This is an interesting 4K alternative camera to the Canon C300 II in EOS mount, as it has a smaller footprint to the C300 II and is able to record internally to RAW (Cinema RAW Light), 4K UHD/50P MP4, 4K DCI RAW and upto 120fps in full HD without crop onto CFast 2 cards whilst retaining Canon's excellent dual pixel auto focus system.  However, it doesn't record Prores, for which you still require to use the C300 Mk I or Mk II.
