  • Remarkable image quality
  • Superb AF with EF lenses
  • Maximum post-production freedom

Capture and see new levels of image quality

  • Shoot superb high-resolution images
  • Highly versatile XF-AVC codec

Shoot superb high-resolution images

  • An enhanced 8.85MP Super 35mm Canon CMOS Sensor, designed specifically for video capture, delivers superb high-resolution images with high sensitivity, low noise and exceptional detail.

Advanced Full HD image processing

  • Over-Sampling HD Processing is an advanced debayering algorithm for image processing that effectively utilises the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording. The Canon EOS C300 MkII captures a 4K image, the RGB channels are separated into three individual 8-megapixel 4K signals and the 4K RGB signals are then multiplexed and scaled down internally into a Full HD (1920x1080) signal. This improves the perceived resolution and allows you to record a significantly cleaner Full HD image.
  • High Dynamic Range images with Canon Log 3*, Log 2, Log and Wide DR Gamma

Canon Log

  • The original Canon Log setting is installed in all cameras in the Cinema EOS range. It achieves a dynamic range of up to 12 stops and delivers excellent results with relatively simple grading.

Canon Log 2

  • Canon Log 2 increases Dynamic Range up to 15 stops. This curve is highly compatible with well-established Cineon workflows for maximum grading flexibility and particularly adept at maintaining shadow detail.

Canon Log 3*

  • Canon Log 3 gives an extended Dynamic Range of up to 14 stops and shares the relatively easy grading characteristics of the original Canon Log while retaining greater highlight detail.

*May require a firmware upgrade.

Enhanced processing power with Dual DIGIC DV5

  • Using Canon’s Dual DIGIC DV5 processors the Canon EOS C300 MkII has significantly more processing capability than its predecessor, enabling high bit rate 4K movies to be recorded, together with support for Canon Log 2 Gamma and many other key camera functions.

Capture moving subjects more accurately

  • A significantly improved sensor readout speed produces even lower rolling shutter distortion – so even subjects on the move maintain their correct shape better.

An easy realisation of your creative visions

  • Record stunning 4K images internally
  • You can simultaneously record stunning 4K/UHD images at up to 410Mbps/10-bit to dual internal CFast 2.0™ memory cards, benefiting from the VPG130 standard, which guarantees a sustained write speed of at least 130Mbps.* 2K proxy files can be stored on SD card and 4K RAW footage output to external devices, for an efficient workflow. Utilise the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording, with higher quality and significantly cleaner results, thanks to Oversampling HD processing.

* May require a firmware update

  • Canon is an authorised licensee of the CFast 2.0™ trademark, which may be registered in various jurisdictions.

Auto features: just pick up and shoot!

  • The Canon EOS C300 MkII’s innovative automatic features let you concentrate on the action. These include Dual Pixel CMOS AF with 80% vertical and 80% horizontal coverage, Face Detection AF (with compatible lenses) and Auto white balance so you won't miss the shot. Enhanced AF offers the ability to select the AF speed (with compatible lenses) and AF subject tracking characteristics ensure that focusing is more natural.

Shoot with confidence in any light

  • Shoot anywhere and capture low-noise footage in all kinds of challenging shooting scenarios thanks to a wide ISO range up to ISO 102,400 that delivers enhanced sensitivity and unrivalled low light performance. Built-in ND filters provide a possible further 10 stops of exposure control (in expansion mode) in bright light or when a wide aperture is required.

High-quality audio superior to CD

  • The Canon EOS C300 MkII supports LPCM 24-bit/48 kHz audio for sound quality that is superior to CD. It offers 4-channel input, including a mic jack, internal monaural mic and two XLR terminals, which allow multiple sound sources to be selected and mixed to record sound with a sense of ambience.

Huge interchangeable lens choice, EF and PL mounts

  • Expand your creative options by shooting with more than 90 of Canon's current interchangeable EF and EF Cinema lenses. Servo zoom support further increases shooting versatility. The Canon EOS C300 MkII's EF lens mount can be switched to EF mount with Cinema Lock or to PL mount, and back again by an approved Canon service centre.

Seamlessly integrate with professional workflows

  • New XF-AVC format for easy integration
  • The newly developed XF-AVC 4K file format is easily integrated into existing workflows, while a simultaneous recording of 2K or Full HD Proxy files to the SD card in the same format, further increases efficiency in post-production.

Wide choice of colour gamuts

  • The Canon EOS C300 MkII offers a variety of colour gamuts to suit your workflow and final output medium, including BT.2020, Canon Cinema Gamut and DCI-P3.
