Canon C300 Digital Camera

High quality digital cinema / television camera using a full frame sensor.

The Canon C300 is a popular camera for creating images in a "cinematic" style. It's used in documentaries, commercials, drama and some feature film production.

Uses a super 35mm full frame large sensor which allows the Camera Operator or Cinematographer or Director of Photography to achieve a shallow depth of field if so desired. This effect is much harder to achieve using cameras with smaller sensors such as the standard 2/3 inch CCD found in most television cameras.

The Canon C300 can also be used with Prime Lenses to further improve the image quality and control over depth of field . Available in either PL or EF mount. When specified with EF lens mount, the Canon C300 can take any Canon 35mm stills camera lenses which makes it extremely versatile.
