Canon USA has announced that they will be holding a livestream, or virtual press conference, on April 20th for their “new professional imaging products and technologies”.
We can assume that Canon will be focusing on their cine and camcorder product lines in the livestream. This will probably be the rumored Canon EOS C300 Mark III camcorder. According to the latest rumors, the next cinema camera will likely be called the “Canon EOS C300 Mark III”.
Besides this new camcorder, the company could announce all the details about the new Canon EOS R5 full frame mirrorless camera, as well as the much-rumoured EOS R6, said to be a more affordable step-down model from the R5. The new Canon EOS R5 camera already listed at Adorama and B&HPhoto.
Below are the rumored specifications of Canon EOS C300 Mark III :
- Most likely will be called C300 Mk III (almost 100% confirmed)
- The same body as the C500 Mk II and accessories
- the same optical axis as the C200 and C700 cameras, so the bridge plates, shoulder mounts, and rod supports are the same
- It sports a 4K super 35 sensor with the capability of recording 4K120 without crop in Cinema RAW Light format
- It also has a “dual ISO” function when recording in XF-AVC
- It has an anamorphic de-squeeze function and false-color built in for monitoring (with the C300 Mk II you had to use an external monitor with these functions)
