Canon has officially announced the EOS C300 Mark III camcorder (replacement for the current Mark II version) and a new CN25-250mm lens (EF mount / PL mount).
The EOS C300 Mark III is the latest Super 35mm cinema camera with a new Dual Gain Output (DGO) sensor and a modular design based on the same frame as Canon’s C500 Mark II. The US price for Cinema EOS C300 Mark III body is $10,999, now available for pre-order at B&H Photo Video/Adorama. The US price for CINE-SERVO 25-250mm T2.95 Cinema Zoom Lens is $29,999, now available for pre-order at B&H Photo Video/Adorama.
The sensor of EOS C300 Mark III is capable of recording 4K DCI/UHD video at up to 120fps, as well as 2K at up to 180fps with 4:2:2 10-bit XF-AVC recording. Canon has also included Canon Log 2 and Log 3 support, 12G-SDI output over a single BNC cable, timecode I/O, genlock input BNCs as well as User LUT support for applying custom LUTS in-camera and two CFexpress card slots.
Without the included grip, the modular frame measures in at 183mm (7.2”) for both width and height and 149mm (5.9”) deep with a weight of roughly 1750g (3.9lbs). Canon has also added anamorphic desqueeze support for 2x and 1.3x lenses, as well as a user-swappable lens mount accessory that makes it easy to swap out lens mounts without the need to take it to a service center (it comes with an EF mount, but can also use EF cinema lock and PL mount lenses with the optional kits).
