4K Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II and C500 Mark II Due in April

Canon-C500-Mark-II

Canon is now rumored to deliver the second generation of the Cinema EOS C300 and the C500 for NAB 2015 in early April.

Canon Rumors says that it has confirmed that the C500 Mark II would arrive – most likely alongside a 4K C300 Mark II cinema camera too.

Recall that we saw the Canon Cinema EOS C100 Mark II unveiled back in October 2014. It saw mild, yet important, upgrades from its predecessor.

Pushing the C300 Mark II to 4K is a big step up but still only a logical progression for a $12k+ camera in 2015. No word yet on what improvements the C500 Mark II will see.
