Also new for Canon is their highly versatile CN10x25 Cine Servo Zoom. The new Servo zoom covers Super 35 sensors, however thanks to the built-in extender, when engaged it can also cover full-frame. The 25 to 250mm range is plenty for just about any cinema, documentary or broadcast application and this lens will a perfect match to the C300 Mark III. Also during the virtual event, Canon shared some upcoming firmware updates for camera such as the XF705, which now supports XF-AVC 8bit, and the C200, which will soon have the ability to output a signal simultaneously via HDMI and SDI.
ARRI also announced a new SRH-360 Stabilized Remote Head for huge cinema camera payloads of up to 30kg.
