Two videos showing the ISO Performance of the Canon Cinema EOS C200
You can download the Canon Cinema RAW Light file from the ISO test utilizing the link at the bottom of the article.
With the camera’s performance at 25600 ISO I did not see the point of attempting to record extended ISO ranges.
First video shows the following:
This sequence shows the C200 mounted with a Rokinon Xeen 14mm T3.1.
In order to achieve the high ISO without over exposing the frame, the built in ND filters were utilized as well as varying apertures. I did not extend the ISO range past 25,600. With the camera’s performance at 25600 ISO I did not see the point of attempting to record extended ISO ranges. The camera can extend its ISO to over 100,000.
The camera was pointed at the front door as well to establish some semblance of an amateur dynamic range test (see the future for results of dynamic range).
The clips were editing in Adobe Premiere and rendered out as h264, through Adobe’s own Youtube 4K preset. Not great I know, as youtube only allows for 8 bit video, and through its own compression will eliminate a considerable amount of noise. Take that in to consideration though, knowing that Youtube compresses some noise out, if you find that there is far too much noise in ISO ranges you prefer to be able to work under or close to there being too much noise, know that the RAW file will be more detailed but also more riddled with noise.
The clips were originally recorded in 4K Raw, and processed as Rec2020 in C-Log 2.
Second video shows the following:
The second sequence shows the C200 without any lens, instead the body cap was placed over the sensor and the ISO was increased in increments.
The clips were editing in Adobe Premiere and rendered out as h264, through Adobe’s own Youtube 4K preset, at a CBR of 40Mbps.
- WARNING – It is a 19 GB sized file
I will leave this file up until November 1, 2017
