EOS C500 Mark II

New generation Cinema EOS System with 5.9K Full Frame sensor in a compact body, delivers breathtaking image quality with Canon colour science. Newly developed technologies ensure great flexibility and reliability for all cinematographers.

Breathtaking Full Frame Image Quality

Canon’s own developed 5.9K full-frame CMOS sensor delivers an immersive cinematic look combined with natural, smooth skin-tones and faithful colour reproduction with Canon colour science.

The sensor also provides 15+ stop latitude with a wide colour space, perfect for High Dynamic Range productions.

Internal recording of Cinema RAW Light and XF-AVC to CFexpress cards

The EOS C500 MARK II features a newly developed DIGIC DV 7 image processor which enables Cinema RAW Light recording internally at 5.9K, as well as supporting recording of Canon’s XF-AVC format in 4K 4:2:2 10-bit. Simultaneous recording of the same file format is possible to the dual CFexpress card slots, with an additional SD card slot for proxy files.

This multi-recording format provides efficiency and fulfils production requirements.

Compact and robust body

1,750g lightweight body enables it to be comfortably rigged with gimbals, hand-held rigs, making it ideal for various shooting conditions.

Modular system

The EOS C500 MARK II provides support for optional interchangeable lens mounts for different project requirements. EF lens mount provides perfect compatibility with a huge range of Canon EF lenses including EF Cine Primes, while the optional PL mount supports the Cooke /i system. Additionally, B4 mount adapters are also available (for EF or PL mounts) to use with B4 lenses.

Optional Extension Units offer a flexible modular design and configuration capability to cater for a variety of production requirements. Extension Unit 1 offers multi-camera support with a Genlock interface, while Extension Unit 2 adds further interfaces, such as two more XLR inputs, ideal for broadcast applications and a V-Lock battery mount for extended recording times. The optional EVF Unit is ideal for hand-held use but also answers user’s demands to make it easily removable for gimbal applications.

Pioneering Auto focus technology

The EOS C500 MARK II features Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology which offers high-speed Continuous AF. Users also benefit from smooth, intuitive touch focus operation with the new 4.3-inch LCD monitor LM-V2, as well as an improved focus control that recreates a more natural focus pull. To further fine-tune AF performance, the EOS C500 MARK II offers the ability to set the AF tracking speed and response.

Additional Features

  • EOS C500 MARK II is the first Cinema EOS camera to incorporate Electronic Image Stabilization (IS) into the camera body, supporting 5-axis camera shake correction. Even when used with lenses with no electronic lens communication, Electronic IS is possible by manually inputting the focal length.
  • EOS C500 MARK II supports User LUTs. Users can customize their own LUTs and load them onto the camera for precise-look monitoring, also, users can apply different LUTs for each output terminal.
  • Equipped with a robust built-in electronically controlled Full Frame ND filter system, EOS C500 MARK II supports 2/4/6 and an extended 8/10 stops of light filtration, making it possible to create an image with a shallow depth of field, even in the daytime.
