Create cinema-quality productions with the Canon EOS C300 Mark III Digital Cinema Camera, which features a Super 35mm Dual Gain output sensor with up to 16 f-stops with high dynamic range for superb HDR shooting and low noise. The EF lens mount is compatible not only with Canon’s wide range of DSLR lenses, but also with Canon’s EF lenses for cinematography, zoom lenses and even 2.0 and 1.33 anamorphic lenses. The connector can also be exchanged by the end user for a PL connector, which is available separately.The sensor is paired with the Canon DiGIC DV7 image processor, which uses the raw data from the sensor and processes it for various applications such as high frame rate recording, raw data recording, HDR-PQ output, electronic image stabilization (EIS) and proxy recording. The camera records video at up to DCI 4K resolution on two CFexpress cards, and an SD card slot is available for capturing additional images. High frame rates up to 120 fps can be recorded in 4K raw format and up to 180 fps in 2K cropped mode. Canon’s Cinema RAW Light and XF-AVC recording formats are supported and deliver DCI 4K images with a 10-bit, 4:2:2 Long GOP codec. Proxy recording is also supported, which can greatly increase the speed of your post-production.

For more flexibility during post-production, the camera also offers Canon Log 2 and Log 3 gamma modes, resulting in excellent tonal reproduction in the light and dark areas of an image and an extended dynamic range. The C300 Mark III also supports custom LUTs that can be used on monitors, the LCD display or in the viewfinder to ensure the most accurate color reproduction possible. Canon’s dual-pixel CMOS AF (autofocus) support not only gives you precise autofocus, but also features touch AF and face detection.

The camera has up to 12G-SDI output via a single BNC cable, time code I/O and genlock input BNCs. It supports up to 4-channel audio via the internal microphone, mini-microphone input and XLR connectors, and an expansion unit can be added to support up to four XLR inputs. The enclosure has a modular design that can either be completely disassembled or assembled using the supplied handle, 4.3-inch touchscreen LCD rotary unit with all controls, handle and thumb rest.
