5.9K Full Frame sensor packed into a newly developed compact and reliable Cinema EOS body, this camera provides new inspiration and great flexibility for all cinematographers.
Canon’s own developed 5.9K full frame CMOS sensor delivers an immersive cinematic look combined with natural, smooth skin-tones and faithful colour reproduction with Canon colour science.
The sensor also provides 15+ stop latitude with a wide colour space, perfect for High Dynamic Range productions.
The EOS C500 Mark II features a newly developed DIGIC DV 7 image processor which enables Cinema RAW Light recording internally at 5.9K, as well as supporting recording of Canon’s XF-AVC format in 4K 4:2:2 10-bit. Simultaneous recording of the same file format is possible to the dual CFexpress card slots, with an additional SD card slot for proxy files.
This multi-recording format provides efficiency and fulfils production requirements.
Record Cinema RAW Light internally at up to 2.1Gbps
Record XF-AVC up to 810Mbps
The EOS C500 Mark II uses a high-quality debayering algorithm when over sampling 5.9K for 4K/UHD recording. This suppresses moiré and reduces noise, resulting in a superior quality image.
Approx. 1,750g lightweight body enables it to be comfortably rigged with gimbals, hand-held rigs, making it ideal for various shooting conditions.
Optional Extension Units offer a flexible modular design and configuration capability to cater for a variety of production requirements.
Extension Unit EU-V1 offers additional connectivity such as a Genlock interface, while Extension Unit EU-V2 adds further interfaces, including two more XLR inputs and a V-Lock battery mount for extended recording times. Extension Unit EU-V3 is designed for multi-camera live productions with Tally and Return Signal support. The optional EVF -V50 viewfinder is ideal for hand-held use and it is easily removable for gimbal applications.
The EOS C500 MARK II features Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology which offers high-speed Continuous AF and reliable Face Detection up to 120p. Users also benefit from smooth, intuitive touch focus operation with the new 4.3-inch LCD monitor LM-V2, as well as an improved focus control that recreates a more natural focus pull. To further fine tune AF performance, the EOS C500 MARK II offers the ability to set the AF tracking speed and response.
* with compatible lenses
EOS C500 Mark II is the first Cinema EOS camera to incorporate Electronic Image Stabilization (IS) into the camera body, supporting 5-axis camera shake correction. Even when used with lenses with no electronic lens communication, Electronic IS is possible by manually inputting the focal length.
The EOS C500 Mark II supports high frame rate recordings up to a maximum 50/60 fps at 5.9K. In 2K (crop) mode, settings from 1fps to a maximum 120fps can also be made, increasing creative possibilities. The new Slow & Fast button gives quick access for Slow & Fast settings.
