The Canon EOS C300 Mark III introduced a new technology to the Cinema EOS System: a Dual Gain Output (DGO) sensor. This sensor, now also shared with the compact Canon EOS C70, captures exceptional image quality with wider dynamic range and low noise, making it ideal for HDR output. By producing two separate images at different amplifications in real time and then combining them, the DGO technology creates breathtaking, immersive cinematic imagery.
Director of Photography Ben Sherlock, best known for his stunning cinematic documentaries for the likes of the BBC and National Geographic, has been using the Canon EOS C300 Mark III since its release. Here he shares his impressions of the game-changing sensor technology and the impact it has had on his work, thanks to the camera's stunning 16+ stops of dynamic range.
