Canon EOS C300
The EF-mount Canon EOS C300 Cinema EOS Camcorder Body with Dual Pixel CMOS AF features a Super 35mm sized CMOS sensor and broadcast quality 50 Mb/s 4:2:2 MPEG-2 codec. This version is upgraded to include a new continuous autofocus function for all Canon autofocus lenses, using Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology. This provides faster and more accurate autofocusing to assist users when operating with small crews.
The EF lens mount on the EOS C300 offers compatibility not only with Canon's existing broad range of DSLR lenses but also with their line of EF-mount CN-E cinema prime and zoom lenses. The Super 35mm sized sensor is paired with the Canon DIGIC III image processor, which uses an innovative method of breaking out red, green, and blue data to enable color performance on a level that would otherwise require three separate chips. The camera records up to Full HD resolution video to CompactFlash cards using the XF codec – at the highest level a 50 Mb/s, 4:2:2 MPEG-2 format, suitable for broadcast use.
Files are recorded using a MXF wrapper that brings together video, audio, metadata, and timecode in a package that is supported from all major professional NLE programs. For more flexibility to adjust your image during post production, the camera also offers Canon's Log gamma mode, which results in excellent tonal reproduction in the highlight and lowlight regions of an image, and an expanded dynamic range.
