A bit more about the Canon C300MkII:
The Canon C300MkII has been approved by the Academy (AMPAS) and is ACES compatible (https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/explore/product-showcases/cameras-and-lenses/aces-compatibility-software), as well as NETFLIX approved (https://partnerhelp.netflixstudios.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000579527-Cameras-and-Image-Capture).
Besides being the number one camera system for high-end documentaries, like the 2019 Oscar-winner ‘Free Solo’, the C300MkII is perhaps the only camera that cinematographers and large productions are comfortable to pair with the Arri Alexa system since both camera systems can offer a similar colour space within the Cineon Log Curve, therefore, guaranteeing a visual continuity, especially on skin tones.
The C300MkII has being used on the following films along with the Arri Alexa:
– ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’
It has also been used as the main camera system on many Netflix and Amazon series, as well as features such as “Blue Is the Warmest Color” directed by Abdellatif Kechiche and shot by Sofian El Fani.
A good example of the camera capabilities is the fact that its secondary chip, used to record proxy files, was the primary chip on the original C300, which was the camera used on the single-take film “Victoria”, directed by Sebastian Schipper and shot by Sturla Brandth Grøvlen.
ACES is an industry-standard colour management and digital file interchange system developed under the auspices of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and includes a number of SMPTE standards. The goal of ACES is to create a standardized process to manage colour and file data across any workflow and throughout the lifecycle of a production, from production to archive.
There are a number of benefits of using ACES including:
Video captured using different cameras and settings can be aligned with the ACES colour space, which offers a wide colour range and high dynamic range.
Colour can be managed to allow users to confirm images with the same appearance even when using display devices with varying colour characteristics, in different stages of production/post-production, even in different parts of the world.
A ‘future-proof’ archive ready file format is created that can easily produce current and future deliverables.
In response to strong demand from professionals working in the fields of motion picture, commercial and television production, Canon has integrated ACES features into a number of current products so they can reliably be used in ACES colour-managed workflows. These products have been reviewed by the Academy and recognized as good quality implementations of ACES, earning the ACES logo designation.
