Canon C200 Cinema Raw Light Plug-in for Final Cut 10.4, C300 Mark II Now Compatible with C200 Touchscreen

Final Cut Pro X editors recently got a big upgrade with FCP 10.4 (which you can read all about in our post here) and now Canon C200 users can also enjoy cutting their Canon Cinema Raw Light footage natively in FCP 10.4 thanks to the Canon RAW Plugin 1.0 for Final Cut Pro X that Canon has just released. The current list of NLEs with native support for Cinema Raw Light consists of Avid Media Composer, DaVinci Resolve 14, Edius Pro, and now Final Cut 10.4, with Adobe Premiere Pro joining the compatibility list sometime in 2018 according to Canon. In addition to the new Cinema Raw Light plugin for FCP X, Canon have also released new firmware updates for the majority of their Cinema EOS and specialty camera lineup, which you can see and download via the links below.

Canon C300 Mark II Firmware Update 1.1.0.1.00

  • Support for LCD touchscreen monitor LM-V1 ($699 at B&H) of the C200
  • Peripheral illumination/chromatic aberration correction for the following lenses:
    • EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
    • EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM
    • EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM
  • Download link here.

NOTE: The LA-V1 LCD Attachment Unit cannot be used to attach the LM-V1 monitor to the EOS C300 Mark II / EOS C300 Mark II PL cameras. This leaves (for the moment at least) only party mounting solutions, which are required so that operators can use the C200 monitor on this model camera.

As a Canon C300 II owner, I am quite interested in using the C200 touchscreen monitor, and from what I remember, the EVF cable on the C200 monitor has the same multi-pin connector as the C300 II Audio and Video cables that are used to connect the C300 II monitor unit to the camera body.

This requires further investigation and I shall report with my findings as soon as I find out how to mount the C200 monitor on my C300 II. Having touchscreen AF abilities on the C300 II would be so sweet indeed, and although I can live without the Canon Raw Light codec of the C200, I feel that’s the only think left for Canon to add to the C300 II to make it as close to perfect as possible.

However, I doubt that this will ever happen. It is more likely that we may see the CRL codec make its way to the C300 Mark III than the MK II as a firmware update.

And one more thing  – when using the LM-V1 with the separately-sold WFT-E6 or WFT-E8 Wireless File Transmitter and GP-E1 GPS Receiver, please be sure to maintain space between the two accessories.
