The Canon EOS C300 comes in two versions, one with a Canon EF mount and the other with a PL mount. The sensor is 4K (3840 x 2160) in resolution, with a unique color pattern that produces a very clean 1920×1080 signal. With a native ISO of 850 the camera produces a clean signal all the way up to 20,000 ISO, giving great low light performance.
The camera has two CF cards slots and records in 50 Mbps 422 8-bit MPEG2 compression. Video can be recorded to either card, or both at the same time for redundant recording. The C300 is a Full HD 1080p camcorder rather than being a 4K device even though its CMOS sensor is actually natively 4K resolution and ihas built in log capability but only provides a single 8-bit 4:2:2 output via a single HD-SDI connector.
The camera also has genlock, timcode, and LANC connections for multi-cam operation and remote control. The EOS C300 offers compatibility with virtually every cinema lens in production today, while its compact and modular design and compatibility with third-party accessories enable it to meet virtually any production need while keeping costs down.
