Impressive usability and imaging power combine in the EOS C300 Mark III, the customizable cinema camera that's built for versatility and flexibility. The lightweight body comes equipped with Canon's new Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor capable of over 16 stops of dynamic range.

The DIGIC DV 7 Image Processor expands functionality and flexibility by enabling features such as internal RAW recording, 4K 120p High Frame Rate recording, and Dual Pixel Autofocus. The EOS C300 Mark III is the perfect expression of form and function, exceptionally adaptable to virtually any production with its modular design.

Canon Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor

The EOS C300 Mark III features Canon's next generation Super 35mm Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor. This sensor is capable of dynamic ranges in excess of 16 stops and is compatible with Canon’s exclusive Dual Pixel CMOS Autofocus technology.

The DGO Sensor is a developed imaging system that generates high dynamic range and maintains low noise levels by reading out each photodiode with two different gains. It combines the two with saturation prioritizing gain for bright areas, and a lower noise prioritizing gain for darker areas.

Enhanced Clear Scan Mode

Firmware available Summer 2023 will add improvements to Clear Scan shutter mode to help reduce or virtually eliminate the flickering caused by some LED walls.

DIGIC DV7 Image Processor powerfully processes high-resolution image data

The EOS C300 Mark III features Canon's DIGIC DV7 image processor that takes the extensive RAW information captured from the imaging sensor and processes it for output. DIGIC is also the engine behind features such as high frame rate recording, Dual Gain Output (DGO) Sensor, Dual Pixel Autofocus, Cinema Raw Light Recording, HDR (PQ) output, Electronic Image Stabilization and proxy recording.
