The Canon Cinema System: C300 and C300PL



In an event with as much fanfare as any Hollywood movie premiere, Canon EOS finally released what we’ve all been waiting for, The Canon EOS C300.  Not truly a DSLR and definitely not your traditional cinema rig, this tiny wonder will lead their full frontal assault on RED and Arri.  Here’s the specs thus far:

  • The C300 has an EF mount supporting Canon’s own extensive line of still photography lenses.
  • C300 PL has the popular Arri “Positive Lock” PL mount is compatible with a broad range of third-party PL-mount lenses
  • Single 8.3 megapixel 2160×3840 Super-35 CMOS sensor (4K resolution) with Digic DV III processor
  • Canon XF codec (50Mbps 4:2:2 1080p30 MPEG2 MXF) records to two Compact Flash card slots
