Impressive usability and imaging power combine in the EOS C500 Mark II, the customizable full frame cinema camera that’s built for creative freedom.

The lightweight body comes equipped with Canon's 5.9K full-frame CMOS sensor capable of over 15 stops of dynamic range. 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 the perfect expression of form and function, exceptionally adaptable to virtually any production with its modular design. Three expansion units and user changeable lens mounts enable operators to build their ideal cinema system. 

The Cinema EOS C500 Mark II features Canon’s high-resolution 5.9K (38.1 x 20.1mm) Full Frame CMOS sensor, which offers exceptional low noise and a broad range of tonality with over 15 stops of dynamic range. The sensor’s expansive native cinema gamut goes beyond that of current standards, including ITU-R BT.2020 and DCI-P3, helping the EOS C500 Mark II achieve more natural skin tones and allowing for greater freedom in color grading in both SDR and HDR productions.

The Full Frame sensor is capable of capturing footage in a wide variety of aspect formats, including DCI-4K, UHD and Anamorphic Widescreen. The Cinema EOS C500 sensor supports both anamorphic and spherical lenses. In addition to full-frame, the sensor can also be paired with conventional Super 35mm and Super 16mm lenses using appropriate sensor crop modes, lens mount and adapter.

The EOS C500 Mark II uses a newly developed DIGIC DV 7 Image Processor that takes the extensive RAW information captured from the 5.9K imaging sensor and processes it for output. DiG!C is also the engine behind features such as high frame rate recording, Dual Pixel Auto Focus, Cinema Raw Light Recording, HDR(PQ and HLG) output, electronic image stabilization, proxy recording and oversampling 5.9K processing.

Thanks to the powerful DIGIC DV 7 image processing platform, the EOS C500 Mark II can record Cinema RAW Light directly to onboard CFexpress cards, which keeps the data-rich signal captured by the 5.9K full-frame sensor intact. Cinema RAW Light offers plenty of freedom for grading in file sizes that are about 1/3 to 1/5 the size of Cinema RAW, offering a great combination in terms of codec efficiency and quality.
