By on 3:25 am

Canon has just announced the return of the EOS C500 Cinema Camera with the new C500 Mark II. The biggest feature of this new cinema camera is that Canon has added a 5.9k full-frame sensor capable of over 15 stops of dynamic range to bridge the gap for documentary and feature filmmakers.

The newly developed DIGIC DV 7 Image Processor expands functionality and flexibility by enabling features such as 5.9k recording, internal recording of Canon Cinema Raw Light, and Dual Pixel Autofocus with support for Touch AF and Face Detection AF. Three expansion units and compatibility with EF and PL* lenses with user changeable lens mounts enable operators to build their ideal cinema system. The new system also includes anamorphic lens support and electronic image stabilization, making it a great option for filmmakers who want flexibility and portability.
