The Canon C300 Mark II Dual Pixel (EF) is a professional-grade 4K cinema camera and an update to the popular Canon EOS C300 Dual Pixel CMOS AF EF-Mount Camcorder. Key features include:

  • Captures DCI 4K video at 24/25/30 fps

  • Dual-pixel CMOS autofocus

  • 15 stops of dynamic range

  • Super 35mm sensor

In-Camera 4K Recording. The Canon C300 Mark II Dual Pixel captures 4096 × 2160 4K (that’s DCI, not UHD) at 24/25/30 fps internally in a trio of XF-AVC H.264 codecs. Twin 3G-SDI outputs enable 4K RAW output to a supporting external recorder for maximum quality. It also offers oversampling HD for capturing 2K/Full HD video at a variety of frame rates up to 120 fps.

Canon 8.85 Megapixel Super 35mm CMOS Sensor. This new 16:9 CMOS sensor provides 4K capture, but it also improves on many of its predecessor’s already great specs. The Dual DiG!C DV 5 image processors offer 15 stops of dynamic range (12 stops in the original), improved high ISOperformance up to 102.400 and a high-speed readout for reduced rolling-shutter distortion.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF. This upgraded system has phase-detection autofocus with two photodiodes at each pixel, offering greatly improved speed and accuracy. The horizontal and vertical focus areas have been expanded to 80%, giving you maximum coverage for tracking your subject. The new Dual Pixel Focus Guide feature displays focus-assist information on the screen, enabling the user to easily see front and back focusing.

Canon Log Gamma 2. Designed to take advantage of the C300 Mark II’s 10-bit recording capability, the files produced using Log format enable a large degree of color correction/grading in post-production with minimal image degradation. Canon touts that it offers dynamic range up to 1600%.

Canon EF Lens Mount. The C300 Mark II is compatible with all of Canon’s servo-zooms, EF Cinema, and EF lenses—over 100 lenses, including compact primes, super telephotos, specialty tilt-shifts, macros, and fisheyes.

Refined Ergonomics. Like its predecessor, the Mark II features a modular design with removable components depending on your needs. Besides a different layout for buttons, memory cards, battery, and input/outputs, the Mark II also includes an improved low-angle top handle with additional mounting points. There’s a new 1.77MP OLED EVFthat provides greater color reproduction, contrast, and response.

Connectivity. The camera is equipped with two 3G-SDI, a genlock input, a time code input/output, and an HDMIoutput. Additionally, the camera’s various “assist-displays”—including waveform monitor, edge monitor, peaking, zebra, and magnify—can be output through SDI and HDMI. The C300 Mark II comes standard with two UN-5 1.6ft audio/video cables. If you need more flexibility in mounting, we also rent the Canon UN-10 3.3ft Monitor Cable Pair for C300 Mark II.

Dual CFast 2.0 Slots. To support the high amount of data transferred for 4K capture, the C300 Mark II records to CFast 2.0 memory cards. There’s also a single SD card slot for simultaneously capturing 2K/Full HD video and proxy recording.
