Great news for all C300 Mark II both current and future owners - the camera has now been officially certified for EBU Tier 1 HD and Tier 2 4K Classification for professional broadcast work.
The BBC and other leading broadcasters in the UK and Europe often use the EBU classifications when selecting cameras for jobs, and now that the C300 Mark II is officially on the list with the impressive 15 stops dynamic range and a wealth of on-board codecs, owner-operators can rest assured their camera has been officially tested.
Testing our cameras using the European Broadcast Union’s methodology is a very important step for us,” said Austin Freshwater, Director, Professional Imaging at Canon UK. “With the EOS C300 Mark II, we aimed to design a camera that lets both filmmakers and broadcast producers realise their creative vision. It’s because of this commitment that the EOS C300 Mark II offers users the very best image quality and we’re incredibly pleased that these test results back that up.
The EOS C300 Mark II follows Canon’s XC10 video camera that also qualifies for R.118 Tier 1 HD as tested in September last year. Alongside this, the EOS C300 Mark II joins several of Canon’s high-end professional broadcast cameras that meet the criteria defined by the EBU, including its predecessor the Canon EOS C300, the Canon XF305 and the Canon EOS-1D C.
