Canon has unveiled its latest Super 35mm cinema camera, the EOS C300 Mark III. Like the C500 Mark II, the camera offers the same modular design; indeed, the C300 Mark III has exactly the same body as the C500 Mark II, which bodes well for compatibility with underwater housings made for its full-frame sibling.
The C300 Mark III is built around a new Dual Gain Output (DGO) sensor and new DIGIC DV7 video processor. The new DGO system, which is supported at up to 4K/60p, captures more than 16 stops of dynamic range by reading out each pixel through two separate gains, one prioritizing saturation in highlight areas and the other prioritizing lower noise in the shadows.
The C300 Mark III can record 4K DCI/UHD at up to 120fps and 2K/HD at up to 180fps with 4:2:2 10-bit XF-AVC recording. The camera offers 5-axis electronic image stabilization, Dual Pixel CMOS AF at up to 120fps, and compatibility with EF and PL lenses (with optional mount kit) as well as anamorphic and spherical lenses. There’s also support for Canon Log 2 and Log 3, User LUT for applying custom LUTs, as well as two CFexpress media card slots.
Available “later in 2020,” the EOS C300 Mark III will have an estimated retail price of $10,999.
