First Look: Canon C500 Mark II


Canon has just announced the return of the EOS C500 Cinema Camera with the new C500 Mark II. Capable of more than 15 stops of dynamic range, the newly added 5.9k full-frame sensor is sure to bridge the gap for documentary and feature filmmakers, making it the most outstanding feature of this new cinema camera.

Meanwhile, the newly developed DIGIC DV 7 Image Processor expands functionality and flexibility by enabling features such as 5.9k recording, internal recording of Canon Cinema Raw Light, and Dual Pixel Autofocus with support for Touch AF and Face Detection AF. Three expansion units and compatibility with EF and PL* lenses with user-changeable lens mounts enable operators to build their ideal cinema system. Also included is anamorphic lens support and electronic image stabilization, making it a great option for filmmakers who want flexibility and portability.
