Anyone rocking a Canon EOS C300 Mark II can now benefit from a new lens mount service option. This offers the capability to change the 4K Digital Cinema Camera’s original EF mount to EF Mount with Cinema Lock, or to a PL mount and back again.
You can book in for this service through Canon Regional Competence Centres (RCC). Alternatively, the PL lens mount and shim kit are also available for direct sale.
Canon have also revealed that, from early 2016, a PL mount version of the C300 Mark II will be available to purchase. Up until now the camera has only been available in an EF mount but by January 2016 customers can choose whether to purchase an EF mount or a PL mount version. The upcoming PL mount version of the camera will provide support for all of Canon’s PL mount Cinema lenses and other industry-standard PL lenses, thus allowing for even greater shooting possibilities.
