  •          4.5K Max 100 fps
  •          4.5K cinescope 120 fps
  •          422 HQ 10 bit 60 fps

  •          EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-56 IS USM

The firmware also provides Cinema Servo Lens Support for the CN7x17KAS S*, the CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S* and CN20 x 50 IAS lenses.

Canon C100 Mk II
The C100 Mk II’s new firmware enables a shutter angle priority mode which maintains the shutter angle when the frame rate is changed.

Update also enables peripheral illumination correction data for the new EF 24-105 f/4 L IS USM II lens. This will compensate for any changes in T-stop throughout the zoom range of the lens.

Canon ME20F-SH and ME200S-SH
Both cameras gain new auto exposure modes including Shutter Priority (Tv), Aperture Priority (Av) and Automatic Gain Control (AGC). You will now also be able to select Auto or Manual ND filter operation. Auto white balance has been improved.

The ME20F-SH gains support for the recently introduced CN-E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S lens, and both cameras will now support the following lenses:

  •          EF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6L IS II USM
