C300 power and wireless

I noticed there is a battery door for the C300 which comes with one Canon BP-955 battery. Does the larger capacity BP-975 battery fits with the door closed?

It looks like the door can be removed for larger capacity batteries according to a video posted by Lan Buii and Drew Gardner last weekend.

Re: C300 power

Anyone knows the average running time with BP-955? Not sure I'd use anything larger on the C300. It seems to be pretty power savy.

I think it's around 3 hours. Just get 2 extra batteries and you're good.

Re: C300 power and wireless

According to Canon, you get about 190 minutes out of a 955, with both the LCD and EVF running. The 975 will give you about 280 minutes. BTW, Canon has an excellent (and candid) FAQ page that answers almost any question you can think of about the camera.... here:

Re: C300 power and wireless

I'm falling more and more in love with this camera the more research I do and I haven't even seen the camera in person or shot anything with it. Considering I already own several 955 and 975 batteries, this is awesome.

I have my first C300 in hand. Perhaps we should arrange a meet-up...

Re: C300 power and wireless

Btw, is the wireless adapter included with the C300 or is that optional? A WFT attachment is listed in the included accessories but I am not sure what this is.

Congrats to all new C300 owners!

Thierry.

Re: C300 power and wireless

There is a WFT port/plug on the camera

The WFT device is not included (at least with serial # 027!)

The forthcoming WFT-E6B wireless file transmitter will be a future option (I think it's the same unit the will be used on the forthcoming EOS 1D X camera)

Nope, the WLAN-Modul WFT-E6B is not included with the cam.
There's also no official delivery date yet. Acordingly to some Canon CPS people they heard there are some kind of problems with the integrated "webserver" holding it back a bit.

But they also said it might be ready for the 1 DX launch.
They also could not tell me a retail price yet.
