Canon EOS C300 Mark III Digital Cinema Camera
Intended to replace the Canon EOS C300 Mark II, but in reality, can sit next to Canon EOS C500 Mark II in a list to consider for a new camera to buy. The EOS C300 Mark III features Canon’s Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor which is a new generation of CMOS Sensors by Canon.
Canon’s Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor can handle 16 steps of Dynamic range and is compatible with Canon’s legendary Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus technology. The way Canon’s Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor works is that it will combine two pictures, one prioritizing saturation for bright areas and the other one prioritizing noise reduction for darker parts of the image which result in the crisp and clean final image.
Besides these, almost all the other features between Canon EOS C300 Mark III and EOS C500 Mark II are the same. To note a few, support for user interchangeable EF, Locking EF (EF-C) and PL mount, support for custom user LUTs, modular design with modules that are interchangeable between both cameras.
Canon EOS R5
It is almost 2 years since the introduction of Canon EOS R series mirrorless cameras and now they have come back strong with the introduction of Canon EOS R5. Canon’s new flagship mirrorless camera is sporting their latest Full-Frame CMOS image sensor in conjunction with their latest DIGIC processor. That is a lot of horsepowers packed into a mirrorless camera, but that’s exactly what EOS R5 needs for all the great stuff it is meant to do. Things like shooting uncropped 8K video internally at 30FPS and 4K at 120 FPS all in 4:2:2 10-bit Canon Log and using the H.265 codec. All the modes completely support Canon’s amazing Dual Pixel CMOS AF which in EOS R5, works hand in hand with their Subject Detection technology which is borrowed from Canon’s top of the line camera, EOS-1D X Mark III. Subject Detection in EOS R5 is capable of tracking Face, Head, and Eye of the subject in people detection mode, and also it can detect the whole body, face, or eyes of the animals like cats, dogs, and birds! These features are both available for shooting video or stills.
Canon EOS R5 is scheduled to be available in the first half of 2020 and the price is still a mystery but the estimation is something around $3,500.
