Cameras are starting to arrive

A FEW cameras are starting to arrive at some dealers....from what I'm understanding, more will come mid-month and even more will show up by the end of the month.....

Damn, I was hoping to say that first!

Congratulations Colin. Throw us a bone or two when you get time.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

Hoping to get it out on some shoots next week. Will let everyone know my thoughts. So far I've loved it. It sits super nice in my hands with the 17-50 2.8, the 24-70, abd pretty much all the primes. The 70-200 is a little much, but not too bad for quick shots

My only wish is that I could set the different dials to different functions. There are 2 and the are locked to be mapped to the same function, so they are either iris or ISO. I'd LOVE it if one could be iris and another ISO, but, it's not really that big of a deal.

Yeah, congratulations Colin I'm green with envy!

What type of work are you planning to do with the camera?

Did you mean the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 USM IS lens? I'm really interested to find out whether the EF-S lenses do display visual vignetting.

I wonder if the dial function issue could be resolved with firmware update as it seems logical to want to have concurrent ISO and Iris control?

I am also very interested to know about the vignetting on the 17-55. That would be a disappointment. Although that's the only disappointment I can think of with this camera so far.

Is anyone else super excited about being able to mount the LCD/XLRs off camera? This is huge as far as I am concerned. I want to mount it camera left on my shoulder rig so I can have the LCD right in front of me and audio controls at my fingertips.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

as for the 17-55, there is a very small amount of darkening in the corners (not too bad though, i like it), but the peripheral illumination correction fixes it. I haven't tested my tokina 11-16 yet, im curious about that one.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

Thanks of that info Colin.

That's quite reassuring as to date no one else has made any reference to this lens working well.

Be great to here whether the Tokina works as well - And whether peripheral illumination will work with a third party lens or just canon lenses.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

C300's are shipping in small quantities. Hopefully the numbers will increase in February.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

At a official Canon Switzerland event on thuesday i've been told the first production is 1000 c300's for world wide delivery.
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.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

I spoke to my dealer (in CA) yesterday and he said they were told initially to expect about 3 cameras each week, but that that has since changed. I guess we're number 3 on the list now...so hopefully another week or two.

Re: Cameras are starting to arrive

Yea, I'm surprised at the release rate. I'm #2 with my dealer and they've received only one unit. : (
