DAF technology for Canon EOS C100
Canon today announced a major improvement in their professional camcorder EOS C100, which will incorporate from now technology functions include Dual Pixel CMOS AF (DAF). First introduced in the spectacular digital SLR camera EOS 70D, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF is an innovative technology developed by Canon that can extend the recording capabilities thanks to a continuous, rapid auto focus and advanced features on video cameras Sensors. The EOS C100 is the first camcorder that incorporates this new technology, which implies an even greater creative flexibility in all types of recordings.
Making it easier for solo video recorders to get excellent moving pictures is part of the basic design philosophy of the EOS C100. DAF technology further enhances the creative freedom by offering greater precision and control autofocus during recording, which is a fundamental factor given the limited depth of field that can be achieved by the combination of bright lenses and sensors Image. Continuous auto focus is possible with all Canon EF lenses, while the current Photo-to-Photo AF becomes almost twice as fast with any of the 104 compatible lenses.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF is a Sensor Based Phase Detection AF (AF) technology that has been designed to be compatible with video recording. For this, an incorporated CMOS sensor supported in the original design of the EOS C100. Thanks to new technical developments after its launch, now the camcorder can be improved to offer users greater functionality and added value.
Although the Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology based on the sensor of the EOS C100 is similar to that of the Canon EOS 70D DSLR, it has been adapted to fit the features and possibilities of the EOS C100. The technology has been specially optimized for video recording and provides a quick and natural approach, in a familiar visual style. Therefore, capturing a subject and keeping it focused, even if it moves, is easier than ever.
Kieran Magee, Director of Professional Marketing, Canon has commented that: “We are dedicated to developing innovative products image at the same time provide a great value for users. We are very proud of our current EOS Cine System, and we also constantly listen to our customer’s suggestions for ways to improve our products, so that they can expand their own creative limits. This enhancement, which involves the incorporation of Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology into the EOS C100, is yet another sign of our commitment to that.”
