Re: Canon EOS C100

Let's hope Zacuto will soon release a Z Finder for the C100, I cannot image using the EVF for focusing, only framing in an emergency. It has me waiverng about reccomending canceling our team's orders.

Re: Canon EOS C100

I do share Andy Wilkinson's opinion about 1080/p50/p60. There are no disadvantages to using it, yet plenty of benefits.

Re: Canon EOS C100

The point is that it's clearly reasonably straightforward to develop a large aperture zoom lens for a small sensor (even then they are not constant aperture). The lens on a 1/3" sensor Canon XF305 is 18X (29.3 - 527.4mm 35mm equivalent) F/1.6-F/2.8. We are never going to see even an 18X APS-C lens with an aperture of F/1.6-F/2.8 let alone a full frame one.

I agree that there is no disadvantage to it but its absence isn't a deal breaker for me. I must admit that I hadn't immediately spotted the absence of even 1280x720 50p/60p but the XA10 doesn't have it either & that is where Canon took the recording back end from for the C100 just as they took the recording backend from the XF100/XF300 for the C300.

1920x1080 50p/60p has been a rarity on professional cameras so there are few wedding shooters who could be using it so perhaps the guys that Andy met were looking to upgrade from 50i while still preserving that smooth motion video look.

Re: Canon EOS C100

A user elsewhere did a comparison between 1080i60 and 720p60 (both conformed to 24p) with his C300 and posted the results to vimeo. I thought some of you might find it interesting.

Here's the vimeo link:

Re: Canon EOS C100

Since the C100 announcement at the end of August, the lowest pre-order price I ever saw the cam offered for was 3,699 ex VAT (last weekend with H Preston Media) and I've been watching the pre-order price at all the reputable UK dealers closely. VAT is 20% in the UK currently, for those that don't know.

I see that in the last 24-48 hours some UK dealers have raised their prices back to somewhere near (or in one case 5 above) the price the C100 was offered at originally, typically then and now at around 4,162 ex VAT (which is a shade under 5K including VAT) - but since my company is VAT registered I only really care about the ex VAT price.

Some who were brave enough to pre-order from the right dealer may have got a good price :-) assuming the cam fits your specific needs and you see value in its best features like I do.

My guess (and hope!) is this price hike means a shipment of C100 cameras is destined to arrive in the UK very shortly. Indeed one UK dealer (H Preston Media again) is stating on their website that the C100 will be available from a specific date in mid-November.

On another topic, there are rumours that we will see a new official Canon C100 demo video within a week - hopefully one that enables an assessment of the quality that I expect this cam will be capable of!

Yes, they are currently editing a narrative piece & a doc style piece. We are hoping to show one of them at our C100 debut event we are having at Canon Hollywood on Dec 1st.

No 1080/p50/p60 was the deal breaker for me. Even a GoPro can do that nowadays.
Beside that the C100 is a nice camera.
