The Canon EOS C500 Mark II - EF Mount combines impressive usability and imaging power in a customizable, full frame cinema camera designed for creative freedom. The lightweight camera body is equipped with Canon's 5.9K full-frame CMOS sensor, capable of over 15 stops of dynamic range and a color gamut that exceeds ITU-R BT.2020 to deliver outstanding imagery.

The 38.1mm x 20.1mm sensor captures footage in a variety of shooting modes, including Super 35mm and Super 16mm, with exceptional low-noise performance. 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.

The Cinema EOS C500 Mark II is extremely adaptable to virtually any type of production, thanks to its modular design. Three expansion units and user-changeable lens mounts (choose from EF, Locking EF (EF-C), and PL Mounts) enable operators to build their ideal cinema system.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This version of the camera features a standard EF Mount.
