The Canon C500 Cinema Camera combines the ergonomic design of the C300 with an advanced Super 35mm sensor that sports an expansive range of output options for 4K and 2K shooting. Uncompressed Canon RAW can be delivered to an external recording system (rentable separately) via the dual 3G-SDI ports, which also support external live monitoring. 1080p HD can be recorded internally thanks to dual onboard CF slots (cards not included) while custom picture files, camera settings, and user memo files can be saved on and read from an SD card (card not included). The C500 features a log gamma setting that sets the camera to max dynamic range and provides wide exposure latitudes. The files produced using log format are ideal for post production corrections and grading. The versatility of settings and high number of outputs and connection points provides operators with complete control over functions such a iris, shutter, gain, zoom, audio, and rig arrangements. A pair of Peaking Modes and a Magnify Focus Assist are available in both standby and record mode, making it extremely easy to check and confirm critical focus settings. The Canon C500 is ideal for cinematographers working with corporate clients and on larger production sets, as well as for documentarians and broadcasters.
