8.3MP Super 35mm CMOS sensor; Full HD

An 8.3MP Super 35mm CMOS sensor, designed and manufactured by Canon specifically for video capture, provides 3ch RGB processing for Full HD recording. Canon’s sensor technology delivers superb high-resolution images with high sensitivity, low noise, reduced rolling shutter artefacts and low power consumption, along with typical large sensor benefits such as beautifully shallow depth of field.

Interchangeable lens (EF mount)

The EOS C300’s EF mount brings the optical heritage of Canon’s interchangeable EF lens system to a dedicated video production tool – expanding creative options through a huge range of affordable and unique lenses. 3 electronic built-in ND filters increase shooting versatility.

Compact, modular, lightweight

The EOS C300 is ultra-compact, with a basic recording set up that weighs just 1669g (without lens). Removable grip, handle and multi-angle control panel components ensure maximum manoeuvrability, whilst the robust, splash resistant body features magnesium alloy components for additional rigidity and toughness.

50Mbps MPEG-2 MXF to CF card

Record broadcast-ready MPEG-2 MXF files at 50Mbps (4:2:2) to two CF memory cards – relay and simultaneous recording options are available. Industry-standard outputs include HD-SDI, along with Timecode, Genlock and Synch terminals for multi-camera shoots.

High sensitivity, low noise

The EOS C300 features enhanced sensitivity: low noise images can be captured at up to ISO 20000, allowing use in almost any shooting conditions.

Canon Log Gamma

Extensive image customisation includes built-in Canon Log Gamma, which delivers neutral image quality with wide dynamic range (800%) for maximum freedom in post-production. Adjust more than 90 image variables and store as Custom Picture profiles in-camera or on SD card.

24.00p for movie production

PAL, NTSC, and 24.00p modes are included as standard, offering frame rates from 23.98p to 59.94i. Adjust slow and fast motion in 1fps steps for creative flexibility.

Wi-Fi remote control

Wirelessly control camera settings such as ISO, focus, aperture and ND filters via a notebook, tablet or Smartphone, using a simple browser-based user interface. (Optional wireless adaptor required.)

Seamless workflow integration

Integrating seamlessly with existing workflows, EOS C300 movies are compatible with most widely-used professional NLE software packages.
