Canon EOS C300 Mark III (and other stuff) To Be Announced Ahead Of NAB 2019?

Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark III

Canon might announced two new Cinema EOS cameras ahead of NAB Show 2019.

One of these new Cinema camera will most likely be the replacement for the Canon EOS C300 Mark II (we reported back in November 2018), while the other camera is rumored to be a high frame camera.

It’s also suggested that the Canon EOS C300 Mark III will might have sensor upgrade option for 8K video. This will most likely be a paid upgrade, apparently to keep the initial price competitive (we reported). 4.4.4 codec and electronic image stabilisation will likely be on board.

Along with these cameras Canon might also announce a CN-E 100mm cinema prime lens

A rumor which reports exactly what we reported back in November 2018 emerged from the web.

It’s suggested that Canon will release the EOS C300 Mark III in late 2019. The initial release will feature 4K video. A paid upgrade to 8K will be made available later, apparently to keep the initial price competitive. The EOS C300 Mark III will have a 4.4.4 codec and electronic image stabilisation.
