Compact Form Factor

The Canon C500 Mk II uses the same sensor as the Canon C700 FF, built into a versatile, modular compact form factor camcorder which is shorter than the C300 Mk II and body weighting just 1.75kg (without battery).  It can be used in a cut-down format to make it suitable for gimbal and drone use or instead can be built up into a fully-featured shoulder-mounted camera complete with full ARRI kit and professional viewfinder.

Choice of Native Lens Mount

It can be supplied with a choice of native PL or EF mount and will record 4K+ images either in 16:9 or anamorphic formats.

The PL mount can read Cooke/i data.

Advanced Dual Pixel Auto Focus Mode (in EF mount only with suitable lenses)

Canon’s Dual Pixel CMOS AF Technology function really has to be seen to be appreciated.  There are many AF modes which can allow the user to totally avoid the feared ‘focus hunt’.

High-speed Continuous AF auto focus, smooth, intuitive touch focus operation as well as an improved focus control that recreates a more natural focus pull. To further fine tune AF performance, the EOS C500 Mark II offers the ability to set the AF tracking speed and response.

Clearly, this requires suitable Canon AF lenses and the most recent EF lenses offer the best auto focus functionality.

Records on-board Cinema RAW Light

It records up to 5.9K images to internal CF Express (same form factor as XQD cards).

15 stops of dynamic range is available when shooting with either the Canon Log2 gamma curve or in Cinema Raw Light, making it ideally suited to capturing HDR video content and the camera is able to record oversampled 4K video internally, which should provide superior results to using a native 4K only sensor.

Users can also capture footage internally using Canon’s own XF-AVC codec. Unlike its big brother the Canon C700, the Canon C500 II can only capture Cinema Raw Light to internal cards and not the full RAW format, though the quality is excellent  This efficient codec also benefits the user to be able to benefit from long record times (up to 50 mins of 25p in 5.9K Cinema Raw Light on single 512GB CFExpress card).   THe C500 Mk II is also compatible with original Canon log, Canon Log 2 or Canon Log 3 if preferred.

All acquisition formats possible including anamorphic and Full Frame

The new Canon-developed full frame sensor used in the C500 II and C700 FF has a native resolution of 5952 x 3140 pixels, providing a 17:9 cinema-friendly aspect ratio, and has an imaging area of 38.1×20.1mm in size, making this both a bit wider and a bit shorter than a standard full frame sensor.  However, this is smart, since it achieves the same image circle size as a full frame DSLR, meaning the C500 II FF is compatible with Canon’s entire line of EF-mount lenses at their standard focal lengths.

The full frame (FF) or windowed open gate or Super-35 modes mean that you have a complete choice of all of the capture formats including S-35 Open Gate 4:3 to create 2:1 ot 2:38:1, 16:9 windowed S-35 or Full Frame 16:9.

LCD and outstanding Viewfinder

The VMI C500 II Kit includes a touch-screen 4.3-inch LCD monitor as standard but VMI are offering the superb OLED Electronic Viewfinder EVF-V704 as standard issue and which totally converts this camera into a totally functional professional shoulder-mount camera.

Fast and Slow Capability

The C500 II will offer up to 60p in 5.9K/60p in Cinema RAW Light S-35 or up to 120p in a S-16 crop.

Built-in ND

In common with the Canon C700 FF, the C500 II offers 10 stops of built-in ND.

Built-in Image Stabilisation

Hard to believe but not only will the Canon C500 II stabilise images with suitable EF lenses but it has a function to perform a small digital zoom and offer digital image stabilisation of non-stabilising lenses including PL mount lenses.

We are also including the ARRI Pro Set to allow standard film accessories to be fitted. The ergonomic grip design for easy handling and operability, making it ideal for single shooter operation.

Up to 4 audio channels

The C500 II incorporates 2 x XLR audio inputs but when used with the Extension 2 module, this increases to 4 x separate XLR audio inputs.  The Extension 2 module also provides genlock, time code, multiple HD-SDI outputs and power outputs too0.  VMI is providing the Extension 2 back as standard with the Canon C500 Mk II.

Choice of Powering Options

Please note that the Canon Expansion II backs also incorporate a V-Lock battery clip and  5 x Hawkwoods V-Lock batteries as part of this package price, though VMI provides C300 III/C500II cameras with 3 x large on-board Canon batteries as standard, in order that the camera can be operated in the most compact form-factor possible for maximum versatility.

12G 4K output

Surprisingly few cameras incorporate a 4K output but the C500 II outputs 4K both via the HDMI output and also via a configurable 12G HD-SDI output, so 4K will not need 4 x separate cables.

Output 12G 4K video from a single SDI Cable.
*** Note that the SDI output mirrors the record standard, so if recording in 4K, then the SDI is also 4K.  HD output only possible if used in conjunction with the Expansion II module***

ACES and LUT Support

Not usually seen in a camera at this level, the Canon C500 II users can customize their own LUTs and load them onto the camera for precise-look monitoring, also, users can apply different LUTs for each output terminal.

A new dedicated LUT button gives additional operational flexibility.

The EOS C500 Mark II supports ACES 1.0 of the Academy Colour Encoding System. Using Canon supplied IDTs, images captured on the EOS C500 Mark II can be imported directly into the ACES compatible systems.

Additionally, video output from the camera can be monitored by selecting the ACES Proxy.


VMI kits are supplied with 3 x 512GB CF Express cards.  This card format can provide a sustained data rate of up to 1700 Mb/s.
