Canon EOS C300 MARK II Digital Cinema Camera With 4K/2K/Full HD Recording Launched

Canon India has unveiled the Canon EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema camera at Broadcast India Show in Mumbai today. This is second generation Cinema EOS 4K camera system for cinema, documentary, event and commercial videography, and is packed with a wide range of new and improved features including 4K/2K/Full HD internal and external recording (including 4K RAW output) and a new 10-bit Canon Log 2 Gamma.

The EOS C300 Mark II is redesigned with the help of user input, and helps to deliver more creative flexibility for professional studio motion picture production applications, as well as independent productions, TV dramas, commercials, news features, sports and more.

The camera is available in Canon EF or PL mount versions. The benefit of the EF-mount version is that you can take advantage of Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, which supports a variety of autofocus modes, including continuous AF and Face Recognition when used with compatible Canon EF lenses.

Canon Log Gamma 2

The EOS C300 Mark II features a new log gamma tone curve – Canon Log Gamma 2 – which was designed specifically to help maximize the recording capabilities of the camera. The log format files can be ideal for post-production allowing users to apply processes where corrections, color matching and grading are applied, providing users with a high level of creative freedom in post-production without substantially degrading the image quality.

Canon 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm CMOS Sensor

The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera integrates an 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor that supports 4K (DCI) recording with a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. The camera fully utilizes the image data delivered by this 4K CMOS sensor to also enable Over Sampling HD Processing for 2K (DCI) and Full HD1080/60p recording.

Fully Compatible with New and Existing EF-Mount Lenses

The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera is compatible with the full range of more than 100 Canon EF and EF-S photographic lenses (including specialty tilt-shift and fisheye models) and Canon’s 4K CN-E Cinema prime and zoom lenses (including the “ENG-style” Canon CINE-SERVO zooms). The improved EF lens communication capabilities of the camera provide the display of CN-E Cinema lens T-values, compatibility with Dual-Pixel CMOS AF, lens metadata acquisition, and chromatic aberration correction.

Canon XF-AVC Codec

The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera incorporates the new Canon XF-AVC codec that allows 4K image data to be recorded internally onto CFast (2.0) cards. (The camera features two CFast card slots and an SD card slot.) This makes it easy for users to record high quality compressed 4K images in the camera body without the need for external recorders. If full uncompressed RAW recording is needed, the EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera can output its signal through dual 3G-SDI outputs to an external recorder.

The Canon EOS C300 MARK II Digital Cinema Camera has a price tag of Rs. 12,99,000.
