Re: CAUTION: 3rd party lenses

I talked with Canon Cinema EOS tech support today about a fix for the lens hot swap issue. The rep I spoke with said there is no fix. Hot swapping lenses on the C300 may or may not damage the camera (a matter of luck?). Warranty coverage of damage due to hot swapping is handled on a case by case basis. The instruction manual states that the camera should be switched off when removing or attaching lenses (page 33).

Re: CAUTION: 3rd party lenses

How about hot-swapping the C100? Anyone heard?

Re: CAUTION: 3rd party lenses

The C100 manual also states that the camera should be switched off. Whether Canon have improved way the fuses blow we won't know unless cameras start dying due to hot sapping lenses. I'm not going to risk it on mine that's for sure.
