Canon Announces the New EOS C300: A New Style of Digital Cine Camera, Serving the Evolving Needs of Today's Cinematographer

By StudentFilmmakers.com
posted Nov 23, 2011, 07:29

More than just a camera, the C300* and C300 PL* cameras mark the beginning of a whole new system for the motion picture industry. Form factor, ergonomics, image processing and lenses - re-imagined to tailor the experience of shooting to the needs of professional cinematography crews.

Canon has a history of bringing professionals the best. Cinema EOS is no exception. With Canon's Super 35 mm CMOS sensor, the DiG!C DV III processor, EF Cinema Zoom and Prime Lenses, and an existing cadre of highly regarded EOS lenses, Cinema EOS will help produce footage that will satisfy even the most critical cinematographer.

The large Super 35mm Canon CMOS Sensor allows very shallow depth of field. Combined with the new Canon EF Cinema Primes, cinematographers can balance beautiful out of focus areas with stunningly sharp details for the exact desired effect, under almost any lighting condition.

The 8.3 megapixel, single CMOS sensor captures full bandwidth, individual RGB channels for each Full HD 1920x1080 frame without the need for debayering algorithms. The single CMOS chip produces color on par with conventional three chip designs.

The Canon CMOS sensor's dynamic range gives up to 12 stops of exposure latitude, capturing more detail in each frame. This range compares to that of far–more expensive cameras.

It goes without saying that a great lens goes a long way to getting a great result. And Canon has a reputation of well-regarded optics. Canon Cinema EOS is compatible with a big family of Canon lenses - over 60 Canon EF and EF-S lenses, the all new Cinema Zoom Lenses (for EF- and PL-mount) and Cinema Prime Lenses (EF mount body only).

The DiG!C DV III processor works hand in hand with the new 8.3 megapixel Super 35 CMOS sensor. DiG!C DV III provides the power to process the information from the large 8.3 megapixel single sensor into four 2.0 megapixel channels (2xG; RGB). This design allows the single chip design of the EOS C300 to maintain high color fidelity, optimal signal-to-noise balance and smooth gradations usually found only on three-chip sensor designs – making it particularly good for green screen VFX and virtual set applications. The CMOS sensor offers stunning low light performance and incredibly clean images, even at ISO settings as high as 20,000.
