ps- a few more cameras should be arriving to a few dealers this week, otherwise, the "boat" is supposed to be arriving at the end of the month.

Currently there is only one in Switzerland, owned by Canon themself (also just arrived last week..). But at least it was nice to play around with it for a while.

There should be a first batch sometime in mid February. But the Canon Switzerland folks did not get a assigned cam quantity for that shipement yet. But hopefully ours will be in this first shipment.
I know there are atleast 25 Swiss orders yet. So some of us will have to wait a bit longer for sure.
But maybe they sent larger quantities then in the past... lets hope so.
Sorry I missed the event....I arrived in Schweiz on Thursday the 2nd

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

Interesting choice: low daily rental but barely any discount on the weekly. Do four day weeks exist in Canada? Here in LA, rental houses are lucky to get a three day week.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

god,

i pray rental houses here in SF don't go that low. Right now card rate on on a f3 is around $450, so i'm assuming the c300 should bill for at least that. Otherwise we are all shooting each other in the foot!

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

Mine came today. Off to brew up some custom profiles. Very impressed by the comprehensive section in the manual on the profile settings.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

Jealous of all of you!!! LOL!

And I don't even own a home that I can take a second mortgage out on!

Good thing I've retired from this whole filmmaking thing.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

On the strength of the comments on this forum I ordered my C300 last week, 2-4 week waiting list, can't wait.

I was going to buy a new motorbike which was around the same price but I thought this would be a more usable toy and may even earn me some money!

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

Can't say I don't feel slightly jealous or that I don't covert your goods but the look of pleasure on your face says it all.

Have fun!

I've got a long wait ahead of me.
