The Canon EOS C500 PL Cinema EOS Camcorder Body (PL Lens Mount)represents
Canon's first foray into the world of 4K digital cinema production. Sharing a sensor with the
earlier EOS C300 PL camera, the EOS C500 PL fulfills the potential of the large (Super 35mm-
size), high-resolution (8.8 Mp effective) CMOS imager by offering full 4K RAW output via 3G-

Canon Log Gamma

Canon Super 35mm CMOS Sensor
Modeled on the Super 35mm 3-perf motion picture film standard, the Canon CMOS sensor has
an effective resolution of 4096 x 2160. The image sensor employs an innovative readout
technique that delivers full-bandwidth individual RGB video components without the need for
any de-Bayering algorithms
RAW 4K Output
Using a single 3G-SDI output, the C500 PL is able to output a full 4K RAW (4096 x 2160-pixel)
data stream in 10-bit color space, with full Bayer encoding and frame rates up to 60 fps. Using
both of the camera's 3G-SDI outputs, the frame rate can jump as high as 120 fps, but with the
horizontal resolution reduced by half and then interpolated back in
Canon Log Gamma
Shooting in Canon Log mode, cinematographers can set the camera exposure value using their
customary light meter practices. This nonlinear transfer function is specifically designed to
facilitate the post-production of digital images originating in Cinema EOS in a manner similar to
the post-production of images digitally transferred from motion picture film (the contemporary
DI process). By managing the disposition of quantization bits, Canon Log ensures excellent tonal
reproduction within both highlight and low-light regions of a given digital image
Canon EOS C500 with PL Lens Mount
Designed to integrate into existing production setups, the EOS C500 PL is fully compatible with
a wide variety of industry-standard PL-mount lenses, ensuring it will work seamlessly with
trusted optics already in the filmmaker's possession. Compatibility with Canon's existing PL
mount lenses means filmmakers can take advantage of the new optical designs Canon has
developed for the cinema market

Canon Cinema EOS Lenses, Available in PL Mount
Some Canon Cinema EOS lenses (sold separately) are available in both PL and EF
configurations. They're designed and engineered to meet or exceed the exacting standards of
working professionals. Every Canon Cinema EOS 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. Cinema EOS
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. Cinema EOS 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
Designed with Filmmakers in Mind
With everything a cinematographer needs, the EOS C500 PL comes ready to produce. A logical
layout of buttons and dials make operation simple. A lock switch turns off all controls except the
recording button and function buttons. Small ridges between the buttons help prevent activating
functions by mistake. A backlit display panel is great for low-light viewing. A tally lamp is
clearly visible from the side or behind the camera
Comfortable Ergonomic Controls
The moment you pick up the EOS C500 PL, you'll feel right at home. Four separate start/stop
buttons and 15 other customizable buttons distributed over the camera body mean quiet and
intuitive access
Accommodating File-Based Production
The Cinema EOS system creates full HD proxy files in the internationally standardized Material
eXchange Format (MXF), wrapping video and audio with metadata in a single file that maintains
access to critical information throughout the production process
