The Canon EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera is an evolutionary 2nd generation Cinema EOS 4K camera system 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. This powerful new camera also features an expanded dynamic range of 15 stops, improved Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus, innovative focus assist engineering and CFast recording technology. Redesigned with the help of user input, the EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera 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 EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera integrates a re-designed imaging system of advanced components. These include a newly developed 8.85 Megapixel Canon Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS image sensor that supports up to 4K (DCI) recording with a maximum resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels and a high-speed readout for reduced rolling-shutter distortion. Working in concert with its dual Canon DIGIC DV5 image processors, data from the 4K sensor delivers Over-Sampling HD Processing for reduced-moiré 2K(DCI)/Full 1080-60p HD recording and Dual-Pixel CMOS Auto Focus with an expanded focusing area and Face Detection (in combination with Canon EF lenses). The dual DIGIC DV5 image processors also help to reduce visual noise and enable high-sensitivity shooting at a maximum speed of ISO 102,400 (+54dB) for sharp, clear image capture using only ambient lighting. In addition to its sensor and processors, the EOS C300 Mark II camera also incorporates a trio of XF-AVC H.264 codecs that enable in-camera 4K (DCI) recording to dual CFast card slots and 2K/Full HD recording to an SD card slot. For external recording and monitoring, twin 3G-SDI outputs capable of 4K RAW output are included on the rear of the camera body Users can choose among multiple recording modes, resolutions and frame rates to meet their production needs.
Creative flexibility is also greatly enabled by the EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera’s compatibility with the full range of more than 100 Canon EF and EF-S photographic lenses (including specialty tilt-shift and fisheye models) and Canon CN-E Cinema prime and zoom lenses (including the "ENG-style" Canon CINE-SERVO zooms). New Dual-Pixel CMOS AF capabilities of the EOS C300 Mark II are enabled by the AF motors in Canon EF lenses. The improved EF lens communication capabilities of the EOS C300 Mark II camera allow for the display of CN-E Cinema lens T-values, lens metadata acquisition, and chromatic aberration correction on the camera’s LCD Monitor/EVF/Output display.
Operability improvements of the Canon EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera that further facilitate operation and creative freedom include full manual control, an Ultra-High Resolution 1.77 Megapixel color OLED EVF with adjustable 60º tilting angle, a built in internal mono reference microphone, a removable hand grip, an improved camera handle extension with additional attachment points, and a removable LCD Monitor and control panel with XLR inputs. The modular design of the EOS C300 Mark II camera also allows for many kinds of industry-standard accessories to be added or removed as needed. Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi functionality allows for LiveView camera display at multiple locations and control of the EOS C300 Mark II camera from a Web browser.
Dual DiG!C DV 5 Image Processors
The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera's re-designed imaging system includes dual DiG!C DV 5 image processors, which work in concert with the camera's advanced Super 35 CMOS sensor and XF-AVC codec to enable a wide variety of image quality and feature improvements. These include 15 stops of dynamic range, Canon Log 2 recording, Dual Pixel CMOS AF, simultaneous 4K and HD proxy recording, and 2K/Full HD frame rates of up to 120 fps.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology
The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera features the newest generation in Canon Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology. Each pixel in the camera's CMOS sensor is configured with two photodiodes. Two independent image signals can then be detected at each photosite. By implementing phase-difference AF, smooth focusing is accomplished using Canon EF lenses with much higher speed and accuracy than was possible with previous technologies.
The DAF focusing area has been expanded on the EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera to approximately 80% (vertically) x 80% (horizontally) of the image area. The focusing area can also be moved using the camera's 4-direction key, allowing the user more control of AF operation.
Slow- and Fast-Motion Recording (Up to 120 fps)
The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera features shooting speeds ranging from 1 fps (for time-lapse filming) to its highest speed of 120 fps (in 2K/Full HD). A wide range of expressive effects are made possible for creative digital filmmaking.
A new feature is ‘Looks’. These are baked in color adjustments that match the Log settings of other popular cinema cameras such as the ARRI Alexa and Sony F55. This should mean that the C300 mkII can be intercut as a B or C camera when used alongside those other cinema cameras. This reflects the reality that on larger budget productions the ARRIs and Sonys are still more popular than Cinema EOS cams. The C300 and now the C300 mkII are more likely to be used as supplementary cameras on brushless gimbals or rigged inside vehicles.
