NAB Tech Talks from the AbelCine Booth: Canon

At our NAB Canon Tech Talk, Megan and Paul Hawxhurst, Professional Market Specialist, discussed Canon's new Compact Servo 18-80mm lens, their new multi-purpose ME200 camera, as well as firmware updates for the C100 Mark II, C300 Mark II, and the DP-V2410 4K reference monitor.

The lightweight (2.6 lbs) Compact Servo 18-80mm is a new EF mount lens in a class between Canon's great still lenses and cinema lenses. The lens supports dual pixel auto focus and image stabilization, with the same coating and color as the cinema lenses. With a removable and re-positional handgrip, featuring a rosette to move the zoom and run/stop controls wherever you want, this is a great mid-range lens with a lot of potential for run-and-gun shooters. The lens will be available in August. In the meantime, check out Jeff Lee's pre-NAB Canon blog for another look at the lens.

Canon's new ME200 camera is a little brother to the ME20, with a Super 35 sensor, 204,800 ISO, dual pixel auto focus, and 10-bit 4:2:2 uncompressed output to an external recorder with timecode. The camera also features a removable IR filter and will be available in Q4 2016.

New firmware for the C100 Mark II and C300 Mark II will be available on July 28 and will include the new Canon Log 3, re-worked Canon Log 2 for less noise, dual pixel auto focus for the 17-120mm and 18-80mm, a fully functional Hirose connection on the 17-120mm, and magnification during recording for ease with checking focus. The DP-V2410 firmware update will include Log C interpretation and adds the ability to load ARRI LUTs. Canon has also added a split-screen mode with a very cool feature. One half of the split screen will show Log, and one half will have a LUT applied. The monitor is now also ACES qualified. For more in-depth information, watch the full conversation above.

Client Profiles
Jonathan Barenboim is a director and cinematographer; sometimes, depending on the project, he's both simultaneously. On his latest project, for a series called The Table launching later this summer, he was tasked with bringing to life short documentaries highlighting the human side of the unemployment crisis in the US. Because of the documentary nature of these pieces, he had to be ready to travel quickly and shoot in varied locations, all with the same basic camera setup. Jonathan was kind enough to answer a few questions about how he pulled it all off.
