General Notes:
1.) The EOS Cine cameras are also available with PL mount. The mounts per se are not interchangeable. Mount conversion service is available for the Canon EOS C300 Mark II though, with the choice of Canon EF, Canon EF with Cinema Lock and PL mount (back and forth). Currently, the conversion service is limited to European Regional Competence Centres in France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and the UK. Alternatively a PL mount kit with shim rings can be ordered for DIY conversion needs (delivery is also possible outside the EU in this case). All existing Canon EF and EF-S lenses (including tele converters) can be used with the EOS Cinema EF mount cameras. To mount PL lenses use an adapter like Triad PL-C300RS, Zunow PL-5D or KCWtechnica PL V1A/V2A.
2.) The EOS C300 and C500 feature a built-in time controller for time-lapse photography (recording a specified number of frames at a specified interval for a specified amount of time).
3.) For third-party cine lenses with Canon EF mount be refered to Video/Cine Gear > Cine Lenses > Other Brands
