C100 Mk. II - Need help with "Visual Assist"

[ Edited ]

Hello!

 

Recently purchased two c100 MK II for a documentary. We are planning to shoot in CP9 CINEMA w/ visual assist. However, when I flip on Visual assist little to nothing happens. The image still looks very flat and hard to judge exposure on. Am I missing something here? The waveform barely moves at all, if any.

 

On the c300 and c500 visual assist clearly brings the image to a contrasty 709 look. (Have used both systems)

 

Thank you very much!

Hello BinaryBlowfish, 

When shooting on the EOS C100 Mark II, for the view assist to be functional, the camera should be set to record Canon Log Gamma.  Is your EOS C100 Mark II set to that?  It will not appear in your recordings.  Do you see "V.ASSIST" on the screen when you activate that from the camera menu?

Yes. The C100 MK II is set to CP9 (CINEMA). V. ASSIST is turned on indicated by the yellow icon on the display.
