Canon has released new firmware with 17 updates for its Cinema EOS System cameras and professional 4K reference displays.
The camera firmware provides the following improvements:
- Added lens compatibility between the EOS C700 FF, EOS C700/C700GS, EOS C300 Mark II, EOS C200 and the today-launched CINE-SERVO lens – the CN10X25 IAS S – to include various support functions such as Dual Pixel CMOS AF functions, Chromatic Aberration and Peripheral Illumination Correction functions and the Lens Meta Data recording.
- XF-AVC Long GOP and XF-AVCvi Proxy recording formats added to the EOS C500 Mark II to meet industry requirements and for compatibility with multiple workflows.
- Simultaneous HDMI and SDI output with the EOS C200 – increasing the flexibility of the camera. As a result, professionals can use two output terminals for different purposes such as adding a recorder and a reference monitor while also recording internally.
New firmware for the DP-V3120, DP-V2421, DP-V2420, DP-V2411, DP-V2410, DP-V1711, and DP-V1710 professional 4K reference displays includes the following improvements:
- The monitor’s brightness increases from 300nit to 600nit and, with boost mode ON, brightness can be extended to a maximum 1000nit with the DP-V1711 and DP-V1710vii
- DP-V2411, DP-V1711 and DP-V1710viii have an added global dimming function, even with brightness boost ON, and can now perform up to 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
- Support for reading of 3D-LUT/1D-LUT files in the .cube file format widely used in the video production industry.
- Enhanced coordination with digital cinema cameras from RED Digital Cinema through support for two types of LUT presets for converting video signals from RED Digital Cinema cameras into HDR (PQ)/SDR
- During shooting or editing operations, checking the XY chromaticity value of pixels will be possible as well as the coordinate position on the chromaticity diagram for ITU-R BT.2020 colour gamut video.
