Canon Releases New EOS Cinema Cameras
By Joseph Tepper, September 5, 2012 @ 08:00 AM (EST)


Canon has announced two new cameras into its lineup of EOS cinema cameras. The first, the EOS C500 is a cinema-quality camera boasting the ability to shoot and export at 4K resolution. 

The camera, the upgrade of the EOS C300, features frame rates of up to 120 fps and the option to record in HD or 2K resolution. In addition to the body, Canon has also confirmed four lenses: he EF mount CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L S and CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L S, and the same optics in PL mount. 

The other body, a professional level camera, is the EOS C100: the “budget addition” to the line. The C100 records full HD video at a bitrate of 24Mbps and can output uncompressed video directly to an external recorder.
