Canon Unveils New Cinema EOS C300 Camera in Hollywood (Updated)

Canon took the wraps off its first cinema-level camera in Hollywood today: the C300. The new new Cinema EOS C300 body is an unusual looking device, resembling both a cinema camera and a digital SLR.

It’s presumably designed to take on other compact, run-and-gun cinema cameras such as the Red Epic and Arri Alexa. The Canon Cinema EOS C300 was unveiled at Hollywood’s Paramount Studios in a packed room that included Canon executives, journalists, and directors and cinematographers including Martin Scorsese.

According to DVInfo,  the Canon C300 will actually include two bodies: one with an EF lens mount and one with a PL mount. The cameras will use a Super-35mm 4K CMOS sensor and will record 1080p30 to Compact Flash cards with the existing Canon XF 50Mbps, 4:2:2 MPEG2 codec, DVInfo reported.
