Canon announces Cinema EOS C500 Mark II camera with 5.9K Cinema RAW Light recording. The new camera builds upon its predecessors with an extensive list of new and improved features and technology.
The EOS C500 Mark II features a 5.9K full-frame sensor with 60p recording 5.9K and 4K (2K recording at 120p) and 15 stops of dynamic range. In addition, the newly introduced DIGIC DV 7 image processor allows for more fluid and efficient recording of 4K and HDR. Cinema Raw Light, first introduced in the popular EOS C200 cinema camera, helps to cut data size to about one-third to one-fifth of a Cinema RAW file, without losing grading flexibility.
The Canon EOS C500 Mark II is scheduled to be avaialble in December 2019 for an estimated retail price of $15,999 at B&H, Adorama. You can find out more information on both products by visiting Canon’s EOS Cinema site.
