5.9K Full Frame CMOS Sensor, with support for Super 35mm and Super 16mm crop modes

The Canon EOS C500 Mark II Cinema Camera features Canon’s high-resolution 5.9K (38.1 x 20.1mm) Full Frame CMOS sensor, which offers exceptional low noise and a broad range of tonality with over 15 stops of dynamic range. The sensor’s expansive native Cinema Gamut goes beyond that of current standards, including ITU-R BT.2020 and DCI-P3, helping the EOS C500 Mark II achieve more natural skin tones and allowing for greater freedom in color grading in both SDR and HDR productions.

The Full Frame sensor is capable of capturing footage in a wide variety of aspect formats, including DCI-4K, UHD and Anamorphic Widescreen. The Cinema EOS C500 sensor supports both anamorphic and spherical lenses. In addition to full-frame, the sensor can also be paired with conventional Super 35mm and Super 16mm lenses using appropriate sensor crop modes, lens mount and adapter.

User Changeable Lens Mounts which gives users freedom to use the lenses they desire

User interchangeable lens mounts and an available B4 mount adapter gives operators the freedom to make bold creative choices based on the subject matter.

The Canon EOS C500 Mark II Cinema Camera ships with an EF Mount that can be user swapped to an optional Locking EF (EF-C) or PL mount. Each mount swaps easily by simply removing four M3 hex screws. A shim set is provided with each mount kit in order to adjust back focus for the precision in focusing accuracy that professionals rely on.

Newly developed DIGIC DV 7 Image Processor, which powerfully processes high-resolution image data

The Canon EOS C500 Mark II Cinema Camera uses a newly developed DiG!C DV 7 Image Processor that takes the extensive RAW information captured from the 5.9K imaging sensor and processes it for output. DiG!C is also the engine behind features such as high frame rate recording, Dual Pixel Auto Focus, Canon Raw Light Recording, HDR(PQ and HLG) output, electronic image stabilization, proxy recording and oversampling 5.9K processing

Canon Cinema RAW Light and XF-AVC Recording

Thanks to the powerful DIGIC DV 7 image processing platform, the EOS C500 Mark II can record Cinema RAW Light directly to onboard CFexpress cards, which keeps the data-rich signal captured by the 5.9K full-frame sensor intact. Cinema RAW Light offers plenty of freedom for grading in file sizes that are about 1/3 to 1/5 the size of Cinema RAW, offering a great combination in terms of codec efficiency and quality.

When recording in 5.9K Cinema RAW Light, 60 fps is available, which is an ideal range of high-quality slow-motion capture for typical human movements. In 2K (Crop) mode frame rates up to 120fps are available allowing users to slow down the action even further, for more dramatic scenes and special effects. Two new buttons S&F(Slow and Fast Motion) and S&F FPS (Slow and Fast Motion – Frames per Second) have been added to give quick access to desired speed settings, making it simple to utilize this creative tool quickly and spontaneously when the moment is right.

Proxy Recording

Higher resolution, greater bit depths and faster frame rates provide versatility and greater image quality but come at the cost of much larger file sizes. Proxy files can greatly speed up the editorial process by providing lower bandwidth alternative for the initial file sharing and edits.

Canon’s powerful, high-speed DIGIC DV 7 image processor makes it possible for the EOS C500 Mark II to simultaneously record 2K Proxy files. Cinema RAW Light (5.9K, 4K Crop, or 2K (Crop)) can be recorded to the internal CFexpress card while an XF-AVC 2K 4:2:0 8-bit Proxy can be recorded directly to an internal SD card.

Compatibility with EF and PL Lenses

With optional mount kits, users can swap from EF to Locking EF-C or PL mounts on their own. PL lenses are a cinema legacy. With a wide breath of options available to cinematographers choosing a lens is an important part of the creative process. The EOS C500 Mark II’s interchangeability now makes it possible to take any PL lens and pair it with Canon’s state-of-the-art sensor to meet the needs of any project.

Using Canon’s EF still lenses offer remarkable new possibilities for cinematographers including the use of specialty lenses like the fisheye zoom, tilt-shift and super-telephotos.

The amount of viable lens options can be further increased through an optional B4 lens mount adapter. This adapter is available for the PL or EF mount allowing 2/3” lensing options to be used with the camera.

Electronic Image Stabilization

The EOS C500 Mark II is the first Canon Cinema EOS camera to feature built-in five-axis electronic IS that works with almost any lens including anamorphic.

Modular Design with three available Expansion Units to give a high level of connectivity and interoperability

A new modular design allows productions to optimize and customize the EOS C500 Mark II to specific shooting needs. Accessories and expansion units can be easily attached to provide different levels of functionality. The camera is equally at home fully rigged with a large zoom lens, FIZ unit, audio accessories and rangefinder as it is stripped down flying on a drone

4 Channel Audio Recording

With Expansion Unit EU-V2, the EOS C500 Mark II supports up to 4-channel audio recording. Audio input from the camera’s internal microphone, mini mic port, and XLR ports can be assigned to the 4 different audio channels. This flexibility allows a wide range of audio devices to be connected and mixed directly on the camera
