Re: A letter to Canon

Frankly I couldn't imagine shooting a wedding with this thing. We shoot small commercial production mostly, and it's fine fiddling with the camera for a minute or two..but with events...ahhh...you're a better man than I, that's all I can say. Frankly, It's made me a lot more disciplined, although I can't tell you how many times I've forgotten that there is no mic...(not on jobs...just messing about stuff... people yammering away at the camera...)

I still believe canon will come out with a "lower" end version of the c300 that is targeted at event, run and gun etc.

Re: A letter to Canon

The C300 is a wedding videographer's dream come true. I shot a wedding with it 3 days after receiving it and it was a breeze. Makes my life so much easier, and my footage a little better too. But it does nothing to raise prices as people getting married generally don't care what camera you use. They just expect it to look good.

Re: A letter to Canon

We mainly shoot weddings & have one on order. It looks like it will be perfect for us (apart from no AWB:-). We have been shooting with DSLRs for the last 3 years so ergonomically this is a step up for us. I guess if you are coming from a traditional camcorder with auto functions it would be more challenging.

Re: A letter to Canon

You guys are going to love it. And I don't mind too much not having AWB. I shot on EX1s for a couple years and never used AWB. But I always dialed in a kelvin on the fly and it was really easy. Picture profile > click wheel > turn wheel. But on the C300 it's a real pain in the neck, especially if you are on a different WB setting than color temp. Function > wheel to K > other button to enable custom K > wheel to temp.

My biggest desire for the firmware is to make white balancing easier.

Edit: I should note that on the EX1, clicking and turning the wheel were essentially the same motion so as far as I'm concerned there were 2 steps to custom color temp. While the C300 is 3-4 steps involving 2 different buttons and a wheel.
