Impressive usability and imaging power combine in the EOS C500 Mark II, the customizable full frame cinema camera that’s built for creative freedom.
The lightweight body comes equipped with Canon’s 5.9K full-frame CMOS sensor capable of over 15 stops of dynamic range. The newly developed DIGIC DV 7 Image Processor expands functionality and flexibility by enabling features such as 5.9K recording, internal recording of Canon Cinema Raw Light and Dual Pixel Autofocus.
The Cinema EOS C500 Mark II is the perfect expression of form and function, exceptionally adaptable to virtually any production with its modular design. Three expansion units and user changeable lens mounts enable operators to build their ideal cinema system.
5.9K Full Frame CMOS Sensor, with support for Super 35mm and Super 16mm crop modes
The Cinema EOS C500 Mark II features Canon’s high-resolution 5.9K (38.1 x 20.1mm) Full Frame CMOS sensor, which offers exceptional low noise and a broad range of tonality with over 15 stops of dynamic range. The sensor’s expansive native cinema gamut goes beyond that of current standards, including ITU-R BT.2020 and DCI-P3, helping the EOS C500 Mark II achieve more natural skin tones and allowing for greater freedom in color grading in both SDR and HDR productions.
The Full Frame sensor is capable of capturing footage in a wide variety of aspect formats, including DCI-4K, UHD and Anamorphic Widescreen. The Cinema EOS C500 sensor supports both anamorphic and spherical lenses. In addition to full-frame, the sensor can also be paired with conventional Super 35mm and Super 16mm lenses using appropriate sensor crop modes, lens mount and adapter.
User Changeable Lens Mounts which gives users freedom to use the lenses they desire
User interchangeable lens mounts and an available B4 mount adapter gives operators the freedom to make bold creative choices based on the subject matter.
The EOS C500 Mark II ships with an EF Mount that can be user swapped to an optional Locking EF (EF-C) or PL mount. Each mount swaps easily by simply removing four M3 hex screws. A shim set is provided with each mount kit in order to adjust back focus for the precision in focusing accuracy that professionals rely on.
Canon Cinema RAW Light and XF-AVC Recording
Thanks to the powerful DIGIC DV 7 image processing platform, the EOS C500 Mark II can record Cinema RAW Light directly to onboard CFexpress cards, which keeps the data-rich signal captured by the 5.9K full-frame sensor intact. Cinema RAW Light offers plenty of freedom for grading in file sizes that are about 1/3 to 1/5 the size of Cinema RAW, offering a great combination in terms of codec efficiency and quality.
Anamorphic Lens Support
The EOS C500 Mark II offers cinematographers anamorphic lens support. Users can now achieve wide cinematic looks and oval bokeh particular to anamorphic glass. It is a distinctly cinematic palette that is within reach for your next project.
Electronic Image Stabilization
The EOS C500 Mark II is the first Canon Cinema EOS camera to feature built-in five-axis electronic IS that works with almost any lens including anamorphic.
4.3” LCD Touch screen Monitor LM-V2
The new LM-V2 4.3” LCD Monitor is an easy to view touch panel with approx. 2.76 million dots. The monitor easily attaches to the EOS C500 Mark II using included accessories and can be adjusted to different viewing positions. In addition to image framing and visual confirmation of camera settings, attached controllers make it easy to access and change camera settings.
Dual Pixel CMOS AF with support for Touch AF and Face Detection AF
The Cinema EOS C500 Mark II features Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology. For DAF, each pixel in the camera’s CMOS sensor is configured with two photodiodes. Two independent image signals can then be detected at each photosite and compared using phase-difference to provide autofocus with compatible lenses. DAF can survey the scene and recognizes not only whether the subject is in focus or not, but in which direction (near or far), and by how much.
4 Channel Audio Recording
With Expansion Unit EU-V2, the EOS C500 Mark II supports up to 4-channel audio recording. Audio input from the camera’s internal microphone, mini mic port, and XLR ports can be assigned to the 4 different audio channels. This flexibility allows a wide range of audio devices to be connected and mixed directly on the camera.
Support for Custom User LUTs
Users can upload and apply custom LUTs to the EOS C500 Mark II. LUTs can be assigned to specific output terminals and the LCD or viewfinder. Clients can be viewing one LUT, while production works from another, giving different production roles the ability to customize the look of the image to their needs.
