The original EOS C300 digital cine camcorder made its formal debut in November 2011. It surprised many with its novel ergonomic design – which had been carefully optimized for handheld shooting. While many expressed preference for a more conventional mechanical form factor, the C300 did indeed prove to be particularly popular among the world’s documentary cinematographers whose work generally does entail a great deal of handheld shooting. From the extraordinary diversity of productions done with a large body of C300 camcorders around the globe for the ensuing four years a great deal of commentary and suggestions based upon those shooting experiences were gathered. The new EOS C300 Mark II embodies many of these suggestions while also incorporating innovative enhancements to both imaging and recording capabilities. On-set systemization has been greatly enhanced by a coordinated design with a new on-set 4K reference display.
