Canon Announces New 4K Cameras -- the C300 Mark II EF and PL Cinema Cameras and the XC10 Camcorder

First Look: Canon Updates Its C300 Line With the Mark II, a 4K Cinema Camera  Featuring Faster and More Accurate Autofocusing, and Also Unveils the Compact XC10, a 4K Professional Camcorder

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 08, 2015) - The Canon C300 Mark II Cinema EOS camera features a Super 35mm CMOS sensor and uses Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, providing faster and more accurate autofocusing to assist users when operating with small crews. The camera is available with either an EF or a PL Lens mount. The EF lens mount 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 PL lens mount features compatibility not only with a broad range of compatible cine lenses from manufacturers like Angenieux and Zeiss, but also with Canon's burgeoning line of EF Cinema lenses for PL mount. The Super 35mm sensor is paired with the Canon DIGIC DV 5 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 CFast 2.0 cards using the XF-AVC codec. 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.
