Overview

RAW RecordingThe Canon C500 RAW recording option will deBayer the RAW data and convert it to a 1920x1080 video signal for viewing on the Odyssey7Q’s OLED panel as well as output over the Odyssey7Q’s SDI and HDMI ports. The Odyssey7Q will also playback recorded Canon C500 RAW files. The Odyssey7Q LUT control allows switching between a Canon C-log and Rec709 image.

The Canon C500 camera can output Canon RAW in 4096x2160 (4K) or 3840x2160 (Quad HD). Frame rates in either mode are up to 60p. Canon RAW is recorded by the Odyssey in the native 10-bit .RMF files and is readable in any post program capable of reading Canon RAW. The C500 can also shoot a “Half RAW” format of 4096x1080, which the Odyssey recorder with the Canon C500 Record Option can capture at 50fps, 60fps, 100fps and 120fps. The Odyssey can also accept 4K/QHD RAW up to 30fps, debayer it and turn it into high quality 4K/UHD Apple ProRes video.

C500 can also output 2K or HD 12-bit RGB 4:4:4 video. The Canon C500 4K RAW record option is not required for this as the Odyssey7Q can record these formats in uncompressed video DPX files. A compressed recording solution will be made added in a future update.
