Canon C500 Mark II Rumored to Record 8K Videos Coming at NAB Show 2016
Canon was a bit late for the 4K market. So they don’t want to be late again in the 6K or 8K market. Canon is planning to release a 8K camcorder and looks like it will be the C500 successor.
The EOS C100 Mark II ($4,499 – B&H | Adorama) announced back in 2014, while the EOS 300 Mark II became official in 2015. It makes sense that the Canon will replace the C500 in 2016 with the C500 Mark II model.
The official announcement for C500 Mark II is expected at the NAB Show 2016 in Las Vegas.
