"Canon really listened to the feedback of the C500 MK I and implemented some pretty cool upgrades to the the C500 MK II. The C500 MK II is a full-frame camera capable of shooting in 6K raw. With dual native ISOs, the C500 MK II can also hold its own in low-light conditions. This camera also features an impressive face-tracking auto-focus -- perfect for small-crew interview work or run-and-gun B-roll. This camera is also capable of shooting in anamorphic so I’d definitely recommend pairing it with any of our Atlas Anamorphic lenses!"
