In a nutshell
The long-awaited C300 Mark II is destined to become a broadcast industry legend, and a true 4K workhorse. With a brand new 15 stops dynamic range, 4K CMOS sensor, a newly-developed XF-AVC 4K codec (with bit rates up to 410Mb/s), the new Canon C300 boasts seriously top specs. With the addition of 2K, plus slow motion capture at up to 120fps, the C300 exceeds even the most demanding broadcast professional’s requirements.

In the hands
The Canon EOS C300 Mark II is neat and compact, but rugged too. The modular body can be adapted to suit the needs of each filmmaker, and the most challenging of environments. Operation and handling is simple, with a logical layout of buttons and weighing at 1.4kg, it’s comfortable for handheld operation. There’s also the benefit of a removable handgrip with a control dial and function buttons. With the handgrip removed, the thumb rest allows for totally stripped-down shooting.

Ideal for
Designed with filmmakers in mind, the Canon C300 Mark II offers a broad range of versatile shooting options: at home being used handheld or with a tripod, and in the studio or on location, even with 3D rigs. The Canon EOS C300 Mark II can also accommodate shooting conditions that are challenging for larger cameras. The dials are fitted with O-rings and sealing gaskets around the edges of all access covers, making the camera dust-proof and splash-proof. The die-cast component construction allows heat to dissipate, keeping the camera cool while adding strength and rigidity.

Durable, powerful, and easy to handle, the Canon EOS C300 Mark II is a practical production tool for the most creative of filmmakers and broadcasters.
