Canon unveils C300 Mark III camera, new 8K-capable lens

New camera and lens aimed at the broadcast and film market

Canon has unveiled its latest camera the EOS C300 Mark III, aimed at the broadcast and cinema industry.

It includes a new Super 35mm 4K CMOS DGO (Dual Gain Output) sensor, modular design and the ability to record in multiple formats.

Canon has also launched a new 8K-capabale, 5mm-250mm 10x power zoom CINE-SERVO lens, CN10X25 IAS S, which can extend up to 375mm using its built-in 1.5x optical extender.

According to Canon, the DGO sensor enhances HDR output exceeding 16-stops of dynamic range. The camera has configurable design – similar to that of the EOS C500 Mark II launched last year – and ability to record up to 120fps in 4K Cinema RAW Light or XF-AVC. Canon said the camera is its response to the growing industry demand for high-end content across all genres.

The EOS C300 Mark III can record internally in Canon XF-AVC at 4K DCI and UHD at 4:2:2 10-bit, as well as 2K and Full HD. For non-RAW recording in XF-AVC, professionals can select ALL-I or Long GOP to film with high compression for efficient workflow and longer recording times. When recording 2K or Full HD in Super 35mm, footage boasts the 4K sensor’s full capabilities. This recording is downsampled internally to record the footage at the resolution selected by the user.
