canon color space

I own a canon c300 mark 2. Is there any advantage to post production if I shoot using the larger color spaces like cinema gamut if my videos are only ever going to be viewed on rec 709 monitors? Or should I stick to shooting in rec 709? From what I understand It's only useful if the videos are going to be viewed on screens that can display these color spaces.

Been trying to understand color gamuts as best I can. Read what I can from canon and forums online. If anyone can point me in the direction of good info that'd be much appreciated.

web/dvd is sRGB 2.2 gamma, BT1886, P3/rec. 2020 cinema. UHD bluray rec. 2020. No point in worrying about grading in a wide gamut if your
end product is small gamut. if you try to grade in a large gamut, you'd need a monitor that is calibrated and can display it or you'll create artifacts you can't even see. afaik, there's no advantage to grading in a large gamut and clipping or transforming into a low gamut later. cambridge says you may even create posterization doing this if low bits or not transforming white point correctly.
