Canon Camera Accessory Guide

Canon's Cinema EOS camera lineup includes the C100 MK II, C200, C300 MK II, C700, and the new C700 FF. Canon and other manufacturers offer many different accessory options to tailor these already flexible cameras to each shooter's tastes and quirks. In this guide, we provide a quick overview of the most essential tools to take your rig to the next level. Find your model below to explore the choices.

Canon C100 MK II

While the C100 Mk II features a built-in stero microphone, you can enhance your captured audio with an on-board super cardioid shotgun mic and a shock mount. And, everyone needs a spare BP-955 Li-Ion Battery Pack (LEDs will display battery life at the touch of a button for quick reference). Be sure to protect your C100 MK II in inclement weather with a wetSuit designed to reduce unwanted sound from rain or wind. This camera cover also provides access to controls through vinyl windows.

 

Canon C200

Build out your Canon EOS C200 camera rig with the Zacuto Recoil Pro Gratical Eye Bundle, and power your C200 (or C300MK II) with 45Wh of power from the BP-A30 battery pack. The ARRI Master Grip Zoom set lets you control camera run/stop and compatible zoom lenses with with a finger wheel for focus/iris and a speed-adjustable ergonomic rocker for zoom. You can easily mount your on-board monitor, such as SmallHD's 502 or Canon's own 4" LM-V1 LCD Monitor, with an ARRI Monitor Bracket. Don't forget to grab a spare BP-A30 Battery Pack for long shoot days.

 

Canon C300 MK II

There are a wide variety of accessories available for the C300 MK II. Create a cage for your C300 MK II with the Wooden Camera Unified Accessory Kit, featuring top plate, rods, and top handle (drilled out with plenty of mounting points or "cheese"). You can power your C300 MK II with either the BP-A30 or the BP-A60 Battery Pack, then recharge your packs with the CG-A10 Simultaneous Charger. If you're an EVF-only shooter, you can ditch the upper "clamshell" assembly with LCD screen and use a dedicated audio input module in one of the camera's shoe mounts. Plus, Jason Cases makes an excellent camera case, available with a variety of laser-cut foam layouts, depending on your kit, to protect your camera during storage or travel. 

 

Canon C700

Wooden Camera's D-Box is a great way to eliminate messy external cabling on your C700. This custom power distribution box also delivers hot swap capability and pairs well with your ARRI Master Grips. If you prefer a shoulder rig, check out the ARRI Cine Pro Set for C700 with 15mm rods, shoulder pad, top plate, and baseplate. Featuring a zebra and false color display, the EVF-V70 OLED Viewfinder also offers four assignable buttons and a magnification mode for critical focus. In a studio environment, Canon's RC-V100 goes beyond traditional "paint boxes" and offers run/stop, shutter/gain, FIZ, as well as menu setting adjustments.

 

Canon C700 FF

While all of the accessories for the C700 will also work with the FF, to make sure you nail critical focus on the C700 FF with full format sensor, choose an on-board ATOMOS Shogun Inferno 4K Monitor/Recorder and support it with AbelCine's own Cameo Swivel Mount.
