with multiple manufacturers of digital 4K/2K recorders and editing systems to help ensure full camera-to-post compatibility with seamless data transfer options. 2K Workflow the 10-bit data to RGB DPX files for direct use in post-production. Canon-supplied information on Canon Log facilitates precise conversion to linear DPX components at higher bit depths, if required. Separately, the Canon EOS-1D C’s use of the industry-standard Motion-JPEG codec for 4K motion-image capture supports high-quality post-production, with its HDMI clean-HD output facilitating convenient external recording of a proxy video to support offline editing. The EOS C500 delivers a choice of uncompressed 2K or HD RAW RGB 4:4:4 video (with Canon Log applied) via a 3G-SDI serial output to a range of digital recorders that use solid-state memory packs. Some of these data recorders directly capture the camera’s RGB 4:4:4 video, while others compress prior to recording.

Compositing on the set of the short film "XXIT" 46 47 Behind the scenes of the short film “Max is Back” “The image is so good because you’re still working with a pretty small screen on Avid®, Final Cut Pro® or any of the systems, but the clarity of this is unbelievable.” Tim Solano / Editor BTS FILM EOS C300 on the set of the short film “XXIT” “For visual effects we need very high quality imaging. Because the signal-to-noise ratio of the camera is so quiet and the compression is so good, it works very well for green screen.” Behind the scenes of the short film “Mobius” “I don’t like wasting time – I want to cut now. And it’s just been really fun. It made editing fun again.” Vashi Nedomansky / Editor Sam Nicholson, ASC / Director 48 49 Post-production The Cinema EOS family of four different camera systems was carefully planned as a hierarchy to address a broad range of program genres, production budgets, and a diversity of creative aspirations. While the EOS C500, EOS C300 and EOS C100 all use the same Super 35mm CMOS 4K image sensor and associated digital imaging system, they differ from one other primarily in recording strategies and associated post-production requirements. All recording formats conform to established worldwide standards while associated nonlinear editing and post-production processes are well known. The EOS-1D C uses recording codecs that are different from the other three members of the Cinema EOS family, but they too can be handled simply during post-production. EOS C500 EOS C300 EOS C100 EOS-1D C The EOS C500 offers a broad range of motion-imaging capabilities that conform to contemporary global digital-production standards. Intended for the very highest performance 2K (for cinematography) or HD (high end television production), the EOS C500 delivers uncompressed RAW, high-bit-depth RGB component at high frame rates to external recorders. Additionally, it can also originate uncompressed 4K RAW files – again with two choices – that are externally recorded. In post-production these recorded files require processing which, typically, structures them as RGB DPX files (4K or 2K) that are then sent to the color grading process. The Canon Log setting baked into all of the RAW outputs supports the Digital Intermediate post-production process, which is widespread throughout the motion picture industry. The EOS C300 is tailored to exclusive HD origination; it is ideal for major television production, documentaries, TV commercials and modest-budget moviemaking. The camera records outstanding HD YUV 4:2:2 component video to a pair of Compact Flash cards using the industry standard MPEG-2 MXF 50 Mbps codec, which is recognized worldwide by the majority of post-production systems and almost universally accepted by global broadcast organizations. The EOS C300 is supplied with XF Utility software, a file management program that supports back-up and archive file creation, clip reviewing, metadata editing, file merging and file name updating. Canon MXF plug-ins are supplied for leading NLE systems from Adobe®, Apple®, Avid® and Grass Valley®. The EOS C100 is an HD-only acquisition system, specifically optimized for one-person operation and intended to support a broad range of productions. This cost-effective camera system deploys the widely popular 24 Mbps MPEG-4 AVCHD / H.264 YUV 4:2:0 codec and records to ubiquitous SDXC memory cards. Supplied Data Import Utility software allows such files to be readily imported to a computer workstation. Broad NLE support for this codec ensures seamless integration into established workflows. The EOS C100 also outputs an uncompressed 4:2:2 HD with embedded timecode via an HDMI connector, which can also be used for external recordings brought separately to the post-production process. The EOS-1D C is the world’s first full-frame, hybrid DSLR capable of in-camera capture of 4K motion-imaging. The camera also features two alternative modes of HD motion-image capture. The Motion-JPEG codec used for 4K recording operates at 500 Mbps to CF cards, thereby ensuring intra-frame 4K capture at a modest level of compression. Most post-production houses can readily accommodate this well-known compression format, which integrates simply and with exceptional image performance directly into the color grading process. Similarly, HD recordings using the MPEG-4 AVCHD / H.264 codec can be directly handled by many post-production facilities. If required, these files can be transcoded to other industry-format files. 50 Mbps 4:2:2 HD 1940 x 1080 Proxy Video HD SDI 3G-SDI EOS C500 50 4:2:2 2K or HD 10-bit AVCHD H.264 HD YUV 4:2:0 MPEG-2 50 Mbps 4:2:2 HD 4K/2K RAW HD SDI EOS C300 4K Motion JPEG 4:2:2 Uncompressed 4:2:2 HDMI Clean HD Uncompressed 4:2:2 1920 x 1080 HD HDMI EOS C100 HD MEPG-4 H.264 4:2:0 Uncompressed 4:2:2 Clean HD EOS-1D C 51 An ongoing commitment to service, supportand education 52 With the Canon Cinema EOS System, help is never far.

BTS FILM 61 A DIGITAL CINEMA CAMERA WITH FEW COMPETITORS THE FIRST EVER 4K CANON HYBRID DSLR The Canon EOS C500 4K Digital Cinema Camera is the flagship of the Cinema EOS family. While it features the same Canon-developed Super 35mm 4K CMOS image sensor used in the EOS C300, the EOS C500 offers significantly more contemporary high-resolution motion-imaging choices. Direct readout of the four separate 2K or HD video components from a 4K image sensor eliminates the debayering process, and allows for uncompressed 2K or HD 4:4:4 RGB video components – with an additional choice of 12-bit or 10-bit depth for each – at up to 120P frame rates. These RAW components are output via a 3G-SDI serial interface to external recorders. And, anticipating the increasing move towards 4K production, the EOS C500 camera can be switched to a 4K imaging mode that is user-selectable between cinematography or UHDTV 4K formats. The EOS C500 delivers an uncompressed 4K RAW output to external recorders; in-camera recording to CF cards of an HD proxy of the 2K/HD/4K primary origination can be used for offline editing. The Canon EOS-1D C 4K DSLR Cinema Camera is perhaps the most unique, self-contained motion-imaging system in the world. An unusually innovative video camera utilizing a Canon-developed Full-Frame 18.1 Megapixel CMOS image sensor in a compact DSLR body, it offers digital 4K at 24 fps motion imaging, two separate modes of 16:9 HD motion imaging, and full-frame still images – all captured in-camera on CF cards. The EOS-1D C uses Dual ≥ 5+ Image Processors for powerful RGB video processing that provides extraordinary sensitivity, low noise, superb image quality, and beautiful color reproduction over a wide range of scene lighting conditions. Motion-JPEG compression is used for 4K YUV 4:2:2 recording, and MPEG-4 AVCHD / H.264 codecs for the two HD modes – each at high data rates – ensure excellent image capture performance. The camera is compatible with all Canon Cinema Prime and EF-mount Cinema Zoom lenses, as well as with the wide range of standard EF Lenses. The EOS-1D C is a powerful B-Camera or C-Camera to augment productions using the EOS C500 and/or EOS C300 cameras. BTS 62 FILM BTS FILM 63 CANON’S FIRST ENTRY INTO THE DIGITAL CINEMA MARKET A COMPACT DIGITAL CAMERA WITH HD CAPABILITIES Incorporating Canon’s innovative Super 35mm imaging system, the EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera’s 50 Mbps 4:2:2 XF Codec not only holds up to the most rigorous color correction, but also conforms to worldwide broadcast standards. A pair of Compact Flash slots offers a choice between double slot recording for enhanced security and Relay Recording for continuous roll time. Coupled with its superb low-light performance and filmic grain structure, the EOS C300 offers thoughtful and unique ergonomics that lets it tuck into places that other cameras cannot. Highly modular, the camera can be stripped down for one-man operations or built up with accessories for unison working. Designed specifically as an affordable, high-performance digital cine system, the EOS C100 Digital Video Camera targets a broad range of lower-budget film and video productions with a highly flexible, modular design that supports a variety of single-operator shooting styles. The camera uses the same ultra-precision, Super 35mm imaging system found in both the EOS C500 and EOS C300, thereby originating equally high image quality, sharpness and sensitivity.
