The Canon EOS C500 Mark II 5.9K Full-Frame Camera Body is part of the Cinema EOS lineup of cameras, and it features a full-frame CMOS sensor with an effective 18.69MP resolution. The C500 Mark II comes with a Canon EF mount and features an interchangeable lens mount system, allowing you to swap out the mount in the field for an optional Cinema Locking EF or PL mount, thus greatly expanding the amount of glass you can use with the camera. Internal recording is done to CFexpress cards via two CFexpress card slots. 8-bit proxy recording in the XF-AVC codes, as well as JPEGs, can be captured onto an SD card via the built-in SD card slot. Supporting a variety of gamma settings including Canon Log 2 and Log 3, as well as supporting a variety of color gamuts including Cinema BT.2020, DCI-P3, and legacy BT.709. The sensor is capable of capturing footage in a variety of aspect formats, including DCI-4K, UHD, and Anamorphic Widescreen. In addition to shooting using the sensor's full-frame size, you can use a variety of spherical and anamorphic glass designed for Super 35mm and Super 16mm capture using appropriate sensor crop modes, lens mounts, and adapters. The high-speed DIG! C DV 7 enables the camera to simultaneously record 2K proxy files as XF-AVC 2K 4:2:0 8-bit to an SD card, while you are recording Cinema RAW Light files (5.9K, 4K Crop, or 2K Crop) to the internal CFexpress cards. An optional EF Cine Lock mount also features the Canon EF electronic protocols, and it removes any play when mounting EF lenses to your camera. An industry-standard PL mount is also available, enabling using virtually any PL-mount lens on your C500 Mark II. Two independent image signals can then be detected at each photosite and compared using phase-difference to provide autofocus with compatible lenses. DAF can survey the scene and recognizes not only whether the subject is in focus or not, but in which direction (near or far) and by how much. After setting two separate focus locations on the screen, the camera's set button can be used to alternate between the two focus points. The focus racking effect can be fine-tuned by adjusting AF tracking speed and response.
