It's been a few months since we've last seen Canon's first Cinema EOS model, but the Camera Canon Cinema EOS C500 has a look and feel that seems to be only subtly different from the C300.
It is noticeably heavier, likely due to the additional cooling gear on board to accommodate 4K shooting. Both flavors include dual CF card slots, which you'll only be able to use for snapping 1080p video, 4K is fed to an external recorder through the dual 3G-SDI ports, which for obvious reasons you won't find on the C300.
EOS C500 has been designed to focus motion picture. This camera can be used in digital production industries which is good for high resolution. This camera can capture video with sampling rate of 4:4:4. It supports12-bit RGB 2K capture as well.
