MELVILLE, NY, September 5, 2019 – Contrary to popular belief, sometimes a sequel is better than the original. That is the case with the all-new Canon EOS C500 Mark II cinema camera today announced by Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. With its modular design, competitive price point and new features such as a 5.9K Full Frame CMOS sensor, user-changeable lens mounts, electronic image stabilization, internal cinema RAW light recording and the new DIGIC DV 7 Image Processor, the EOS C500 Mark II represents a bold leap forward for Canon’s Cinema EOS system line. The variety of assembly and lensing options help to make this camera ideal for a broad range of applications, from run-and-gun documentary shooting to live television broadcasts and big-budget films.

My bet is this will be the first R mount Cinema EOS cam...that R mount adapter is coming. And yes, the ND's in the cinema line are close enough to the sensor to accommodate the short 20mm R mount flange.

16k for no slow motion or 48fps, you can buy a red that’s better equipped. It should be closer to 10-12k.
Looks better on paper initially* but is pretty horrible to actually use.


*sure some specific things are just about the best you can get.

Why not launch it with RF mount as an option then? Stuck between EF and RF right now, with 5DIV, EOS R, C300II...

Because they dont have a lens lineup to support real Cine production in RF mount right now, and no production studio is going to willingly buy an RF mount version of this when their shop is filled with EF-mount lenses.

I like it. I'll buy it. Keep C200 or sell :unsure: (full frame, 4 to 5.9k, auto-focus when needed, stabilization when needed, excellent color, RAW etc)
