Canon has announced its latest cinema camera, the EOS C300 Mark III, featuring a Super 35 Dual Gain Output sensor that shoots 4K 120p. Alongside is a versatile new lens: the CINE-SERVO 25-250mm T2.95 Cinema Zoom Lens, in both EF and PL mounts.
The EF mount camera is now available for preorder from B&H Photo for $10,999. The C300 Mark III has a brand new sensor that boasts an impressive dynamic range of more than 16 stops, producing improved HDR recording, more protection for highlights, a lower noise floor, and a wider usable latitude. The DIGIC DV 7 processor shoots Cinema RAW Light in 4K at up to 120 frames per second while retaining Canon’s much-lauded Dual Pixel Autofocus (DPAF).
The C300 also features an interchangeable lens mount, allowing users to switch between Canon EF and PL. Canon claims that this body is both powerful and lightweight, making it ideal for both full studio productions or stripped down for use on a drone.
