The Canon EOS C200 scores with very good skin tone reproduction and comparatively uncomplicated RAW handling. Its compact dimensions, good ergonomics and dual pixel AF make the Canon EOS C200 ideal for single operator shooting where compact, fast on-site operation and higher quality post-production are required. The Canon EOS C200 also excels with Canon´s typical high-quality workmanship and good battery performance - a good, integrated viewfinder and, thanks to the additional monitor, a lot of flexibility in image assessment.
But even a compressed codec like Canon RAW Cinema Light does need quite some space (125 MB/s) and we have our doubts that you can get by comfortably with only one CFast slot on more complex projects. The quite noisy fan is also on the negative side.
A good compromise in terms of codec would have been, in our opinion, a 10 bit codec at 400-600 Mbit/s, which records on the dual SD cards. If there should be only 8 bit, as is currently rumored on the internet, Canon gives away a rather big chance for the C200 in a highly competitive market environment, which already offers 10 bit on SD cards.
But maybe Canon does everything right and will surprise everyone again, the Canon EOS C200´s features being sufficient to continue the success story of the Canon EOS C300 (MKI) in 4K with 8 bit recording on SD. The potential is there - but we are forecasting a close race...
