The Canon EOS C300 Mk II is a professional 4K cinema video camera and replaces the popular C300. The C300 MK II features a Super 35 CMOS sensor that records Ultra HD/4K internally at up to 29.97 frames per second (fps), and 2K/Full HD up to 120 fps.
The EF-mount Cinema EOS C300 Mk II Camcorder Body with Dual Pixel CMOS AF features a Super 35mm CMOS. This provides faster and more accurate autofocusing to assist users when operating with small crews. Canon’s Log 3 Gamma supports 14 stops of dynamic range.
The EF lens mount on the EOS C300 offers compatibility not only with Canon’s existing broad range of DSLR lenses but also with their line of EF-mount CN-E cinema prime and zoom lenses.
The Super 35mm sensor is paired with the Canon DIGIC DV 5 image processor, which uses an innovative method of breaking out red, green, and blue data to enable color performance on a level that would otherwise require three separate chips. The camera records up to 4K DCI resolution video to CFast 2.0 cards.
For more flexibility to adjust your image during postproduction, the camera also offers Canon’s Log gamma mode, which results in excellent tonal reproduction in the highlight and lowlight regions of an image, and an expanded dynamic range.
In terms of connections, the camcorder features two 3G-SDI outputs, timecode I/O, and genlock input BNCs. The body has a modular design that can either be stripped down completely or be built up using the included handle, 4″ rotating LCD unit with full controls, grip, and thumb rest.
The Canon C300 Mark II also features improved dynamic range, operation, processing, audio and autofocus.
UHD 4K recording and 15 Stops of dynamic range.
The Canon EOS C300 Mk II can record 10-bit 4:2:2 files internally at up to 410Mbps in 4K, or 10/12-bit 4:4:4 files in 2K/Full HD, and with up to 15 stops of dynamic range. The high bit rates produces crisp and wide colour spectrum videos, while the high dynamic range captures more details in dark shadows and bright highlights.
2K/Full HD video recording at 120 FPS
The EOS C300 Mk II is also capable of recording slow motion, 120 frames per second footage at 2K/Full HD. The camera’s sensor read-out speed is now twice as fast as the C300 MK I, and reduces rolling shutter distortion, allowing for crisp image capture in a moving environment, making it perfectly suited for capturing action sequences.
Super 35mm CMOS sensor with great low light performance
A new Canon-designed Super 35mm CMOS sensor delivers an increased light sensitivity for an ISO range from ISO 100 up to ISO 102,400, for exceptional low light performance, and low-noise videos.
EF Mount (Interchangeable to PL mount)
This version of the EOS C300 Mk II utilises a Canon EF mount that is compatible with all of Canon’s EF and EF-S lenses, including the special tilt-shift lenses, and features Canon Cine servo zoom lens support. The mount is also interchangeable (through a service) to a PL mount for even more lens options.
