 Versatility, Reliability and Durability
 

Designed from the ground up to maximize shooting comfort and usability, the EOS C500's modular design enables different components to be added or removed as required to meet the needs of a particular shooting scenario, and also to increase the comfort of a camera operator. In addition to the core camera body, the EOS C500 features a low-angle, camera-handle extension plus a removable LCD Monitor and control panel with XLR audio inputs. (However, to accommodate the EOS C500's 3G SDI outputs, the handgrip is fixed in a single position and not removable.)

The EOS C500 features an Ultra-High Resolution 1.55 Megapixel EVF with approximately 100% field-of-view coverage for comfortable viewing and accurate image composition, focus and color adjustment. The viewfinder's angle is adjustable for additional user comfort. The Camera Control Unit features a 4-inch, 1.23 Megapixel rotating LCD screen that offers approximately 100% field-of-view coverage. Mounted onto the camera control pad, the display panel can be freely rotated to provide the operator with flexible viewing angles and convenient access to the control panel. For added flexibility, the panel can also be mounted in different positions to accommodate different viewing positions required by the operator, director or producer. Such flexibility and ease of movement makes the display easier to use than a rigid design that can be easily bumped during a shoot.

 

Full Manual Control

The EOS C500 incorporates a number of built-in features that camera cinematographers and camera operators need to ensure accurate exposure and color levels during production.

• A versatile waveform monitor provides detailed analyses of both overall image brightness and RGB Components.

• To check color balance and view the effects of white-balance adjustments, an on-board vectorscope displays real-time image hue and saturation analysis.

The EOS 500 offers full manual control of all functions, including iris, shutter speed, gain, zoom, focus and audio levels, thereby allowing the camera operators to adapt to both technical and artistic challenges during the shooting. For maximum customization, you have access to Custom Picture Settings, Custom Functions and Custom Display Options to tailor the EOS C500 precisely to your specific needs.

For situations in which conditions require critical focusing, the EOS C500 offers several focus aids. A pair of Peaking Modes and a Magnify Focus Assist are available in both standby and record mode, making it extremely easy to check and confirm critical focus settings. An Edge Monitor Focus Assist system, which was first introduced with the Canon XF Series camcorders, shows overall focus of the image plus focus status of focus-check boxes.

 

Slow and Fast Motion

 

 

During internal CF recording mode, the EOS C500 provides a Slow and Fast Motion Mode that can be used to record at a different frame rate than the playback frame rate, thereby resulting in either a fast or slow motion effect. Because the EOS C500 is recording real frames, and simply modifying the data playback rate, there is no overall quality loss due to interpolation; maximum image quality is maintained. In HD 1080 mode, fast motion is supported at up to 30-times normal rate and as slow as 1/1.25 sec.; in HD 720 mode, fast motion is supported up to 60-times the normal rate, and as slow as 1/2.5 seconds. In 4K/2K output modes the camera provides variable frame rate control that can be output to external recorders.

 

 

The EOS C500 incorporates an interval recording function. With this feature set, users can program the camera to record a specified number of frames at specified intervals for time-lapse capture.

WFT-E6 Wi-Fi® unit with Remote Capabilities
 

The EOS C500 can be used with the optional WFT-E6A Wi-Fi transmitter to provide unique capabilities not found in competitive units. Using any web-enabled devices such as a laptop PC, smartphone or tablet, you can control and adjust a number of the EOS C500's operational functions, including camera start and stop plus shooting parameters, in addition to monitoring a remote video feed and inputting session metadata. A built-in Bluetooth sensor will communicate automatically with external GPS units to secure location data that can be embedded with your video footage.

CANON C500

The Canon EOS C500 4K Cinema Camera (PL Lens Mount) represents Canon's first foray into the world of 4K digital cinema production. Sharing a sensor with the earlier EOS C300 PL camera, the EOS C500 PL fulfills the potential of the large (Super 35mm-size), high-resolution (8.8 Mp effective) CMOS imager by offering full 4K RAW output via 3G-SDI.

The C500 PL also has a body type in common with the C300 PL. Featuring large, accessible buttons with ridges dividing them, the EOS C500 PL has been designed expressly for the craft of digital cinema. Its signal output is similarly appropriate: At rates up to 60 frames per second, the 10-bit 4K RAW data stream output can be recorded to an approved external device (sold separately) at full resolution. Using a format called 4K half RAW, which halves the horizontal resolution, you can capture up to 120 fps to the external recorder by using both of the C500 PL's 3G-SDI outputs.

The Canon EOS C500 PL integrates with time-tested feature film production workflows. As 4K RAW data is being recorded externally, you can record proxy files at 50 Mb/s to the camera's internal CF card so rough-cut or dailies editing can begin immediately after a scene is complete. For the widest latitude for color correction in post-production, the camera offers Canon's Log gamma mode, which results in excellent tonal reproduction in the highlight and lowlight regions of an image, and a greatly expanded dynamic range.

As its name suggests, the EOS C500 PL features a PL mount for compatibility not only with a broad range of compatible cine lenses from manufacturers like Angenieux and Zeiss, but also with Canon's burgeoning line of Cinema EOS lenses for PL mount. These lenses are designed to match up perfectly with the 3-perf Super 35mm-size CMOS sensor of this camera. Like the camcorder, these lenses (sold separately) were developed specifically for digital cinema, with engraved markings on angled surfaces in meters and feet and uniform front diameters for easy lens switching without having to reconfigure a matte box or follow focus gearing.

 

Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor

Modeled on the Super 35mm 3-perf motion picture film standard, the Canon CMOS sensor has an effective resolution of 4096 x 2160. The image sensor employs an innovative readout technique that delivers full-bandwidth individual RGB video components without the need for any de-Bayering algorithms

 

RAW 4K Output

Using a single 3G-SDI output, the C500 PL is able to output a full 4K RAW (4096 x 2160-pixel) data stream in 10-bit color space, with full Bayer encoding and frame rates up to 60 fps. Using both of the camera's 3G-SDI outputs, the frame rate can jump as high as 120 fps, but with the horizontal resolution reduced by half and then interpolated back in

 

Canon Log Gamma

Shooting in Canon Log mode, cinematographers can set the camera exposure value using their customary light meter practices. This nonlinear transfer function is specifically designed to facilitate the post-production of digital images originating in Cinema EOS in a manner similar to the post-production of images digitally transferred from motion picture film (the contemporary DI process). By managing the disposition of quantization bits, Canon Log ensures excellent tonal reproduction within both highlight and low-light regions of a given digital image

 

Canon EOS C500 with PL Lens Mount

Designed to integrate into existing production setups, the EOS C500 PL is fully compatible with a wide variety of industry-standard PL-mount lenses, ensuring it will work seamlessly with trusted optics already in the filmmaker's possession. Compatibility with Canon's existing PL mount lenses means filmmakers can take advantage of the new optical designs Canon has developed for the cinema market

 

Canon Cinema EOS Lenses, Available in PL Mount

Some Canon Cinema EOS lenses (sold separately) are available in both PL and EF configurations. They're designed and engineered to meet or exceed the exacting standards of working professionals. Every Canon Cinema EOS lens is designed to fulfill contemporary 4K production standards, surpassing the performance requirements of any HD imaging system. Zoom lenses feature large aspherical lens elements to achieve sharp, consistent images in every shooting situation. Geared inner focusing minimizes focus-induced changes in the angle of view, rendering focus breathing virtually zero. The 11-blade aperture diaphragms ensure smooth out-of-focus areas and beautiful bokeh – and innovative glass construction counteracts barrel expansion and contraction to avoid temperature-induced marking discrepancies. Cinema EOS lenses provide markings on angled surfaces on both sides of the barrel, making it easy to read focus and aperture settings from behind or either side of the camera. Focus markings can be switched from standard labeling to metric. Control rings are designed to maintain the proper amount of resistance with consistent operating torque. Cinema EOS lenses share uniform gear position, diameter and rotation angle as well as front lens diameters, enabling the film crew to quickly change to another Canon zoom or prime lens or compatible third-party accessories like matte boxes and rods without adjustments

 

Designed with Filmmakers in Mind

With everything a cinematographer needs, the EOS C500 PL comes ready to produce. A logical layout of buttons and dials make operation simple. A lock switch turns off all controls except the recording button and function buttons. Small ridges between the buttons help prevent activating functions by mistake. A backlit display panel is great for low-light viewing. A tally lamp is clearly visible from the side or behind the camera

 

Comfortable Ergonomic Controls

The moment you pick up the EOS C500 PL, you'll feel right at home. Four separate start/stop buttons and 15 other customizable buttons distributed over the camera body mean quiet and intuitive access

 

Accommodating File-Based Production

The Cinema EOS system creates full HD proxy files in the internationally standardized Material eXchange Format (MXF), wrapping video and audio with metadata in a single file that maintains access to critical information throughout the production process
