Canon luncurkan ME20F-SH sebuah kamera serbaguna, berbentuk kubus hitam dengan mount EF dan kemampuan untuk menangkap video Full HD. Kelebihan utama kamera ini adalah tingkat sensitifitasnya yang sangat-sangat tinggi.

Pada inti Canon ME20F-SH memiliki sensor CMOS hanya 2,26 megapiksel, diumumkan pertama kali pada tahun 2013, memiliki piksel berukuran 19μm – atau 5.5X lebih besar dari apa yang digunakan di DSLR high-end. Hal ini memungkinkan untuk merekam video 1080 / 60p / 30p / 24p (dan PAL setara) video capture di tingkat cahaya serendah 0,0005 lux pada pengaturan gain maksimum 75 Db, yang setara dengan lebih dari ISO 4.000.000. Seperti kamera film perusahaan profesional, Canon Log dan mode DR lebar yang tersedia untuk menangkap dynamic range yang lebar.

Canon ME20F-SH mendukung lensa EF dan EF-S dengan mekanisme penguncian dan dukungan autofocus. Ada built-in filter neutral density dan IR, yang keduanya dapat dinonaktifkan jika diinginkan.

Sebagai salah satu harapkan, yang ME20F-SH memiliki hampir semua port yang dibutuhkan. Ada output 3G / HD-SDI dan HDMI port, 2.5mm mini-jack dan port 8-pin RS-422 untuk menggunakan Canon remote kontrol. Ada juga jack 3.5mm untuk mic stereo serta port Genlock untuk sinkronisasi beberapa sumber video. Sebuah slot microSD digunakan hanya untuk update firmware.

Kamera dapat dikontrol pada monitor eksternal menggunakan joystick belakang-mount dan lima tombol yang mengelilinginya. ME20F-SH bisa menjadi kamera yang sangat berguna bagi para pembuat film, baik sebagai kamera khusus atau sebagai alat produksi biasa untuk aplikasi tertentu.

Pembuat film bisa merekam adegan sesekali di kegelapan hampir total dengan tetap menjaga warna yang akurat akan mendapatkan keuntungan dari ISO yang supergila tingginya. Dan, kamera bisa berguna dalam lingkungan produksi seperti reality TV atau untuk pembuatan film dokumenter dalam cahaya rendah.

Canon ME20F-SH ini dilepas bulan Desember 2015 ini dengan harga $ 30.000.

Press Release

MELVILLE N.Y., July 30, 2015 – Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today has introduced the Company’s first multi-purpose camera, the new ME20F-SH, which delivers exceptionally high sensitivity to capture Full HD video with a minimum subject illumination of less than 0.0005 lux1 (at maximum 75 dB gain setting, equivalent to an ISO sensitivity of over 4,000,000). Nighttime surveillance and security, cinematic production, reality television, and nature/wildlife documentaries are just some of the ME20F-SH’s many possible usage applications. With the ability to capture color video in extreme low-light conditions and its simplistic and versatile design, the ME-20F-SH Multi-purpose Camera can be easily incorporated into existing infrastructures and systems to provide high-quality video capture even where subjects might not be seen with the naked eye.

Canon’s new multi-purpose camera employs an enhanced version of the 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor for Full HD video use that was originally developed by the Company in 2013. Its compact, modular body design allows easy custom configurations for diverse usage scenarios. While capturing video in extreme low-light conditions often requires the use of infrared illumination (a technique that only yields video in black and white), the ME20F-SH camera achieves impressive high-sensitivity performance enabling the capture of color Full HD video with reduced noise in low-light conditions without the need for infrared illumination.

Ultra-High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor Enables Color Video Capture in Extreme Low-Light Conditions
The ME20F-SH camera’s CMOS sensor has pixels measuring 19 μm square3, which is more than 5.5 times the surface area of the pixels on the CMOS sensor featured in select top-of-the-line interchangeable lens cameras4. Furthermore, the sensor’s pixels and readout circuitry make use of Canon proprietary technologies to achieve both reduced noise and exceptionally high sensitivity on subjects with a minimum illumination of less than 0.0005 lux. This multi-purpose camera allows users to discern subjects under even some of the dimmest lighting conditions, such as environments lit by artificial illumination or under a moonless night sky. Furthermore, similar to Canon’s Cinema EOS System of professional digital cinematography cameras, the ME20F-SH camera includes Canon Log and Wide DR, which make possible a wide dynamic range, delivering high-image-quality video results across a range of illumination environments, from low- to brightly lit conditions.

Canon’s Diverse Interchangeable EF Lens Lineup Enables Wide Range of Imaging Possibilities
The new ME20F-SH employs the same EF mount (Cinema Lock type) as Canon’s SLR cameras and Cinema EOS System-series of professional digital cameras, allowing users to make use of the Company’s extensive lineup of interchangeable EF lenses5. By letting users select the ideal lens based on their shooting or application requirements, taking into consideration such factors as angle of view and level of brightness, this multi-purpose camera facilitates a wide spectrum of imaging possibilities.

Supports various standard video-recording interfaces
Employing output-only 3G/HD-SDI and HDMI terminals, Canon’s ME20F-SH camera enables users working on location to output video via a single cable to a variety of peripheral equipment, including external recorders and monitors. Equipped with a φ2.5mm stereo mini-jack and a round 8-pin jack for RS-422, the multipurpose camera is capable of connecting with Canon’s RC-V100 Remote Controller (released in June 2014; sold separately)6. By allowing users to operate the camera or change settings from a remote location, the camera facilitates video capture from inaccessible locations as well as fixed-point surveillance. Furthermore, a φ3.5mm stereo mini-jack allows the camera to connect with an external microphone, enabling users working on location to output audio and video signals to connected peripheral equipment.

The Canon ME20F-SH is expected to be available in December 2015 at a suggested retail price of $30,000.
