The rush is on from all camera manufacturers to make a small HD camera, with all those medical hospital productions like 24 hours in A&E this is the new market for such cameras.
The ME200S-SH Multi-Purpose Camera is equipped with the advanced 16:9 Super 35mm Canon CMOS Image Sensor, the same sensor used in our Cinema EOS cameras.
The large 8.29 megapixel sensor is sensitive in low light, helping to minimize noise, capturing independent Red, Green, and Blue channels for Full HD 1920×1080 video. This large sensor format allows for depth of field control and has dynamic range characteristics reminiscent of film, for truly arresting images.
The ME200S-SH Multi-Purpose Camera allows users to capture subjects even under some of the most challenging low light conditions, helping to deliver an optimum balance between image quality and sensitivity, making it ideal for a wide range of night time and low light applications.
The combined performance of the camera’s Canon Super 35mm CMOS sensor and DIGIC DV 4 Image Processor achieve a very high signal-to-noise ratio that enables recordings with great detail and dynamic range even in minimal light. This advanced performance yields a maximum ISO speed of 204,000 and a wide dynamic range with up to 12 stops.
The high-dynamic-range shooting ability of the ME200S-SH camera helps diminish the loss of dark detail at a low luminous intensity, which tends to arise when shooting under low luminous intensity conditions, and overexposure of the high-brightness areas. The camera’s wide dynamic range of 600% helps to suppress brightness while maintaining seamless gradations
In addition, Canon Log Gamma helps to preserve shadow and highlight detail, for maximum editing and grading in post-production. Contrast and sharpness are subdued with characteristics similar to negative film. Canon Log Gamma emphasizes rich gradients from mid-range to highlights and realizes 12-stops of Dynamic Range (DR). At ISO 850 and above, Canon Log Gamma enables 5.3 stops of latitude above optimal exposure (and 6.7 stops below), broadening the available dynamic range in color grading.

The ME200S-SH camera’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology helps provide smooth and consistent autofocus, so that focus transitions are natural looking and subjects can remain focused even as they move- particularly helpful in remote or gimbal shooting situations.
Even in unpredictable shooting conditions, the camera can maintain focus within the center portion of the frame, and is compatible with select Canon EF autofocus lenses.
The camera’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology features a Super 35mm CMOS sensor that consists of an array of pixels that each feature two separate photodiodes. By continuously comparing their outputs during AF mode, phase-difference autofocus helps ensure non-blurred images and smooth focus transitions even when the talent and/or camera are moving. This feature places a high priority on maintaining sharp focus while, providing a natural, smooth autofocus movement.
