Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
According to this page:
https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/8/1183994
which discusses how to make motion look smooth and with full detail in video shooting with the C100, you need to avoid shooting in Progressive-Scan mode.
That page's discussion also goes into the fact that post-shooting can alter the video this camera produces, some. In other words, mastering and/or publication formats can do things to the video quality also.
This page also discusses, for this camera model, the issue of getting the maximum color range from what you shoot in the way of video, recommending the use of a Canon log (or, C-log) gamma profile:
http://nofilmschool.com/2014/08/get-most-dynamic-range-out-of-canon-c100-c300
Also, setting the shooting by the C100 to be done in PAL (instead of AVCHD) and in 50i, might produce the highest-resolution-per-fraction-of-a-second sort of shooting that this camera is well capable of.
If these tips don't cover what you want to know, let me know the focus of your interest, and I will advise you further if I can.
