Canon C300 Camera Package
The Canon C300 mk I from Lightbulb Rentals features an 8.3MP Super 35mm CMOS sensor, designed and manufactured by Canon specifically for video capture, provides 3ch RGB processing for Full HD recording. Canon’s sensor technology delivers superb high-resolution images with high sensitivity, low noise, reduced rolling shutter artefacts and low power consumption, along with typical large sensor benefits such as beautifully shallow depth of field.
The Canon C300’s EF mount brings the optical heritage of Canon’s interchangeable EF lens system to a dedicated video production tool – expanding creative options through a huge range of affordable and unique lenses. 3 electronic built-in ND filters increase shooting versatility. The Canon C300 is ultra-compact, with a basic recording set up that weighs just 1669g (without lens). Removable grip, handle and multi-angle control panel components ensure maximum manoeuvrability, whilst the robust, splash resistant body features magnesium alloy components for additional rigidity and toughness.
