Zacuto’s Steve Weiss and Jens Bogehegn talk to Canon’s Jon Sagud about all the new features of the Canon C300 MkII. The original C300 is still one of the most popular rental cameras out there, and both Steve and Jens think its sucessor will be just as successful.
The EOS C300 Mark II Digital Cinema Camera boasts a wide range of new and improved features, including 4K/2K/Full HD internal and external recording (including 4K RAW output) and a new 10-bit Canon Log 2 Gamma. The camera also features an expanded dynamic range of 15 stops, improved Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus, innovative focus assist engineering and CFast recording technology.
Zacuto also show their own rig and accessory line up for the C300 mkII, including the next gen Recoil and Gratical HD and X EVFs. Zacuto will release the new Next Generation Recoil Rig for the Canon C300 mkII in August 2015.
The camera is expected to start shipping in September for $15999 US.
