Canon unveils<br />Cinema EOS System<br />for filmmakers

Canon unveils
Cinema EOS System
for filmmakers

November 2011

Canon has unveiled the Cinema EOS System – a new professional digital cinematography system that spans the lens, digital video camera and DSLR camera product categories.

The Cinema EOS System builds on Canon’s 74-year history of innovation and expertise in the field of optical and imaging technology. It offers compatibility with Canon’s wide range of high-performance EF lenses to provide cinematographers with an unprecedented array of creative possibilities to ensure that no story is left untold.

Canon has already earned accolades in the entertainment industry for the EOS 5D Mark II DSLR camera, launched in 2008, which has been used around the world in the production of blockbuster motion pictures, hit television programmes, documentaries and short films: the Cinema EOS System is the next step in a journey that began with EOS Movie.

“As a leading company in digital imaging, Canon’s debut in the film and TV production industry provides a tremendous opportunity to enter into a thriving market,” said Fujio Mitarai, Chairman and CEO, Canon Inc. “Reflecting upon the achievements that Canon EOS Digital SLRs have had in the industry thus far, we are confident the new Cinema EOS series products will bring that success to a whole new level.”

With the debut of the Cinema EOS System Canon has announced seven new 4K Cinema Lenses that complement the current diverse line-up of interchangeable Canon EF lenses for its EOS SLR cameras.

Canon has also revealed the EOS C300/C300 PL interchangeable-lens Digital Cinema Cameras equipped with a Super 35mm-equivalent CMOS sensor, plus news that a new DSLR camera that features a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor to support the recording of 4K video is currently being developed.

The 4K Cinema Lens range includes two zoom lenses (both in EF and PL mount versions), plus three single focal length lenses.

4K Cinema Lens line-up

Canon’s Cinema EOS System makes its debut with seven new 4K Cinema Lens models: four zoom lenses covering a wide zoom range from 14.5mm to 300mm – two models each for EF and PL lens mounts – and three single focal length EF mount lenses. All seven new lenses deliver exceptional 4K, (4096x2160 pixels), optical performance and offer compatibility with Super 35mm-equivalent sensors. Additionally, the three single focal length lenses can be used with cameras equipped with 35mm full-frame sensors.

EOS C300 & C300 PL Digital Cinema Cameras

Canon has revealed a new Digital Cinema Camera that will be available in two models: the EOS C300 and the EOS C300 PL. The EOS C300 is equipped with an EF lens mount for compatibility with the wide array of lenses in Canon’s current interchangeable EF lens range, whilst the EOS C300 PL offers a PL lens mount for use with industry-standard PL lenses. The cameras feature a Super 35mm-equivalent 8.3 Megapixel (approx.) CMOS sensor that’s ideally suited for digital cinematography.

DSLR camera with 4K Movie function

Canon has also announced it’s developing a next-generation DSLR camera that’s equipped with a 35mm full-frame CMOS sensor and supports the recording of 4K video* (at a frame rate of 24P, with Motion-JPEG compression) for exceptional image quality that allows the creation of innovative and expressive images. Full details of this camera will be revealed on the CPN website when they become available.

(* Cropped to APS-H-equivalent size (dimensions measuring approximately 80% vertically and horizontally of a 35mm full-frame sensor) when recording in 4K.)
