Compact 4K Versatility
The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera comes as a standalone camera body, excluding the built-in electronic viewfinder, LCD monitor, handle and handgrip accessories that come with the EOS C200B. This allows the user the flexibility to customize the camera with a wide range of accessories to fit their specific needs. The camera’s small form factor allows it to be used in tighter spaces, and more easily attached to a gimbal or drone.
The camera can record internal 4K RAW to a CFast™ 2.0 card in our new Cinema RAW Light format without compromising detail, as well as 4K UHD and Full HD in MP4 format to SD cards. The 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm CMOS sensor, 13 stops of dynamic range, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, full compatibility with Canon EF-mount lenses, and HDR capability help make the EOS C200B ideal for film, documentary and television production, corporate and event videography, and newsgathering. The camera’s multitude of features help deliver outstanding image quality, performance and versatility.

Flexibility for Custom Shooting Situations
The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera comes as a standalone camera body, excluding the built-in electronic viewfinder, LCD monitor, handle and handgrip accessories that come with the EOS C200B. This allows the user the flexibility to customize the camera with a wide range of accessories to fit their specific needs.
The camera's small form factor allows it to be used in tighter spaces and mounted into a variety of gyro-stabilized housings, robotic camera pedestals, on a crane or drone, remotely operated for surveillance activities, hidden inside a racecar or helicopter, or other hard-to-reach locations where the camera is not immediately accessible.
8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm CMOS Sensor
The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera integrates an 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor that supports 4K (DCI) recording with a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. The camera fully utilizes the image data delivered by this 4K CMOS sensor to also enable Over Sampling HD Processing for 2K (DCI) and Full HD 1080/60p recording.
Each pixel in this CMOS imaging sensor also maintains a wide pixel pitch that maximizes the amount of light that falls on to each photo site, thus enhancing the EOS C200B camera’s sensitivity while also minimizing noise and supporting ISO speeds of up to 102,400 for extreme low-light imaging. This sensor also reduces data-readout time, resulting in a reduction in rolling-shutter artifacts.
Dual DiG!C DV 6 Image Processors
The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera features our newly developed dual DiG!C DV 6 image processors, which powerfully process high-resolution image data.
The two on-board DiG!C DV 6 image processors allow for the recording of 1,800 horizontal TV lines in 4K. The DiG!C 6 is Canon’s sixth-generation Image processor that uses proprietary technology, allowing users to achieve high performance and creative freedom when acquiring images.
Internal 4K RAW Recording with New Cinema RAW Light
The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera features Canon's newly developed Cinema RAW Light, a 4K RAW recording file format offering a smaller file size compared to our standard RAW*1 files, while maintaining the same high resolution, high colour reproducibility, and wide dynamic range data to provide dramatically greater freedom in grading and compositing.
Cinema RAW Light files are about 1/3 to 1/5 the size of our standard RAW files. The smaller file size and reduced bit rate speeds up data transfer and allows internal recording to CFast™ cards.
The reduced file size also helps users extend storage capacity and transfer files on a network more easily. The high bit depth of Cinema RAW Light (10bit/12bit*2) maximizes retention of colour and dynamic range information, which is especially critical in HDR production.
*1 Standard RAW: EOS C500/EOS C300 Mark II/EOS C700 camera RAW
*2 12bit for 4K/30p and under, 10bit for 4K/60p and 50p. Each bit is efficiency optimized in consideration of visual properties.
Cinema RAW Light files can be transcoded to other commonly used file formats, such as DPX or ProRes for later editing and online delivery using Canon's CRD software.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology
The EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera features our Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DAF) Technology. DAF is a breakthrough AF technology that uses the CMOS sensor.
Each pixel in the camera's CMOS sensor is configured with two photodiodes. Two independent image signals can then be detected at each photosite. By implementing phase-difference AF, smooth focusing is accomplished using Canon EF lenses with much higher speed and accuracy than was possible with previous technologies- a major advantage during single-operator shooting.
Fully Compatible with New and Existing Canon EF-Mount Lenses
A major aspect of the creative filmmaking potential of the EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera is its compatibility with the full range of more than 100 Canon EF and EF-S photographic lenses (including specialty tilt-shift and fisheye models) and Canon’s 4K CN-E Cinema prime and zoom lenses, including the “ENG-style” Canon CINE-SERVO and COMPACT-SERVO zooms. Improved EF lens communication capabilities of the EOS C200B camera provide the display of CN-E Cinema lens T-values, compatibility with Dual-Pixel CMOS AF, lens metadata acquisition, and chromatic aberration correction.
