Equipped with a 5.9K Full-Frame Sensor and Internal
Cinema RAW Light
The EOS C500 Mark II is equipped with a 5.9K full-frame sensor with a 17:9 aspect ratio—developed specifically for cinema use—that realises a dynamic range of up to 15+ stops1, allowing for greater freedom in creative expression. The newly developed DIGIC DV 7 high-speed image-processing platform allows for high-quality 4K 50p / 60p recording, oversampled from the 5.9K full-frame sensor.
The internal Cinema RAW Light recording feature allows for reduced file sizes while retaining the flexibility of a RAW format. The camera also supports XF-AVC, a video format that efficiently records compressed video data.
In a first for Canon cinema cameras and video camcorders, both Cinema RAW Light and XF-AVC intra record to CFExpress Type B cards, allowing for flexibility without the need to change media. Additionally, the camera supports the HDR standards HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), which is ideal for broadcast and live streaming, and PQ (Perceptual Quantization), which is suitable for movie production and distribution online.
