The C700 sees extra recording modes when using the Codex CDX-36150 recorder:

  • 4K/QFHD ProRes
  • 4.5K Max 100 fps
  • 4.5K cinescope 120 fps
  • 422 HQ 10 bit 60 fps
  • 2K

The new update also enables an option to upgrade the firmware on the CODEX CDX-36150 RAW recorder

The firmware update for the C100 Mk I deals with lens compatibility, enabling the useful peripheral illumination correction for the following lenses:

  • EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM
  • EF 50mm f/1.8 STM
  • EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-56 IS USM
  • EF 24-105mmf/1.4L IS II USM

The firmware also provides Cinema Servo Lens Support for the CN7x17KAS S*, the CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S* and CN20 x 50 IAS lenses.

The new firmware update for the EOS C100 Mark II comprises a shutter angle priority mode which maintains the shutter angle when the frame rate is changed. The update also enables peripheral illumination correction data for the new EF-24 -105 f/4 L IS USM II lens


The firmware update for the XC- series cameras enables support for the VPG (Video Performance Guarantee) 130 standard for CFast cards.

Canon’s ‘cube’ series of cameras gain new auto exposure modes including Shutter Priority (Tv), Aperture Priority (Av) and Automatic Gain Control (AGC). You will now also be able to select Auto or Manual ND filter operation. Auto white balance has been improved and a 25PsF output option has been added to support monitor connection and viewing when shooting in 25P.

The ME20F-SH gains support for the recently introduced CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S lens, and both cameras will now support the following lenses:

  • EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II USM
  • EF 35mm F1.4L II USM
  • EF 24-105mm F/4L IS II USM

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
