The Canon EOS C300 Mark ll Revisited: Still a 5 Star Camera
The C300 Mark II is the new and improved version of the C300 Cinema EOS camera series. This iteration introduced 4K recording, Canon Log 3, and slow motion to the mix, all of which help ease it into the new generation of super 35mm cameras coming out. These features packed in the familiar form factor of the extremely popular C300 make it a no-brainer when looking to upgrade your shoot’s overall image quality.
As with the previous version of C300 you are able to record 1080p up to 60 frames in normal recording mode. And now, you are able to set the camera into S&Q mode to allow for 120fps recording in a cropped mode. This camera can also shoot in 4K up to 30fps internally, enabling more options in post-production and future proofing for your footage.
The new Canon Log 3 takes the best parts of the previous Canon Logs and combines them into one pleasing log form. Many people still decide to shoot in Canon Log 2 in order to squeeze a bit more dynamic range out of the camera’s sensor.
All models of the C300 Mark II include the Dual Pixel AF sensor inside of the body. This new autofocus feature allows for extremely fast and accurate tracking of subjects which makes it a perfect camera for putting on a gimbal such as the MōVl Pro or the MōVl M15. This also makes it a preferable option for run-and-gun shooting while on a shoulder rig.
