Canon EOS C300 Cinema EOS Camcorder Now Available in Two Versions


The Cinema EOS C300 is now available in two versions, with the new model featuring continuous autofocus for all Canon EF and supported third-party lenses. The camera targets documentarians, wedding and event shooters, and filmmakers looking for the added value of a Super35 sensor in a camera that is still compact enough to be considered handheld. The oversampled image from its 4K sensor is converted to 1080p HD and recorded in-camera in the 4:2:2, 50 Mbps Canon XF codec. An SDI output means it is also possible to send an uncompressed 10-bit signal to an external recording device for even higher-quality acquisition.

In addition to the EF-Mount autofocus version, there remains a non-auto focus PL mount option and a non-autofocus version of the EF model―the latter can be upgraded to support AF by Canon for additional cost after it has been purchased. In addition to the body-only package, the AF version is exclusively available paired with the 24-70 f/2.8 II L Series lens.
