A truly creative and practical 4K production tool for moviemakers and broadcasters

Designed with extensive user input, the EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera delivers improved image expression capabilities and operability advances including in-camera 4K recording to dual CFast card slots and 2K/Full HD recording to an SD card slot, up to 15 stops of dynamic range, 10-bit Canon Log Gamma 2 recording, and MXF support for a diverse array of workflow environments. The camera integrates a totally re-designed imaging system of advanced components, including a newly developed 8.85 Megapixel Canon Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS image sensor, powerful Canon Dual DIGIC DV5 image processors, and the Canon XF-AVC codec. Working together they provide such advantages as Dual-Pixel CMOS AF with an expanded focusing area and Face Detection (when used with Canon EF lenses). They also provide reduced visual noise, and high-sensitivity shooting at a maximum ISO of 102,400 for bright, sharp image capture using only ambient lighting. 

8.85MP Super 35mm CMOS Sensor

An enhanced 8.85MP Super 35mm Canon CMOS sensor, designed specifically for video capture, delivers superb high-resolution images with high sensitivity, low noise and beautifully shallow depth of field.

Creative flexibility

Enjoy an extensive range of high quality creative shooting options with the highly versatile XF-AVC H.264 codec. Shoot stunning 4k video at up to 410Mbps/10-bit for easy integration into existing 4K workflows and easily select the combination of resolution and codec type that best suit your production.

Room to manoeuvre

For maximum freedom in post-production the built-in Canon Log2 captures the maximum range of tones, providing up to 15 stops of Dynamic Range.

Record stunning 4K images internally

Realise your creative vision. Simultaneously record stunning high bit rate 4K/UHD images to dual internal CFast 2.0™ memory cards, 2K proxy files to SD card and output 4K RAW to external devices, for an efficient workflow. Utilise the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording, with higher quality and significantly cleaner results, thanks to Oversampling HD processing.

Easy auto functions

Pick up and shoot. As well as extensive manual controls the EOS C300 Mark II makes life easy for the independent camera operator thanks to innovative automatic features, which let you concentrate on the action. These include Dual Pixel CMOS AF covering approx. 80% vertically and 80% horizontally of the image display, Face Detection AF (with compatible lenses) and Auto white balance so you won't miss the shot. Autofocus has been further enhanced with the ability to select the AF speed (with compatible lenses) and AF subject tracking characteristics ensuring that focusing is more natural.

Superb performance in any light

Shoot anywhere and capture low-noise footage in all kinds of challenging shooting scenarios thanks to a wide ISO range up to ISO 102,400 that delivers enhanced sensitivity and unrivaled low light performance. Built-in ND filters provide a possible further 10 stops of exposure control (in expansion mode) in bright light or when a wide aperture is required.

Reduced rolling shutter artefacts

Sensor readout speed is significantly improved, producing even lower rolling shutter distortion so even subjects on the move maintain their correct shape better.

Wide choice of colour gamuts

The EOS C300 Mark II offers a variety of colour gamuts to suit your workflow and final output medium, including BT.2020, Canon Cinema Gamut and DCI-P3.

High quality audio

The EOS C300 Mark II supports LPCM 24-bit/48 kHz audio for sound quality that is superior to CD. It offers 4-channel input, including a mic jack, internal monaural mic and two XLR terminals, which allow multiple sound sources to be selected and mixed to record sound with a sense of ambience.
