The EOS C100 is a digital cinema camera made by Canon, announced on August 29, 2012.[1] It was the third camera from the Canon Cinema EOS line to be released, and is the budget camera in the range, being less expensive than both the EOS C300 and EOS C500, going on sale at a recommended price of $7,999 (although currently available for around $5000).[2] However, unlike the other models, it only shoots in Full HD.[1]
