Fully Compatible with New & Existing EF-mount Lenses
Canon EOS C300 with EF-Lens Mount
To integrate easily into the working style and equipment array of film crews and production houses, the EOS C300 with a Canon EF-lens mount is completely compatible with all of Canon's EF lenses, including compact primes, super telephotos, specialty Tilt-Shift, Macro and Fisheye lenses - over 60 in all.
EF and L-Series Lenses A unique combination of the world's most advanced optical, microelectronic, and precision manufacturing technologies, the Canon's EF lenses, compatible with the EOS C300, are perfected in Canon's laboratories and proven in the field. Whatever the application, whatever the budget, there are Canon EF lenses perfect for nearly every scenario. Their compatibility not only affords the Cinema EOS access to some of the finest optics on the market, it opens up myriad possibilities with Canon's superlative specialty lenses, including a range of Tilt-Shift lenses, Close-up lenses and even Canon's amazing EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye Zoom.
Canon EF Cinema Lenses Canon EF Cinema lenses are designed and engineered to meet or exceed the exacting standards of working professionals. Every Canon EF Cinema 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. EF Cinema 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. EF Cinema 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.
Broad Compatibility with EOS Cameras The versatility of the Canon Cinema EOS approach also makes it compatible with more cinema optics than any other camera system. EF-mount EF Cinema Prime lenses are compatible with Canon EOS DSLRs - including full-frame models like the EOS-1D X and the EOS 5D Mark II as well as cameras like the EOS 7D and EOS 60D and their APS-C sized sensors.
Canon EF Cinema Zoom Lenses Canon's Cinema EF Zoom lenses offer unrivaled optical performance for demanding high-end productions, available in both EF and PL mount configurations. With fluorite, aspherical lens elements and advanced optical design, these unequalled Cinema EF Zoom lenses are capable of 4K-image reproduction. The wide-angle CN-E14.5-60mm T2.6 L S/SP provides industry-leading breadth of range; the telephoto CN-E30-300mm T2.95-3.7 L S/SP rivals best-in-class zoom magnification and telephoto focal length. Together these lenses cover the range most commonly used in cinema shooting.
Canon EF Cinema Prime Lenses The brilliant series of Cinema EF Prime lenses offers spectacular 4K-image quality in lightweight, compact designs. Three models for EF mount cameras - CN-E24mm T1.5 L F, CN-E50mm T1.3 L F, and CN-E85mm T1.3 L F - offer consistent form factors and marking optimized for motion picture production. Whether you shoot with a Canon EOS C300 or EOS DSLR, the compact and consistent lens design makes for excellent handling. Audiences will also love the results from the 11-blade aperture diaphragms, fast t-stops and proven Canon lens elements.
Additional lenses are already under development, reflecting Canon's commitment to offer the broadest range of professional cinema lenses to meet filmmaker's needs, now and in the future.
there is no place to go for training
There are many reviews of the equipment hardware. This is to tell you that there are almost no resources that clearly and simply explain how to use the canon Log function, How to use LUTs. The video scopes or how to set up custom picture settings. I have used the camera on several projects and have gotten good results. That said, I have searched the web for those resources that would allow me to easily understand what Canon has advertised as these functions which unlock the camera's true potential. I don't buy the idea that this should be a required quest for someone making the move up to a professional camera.
