Enjoy an extensive range of high quality creative shooting options with the highly versatile XF-AVC H.264 codec. Shoot stunning 4k video at up to 410Mbps/10-bit for easy integration into existing 4K workflows and easily select the combination of resolution and codec type that best suit your production.
Room to manoeuvre
For maximum freedom in post-production the built-in Canon Log2 captures the maximum range of tones, providing up to 15 stops of Dynamic Range.
Record stunning 4K images internally
Realise your creative vision. Simultaneously record stunning high bit rate 4K/UHD images to dual internal CFast 2.0 memory cards, 2K proxy files to SD card and output 4K RAW to external devices, for an efficient workflow. Utilise the abundant powers of 4K image capture in Full HD recording, with higher quality and significantly cleaner results, thanks to Oversampling HD processing.
Easy auto functions
Pick up and shoot. As well as extensive manual controls the EOS C300 Mark II makes life easy for the independent camera operator thanks to innovative automatic features, which let you concentrate on the action. These include Dual Pixel CMOS AF covering approx. 80% vetically and 80% horrizontally of the image display, Face Detection AF (with compatible lenses) and Auto white balance so you won't miss the shot. Autofocus has been further enhanced with the ability to select the AF speed (with compatible lenses) and AF subject tracking characteristics ensuring that focusing is more natural.
Superb performance in any light
Shoot anywhere and capture low-noise footage in all kinds of challenging shooting scenarios thanks to a wide ISO range up to ISO 102,400 that delivers enhanced sensitivity and unrivalled low light performance. Built-in ND filters provide a possible further 10 stops of exposure control (in expansion mode) in bright light or when a wide aperture is required.
Reduced rolling shutter artefacts
Sensor readout speed is significantly improved, producing even lower rolling shutter distortion so even subjects on the move maintain their correct shape better.
Wide choice of colour gamuts
The EOS C300 Mark II offers a variety of colour gamuts to suit your workflow and final output medium, including BT.2020, Canon Cinema Gamut and DCI-P3.
