Ultimately it is the lens, not the camera body, which gives you the exact look and feel you need to tell your cinematic story. If the camera does come with a lens included, it will most often be an EF 24-105mm f-4L lens. Lenses are available is basic models that only offer a few choices to high-end lenses with many options for a multitude of shooting styles.What accessories does the camera come with?
If accessories are included, the possibilities include:
- Battery charger
- Battery pack
- Power adapter
- DC power cord
- Memory card
- Memory card reader
- Case or bag
Canon cameras record video on Secure Digital (SD) memory cards. SD cards come in a number of formats that determine how much video a card can hold. SDHC card will hold up to 32 GB of video while SDXC cards can hold up to 2 TB of video. When shooting high-definition video, you should use at least a 32 GB memory card, particularly when shooting in 4K video. A 32 GB memory card will give you roughly 70 minutes of shooting time.What kind of sensor does the Canon EOS use?
Canon EOS cinema cameras use a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) sensor. While charge-coupled device (CCD) sensors offer higher quality and less sensitivity to noise in still photography, the moving images in videography make CMOS sensors a better choice for video. The fact that CMOS sensors are less sensitive also makes them more forgiving for digital cinema cameras. In addition, CMOS also consumes significantly less power than CCD. This is particularly important for video use, where cameras are regularly used for long shots using battery power only.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Canon.
